You know what was the most disappointing thing about last night? There were two that stuck out to me.
1) What was Pudge, Hernandez, and Leyland doing letting V pitch like he did? Even the announcers had picked up on that he wasn't pitching but just throwing. So how many times did we see Pudge go out to the mound? Hernandez come out to talk? Leyland to sprinkle some of his magic dust? Zero. I was screaming at my set for Pudge to go out there and tell him to slow down and try to locate a pitch. But they did nothing. It was almost as if they couldn't believe what was happening.
2) What happened to the Tiger bats after that inning. I think the next inning Westbrook threw less than ten pitches. Disgusting to see them revert back to poor plate strategy at the hint of adversity.
**3) What is Nefi Perez doing in the line up. Grrrrr.
On a side note. I wonder what there record is since Dmitri came back. Seems we've sucked alot since. Coincidence for sure. More a combo of No hitting from the #1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9th spots in the order. How friggin pathetic is that? Granderson has put up Nefi-like numbers since the break. Pudge no power, no RBIs. Maggs, .240 since the break with 2 HRs. RBIs have dried up. Thames-see Maggs. Nefi, no need to go there. Inge no pop. But will deny tiring I'm sure.
Dang we need a win today.
