Miner to have Tommy John surgery

Zach Miner will undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery to reconstruct the ulnar colateral ligament in his right elbow, ending speculation that he might try to rehab through it.

The Tigers announced the news Wednesday after Miner consulted with noted orthopedic surgeon Dr. Lewis Yocum, who will perform the surgery Friday in Los Angeles.

Miner was diagnosed two weeks ago with a partial ligament tear after dealing with elbow problems since the middle of Spring Training. The question he faced with a partial tear was whether to try to rehab and pitch through it by strengthening the surrounding muscles or to undergo surgery now.

A typical rehab process takes the better part of a year, usually 9-12 months, before the pitcher is throwing in games again. With that in mind, Miner had to think about next season as much as this one. In the end, he opted for the surgery, ending what has been a frustating few months for him.

Miner came into the season primed for a major role in Detroit’s bullpen after doing everything from spot starting to long relief to occasional setup duty last year. He went 7-5 with a 4.29 ERA in 2009, but had the bulk of his success as a reliever.

Miner came into camp healthy, but the 27-year-old was shut down from pitching after five outings with what was originally believed to be tendinitis in his elbow. He opened the season on the disabled list but was expected to be back in Detroit quickly.

A slow recovery process to get the pain out of his elbow soon changed those plans. Miner returned to Detroit to let doctors re-examine his elbow with another set of tests once his pain returned during an extended Spring Training appearance.

I’m not surprised everyone is super upset with Leyland today. When even Rod Allen is questioning your moves, it may be time for some soul searching, Jim. I’m also not surprised that JL made a big mistake in this game, because he does it all the time. I’ve been pointing them out for years. I think I know what he was thinking, but first let’s hear from Mr. Leyland himself:
.
“I think you can sit here and talk until you’re blue in the face, but he didn’t have a good outing,” manager Jim Leyland said. “The bullpen’s been outstanding, like I’ve said a thousand times. The bullpen didn’t do it today. That happens. They’re not going to do it every time out.

“Those hurt, because that’s a game in hand that you feel you should win, but the other team kept playing. You give them credit. They hit a home run. They got a couple big hits after that. They played nine innings hard and they beat us. I tip my hat to them. One of our better relievers didn’t have it today. It’s that simple.”
.
It’s not that simple. While you were tipping your hat, Jim, you blew the game. You had a fairly rested bullpen with a day off tomorrow but didn’t use it, preferring to heap the entire thing on Perry’s very young head. Here’s the thing: JL had his nose so buried in “the book” that he didn’t see what was happening on the field right in front of him. He was waiting for the two LEFTIES, Saunders and Ichiro, before bringing in the LEFTY Coke. He was playing matchup again. Always with the matchup. This isn’t Strat-o-Matic baseball. Perry was getting pounded. You didn’t see that, Jim? You had Zumaya up, but didn’t use him. No, Perry pitches to the RIGHTIES then Coke pitches to the LEFTIES.
.
That’s my take on it. This one will come back to haunt us, rest assured.
.
Bonderman pitched a great game. I’m really happy with him. He’s using that 2-seamer like a third pitch, keeping the ball down, and combined with changing speeds on his slider, he doesn’t seem to need that infamous third pitch.
.
We had several guys come through for us today in Cabrera’s absence and I was happy with that. That guy in the dugout, I’ll never be happy with. Will he ever retire?
.
–Rich

Leyland is too damn stubborn for his team’s good.
.
If they were to let him go I would hope they would take away his alter ego, Lamont too. Lamont sits there like a lump on a log and doesn’t implore his manager to make a move? He is not what I would consider a good 3rd base coach either. Sorry Gene and Jim. Time has pased you by.
.
It was pretty dumb managing today. No question about it.
.
Perry would have learned more from his skipper if he just had gone out and said, “You stunk today kid. I gotta try something else. Take a shower”
.
Instead he learned that he is not sure if he is a MLB pitcher..
Smooth move Leyland.

Evidently, we’ve already seen the best of Jim Leland. If this team can’t contend, they need to get rid of him.

Objectively watching the game replay now and why he left Perry in there after giving up the double to Johnson is beyond me. They were teeing off him. It’s just unconsciousunable that he left him in there when he had obviously lost confidence. This one is definitely on Leyland.

You don’t often get a situation where the Manager had so many options available and chose to do nothing.
Going along with his stubborness, JL is plain and simply a poor Manager. Good Managers immediately think how could they have handled the situation better and do a ‘mea culpa’, not pass it of or put the blame on others being the bullpen in this instance. At least it wasn’t the starting pitcher which is his big claim to fame.

