bookies.....with the addition of keeny "camera slappin" rogers......shelton ropes....pudge  experince....team effort..the tigers are for real....they are....if they stay healthy.....they will win 90 plus easy

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by bookies_original on May 18th, 2006 at 7:07pm
not too shabby to be tied for first with the world series champs of 2005!
i think we have to keep guillen and ordonez healthy and of course keep the pitching on target!

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by PIRATE on May 19th, 2006 at 10:30am
yes bookies you are so right.....those to guys have to stay healthy with pudge. it is a team effort of course but they are on the right track. im excited for the tigers

How about some love for the Detroit Tigers. Best team in baseball.

How about it... the Romantics show up and play at Comerica Park and bam the next season the team is on fire.  ;)

OK, I guess it's time to send them an invite to Miller Park.......

They already got an invite... we visit in a few months.  :)

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by bookies_original on May 22nd, 2006 at 6:45pm
they are playing good baseball right now and hopefully the pitching will continue to hold up. yesterday's booing by the comerica crowd of dimitri young was totally uncalled for after his third strike out though.
Go Tigers!!

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by PIRATE on May 23rd, 2006 at 9:50am
the tigers are so unreal this year......this far through the season they have show they have the talent and as long as they are healthy they are playoff bound. finally the baseball fans of detroit can hold there head up.

perhaps they will play my los angeles dodgers in the world series

sorry brew but theres not enought room for both the dodgers and brewers ::)

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers

8-0!
all i can say is Go Tigers!

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by BrewCity on May 23rd, 2006 at 7:51pm
Andrew, what I meant was THE ROMANTICS need an invite to Miller Park.

As for Dmitri Young, he was booed because he roughed up his girlfriend, not because of the strikeouts.   >:(

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by bookies_original on May 23rd, 2006 at 8:06pm
well he allegedly roughed up his girlfriend.

another exciting come from behind win last night!!!
tigers displayed the "it aint over till its over" attitude and clawed their way back from a 4-0 deficit.
oh and brew, dimitri is on the dl.
hmm.

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by BrewCity on May 24th, 2006 at 8:17pm
Yeah, his feelings are hurt.

I hope he goes from the DL straight to the "Pen".  Now he'll have time to hang with his brother Delmon, the kid who threw his bat at an umpire and is serving a 50 game suspension.  Nice family.

Post by PIRATE on May 25th, 2006 at 11:08am
i dont recall how the tigers did last year.....did there have that winning record..... its been a number of years intil last year there really had a decent year. i think they have a team that can bring it to the post season. i think they should make a pitching move to guarantee a soild staff but we will see

Post by oldfriend on May 26th, 2006 at 10:29pm
Quite a comeback yesterday after giving up 6 runs in the first inning. Moroth( is that the right spelling) is going to be a problem all year though. This guy is nothing but a junk pitcher who couldn't break a pane of glass with his fastball. There are high school kids who can throw harder. You have to be a real master of junk pitches like slow curves and change ups to be effective, and this guy doesn't have it. Look for him to get bombed pretty regularly.

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by bookies_original on May 27th, 2006 at 12:21am
its actually spelled Maroth.
i hear what you are saying but i dont agree.
i think he is a decent pitcher and has decent stuff most of the time.
or at least stuff that he can fool the hitters with for the first couple of times around.

not sure what happened to him yesterday but geez, everyone is entitled to an "off" day of sorts.
he and nate robertson are my two favorite tigers pitchers.


hey, what about all us locals renting a suite at a tigers game and having a romantics/tigers reunion?

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by PIRATE on May 27th, 2006 at 12:42pm
yes its true..everyone has rough day....pitchers are known to have a few. the best have there bad days.
yes that was a great comeback.

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by Andrew on May 28th, 2006 at 10:47am
I was at the game tonight! So awesome! It was a near sell out and the place was going CRAZY. Unlike past years where people left in the 7th/8th inning... people stayed to the end to give the team a standing ovation when the won!

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by lmk_new on May 28th, 2006 at 8:46pm
I saw the game Saturday night.  It was great, and Verlander had so much speed on his pitches! 100 mph! The place was packed, and everyone stood up for the last pitch of the game to cheer the Tigers on.  It was fun.   :)

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by Justin Verlander on May 29th, 2006 at 10:34am
We are for real.  I had goosebumps pitching that shut out!

