Game 36 Recap

Yes, Joe Strummer, it does appear this season is going "Straight to Hell"

You need more than just a scorecard to follow this year's Tigers, you need the DSM-IV. The Tigers offense has switched from Manic to Depressing so many times this year, the concession stand should sell lithium. And here we are again, less than 24 hours after an uplifting come from behind victory...a dull thud of a game. But, is the offense really to blame? Just once I would like to tune into a game in the third inning and not see the Tigers at a multi-run deficit. A good game for the starter is reaching 100 pitches by the 6th inning. If thier's going to be one coach fired for the Tigers struggles, it has to be Chuck Hernandez. 3 Tiger starters have ERAs over 6. Those are bad numbers in slow-pitch softball, let alone the Major fricking Leagues. Still, amazingly, there is hope. It seems no one in the AL Central wants to win. The Tigers are only a half game ahead of Seattle for the worst record in teh AL, yet there are only a 4 game win streak away from going to the top of the Central. It's just that whole "winning games" thing that's proving to be troublesome.