I have two possible thoughts on why he would of let Perry in there
.
1. Not enough nicotine in his system from not being able to smoke in the dugout
.
2. He let him out there to get shelled in order to have excuses to bring up someone else from the minors
.
Didn’t see the post game and while yes Perry didn’t get it done – it sounds like Leyland threw him under the bus…

I too was surprised that they didn’t take out Perry sooner, relievers are asked to pitch for short times, if they get it done sometimes they stay longer, if they don’t they need to be pulled. As a reliever you have to have tough skin to realize that being pulled after a few batters is the game and you move on to the next outing but Jim seems to want to coddle Ryan a bit too much.

Can’t do anything about it now – but glad to see the offense picked up in Cabrera’s absence, because our whole offense cannot rely on one person. Heckuva play by Brennan, too bad it wasn’t at home, the fans might have tried to cushion the blow a bit.

And another nice outing by Bonderman, too bad he didn’t get a win out of that one. They about need a stat for a pitcher who has a win until the pen gives it up. Of course his ERA will drop for it.

Love, love, love seeing Magglio hitting that homerun. Too bad for Raburn, he had the stroke going yesterday, just to the wrong spots.

Geez, forgot to add the whole reason I posted – too bad for Miner, that can be a scary thing to worry about being able to recover from it. Best of luck.

I have not read the posts under the previous thread, so I hope I’m not repeating someone else’s comments.
This is the most disappointing and frustrating loss we’ve taken this season. Everyone who was even half paying attention to the game had to be screaming for the hook before Wilson’s single. Rich is very likely right: this one is going to haunt us for the rest of the season.

We saw an interesting contrast in management styles yesterday. Seattle ran out a struggling reliever in the 6th. When he lost control of the inning, Wakamatsu pulled him for a guy who was effective. Obviously, JL should have done the same.
While there are no must win games in May, this was one that we could not afford to lose the way we did. I have a bad feeling about the near future.

More from Leyland:
.
“Bonderman was tremendous,” Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. “It set up perfect, but the bullpen didn’t hold it. But I have great confidence in the bullpen and will continue to have great confidence in the bullpen.”
.
He’s defending his bullpen. Does he think we’re upset with the bullpen??? There are hundreds of posts on this and nobody has said anything bad about the bullpen, or Perry. Get a clue, Jim. Is he incapable of seeing he made a mistake? Arrogant too.
.
And I was trying to lay off him this season………….
.
–Rich

Bondo was just wonderful, dominating, and looked as good as he’s been for a long time. I saw Kevin Rand talking to him in the dugout, feeling his arm. Looked like he was trying to tell him he’d thrown enough pitches when it was obvious Bondo kept wanting to pitch. The Tigers played a terrific game.
.
You know Leland, I believe, is the only MLB manager not to have a bench coach. Supposedly, Gene LaMont is the one he confides in. It sickens me. You can only wonder what Rick Knapp was thinking and the rest of the team. They covered Perry’s back, as is expected, but inside must have been fuming. Papa Grande lost his bid for another win, too.

Leland got so overconfident in LA with his double switches and out maneuvering of Torre, he forgot what to do in this game. He gets in thinking ruts and can’t break out of them.

I think we all should’ve watched the game before doing yardwork / chores and the energy from the anger would’ve helped us get our work done faster.
.
The A’s have been terrible on the road so the upcoming series may give Detroit some hope? Well, in theory anyway. – JP

Hello all. I havent posted in awhile. As a good Canadian boy, my time has been spent mostly on the Stanley Cup playoffs. But I have been reading all the posts along the way.
.
Rich, you hit it right on the head. Sure, the bullpen blew the lead. But the bullpen has been so good this year, it was bound to happen. You cannot expect to go an entire season without some bumps in the road from your pen. The problem was that JL didnt use his options. He didnt fire all of his bullets. If he brings in Zoom or Coke sooner and Seatle still comes back, then you live with that. We all would still be disappointed but at least we would be watching a manager trying everything to preserve a win (an important win that would have made the road trip over .500) for a very deserving pitcher. Instead, he sat there like a car in traffic staring at the 30 car pileup.
.
And to comment that you still have confidence in your bullpen is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. What is he going to say? Nobody is upset with the bullpen. What we want is accountability. Just say that maybe you left Perry in too long. Just admit that maybe you made a mistake. And dont get so damn offended and defensive when somebody questions you. People are allowed to have differing opinions.
.
Just treat us like intelligent fans because that is what we are. We deserve better comments then:
a) I like him a lot
b) There is no such thing as chemistry
c) Sometimes people dont understand how important an extra run is ; and this one is my all time favourite:
d) You just have to tip you hat to him (them)
.
We deserve more.
.
That’s all I have after a month hiatus.

