Pudge set to tie Carter

He’s in the lineup tonight for what would be his 2,055th game caught, tying him with Gary Carter for third on the all-time list. The next two guys on the list are a ways away — Bob Boone is second at 2,225, and Carlton Fisk is the all-time leader at 2,226.

In other news, look for either Yorman Bazardo or Jeremy Bonderman on the mound next Tuesday against Minnesota, which is currently listed as TBA.  Bonderman will throw off a mound in the next day or two, but even if he feels fine, that’s no guarantee he’ll start. The Tigers still have to decide whether it’s worth it to have him go out on a high note.