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by bookies_original on May 30th, 2006 at 6:50am
say it ain't so!
losing two in a row!
leyland reminded me of trammell today by leaving bonderman in way too long and allowed the tigers to bury themselves with no offense to dig themselves out today.

oh well, 3 more games versus the yankees!

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by bookies_original on May 31st, 2006 at 6:43pm
well that's the second one todd jones "gave" away!
when is leyland going to learn that he is not the go-to guy that everyone thinks he is?
the tigers sure showed their heart though in their come from behind tie!

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by Andrew on May 31st, 2006 at 11:22pm
Tigers are *gasp*... human. They actually lost a few... but before we can start giving up remember they had a 4 game slide earlier this year...!

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by bookies_original on Jun 1st, 2006 at 7:15pm
truthfully, i knew this home stand would be tough.
no offense behind nate last night.
he seems to be a hard luck pitcher.
he can pitch a decent game but the bats are silent.
mussina was just a little bit better last night.
good thing the white sox have lost a couple too!

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by oldfriend on Jun 2nd, 2006 at 9:53pm
Pretty amazing comeback last night. They needed that one. Let's see if they can string a few wins together and keep it going.

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by Andrew on Jun 2nd, 2006 at 11:33pm
Agreed... I think it was a big win. It would be great to go atleast 2-1 this weekend against Boston.

I hate ESPN sometimes... they are calling this past week/upcoming one a "reality check" for the Tigers. Funny the Tigers are still in first place by a few games! And what do you know the White Sox lose three games to a below .500 game but of course ESPN is not saying anything about that.

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers

CRAP! We should have one tonight. The more I see of Jones the more I dislike him...

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by bookies_original on Jun 3rd, 2006 at 7:40pm
like i said, he isn't the go-to guy leyland thinks he is.
i would have much rather seen ANYONE out there than jones in the 9th when we had a one run lead.

i hope leyland isn't morphing into trammell.

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by bookies_original on Jun 5th, 2006 at 6:49pm
awful home stand but oh well.
still the best record in baseball which is quite an accomplishment considering we are already into june.
we are sure going to miss maroth though.



Go Tigers!!

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by Andrew on Jun 7th, 2006 at 2:10am
I was thinking about going out to Chicago for one of this weeks game... you can take Amtrak out there for only 40 bucks round trip. I might do that next weekend to catch the Cubs/Tigers game.

ESPN finally shows the Tigers some respect: http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/columns/story?columnist=rogers_phil&id=2472034

Post by BrewCity on Jun 7th, 2006 at 4:16am
Andrew--DO IT!!  If you've never been to Wrigley Field, go!  It's a blast.  I started going down there for games once or twice a year when I was a senior in high school, and I still get down there whenever I get a chance.  It's a blast!  Great ballpark, great surroundings, lotsa fun to be had in the neighborhood, and if your team is playing there, all the better.

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by bookies_original on Jun 7th, 2006 at 4:47am
andrew, next weekend is the weekend the romantics are in manitowoc.  the tigers just happen to be playing the cubs.  you might be able to fit both in.  we are flying to chicago then driving to manitowoc.  let me know if you need a lift!

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by bookies_original on Jun 7th, 2006 at 9:51pm
leyland pulled another trammell last night.
took out zumaya
put in rodney
rodney walked three in a row
leyland left him in until cintron hits a three run homer and beats us.
question 1:  why didnt he just let zumaya come back in for the final three outs?

question 2:  when he saw rodney wasnt able to throw a strike, why did he give him so many chances?

jim leyland beat the tigers last night.  not the white sox.

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by Andrew on Jun 7th, 2006 at 11:13pm
Agreed... Zumaya should have stayed in longer... but if they made it to the bottom of the 9th Jones was set to go in...  :-/

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers

and to make matters worse, we lose monroe and pudge indefinately.

last night they showed the white sox what they are REALLY made of!!
;D


oh and brew, did you see this?

