    I can't believe the amount of blown calls this year against the Tigers this year. And now today with the strike zone. You start to wonder with this kind of crap if there is something more to it than just human error.

    Tigers have no chance due to this POS umpire. He won't give Max pitches in the strike zone, and he's giving CC a couple inches off the corner. I hope Leyland gets thrown put today. He needs to stand up for his team.

    Yah, Mario just offers no passion whatsoever. Rod is more starstruck of opposing teams like the Yankees and mentioning his 'chat before the game at bp' then offering insight.

    The umpire is afraid to call the Yankee superstars out on strikes.
    He is letting them call their own balls and strikes today.

    Fielder scares me on pop-ups. Half the time, he staggers under them like he's not sure where the ball is.

    At some point in the next year or two, someone is going to have to say to Fielder "lose weight or become a DH. You're effin' killing us with your boulder *** defense!"

    Yanks didn't need any help from the ump on that walk. Ump is bad. Max not all that sharp either.

    Again, Scherzer isn't pitching well, but 3 of those walks are the umpire's.

    I just noticed Laird seems to have an annoying hitch when trying to throw the ball back to the picther after every pitch. He just cannot let the ball go. He holds it then waits then finally throws it back.

    He's done that for a long time. Joe Morgan noticed it a national game once and decided Laird was about to have the Yips, even though he's always done it and has always been an excellent throwing catcher who has NO history of throwing away the ball on the return to the pitcher. It's just Laird

    I've been wondering about that all game. He holds the ball up in the air for a second or two before flipping it back.

    He's been like that forever. It drives me nuts just watching it. It's got to annoy the pitchers a little bit.
