PostSubject: Already, there's a lot to like about Tigers   Wed Apr 02, 2008 3:11 am

There's a Lynn Henning article on detnews.com that exactly reflect what i was thinking after the Opening Day game.

Here is the full article.
http://www.detnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080402/OPINION03/804020393/1129/SPORTS0104

His final statement:
The bullpen pitched well enough for the Tigers to have won Monday. The starting pitching and offense performed equally well. But the Tigers were nipped by a tough and steadily improving Royals team that deserved to win, even if I'm still trying to figure out how the Tigers lost.


That's what i was thinking after the game when i was in bed and could not sleep. How the *** did they lose this game??

I think it was two things.... the first one....

we stranded a lot of runners. In order to win it isn't just getting on base, we need to get home, which we didn't do a very good job at. When the bases were loaded, we scored one run. Not to say that one run isn't good. But come on, bases are loaded, and I'm pretty sure the run was knocked in by a walk! meaning we had another chance. This, and multiple other situations throught the game was part of the reason.

The second, I know that pitchers face right-handed hitters/left-handed hitters better depending on who it is, but they will never improve if they can't TRY facing them. They put Grilli in to face one guy, he struck him out, and they took him out! I think they need to trust in the bullpen a bit more, and give them a chance instead of taking them out right away.

Actually that's what i first thought too. We had too many LOBs. I checked the box score and KC had 18 LOBs too.

I completely agree with your second point about the pitchers and giving them chances to improve.

zoom can't play for long periods. Usually only one or two innings. Meaning closer or 8th inning..... and I'm pretty sure you want Jones as closer.

And to think they questioned us getting Renteria, saying he was no good in the American League, I think today shows he still has his stuff! Only Tiger to get hits! Good job :edgar:!!!!!