– Bob

Now that we’ve vented for the better part of a day, maybe it’s time to observe that today’s day off should provide a good cooling off period for us long-suffering fans.
The mark of any good sports team is how well it rebounds from a tough loss. Here’s hopong our Tigers do well this weekend.
AA Mark

I might add that when the only place to have the postgame presser is in a bathroom (LA on Sunday), complete with toilet paper rolls by JL’s head and an open-doored stall in the background, you might want to find a better spot to appear on TV. This is on you too, FSN-Detroit. How the heck does that get on the air? Talk about ludicrous. When other team’s managers appear in pressrooms with a microphone and actually answer questions, it makes our club look silly.
.
Unfortunately, the topic of this entry, Zach Miner, is getting buried in the Leyland business. As most of you know, I always thought Zach would make a fine starter for us or someone else. Now this happens. All one can say is good luck, Zach. You’re still young. Tough road ahead, though.
.
–Rich

Not sure when the next thread will be so……..Good luck to you Zach. I always thought you deserved more. This fits right into the Leyland comments because he never used Miner the way he should have. I think it was last year I would not even use the manager’s name. Got home from work, saw us take advantage of the 3rd sacker’s error. It was so nice out we went for a conv. ride only to find out this morning that we lost. It seems like Perry is inconsistent. Why didn’t Bondo start the 8th? How many pitches did he have? It looked like Mr. Snappy was working!
The Twins lose 3 and we lose 2. Like someone said, time for a winning streak! Go Tigers, 2010! –Dave

And right on cue, here comes Lynn Henning to defend Leyland. I was waiting for that.
.
Sometimes, watching the Tigers is like watching the best reality show ever. At other times, it’s like watching on old 70s sitcom where you know the lines, everything is predictable, but it’s still kinda funny.
.
–Rich

I wish you hadn’t advised about Henning Rich – it just made me mad again after reading his trash.
Henning also misses the point – it is not that JL stuffed up – it is the fact he has his head buried in the sand and refuses to acknowledge he made a bad call. So typical of young managers, not someone already over the hill when you normally are paying for wisdom and put up with slow calls. We get slow calls and no wisdom.

At least Hennings acknowledged J screwed up. Pretty slick job of manipulating the press though IMO. These guys don’t behave like Joe Falls and Jerry Green used to! It almost seems they are on the payroll.
.
I see Laird’s brother hit for the cycle yesterday. There is a chance Gerald won’t do that this year all of his games combined.
.
I would be a happy camper if we were rid of Laird, Inge and Everett. Becasue I know that we would end up with something more useful in return.
.
Ramirez cracked 3 HRs yesterday. He is also nice trade bait right NOW.

You got that right, Dan. Joe Falls………..excellent writer, even when you didn’t agree with him. I never missed his columns in the Freep. When my HS team went to the state basketball finals many years ago, Joe Falls covered the games. Joe Falls interviewing us. We got the biggest kick out of that. He was a good guy underneath the gruff exterior. Had a really soft touch after we lost in the finals.
.
It’s difficult to defend Laird without sounding like a fool, but……..I’m a fool. I can’t believe he’s a .160 hitter. .210-220, maybe. If so, he’d have to have a little hot streak to reach that level, and that would be a big help. Just maybe, and I stress the word maybe, he and Inge and Everett can pick it up a little when Guillen returns to fill out the lineup. Hope and dream.
.
–Rich

I’m surprised we haven’t heard anything about the Cabrera’s new baby. Hope everything is OK

Here it is!!!

“Miguel Cabrera?s wife gave birth to a baby girl, named Isabella, on Tuesday night in Miami. It?s the second daughter for the Tigers? first baseman.

Teammate Magglio OrdoŮez said mama and baby are fine, and Cabrera is expected to join the team Friday for the start of a series against the visiting Athletics.”
.
Congratulations to Mom and Dad!

