  1. Heard Dan running through the scoreboard and talking about the Giants coming back late against the Brewers, so I had to check. Friend of the board Daniel Norris started the 7th with a 4-2 lead -- a walk and a home run to start the inning made short work of that. That's two bad appearances out of 5 since the trade.
  2. In the same breath, he said that he plans to be here for many years. So not contemplating retirement, I guess. I'm sure he wants to see the next Tigers World Series win.
  3. Huh. I missed the end of the game because I was busy not watching Black Widow at the theater, but just listened to it now. Sounds like it'll be a mix of Petry (they said 4 of the remaining road trips) and Craig Monroe (for the other 2, I guess), which is odd because the conversation at the end of the series in Texas definitely made it sound like Austin Jackson would be coming back at some point in the not too distant future. I wouldn't be surprised if this were Jim's last season, but I suppose they'll let him do home games for as long as he wants. They've more or less taken all of his formal responsibilities away during the broadcasts as it is -- he only did the manager's show for the home opener, doesn't do a lot of reads anymore, and doesn't even always handle the information about new pitchers coming into the game like he used to. Sorry to hear about your wife. Best of health to you both during treatment and recovery.
  4. Probably just worn down after the long night in the booth yesterday because of the rain delay. They also said that Petry would be joining Dan for the upcoming road trip to KC & Mpls, so that's something for the folks wanting more peaches in their diet.
  5. By my reckoning, that's the first time the Tigers have had back-to-back shutouts since Aug 2016 and the first time to have 3 in 4 games since May 2009. Not sure I would've called Urena, Peralta, & Mize to be the starters to lead the way in that feat.
  6. Agree with this, and the three that I cited have all been throwing 80-100 pitches per start (with the slight exception of Leiter who is not too far removed from TJ, so he just recently hit 80 for the first time). Pitch efficiency and effectiveness are an entirely different story, but we're literally just looking for guys who can take some load off the bullpen and the youngsters. Per McClosky's article from yesterday, it sounds like they're pushing any decisions in this space to at least the last week of July, which is around when the shackles will come back off of Mize.
  7. Holland, Norris, and Alexander were all planned to be multiple-inning relievers, I think. But one of them (Holland) has sucked and been hurt, while another (Norris) has been ill-suited to the role.
  8. Is it any starter's side day, or is that schedule all messed up because of the All-Star break?
  9. Oh, but getting Kepler there is huge for this inning.
  10. If the Twins manage to only get one here, then everything will get really stupid in the 10th.
  11. Gotta mix and match Holland and H Castro in the 9th. There's literally no one else to go to. Edit: Never mind. H Castro has actually played already and been removed. He probably couldn't pitch even if anyone wanted him to.
  12. The Twins were due for one bullpen meltdown of their own in this series. They're not 14th in the AL for nothing.
