Offense is finding its water level.  Cabrera looks awful, and a bottom 3 of Daz, Greiner and Alcantara has limited chance to do anything.  Not sure why Gardy would throw that lineup out there.  

Shoulda went with DiMaggio, Berra and Mantle instead.

Outscored by a cumulative 21 runs the past 4 games but a 2-2 record.

I'd settle just for moving Cabrera down in the order but unfortunately, with the injuries, we don't even have an option like Jacoby to replace him with right now.  Not like it would ever happen anyways.  It sucks he is not closer to 500 home runs.  When your DH is a .700 OPS guy, it puts that much more pressure on the other hitters.

Everyone is responsible for their own AB independent of whether the guy in front of them is raking or not.

If Cabrera had a 0.850 OPS, they'd probably have 1 more win.

Frankly pitching has hurt this team more than the hitting.

This I agree with.  Not even close really.

Not sure where to find this, but I’d wager that our starting pitcher did not go 5 innings in half of the games this season, which is nuts.

He got thrown out from LF.  There's no excuse for that.

Agreed. Nobody said otherwise. You just moved the goalpost. I was referring to your statement about watching the coach until the play is dead. Nobody runs to 1B watching their coach.

To be fair, I excused it, for all of the reasons I stated.

That was a fun 7th inning to watch. To rebound from 31 unanswered runs with a last inning win had no chance of happening the past couple of seasons. There is some life developing in this squad. Jeimer's ops is now in the mid .900s. **** the ******* yankees

I love that Casey play because even if it didn't happen exactly the way people tell it, the fact remains that he was thrown out at first from left field.  It is an important part of his legacy with the Tigers and crystallizes how slow he really was.
