Jordan Zimmermann vs Homer Bailey

Can we avoid a sweep?

NO

Tigers will win this game. Mark it. Nothing like a Sunday afternooner vs. the Royals.

Zimmermann vs. Bailey, that would have been a pretty good pitching matchup 5 or 6 years ago.    I guess you can say the same about these two teams as well.

Chris Castellani is going to have a heart attack when the corpse of Homer Bailey throws seven scoreless and Zimmermann doesn't make it out of the third inning. Should be entertaining.

A part of me would be happy to see this team finish the season 39-123.  They’re almost bad enough to do it now.

When they get rid of Greene and Boyd and whomever else they’ll only be worse. I’d be glad for this to become a historically shameful spectacle that is viewed as the equivalent of throwing games.

I would be glad to see ownership and management face the universal castigation they deserve.  You can’t get this bad through poor luck and bad play alone. You have to do it on purpose.  I’d like to see MLB wrestle with the question of, “How do we keep other teams from doing what Detroit did by creating a situation that makes all the rest of us look bad?” 

Yeah I’m bitter. This is outrageous.  I shouldn’t post this late at night. But I really mean it.

Tanking is precisely the season long equivalent of throwing games.   Teams used to do it and not admit it, now it's openly talked about.

 I can’t access this site on my iPhone anymore thanks to this virus. 93C93EA6-BC93-4454-A640-515EED08819B.thumb.jpeg.0a0df86e2b5594a4b17151e47e6ff7a5.jpeg

It’s the only site this happens to.  It goes away then it comes back.  Repeatedly.  I am finding all the alleged steps to get rid of it too tedious.  So far none of them work.  And absolutely no problem on any other HTML site  Goodbye.

Hey, has anyone noticed that the Tigers have a hard time hitting and scoring runs.......like, at the bottom of the MLB. Yet, nothing is changing.   A hitting coach change of philosophy....  anyone?  It's a shame that almost all minor league players that the Tigers call up end up going backwards.  Of course they are facing major league pitching but Lloyd's philosophy has never worked anywhere he has been. And yet the organization keeps him.    It's so depressing to see the same thing over and over again every game.

I think that fact has escaped every member, never heard it mentioned before.

I think 60-year-old Lloyd could pick up a bat and hit better than some of these guys

And an announcer. How dare Hall-Of-Famer Jack Morris criticize soon to be Hall-Of-Famer Miguel Cabrera? That's the last game Morris gets to announce for Detroit. Go back to Minnesota, Jack.

The A's just traded for Bailey.  Maybe the Tigers can overcome TBD and not get swept

 

EDIT: Reportedly

Yep - Brian Flynn to start now.