CHICAGO -- Radio station WDFN-AM (1130) reported Thursday that Tigers designated hitter Dmitri Young has entered the Betty Ford Center, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility in southern California.

whether its true or not, i sure wish him the best.  some folks just have a harder time fighting their demons.

Post by Andrew on Jun 10th, 2006 at 1:46am
Crazy! But Brew the Tigers have said he is not only on the DL but has currently left the team due to personal issues... they've been saying that for a few weeks. Wonder if he is still collecting  he 8 million dollars?

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by Andrew on Jun 10th, 2006 at 10:38am
So how many times in the last 2 weeks have the Tigers blown it in the 8/9th inning? Like 9837493208 times now?

I'm going to a game next week and I'm bring a "Must Go Jones" sign.  8-)

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by PIRATE on Jun 10th, 2006 at 11:57am
as you all know leyland took florida to the world series...we has a past of taking low budget teams to the playoffs..he brings the best out of them.....the tigers are better then a low budget team.....they will have great and bad home stands all in all..if there health or drink them selves to the dl...but puting the joking aside young has talent and is still young...i thonk he will boucne back just fine....i wish him luck.... there a playoff team....start saving your championship ticket money.

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by bookies_original on Jun 10th, 2006 at 6:49pm
zumaya didn't have it
rodney didn't have it
jones didn't have it
seay didn't have it

imagine that.  all the bullpen "stars" having an off night on the same night.
must be something in the canadian water.

andrew, don't fret.  its not all jones' fault.  all the pen contributed to that loss.  

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by Andrew on Jun 10th, 2006 at 9:16pm
Its just ERRR when you see the team do pretty well innings 1-8 and then blow it.

Pirate hopefully you are right and that the team will get back into a groove soon.

Thanks for the offer but before I booked my train ticket a good friend of mine offered me tickets to go with him to see Ringo Starr here in Detroit... you can't pass up Ringo Starr (well for me atleast... he was the first person I ever listened to...

Post by PIRATE on Jun 12th, 2006 at 7:14am
i noticed the tigers racked up another victory...a good 10 runs today
i think by the all star break will give a good idea where they stand...the half way point of the season.

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by bookies_original on Jun 12th, 2006 at 7:06pm
finally they gave nate robertson some breathing room with some runs!!
yeah pirate, i agree.  the all star break will tell the tale.
no matter what happens, it has been such excitement for the folks of this city!  who's my tiger?  well, i initially voted for ordonez but i might have to go back to my REAL favorite who is pudge.  seems to be having a much better year with all of his personal problems behind him now so he can focus on his game.

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by solodka on Jun 17th, 2006 at 4:21am
Did anyone happen to catch the Tiger's/Cub's game today?  After coming back from a commercial break during the 6th inning (I think), you could hear "Devil In Me" playing as the cameras were scanning the crowd and all of the Detroit fans in attendance.  The announcers went on to talk about The Romantics and the fact that "Devil In Me" was off of their last album that came out a few years ago, 61/49.  And at the end of that inning, going into a commercial, once again, "Devil In Me" was played!  Interesting!  Very interesting!  I think it was even playing at the end of the game too! ;)

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by BrewCity on Jun 17th, 2006 at 8:22am
I didn't see it, but my friend, a Tiger fan in Milwaukee, did.  When I told him I was going to see the Romantics in Manitowoc tomorrow, he said they were playing it during the Cubs game.  He thought they sounded bluesy.  Anyway, I suspect that Cubs announcer Len Kasper had something to do with it--he is known to be a HUGE fan of the band.

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by solodka on Jun 17th, 2006 at 8:36am
Well, I see that Len Kasper is actually from MI, born January 21, 1971 in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. He graduated summa cum laude from Marquette University in 1993.
He also used to announce for the Florida Marlins (2002-2004), and Milwaukee Brewers (1999-2001). I thought he sounded familiar!
Before then, he hosted pregame and halftime shows for the Green Bay Packers and was a co-host on a hot stove league show on the Brewers radio network. During the Late 1990's, Len fronted a Milwaukee based power pop group, Your Indentured Servants.

The Brewers are hot...they just swept Cleveland;  I know Detroit is hot, too.  I will be at Miller Park tonight for Game 1.  I predict the Brew Crew takes 2 of 3.  

