I think it is 31, the 13 inning totals::

 the opponents have 31 runs, 33 hits, 11 walks, 10 doubles, 8 home runs with a total of 9 strikeouts. The Tigers: 4 hits, 1 walk, 16 strikeouts. Yikes

I wonder what the record is for most unanswered runs? Maybe the Tigers can break a record for futility

His veteran presence will steady a confused young staff.  

At the beginning of this “season“ I remember Boyd being referred to as a veteran presence that could teach younger pitchers.

I don't think anyone here is delusional enough to think the Tigers have arrived. Starting pitching has been historically bad. That should start to remedy as soon as next year. But positives are taking place too - maybe a few of the current position players will have a role going forward. And Fyi, tuna has a crazy shelf life.

You make being delusional sound so bad.

Ha, I am watching the St. Louis broadcast and they are talking about the 1968 World Series and how they admired guys like Lolich, Horton and Kaline. But also adding that Tim McCarver is probably watching the game on tv at home and probably yelling at the screen for them to stop taking about it. And that there is one Cards player from that team (I missed the name) who says he is more bothered about it now than he was 50 years ago. Mike Shannon, in the booth, says he has gotten over it but it took awhile. 

i hate the cardinals so much.  right up there with the red sox and the white sox.

I laughed at the sports page today when they mentioned he would be on about a 60 pitch limit. Does anyone really believe he'll get out of the 1st inning? Batting practice for the Cards.

I believe the player that said he is more bothered by it now than then is Bob Gibson. I believe I read that a while back. Sadly, he is suffering with pancreatic cancer.

is Jeimer the real deal?  Had a great stretch in 2017 when we first acquired him, and now this season.  He was always supposed to hit, but the 2018/19 seasons were abysmal, so not sure if I should buy into the hype this year.

probably the best story coming out of this year.  if he is even a solid hitter that helps this team so much moving forward.

With the exception of Soto, Turnbull and to some extent Norris the Tigers entire staff just looks pathetic. 

And its not just the numbers its just the overall stuff and command.  They have neither, you compare it to the electric stuff of pitchers that almost every team feature and its night and day.

Our guys throw 92-94 with no wipe out secondary pitch while other teams pitchers throw in the upper 90s with atleast one plus chase pitch.

If they had command it would be a different story but they have no control on top of ordinary stuff.  It's just not a fair fight at this point.

If there was an ASG this year we have had to start referring to him as Multi Time All Star James McCann.

One inning, no runs allowed.

St. Louis must be worn out from all that base running in the 1st game.
