    MLB umps are rally bad. How someone can have a job in the highest possible position and be so bad at it, yet last for literally decades without any obvious consequences is a black mark on baseball.

    It would be really cool to see something of monumental proportions happen here... like a rally to take the lead.

    Wow, insane move sending Berry home down 4, lucky break on a bad throw up the line. Great job by Fielder off a lefty though.

    Unreal! A close call went in our favor for a change. Perhaps karma will too.

    It would be cool if Angel Hernandez hadn't blown that call earlier so it was 6-4 with 1 out, but maybe he called Berry safe there to make up for that

    Ondrusek is your typical mediocre middle reliever putting up a good ERA. Hopefully the Tigers can tee off on him

    Some umps favor one team, like the ump with Scherzer on the mound against the Yanks. Hernandez just pisses off both teams.

    Delmon has to have the most predictable bats in the bigs. It's a Brandon Inge level automatic strikeout with that pitch. And now you have a bunch of easy outs in the 8th. Well, hopefully they can get Cabrera and Fielder up with some men on in the 9th.

    Typical horrific AB by Delmon. That was as ugly as it gets. Horrible swings at horrible pitches.

    I was just going to make this same comparison. It is so much like Brandon Inge with 2 strikes. You throw the breaking ball away and you got a strikeout. I am surprised he wasted a pitch on a high fastball right before that.

    I'm surprised he laid off the one that was at eye level. He sure looked tempted.

    Dickerson: Baker finally gets the matchup that works.
    Ben9753: Baker finally gets past the first 4 hitters in the Tigers lineup.

    Wow it's getting harder and harder to watch Delmon. I'm beginning to think there isn't a rock bottom.

    As bad as Boesch is, at least he is not guaranteed to swing at the down and away breaking ball with two strikes. I think I might even prefer him up there over Delmon.

    Delmon is a classic example of a guy with a natural gift but just doesn't have the smarts to do something with it.

    Somehow is average is still hovering around .250, which I guess is partly a testament to his natural hitting ability. Most hitters would be below .200 with the approach Delmon takes.

    May have to DL Smyly?

    Are they tempted to call up Turner? I hope not, he isn't ready, but who else do you go to?

    I'm done watching the game but if this is true, credit Leyland for thinking outside the box for once and going against the grain. Personally, I think Porcello should be moved to the bullpen full time until he gets his act together. We can call up some other scrub with less potential to get bombed as a starter.

    Angel Hernandez graduated high school with a C-minus average. I guarantee it.

    If the blister has been affecting Smyly that might be the best news for the long term that we've had this month.
