Another example of Leyland over-managing with his friggin obsession with lefty/lefty and righty/righty matchups. You leave Villarreal in the game there, he was rolling. Incredible how out of touch JL appears at times.

So true, I know platoon advantages can be important but Leyland puts too much stock in them. He'll put in inferior and in some cases vastly inferior players in the lineup or mound just to get the platoon advantage which defeats the whole purpose of it. Plus he just assumes that every lefty or righty has a drastic platoon split when in some cases that isn't even the case.

almost was right.

the tiger organization would be fools to not have an outfield of dirks, berry and jackson when they are healthy.

I have no stats to back this up, just a gut feeling, but if this game finishes like I fear it might, I think that will be the back-breaker to this season. Here's hoping the bullpen pulls it out.

Berry is scary and it isn't a nice play Rod that had error written all over it.

Te to Jim Leyland.....Phil Coke is not a lefty specialist if a game is in question that load can't get a lefty, riighty or my gradmother out and she has been dead for 25 years. If you have pitcher dominating a team and he gives up one hit let him pitch to the next batter. Stay in the run way and smoke a camel

I read today that JL says Berry might not play everyday when Jackson returns. While I realize that Berry isn't going to continue to hit .320, his defense and speed makes him a lot more valuable to this team than the dynamic duo of Delmon and Boesch. I'd bat him second until he cools off while playing him in left everyday. No reason for him to sit on the bench and watch those all-stars attempt to play.

Yeah Berry gets terrible jumps and reads on most balls, after watching him make what should be rather routine plays look interesting it makes me appreciate Austin Jackson's defense out there even more. With that said, he'd still be an enormous upgrade defensively over Boesch so once Austin comes back I hope Berry stays and plays RF(even if he doesn't have the typical right fielder's arm)

When everyone is healthy, the lineup should look like this:

1. CF Jackson

2. LF Dirks

3. 3B Cabrera

4. 1B Fielder

5. C Avila

6. SS Peralta

7. DH Young

8. RF Berry

9. 2B Santiago

That is 10 consecutive soft outs. can the Tigers get 6 outs before the Tribe scores twice . I doubt it.

Another defensive blunder. Cabrera has to know to get Brantley out there. If you're just getting one out, you might as well stand there and wait for Brantley to come to you. Better to have guys on first and second than second and third.

Wow. And now it's up to Papa Grande. Man I have no faith in him right now. With the heart of the Tribe order coming up, I fear it might get ugly.

This team can even make games they win feel like losses. They as awhole don't hit in the clutch thye disappear for innings, they play horrible defense and they play stupid baseball. Other than that Mrs. Lincoln how did you enjoy the play?
