Huge 2-out double for Greiner and Willi C with the dinger, up 5-3. Boyd has been getting strong run support.

Earlier Steve Stone sort of poked fun at Avila for letting McCann go and keeping Greiner.

but who cares?  No reason to rush it.

I think Case Mize cares.  Maybe his mom and dad, etc.

That one big hit makes up for a whole year of terribleness.

It isn't helping Mize's development to be sitting around not doing anything.  He has to be a better option than a few of the guys in the rotation.

I suspect you have a better idea on how to develop a MLB pitcher than a MLB franchise who views the individual in question as their #1 pitching prospect.

You are correct.  Since I have never developed all the wonderful talent that Avila and company have, I should just shut my mouth, not have an opinion, and let Avila and the experts work their magic

I now know that message boards should not be a place to get ideas out.  Enjoy your conversations.

Is Matt Boyd one of those guys that got hot for a little while (but really was never that good) and now its over or is he just going through a bad slump?

In a 60 game season, each starter gets 12 starts. We are 25 percent of the way done with Boyd for the year and his ERA is over 10. He’s been really bad in all 4 outings. 

He will be 30 years old next year. He’s had 1 season in his career with an ERA below 4.50.

He is just not good.

Gardy,   you gonna manage like Ausmus you can go bye bye too. 

 

You are telling me that Casey Mize won't do better than THIS?

After McCann lined out it would’ve been the prudent move to take him out. But he has to execute better on Robert. He has to execute better, period. He’s been absolute dog **** so far this season.

I don't think the Tigers motives are purely developmental right now. I'd wager a majority of it is based on Mize and his super 2 status. They clearly need a starter and he is nearly 24 years old and gettting paid handsomely to pitch in glorified scrimmages.

And we're also fans...I don't want to devote my time to Matt Boyd turning into a pumpkin and Tyler Alexander. If Mize is healthy, let him get reps in up here even on a limited pitch count. Unless the goal is just to punt the season and just get through it.

Did Gardenhire finally bring Mize into the game?
