Combustion: JosephFinn: And now, back to Detroit for Big Boy Baseball and modern rules.Designated Hitter is the greatest thing in ALL of sports. Why would I pay money and spend my time to watch someone hit .071?Oh right, it's "strategy."
Cyberluddite: Having said that, I thought it was stupid and reckless for the Tigers to leave Fister in the game last night after he got hit in the head (and I'm not just saying that because, as a Giants fan, I wanted him out of the game so our guys would have a better shot at getting hits, though though I did). Yeah, he looked awesome both before and after getting drilled in the head, but it's not unheard of for someone to suffer head trauma and appear to be completely fine with no apparent effects, only to suddenly drop stone dead a few hours later from an undetected brain hemmorhage. It wasn't like it was a soft liner--it was a hard shot, which bounced off his head and landed all the way out in front of the center fielder's feet (if the center fielder had managed to catch it on the fly, it would've been an out, because it never hit ground after coming off Fister's head). I thought they should've taken him out and sent him to the hospital for tests. Hell, it was only the second inning of a scoreless game--they could've brought the scheduled Game 3 starter to pitch (when a pitcher comes in to replace an injured player, he's allowed to warm up for as long as he wants), and if he checked out OK at the hospital, then Fister could've started Game 3.

Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadu: I only caught segments of the game, but what was the Detroit 3rd base coach thinking in that 2nd inning? Why would you try and score your 300lb runner from 1st base with no outs?
