  1. Now you can listen to it. I whinged to MLB support on Twitter and they fixed the issue.
  2. Was there a problem with the GameDay broadcasts for this game yesterday? The archived audio for both radio broadcasts cuts off at the exact same moment in the bottom of the 7th. Sigh... before the Tigers ran up the score.
  3. So that's 9 in 44 for 5+ runs. For comparison, after 44 games the 2003 Tigers had accomplished the feat 10 times, but had also been shut out 9 times already.
  4. It's not an official game until the Tigers get their fair turn in the 7th, hence the anger.
  5. Don't worry, there's a likely Ryan Carpenter start coming up on Saturday to earn some interest back... assuming that game isn't completely wiped out by rain, which is a possibility.
  6. Why on Earth does he have a Wikipedia page? Anyway, he was apparently a throw-in player in the trade where the Tigers got Dizzy Trout, so that's exciting. This is actually a pretty sweet writeup that someone did on Salty, complete with some fun Tigers-relevant stories: http://www.faithandfearinflushing.com/2015/02/13/the-ballad-of-salty-parker/
  7. I believe this is the 17th -- only 8 of those in my lifetime (since 1979), including back-to-back DH splits in 1984.
  8. 9/22/2016 @ Minnesota Per B-R, the Tigers are 34-84 in games Farmer has appeared in, but hey, 5-4 this year. It's a whole new Buck... or something.
  9. Funny. Dan D -- You just don't run on Mookie Betts. Dan P -- Nope.
  10. I think that's 3 times now since being called up that Dixon has made an out trying to take an extra base on his own hit?
  11. Speaking of buggy whips... I'll confess to not listening to that many games last year, but when did he change from using the phrase buggy whip all by itself to "cleverly" attaching an intensifier to it that just so happens to match the type of hit? For instance, a home run is a quadruple buggy whip. I don't remember that from when I last consistently listened to games. I largely enjoy Dan & Jim's chemistry, but this is a bit of silliness that didn't really need to happen.
  12. Of course he does, he autographed it yesterday.
  13. Hey, Mercer was actually starting to swing a pretty good stick. He's 2nd (behind C-Stew) in Barrels per PA on the team.
  14. It wouldn't have been possible, but they had the extra day off. The top nerds took the opportunity to run an additional 20 million simulations, and they finally found a lineup without Harrison in the leadoff spot that works just as well as the one producing 3.05 runs per game, if not .01 runs per game better.
