The way we played the first two I am happy with winning 1 in this series, and will be ecstatic if we split the series. Also, I agree Porcello should have pitched a few more, the game was lost, why not save the bullpen until he is at 100 pitches, other than saving him the embarrassment.

No they aren't, they are playing like garbage, I didn't say they won't turn it around, I'm just saying I don't understand why they can't get it together

Don't forget that the teams they are playing against right now are doing pretty good. That last series was against the Rangers and they are on fire right now!! Granted we aren't doing that well but the teams we have been playing against are.

The Mariners are awful, by the numbers they are the worst hitting team in the league. Not to mention that they just got served up a perfect game by Chicago's number 5 starter. And why on Earth was Inge and his .096 batting average (he did manage to raise it to .100 by the end of the game) in the starting lineup? Just awful.

I keep seeing Dave Dombrowski at the Biggby Coffee in Birmingham in the mornings lately. If the Tigers keep performing like this, somebody is going to dump a hot cup of coffee on him while he reads his paper.

I'm just a casual observer so take that for what its worth...

But to me the way the MLB playoff is structured any bumps in the road are somewhat note worthy, specially ones where you are outscored 32-16 and are 1 for 5 in those games.

Since this isn't the NHL where half of the teams make the playoffs, and given recent history, since this is not New York, Tampa, or Boston a wild card spot can pretty much be ruled out it all comes down to winning your division and little bumps in the road like this could be things that are looked back on later in the year as serious lost opportunities.

The Rangers are not on fire, the rangers are fucking awesome. They are hands down the best team in the american league. They've also wont he ALCS two years in a row.

The bats aren't currently rolling like they should be. miggy and fielder are hitting well, and avila and jackson have stepped up once or twice. Where is the rest of the lineup?

The pitching has been miserable.

Fielding...where do I begin.

Cabrera has 3 errors already. Inge has made how many stupid plays? How does he only have 1 error? Nice double play ball he mishandled last night to go with his .100 batting average.

I'm ok with cabrera making a few errors, he is getting used to a new position, and will make up for it at the plate.

They have a long way to go, and only need to win the central, which should be pretty easy, but with the money spent on fielder they should be walking thru teams, they better get a second basemen who can hit figured out.

Hitting will come together, but Tigers need a #5 pitcher and a decent second baseman if they wanna be good. I think the best bet right now would be to have Santiago as full time 2nd baseman.

Last night was absolutely pathetic.

I didn't see the beggining but it looked to me that in the 6th our 3rd, 4th and 5th batters were a combined 0-3 and were on their second at bat, is that even possible?

Tigers started out 5-0, and one two of them walk off, blew the 1 game twice. In the last 15 they are 5-10. Pitching sucks, hitting sucks(should have had at least 2-3 more tonight) fielding sucks, error on easy fly ball that scored a run, then lose the game after 2 wild pitches. This Is quite possible the most overpaid team ever, I want to think it will turn around, but just feels like the other years where the tigers were suppose to be "great" and ended up a bunch of overpaid, underachieving players. Tigers have been lucky the last few years with having no names pull through, but that ain't always gonna work for ya.

Shhhh, let me rant, deep down I know they'll turn it around, just realty frustrating to see them lose to shitty team, or lose to good teams in shitty ways. And there are 141 games left

Nice to see a win, even if Veleverde made it look hard at the end. Inge gone, Raburn possibly injured, the Jew hater gone for now. This season is starting to look better.
