08/10/2014: Detroit Tigers (Price) at Toronto Blue Jays (Buehrle) - 1:07p

4 pitch inning is pretty much inexcusable. If the two guys in front of you go down on two pitches, you have to work him a little. I expect those 3 runs in the first are our 3 for the day.

After two outs on two pitches, it's going to be a quick inning no matter how many pitches you take. You need to get on base.

The pitcher knows you aren't swinging first pitch in your at bat, so you end up behind in the count pretty easily if you are scared to swing.

I honestly don't have a problem with the approach.

I can see it, but I think with Price having labored in the first you have to prioritize extending the inning. I guess getting on base is as effective as taking a few more pitches, but I dunno.

DJ Martinez???

JD gets an RBI double! He's warming up as well.

Welcome back, JD. Doesn't really matter whether you're back or not, because you're all we've got.

Nick k's with runners at 2nd and 3rd...

As an aside, Hunter has now gone 93 appearances without a walk versus Buehrle.

And now the inning is up to Avila. Yikes.

And he's quickly down 0-2...

And he k's looking at a ball 6" off the plate.

Could have been 6-0 easily, but I'll take a 4-0 lead.

There must be a better hitting catcher SOMEWHERE that we can have play for us every day. This is now beyond absurd.

What a zone today. This is how teams facing Glavine must have felt.

Ausmus ejected? Hell yeah, now we should win this!

I really hope the ump doesn't start squeezing Price to compensate. Although, if he keeps getting swinging strikes it won't matter...
