  1. Might have to wait a while for that to happen.
  2. It's a shame they don't do the "Silent Treatment" anymore.
  3. Anyone listening to Dan and Jim? I swear Jim just said sh*t (softly and in the background but clearly audible) when the Cleveland batter got hit with the pitch.
  4. My Mom wrote in my Baby Book - "Age 3 - Likes baseball." My Dad played baseball for the Industrial League. All the factories had teams back then.
  5. Now Joe Jimenez on the other hand - I can't stand watching him pitch as the results are too predictable.
  6. You won't confuse Boyd, Turnbull and Carpenter with Verlander, Scherzer and Porcello but I like watching them pitch.
  7. Never saw a balk called on back to back pitches before.
  8. Looks like Rodriguez picked a bad time to jake it. The Tigers would have been out of the inning.
  9. Ha! Exactly! More like Lions fans sometime in August of 1958 when the World Champion Lions lost to a college team. Perhaps the greatest example of foreshadowing ever.
  10. Thanks for the response! 🙂 But how many high choppers or slow rollers are there on average during a game? None? One? So the strategy for the "contact play" is based on the batter to do exactly that right at that specific moment. You have better odds of the Lions winning the Super Bowl. 😂 Well - not really but you get my drift.
  11. I say this all the time and have for years, the Tigers seem to be the only team in baseball the consistently uses the "contact play." I will ask again - as I always do - what is the strategy? Are the Tigers gambling the that a major league infielder will boot the ball? Throw it wildly? There is an extremely low chance of that happening. Even if the batter singles cleanly up the middle there is no reason for the contact play as the runner from third would score easily on such a hit.
  12. Dickerson completely jinxed that but I never thought much of Jimenez.
