    So on a day that you rest Chick-Fil-Avila you also start Raburn and Inge? What the hell are they doing?

    Does Boesch need a day off here? And if he does, can't Dirks play in right? Can't Dirks DH? Am I out of line here?

    The rational is (seemingly) Inge is a better hitter against LHP than Dirks. It is flawed, IMO...Dirks should be in LF and Young should DH...Leyland is putting out a flawed lineup to try and appease sub-par players. I have no problem putting Miggy at 3B to appease him, I don't feel the same way about Young.

    Inge should be gone, Young should be a nearly full-time DH, Dirks should be the starting LF...IMO anything short of this puts us at a stark disadvantage.

    Sale is left handed. You could question not letting Cabrera or Fielder DH. Inge instead of Dirks is a good decision.

    77 pitches through 4 and his fastball is down from 93-97 to 90-93. If you can't hit him, get him out of there.

    That's at least 4 put outs for Cabrera today.

    No, it isn't. Dirks hit .323 against LHP last year. Brandon Inge is done. Dirks is just getting started. More of this lefty-righty match up crap. Put your best players out there. Inge is supposed to be around for his defense. There is no scenario at all where Inge is better than Dirks.

    Can Raburn not play ANY position without looking like a juggler at least once during a game?

    Bad base running by Dunn. The Chicago fans have to be really tired of him.

    He had 31 at bats against left handed pitching last year. I'm not ready to call it based on that.

    and why does a 27 year old Boesch, who loves to hit lefties have to sit out while he is on a 5 for 12 streak (with power) on a day game after a day game.

    This lineup makes no sense to me.

    That's enough to convince me he's better than Inge. Check Swing Charlie with a pop up. At least he sort of hit it out of the infield.

    At least Gerald Laird puts a charge into the ball, even on a play that should have been an out (CF played it into a double).

    That's ruled a double. Years from now people will wonder how someone could not score from second on a Gerald Laird double.

    It's a small sample size, but Dirks has shown to hit LHP quite well. In 32 ABs against LHP he is has a .344 OBP to go with a .563 SLG, I would rather give Dirks the ABs (and outfield defense) than Inge. We know what Inge is, we don't know what Dirks can be.

    Brandon sucks but he really likes to play baseball and he tries real hard and wears his socks high. And he's a team player just don't ask him to catch because he won't do that, no matter what.

    Dombrowski should pioneer a new position in baseball called the lineup manager...specifically for teams like the Tiger's that have a good game manager but one that is incompetent at setting lineups.

    I'm guessing that "single" to Elmon would have been an out for anyone else.
