Good grief, my teams are sucking.

I'd hate to be someone who owned Max Scherzer in fantasy, that's for sure.

The National League teams are killing us in inter-league play...it's ugly.

We lost 2 of 3 from the Dodgers, the Mets, the Rockies and now the Giants (assuming they don't sweep us). The worst part...they're killing us at home.

The only shiatty thing is that it means Barry Zito gets a win.

He should be arrested for theft.

And it was Verlander superman cape giveaway day at the park too. That must suck. Even worse. I hope.

Go Giants!

That's weird. Why did ESPN post a 49ers-Lions sco-

Ohhhh.

A save in a 15-3 game. Don't see that every day.

I mean, really? A Tigers lose thread?

Kyle Davies gave up 7 runs against the Rox in two innings. Does that get a thread?

Some save, too. He gave up the runs!

that has to be an error, there is no way he gets a save if he was up by 10 runs...

He pitched the last 3 innings of the game.

Nope, if you pitch three innings of "effective relief" you get a save even if the score is 100-0 when you come in and the final score is 100-99 when you finish up the game

According to the rules (new window) and Wikipedia, since Mota pitched the final 3 innings he gets the save no matter the score...

He pitched the last 3 innings of the game.


And looked like he was doing his best to get it back under 10 runs

That's what you get for signing Brad "Bad" Penny to your roster, he's a jonah.

JFC, we have Verlander and 4 trained chimps.

Someone remind me why we gave away Jair Jurrjens for a washed-up Edgar Renteria again?

My bad, I thought the game had to be within something like 3 runs to get a save....I stand corrected

/stupid stat

Verlander is the only legitimate starter they have. At this point, bringing back Bonderman would be an upgrade
 
2011-07-03 09:53:52 AM
Does the Spahn and Sain and pray for rain tactic work if you only have 1 pitcher and 80 some games left?

/ second half meltdown has begun.

that 30-3 game a few years back had a save awarded, too

Actually, that giveaway is today. Odd since Verlander isn't pitching again until Tuesday night in Anaheim.

I hated that trade as soon as it was announced. Renteria is horrible in the AL. And you don't trade pitching for hitting.

4 Tigers all stars, along with 3 more stupid Dembrowski decisions in CG, Polanco, and Joyce. They'd have had quite a team this year. But at least they're still paying Ordonez. That's the important thing.
 
2011-07-03 04:39:36 PM
4, including Jurrjens. Oops.
 
2011-07-03 06:16:44 PM
Well the Tigers fired their pitching coach today so the blow-out wasn't without consequences.