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by Andrew on Jun 20th, 2006 at 2:14am

what a game!!!!!!!!!!
wow, bonderman was having maybe his best game ever!

thankfully the offense came through just when we needed it.

ok brew, you need the next 2.

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by BrewCity on Jun 20th, 2006 at 9:01pm
Wow, Bonderman was pretty untouchable.  But Doug Davis matched him.  The "offense" really consisted of two bunts that were misplayed into doubles.  Great game, though.  We will be back tonight!

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by Andrew on Jun 20th, 2006 at 11:54pm
It was a great game! Like the announcers said when you got a great pitching matchup it will come down to alittle small ball and an error and sure enough the next inning that happened.

It was wierd to see the words "Fielder - Home Run"  - as a kid I really loved Cecil Fielder and I remember seeing him hit one out of Tiger Stadium!


Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by bookies_original on Jun 21st, 2006 at 4:34am
my son's friend had won a contest years ago to have their picture taken with cecil fielder.  i still have it.  "prince" is a big kid!

excellent game.  great to see bonderman finally really "on" rather than just teetering.  

hope "miner" strikes gold tonight!

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by BrewCity on Jun 21st, 2006 at 4:44am
I hope Miner "gets buried" tonight--the Brewers will "give 'em Hell"-ing!   ;)

And, that Fielder boy can hit!  He's gonna be a much better player than his daddy.

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by Andrew on Jun 21st, 2006 at 6:18am
Brew... I agree with you he will be a great player down the road (if not soon). Have you ever watched Cecil Fielder back in the day? He could hit but could NOT run... they said last night he had 2 stolen bases in his career. His son on the other hand has 5 this year!

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers

looks like "miner" struck pure gold tonight!  ;)

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by Andrew on Jun 21st, 2006 at 9:25am
At the bat too! A double at his first at bat in the majors!

So crazy and strange to hear ESPN guys talking tonight about how they "hope we can cap off this great season with winning it all" and how we are here to stay and how we have a chance at playoffs. Crazy. Sadly they didn't even mention Miner who deserves atleast some props for tonight's game.

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by BrewCity on Jun 22nd, 2006 at 5:04am
Hey, Brewers salvaged one today.  Sounds like a pretty exciting game--I heard parts of it on the radio.  Luckily, I did hear the Rickie Weeks homer in the 7th!  The Tigers impressed me, though--I had not seen them yet this season.  If they can avoid injuries, they will be playing into October.  That pitching!  And now that they are done playing my Brew Crew, I can start rooting for them to win the A.L.

the tigers are having a unbelieivable season...they of course surpassed there games won back in 2004....47 ? games won the whole year.....the all star break would be a good judgement to feel how the team will finish if they stay healthy...but you can almost call this one a lil early.....tigers look good....they look like they are playoff bound.
bonderman did have a outstanding game....(outstanding).

as for my dodgers....they are starting to fade....in the back of my mind i was hoping for a dodger and tiger world series......a dodger vs boston or new york wouldnt hurt either.

Brew, I would have had to give up my first born to get a ticket to that game last night so I ended up watching it on tv.  Tried to spot solodka or her guests on the screen but there were just too many people.  Besides, she forgot to wear her purple feather boa!!! ;)

Saw them in Pittsburgh over the weekend...

Tigers won 9 to 8, although they gave up a pretty good lead and had us a little nervous until the final out....

It was fun to see them playing well (and at a game where there wasn't any rain!).   In addition, they had 2 fly-bys at the stadium with a Stealth Bomber (there were all sorts of things going on for the holiday weekend).  It was pretty cool!

As Tigers and Mets lead, Yanks and Braves try to play catchup
Updated 7/13/2006 11:49 AM ET      
By Mel Antonen, USA TODAY
PITTSBURGH — The Detroit Tigers, who haven't had a winning season since 1993, resume play Thursday with baseball's best record (59-29). But if the Tigers are going to win their first division title since 1987, they have at least one correction to make:

They have to find a way to beat contenders.

That's just one of many interesting developments to watch in baseball's second half. Can the New York Mets hold on? Will the Atlanta Braves fail to make the postseason? How many trades will clubs make?

