I'm excited! That .683 OPS in AAA should once again translate well to the majors.
Even better: he's hitting 6th tonight ahead of Thames and batting with the bases loaded in the 1st inning as I type this. (He popped up to the SS to end the inning by the time I hit submit)
Going into Wednesday, the Tigers were tied for third in the majors in home runs, with 80. They were 16th in the majors in runs scored, with 284.
Numbers like that make managers think about changes, and Leyland was thinking hard Wednesday. He’s been talking for a few weeks about needing a left-handed hitter, but Wednesday he went farther than that.
“We need to change some things,” he said, with the strong suggestion that he wanted to change some of the faces. “We need to cut down on strikeouts. We need to have better at-bats with runners in scoring position when the games are on the line. I guess that sums up the whole thing.”
