  1. It is time, the entire franchise needs a hitting reboot. The guys up in Detroit are for sure overmatched, but they seem to have no skill in putting the ball in play, situational hitting, and even the new fad, launch angle. I heard, of all people, Al Kaline, on the radio pre-game show, and he essentially called out the entire hitting of the franchise. He said it was embarrassing how many times they do not do the little things in terms of getting the runners over, getting them in from third, going the other way, Bunting, and then he railed over and over about how bad their strikeouts have been. I think it is clearly time to clean house on the hitting side. Bring in new coaches up and down the organization, try a new approach. Again, the talent up in Detroit is awful, but other than small improvements from time to time from a few players, it has been a brutally bad year, on top of some of other poor years, on the offensive front. No guarantees that changing the staff makes any difference, but with what he have seen, it is clearly time to go in a different direction.
  2. 13 straight to the Indians, that is hard to do. I think the Tigers are averaging less than 2 runs a game in those 13 losses. Brutal.
  3. Like a lot of games on the recent road trip, the Tigers are actually playing a pretty good game tonight. Some good pitching, good defense, and so far, a couple of runs. May not turn into a win (like many of the games on the road trip did not), but after last nights mail it in game, a nice change. I can;'t believe they can lose 60 games at home this year if they don't go at least 5-15 at home the rest of the way. That is tough and really tough on the home crowd
  4. Nick with another HR for the Cubs tonight. Going into a pennant race sure did energize him.
  5. I actually did, got some sort of survey as I had season tix for about 7 years (27 game package, dropped them last year), I said in it that I would not consider getting tickets again until they changed the overall hitting approach of the entire org. Of course, what one fan thinks should not influence in any way what the organization decides to do, I was able to give at least the ticket office feedback on my thoughts
  6. Zimm (gulp, can't believe I am saying this) looks good tonight and in his past 3 starts. Interesting to see he and DVH start to do better, while Boyd and Turnbull have really fallen off.
  7. I vowed in mid June to not go back to another Tigers game until they replace Lloyd McClendon. Got offered free tix tonight and turned them down. This offseason they need to make some wholesale changes with their hitting approach/coaching, from the top down for the organization.
  8. Was that really Joe's fault? If Mercer is in at SS, the lead off guy is out, then the walk, then that grounder to the hole is made again on a force play, and that ball up the middle makes it 1/3 with two outs. Kiermeyer would not have bunted, but if Joe gets him out, Choi never comes to bat. I put that on the D, and as someone else said, on Gardy for not putting his best D out there, the IF should have been: Lugo, Mercer, Goodrum, Dixon Oh yeah, and maybe the bats get more than 4 runs too
  9. unreal, Tigers are sooooooooooooo bad this year. A total clown show in the 9th, they may lose the rest of the games on this trip.
  10. Clown show on D in the 9th. should be out of the inning and now bases full with one out. It would be a SHAME for Boyd to not get the win today
  11. solid outing for Boyd. Tampa's offense has been somehow worse (so far) then the Tigers this weekend
  12. Good situational hitting this inning, a 2b to knock in a run, and a ground out / sac fly to get Reyes around. Nice to see,
  13. Can the Tigers hold on and win 2-1 today? The hitters are most likely done scoring. I cannot recall a year, even 2003, when the overall hitting was so bad for the Tigers
  14. I was just going to say he was not sharp at all Also, what in the wide wide world of sports was Castro thinking on that shallow fly ball? He for sure had a chance to throw the runner out at the plate, yet he nonchalantly just jogged in, caught it and casually tossed it to 2nd.
  15. Wait someone else posted about the Tigers and RISP other than me?
  16. Cant dispute any of those. I will take it a bit further: The Tigers draw a walk The Tigers make at least one error The Tigers score 2 runs Boyd pitches well, but gets the ND Bullpen gives it up late in a 5-2 loss
  17. Some interesting moves today by the Tigers: 1. Josh Harrison DFA’d 2. Sandy Leon DFA’d 3. Blaine Hardy sent down to Toledo 4. Edwin Jackson put on the 40 man roster and will start for the Tigers tonight 5. John Schreiber added to 40 man roster and called up to Detroit
  18. Chicago looks like an athletic team. They turn a lot of tough DP's and I have seen some other really nice plays throughout the field. As compared to the Tigers clown show out in the field …..
  19. Mercer bounces into a 5-4-3 DP with the bases loaded, then he commits an error that already has led to one run. The Tigers still only have 1 home run with 2 or 3 guys on in the last 58 games.
  20. there is literally one little cell, right over the park, according to the radar. This could be a quick delay. Hopefully DVH can go back out there, he looks pretty good today
  21. Beckham 3 run home run in the 9th to make it 9-1 against the Angels. The one before that was a Jacoby Jones 3 run HR in early June, and about a week before that was the Miggy grand slam,
  22. Interesting stat, in the Tigers last 49 games, they have a total of one home run with 2 or more on the bases. One. That is in almost a third of the season.
  23. We all know of the Tigers struggles to score runs this year, but they absolutely the worst, by far, with RISP. Is it due to them being young? Being poor hitters? (miggy is hitting over .400 with RISP) Poor approach? Not clutch? Whatever it is, this is a telling stat, as they are hitting .215 with RISP, the 29th place team is at .240.

  24. Pinch running for Cabrera last inning could cost the Tigers, as his spot is on deck. When was the last time the Tigers hit a late, 2 out HR with runners on base to tie or take the lead? This team could use one of those
  25. That was a vintage old school Miggy at bat, fouled off a tough pitch, then roped one up the middle for an RBI single