TEAM-BY-TEAM OUTLOOKS: National League | American League

The Tigers, off five consecutive seasons with 90 or more losses, have spent the first half pounding American League Central teams, going 22-5 against the Kansas City Royals (league-worst 31-56 record), Cleveland Indians (40-47) and Minnesota Twins (47-39).

The Tigers are a combined 3-10 against the Boston Red Sox (53-33), New York Yankees (50-36) and division-rival Chicago White Sox (57-31). Detroit has a two-game lead on the White Sox despite a 1-5 record against them. They play each other 13 more times.

"We have a lot of games left, and it's not going to be easy to win the division," says Ivan Rodriguez, the Tigers' All-Star catcher. "We just have to not think about it and just do what we've been doing. If we keep the pitching healthy, we are going to be all right."

Detroit is a blend of youth and experience. Kenny Rogers (11-3, 3.85 ERA) leads a rotation that has come of age. Outfielder Magglio Ordonez (.312, 62 RBI), Rodriguez (.308), shortstop Carlos Guillen (.298, 52 RBI) and closer Todd Jones (23 saves in 26 chances) have been terrific.

Rookie pitchers Justin Verlander (10-4, 3.01 ERA), Zach Miner (6-1, 2.57 ERA) and Joel Zumaya (4-1, 2.08 ERA) have been key; Verlander could be the first rookie to win 20 games since Detroit's Ed Summers won 24 in 1908. Outfielder Marcus Thames (.297, 17 homers) has been a huge surprise.

Still, it's never easy to pitch during August and September in a division race, and that will be a new experience for the young rotation. The Tigers hope All-Star starter Rogers, 41, doesn't falter. He is 16-13 with a 4.80 ERA after the break in the last three seasons.

The Tigers, in first at the break for the first time since 1988, are the biggest surprise. But other new contenders could be around come September.

The Cincinnati Reds are four games behind the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Central, and the Toronto Blue Jays are five behind the Red Sox and two behind the Yankees in the AL East. The Reds have scored the NL's third-most runs (448), but their pitching has given up the fourth most (463). Their staff is 11th in ERA (4.78). Weak pitching is not a good sign for contenders.

The Reds acquired closer Eddie Guardado from the Seattle Mariners just before the break, and they are banking on the return of injured pitchers Grant Balfour (bullpen) and Brandon Claussen (rotation) in the next few weeks.

Toronto ranks 10th in the AL in ERA (4.66) and fifth in runs scored (472). But if A.J. Burnett comes back to the rotation from injury to support Roy Halladay, the first to reach 12 wins this season, the Blue Jays have a strong chance to be playing in October for the first time since 1993 — when they won the second of back-to-back World Series.

The Blue Jays, 7-4 against Boston, have eight games left with the Red Sox. Toronto, 2-3 against the Yankees, has 13 games left with New York. A four-game home series starts July 20.

"We actually have a chance, and it all sits in front of us," says Blue Jays All-Star outfielder Vernon Wells (.311, 21 homers, 66 RBI). "Our biggest improvement is offense. We play well against the Red Sox and Yankees."

Other questions for the second half:

Come October, could the Yankees and Braves be going home?

It's possible. The Braves have been in every postseason since 1991, the Yankees since 1995. The Braves went 6-21 in June and are 13 games behind the Mets in the NL East.

"In the past when we've come back, the teams haven't been as good, but the Mets are going to be hard to beat," says Braves All-Star outfielder Andruw Jones.

The Yankees needed the break, manager Joe Torre says. They not only have to contend with the Red Sox and Blue Jays but also the AL Central, which has become the toughest division in baseball. With the White Sox or Tigers, the AL Central could have its first wild-card team since the three-division format started in 1994.

ok did anybody else notice that during today's game, they played what i like about you in the background and must have played at least an entire minute of the song?? way more of a song than i have ever heard them play during any baseball game!!
could it be that they could hear the romantics rockin' by the riverfront all the way over to comerica park last night and that inspired whoever is in charge to play some romantics music???

ok, so the tigers lost today after blowing a 5 run lead.
you can't win 'em all!