They mentioned the birth on Wednesday afternoon’s telecast. I’d have let you know, Dan, if I’d been on here earlier.
.
So Guillen is up and Worth is down. Is it Worth it? Sorry, that’s a bad pun. Danny showed me a lot of defense during his stint and it’s nice to know we’ve got a slick fielding infielder down on the farm. Don’t know how his hitting would play out in the long run, but he did his job here. It was pretty obvious that he would be the one to go to Toledo. He’ll be back.
.
So we’re going to break out that all new murderers row lineup tonight? I’m intrigued with how it will affect the hitting of Laird, Avila, and Inge. We might receive a pleasant surprise on that front.
.
–Rich

Been a long time since we have put a bonafide top 6. Feel a lot more comfortable with Inge hitting 7th.
.
I hope the Mud Hens play Worth at SS and Sizemore at 3B now for the future.

Don’t know about anyone else but Willis sure brings out my anxiety disorder. The first is looking as ugly as it gets.

Man, he dodged a loaded gun there. Has to go down as the luckiest one run conceded in an innings this season chasing a DP ball when Willis was lucky to throw a strike.

Well Miggs hasn’t lost any sleep yet!!
.
Just an amazing hitter we are lucky to see more and more of.

Midway thru the 7th,maybe this is going to be one of those games we win when we have no right.
.
Willis in his 4 May starts has 19.1IP, 17BB and 18SO’s with a 7.07ERA which will drop down to around 6.7 after tonight. Basically a walk every innings with a run also scored is far from adequate.

I just don’t see how we can win with Dontrelle. He puts too much pressure on his D, the other starters and his bullpen.
.

Damon needs to contribute. He is not.
.
I will say the ball he hit foul last inning looked fair to me. I believe it even hit in fair territory PAST bag. I think the ump blew that one.
.
Kinda getting tired of playing sh*tty ball against sh*tty teams.

Man, these guys are going into a team-wide slump. I can feel it.
.
Inge lets us down all the time with RISP. All the time.
.
Avila mis-hits a 2-0 pitch with the #9 hitter coming up?
.
It’s not goin good.
.
Guillen has looked pretty decent out there so far.
.
He’s a better player when he is happy so that would be a bonus.
.
C’mon you guys, let’s play like a bal lteam–this is horrible.
.
We got a big break a couple of innings back when Guerin din’t sacrifice with Barton after the first 2 got on.
.
That was brain freeze by the other manager (for a change).

If Leyland’s goal is to destroy Perry- he’s right on track. WHAT ARE WE SAVING ZUMAYA FOR?????? This will be another loss on the manager.

I’m not going to get upset, I’m not going to get upset, I”M NOT GOING TO GET UPSET!

what should have been a walk-off in the 9th on Cabbie’s 3rd hr of the game is another stupid loss, courtesy of JL. If he would have just let Perry have his one out in the 8th to get his confidence back. I’m so mad after these last two games.

are you kidding me,why not pinch hit for inge?,they sent sizemore down because he wasn’t hitting,why the **** is inge still ***************** believable

Man oh man. Leyland’s idea with Ryan Perry is to leave him in till he blows up. Good strategy skip.
.
Really, in that circumstance where RP got the final out in the previous inning (on a pretty well hit fly to right)., the correct thing would be to think OK ” I showed the kid I have confidence in him”. And don’t bring him back for the next inning?!. You count your blessings and move on to your next RHP, Zumaya.
.
After the hard-luck bloop double–you take him out. For sure you take him out. I told my wife JL can’t leave him in when he has shown a tendency to get rattled with men on and fresh off a devastating performance.
.
Leyland may have his attributes but they don’t offset his wort deficiency, stubbroness.
.
Leyland has factored in to too many loses for this ball team over the last few years. He needs to go. We need some energy brought in here and a new outlook on how to handle this team..
.
Today’s game was a poor effort and a lacklustre offense again. MCab can’t be a one man team.
.
Very discouraging and tough break for Ni too, he actually did a good job on the LHB only to have a bleeder beat us.
.
Wake up call Dombrowski. There is something wrong on this team and you can go a long way to changing things around by putting the lovable old coot into retirement.
.
I’d bet dollars to donuts there would not be another MLB team that would pick up his contract.

Inge didn’t single handily lose this game, for the most part no one was hitting worth anything except for Cabby. I doubt that Sizemore would have been much help.

