5/13 @7:10 Houston Astros vs Detroit Tigers

It’s cruel how they keep giving us hope. It’s like going to a palm reader in a rundown strip mall and they tell you that your “lifeline is off the charts.“

MLB iOS app now allows radio audio overlay when watching the mlb.tv stream! I’ve been waiting for this feature.

I’m predicting a huge breakout game for Miguel Cabrera today. 

Like, a double?

I wonder if Gardenhire curses with resentment, his chubby cheeks rosy red with fury as he hunts and pecks to key in each letter of each name into an Excel file on his ThinkPad until printing out this sheet and shattering yet another laptop against the dugout wall the same way a rockstar will destroy a guitar at the end of a performance. A part of me hopes he’s old-school enough that he would actually do that.

After all the frustration we’ve had with Cabrera the last few years, if the Tigers actually moved him he’d probably hit 78 homers his first season and go into the Hall of Fame as a Tampa Bay Ray.

Injury talk:

-Tyson Ross is not feeling any better...will visit doctor who performed his thoracic outlet surgery in 2016.

-Jordan Zimmerman is still feeling elbow discomfort when he throws in the outfield. He has been out since April 26th and is now out longer...initially they thought he would come back at the end of May.

Now you’re just making up disabling physical complications.

"They" tend to be overly optimistic when explaining the truth to the fans.  I knew better!  I think Zimm will require TJ surgery and will never pitch for the Tigers again.  IF true, ..then perhaps his MLB career may be over as well since I cannot imagine any team signing him as a FA after 2020 with his injury history.

It would be pretty fantastic to lose four of the presumed top five starters for the season. 

Fortunately, Turnbull and Norris have been able to step in without much issue. But I can’t imagine anyone seriously considered the possibility of having to use the ninth starting pitcher before the end of May. Not to mention, guys like Burrows and funkhouser were probably considered as guys you could call up at this point of the season if necessary. 

Amazing.

What are you up to, Jacob Turner?

When you consider the recent injury history of the pitchers involved, it's not shocking that they have a lot of injuries.  I suppose you never expect to lose four pitchers for the full season though.

I may be wrong but I think Turnbull made the team as our 5th SP.  So we've lost 60% of our SP staff.

Looks like a rather sparse rebuilding crowd.