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by bookies_original on Aug 4th, 2006 at 5:39pm
yeah, another loss again though against the drays.
leyland made another move that reminded me too much of trammell.
he took robertson out at the first sign of trouble after pitching 6 great innings.  you could tell robertson was furious because he was responsible for the two runners on base and once they brought in zumaya and one of the runners scored, nate just left for the showers.
leyland seems to have "pets" when it comes to his pitching staff and robertson is not one of them.
had that been bonderman in there, he would have left him to see if he couldnt pitch himself out of the jam.

Its funny right when he stepped up to bat I'm like "After all the stuff Pudge brings to the table for the team he so deserves to hit the home run ball right now."

That's what separates the men from the boys.  Here's where the Tigers either grow up or make us all throw up.  Can you tell I've been working on my sports cliches?

I'm predicting grow up.  It will certainly get them better prepared for the playoffs.

i went ALONE to the game last night, sat in section 129 (behind home plate) row 4, had on my "gum time" t-shirt and we still lost!!!
i think i jinxed him.
why can't the tigers bats explode when he is pitching?
they just couldn't pull it together for him last night......again!

the white sox roughed them up a bit too much. :o

at least they gave nate some runs last night to work with.
i heard a statistic last night by one of the announcers and that is he is third of all major league starters with the lowest run production behind him.
like i said, poor guy should have a few more wins but the offense let him down. :(

theres a number of pitchers out there on a good team that doesnt get the run production as there team mates do....but im sure by the season gets older they will knock in a few more runs for him.....i still think its safe to say the tigers are in....my dodgers must win the division to get in....in keeping my fingers crossed.

hope the rain out last night didn't hurt the tigers by giving them the extra day off.  the lead has been shaved to only 5 games up now and we still have the stretch run.  hope they can hang on.

oh and get well wishes for david ortiz.  hope it turns out to be nothing serious or career ending.

same get well wishes for Mariners Rafael Soriano hospitalized with a concussion.

and kudos to Florida manager Joe Girardi who missed Tuesday night's game against the St. Louis Cardinals , choosing to remain at home with his pregnant wife and brace for a possible hurricane.  proving once again that there are a few good guys left who put family first.

Now that Gary Shefield is a Tiger, I'm sorry, but I can no longer root for them.  In fact, I now have to root against them.  As talented as he is, his attitude will ruin that team.

brew, this just might be one of the few times we actually agree! ;)
sheffield was a bad move for many reasons--one of which you mentioned above.
i think we could have spent our money wiser elsewhere.
we could have done without this guy for sure.

leland will be a strong influence on sheffield....sheff has alot of respect for him and with sheff getting towards the end of his career i think he will be problem free for those tigers......its great to see the tigers take another step to make there team even better with the talent they already have.

bookies who was the last rookie of the year tiger.....wasnt matt nokes a rookie of the year in the early 80s..he was a catcher

lou whitaker was rookie of the year in 1978

i think there are as many people outside milling about as there are inside watching the game.  cheli's was lined up around the block by 10am.  
looks like detroit has tiger fever for sure!!

The tigers need a new manager. He's an idiot and the reason the Tigers didn't run away with the division. When a starting pitcher is pitching a strong game, you LEAVE HIM IN! But NOOOOOOOOOOO. After 60 or 70 pitches, we have to take him out and bring in someone from our weak bullpen. I remember guys like Mickey Lolitch pitching complete games all the time. You don't take the starter out unless he is in trouble.

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by PIRATE on Sep 23rd, 2007 at 4:11am
oldfriend..you nailed it. its not like the good old days. some of the good starting pitchers would complete 10 to 20 games. 120 to 150 pitches a game. todays starters make a greater percentage to money pitch less and seriously are hurt easier. i dont get it.

world series picks......yankeems.....cubbies

Title: Re: Detroit Tigers
Post by bookies_original on Sep 23rd, 2007 at 8:56am
yes, i agree the pitchers are too babied these days but i think its to try and lengthen their careers and create jobs for some short relievers or something.

rodriguez trade...... i was shocked but then learned he wasnt playing as a full time catcher etc. hes getting to the age where teams trade that player that makes us go hhhmmmmmmmm. ivan started in the big leagues very young and still has a good couple of years left he he stays healthy and is given oppurtunity.
