Time to put the Tribe out of their misery, turn that four game losing streak into seven. They just got battered by the A's, so let's add to the embarrassment.

Clobber Kluber.

Actually, he's been pretty solid lately. This could shape up to be a low-scoring affair.

Tigers 3

Indians 1

"I don't care if you signed Pudge... I'm the catcher. I wanna play catcher. You can't make me take it off. It's mine. I bought it myself. With my own money. Mom said I could be catcher."

FYI,

if the Tigers had DFA'ed Coke and not optioned Shelby Miller (where is the outrage about that?), the collective ERA of the current players on the major league team would have been 2.76.

the Tigers lead MLB with a starters' ERA of 2.64.

Tulo is batting .571 at home with a 1.704 OPS.

#Tigers still at hotel in Boston. First pitch in Cleveland is in 6 1/2 hours. Travel might end up being their toughest test of the trip.

Good thing Smyly was sent out ahead.

At this point they could have rented some buses and gotten to Cleveland by now.

What happens if the Tigers don't make it? Would they be forced to forfeit?

emergency call-up of every Mudhen?

Davidsb...if you don't fix the dates in the game thread you are jinxing the game.

It's pretty incredible where this team is coming off the Fister trade, injuries to Rondon, Iglesias, Dirks, no Fielder and no Benoit. I guess that's why Dombrowski gets paid.

It feels like we've been in Boston forever. Finally headed to the airport.

If it had meant that we acquired Shelby Miller, then I wouldn't be that upset about it.

As long as everyone is wearing their Zubas, it doesn't matter where they are.

We're bound to lose a game at some point. The crappy travel condition and coming off a sweep of the Red Sox make me think today may be the day.

But nah, we got Ace Smyly pitching.

Tigers - 5

Indians - 0

I didn't think to look for Smyly in any of the dug-out shots last night - did they think to send him to Cleveland yesterday?

I sometimes think that arriving as a strung out mess with no batting practice probably helps these guys. Might even help if they have had a few beers.