If Illitch really wants to win and doesn’t want to destroy the minor league system or take on a multi-year contract, then they need to dump Everett, send Avila down to AAA, trade for a catcher (how much would it really cost to get a guy like Yorvit Torrealba?) and **** (how about Christian Guzman? Or does anyone know if Danny Worth has played any SS?) stop batting Laird anywhere but 9th, and tell Leyland that he needs to get his act together. It is clear at this point that Jim is done as a manager. You could tell from Perry’s body language that he had no confidence, so he should have been yanked after the out he got. Actually, he never should have been in there to begin with. Then to have a guy who you are trying to build confidence with who is inconsistent intentionally walk a batter? I swear I was thinking the walk would make him lose his control…and voila.
.
Sickening. Cabrera hits 3HR, drives in 4 and the rest of the team can’t hit its way out of a paper bag. You get lucky with Willis giving up 3 runs and give it away. You are facing 2 of the lesser teams in the league over the past 3 games and you are 0-3. So many things that indicate poor managing/coaching. Ugh.

Leland “you gotta give ‘em credit”

Crappy way to lose a ballgame. A bloop double, a hit batsman and an infield mistake. I don’t think Ordonez had any chance to catch that bloop since they were in a “no doubles” defense, although it didn’t seem that any of the Oakland hitters were capable of hitting the wall in right. If Ni hadn’t gotten in the way, Cabrera would have picked up that infield roller and thrown to home for the force play. Our pitchers still can’t field their positions here, four years later, and tonight it cost us the game. Then the sac fly. Throw in the homer to #9 hitter Landon Powell (yes, THE Landon Powell) and the game’s gone.
.
We have five guys in our lineup hitting over .300 but we don’t seem to be able to score runs lately. And we’ve lost 5 out of our last 6. This isn’t good.
.
Again, Perry wasn’t coming out of the game until the lefties came up, and that’s when Ni came in. Matchups. After the 7th, however, it might have been a good time to bring in Zumaya and let him get some innings when we’re not trailing. Shaky managing. Not atrocious like Wednesday, but a little shaky. We’ve reached the point where Valverde will need some work whether it’s a save situation or not.
.
Galarraga was used tonight but he’s still starting on Sunday. Leyland said we were short. I’m not sure what that means. Is one of the relievers injured or something?
.
Willis is like an airplane with one engine out. You figure the thing can probably still fly, but it’s not a comfortable feeling.
.
–Rich

For what seems like the fortieth time this year, Willis ends up being the worst of the two pitchers who start the game. Sheets still has a great curve, so you knew Willis had to be on top of things. Was he? What a joke!
Once again, the team deserves better than being behind ever time D-Train is on the mound. Both of the early walks scored. Sheets hardly walks anybody, and thus the Cabrera HR”s become essentially one run in. I think the world of Willis, but his time has come and gone. We cannot survive with him every fifth day. i never thought I would say it, but Bonine would be a better option. If you could eat 14 M of Sheffield’s contract, I would gladly eat Dontrelle’s for the good of everyone. As far as 7-8-9, I won’t even go there. I’m not even going to offer my usual Inge defense. Finally, I do love Jackson, but I’m not sure about him at the top. I don’t see .330 continuing, and he just doesn’t work the count. Put Damon at the top, Guillen at 2, and drop Jackson to either 6 or 7. Nine would be better, but there’s not another good option at this time.
We need solid pitching from Ricky P and Justin V the next two games. Go Tigers.!

At this point, I wish you were the Manager, Rich!

There are times when I wish Elmer Fudd was the manager, Pup. It is funny, however, that you can look at some Twins forums and they’re all over Gardenhire too. Baseball is a funny game. Where have I heard that before?
.
I said before the game that Ben Sheets would shut us down. We have a way of getting shut down by name pitchers, no matter if they’ve been pitching well or not. Jake Peavey comes to mind. The thing is, more often than not, we get shut down by these guys because they pitch very well against us. Sheets was dealing tonight.
.
Now that I think about it, Verlander is still available to start Sunday on regular rest, but JL did say Galarraga in his postgamer. I wonder if that will change?
.
Interesting point about the lineup, Greg. Since Jackson isn’t going to be used to steal bases, I sometimes wonder why he needs to be the leadoff hitter. Of the two, Damon is better at it and he usually hits for a higher average in the 1-hole. One could make a point for hitting Jackson lower then using Laird, Everett and Santiago to play a little small ball before turning the lineup over.
.
We need to find a way to win games rather than finding ways to lose them. A simple statement, but that’s what it comes down to. The Twins won and are now back to 2.5 ahead of us. We need a win streak and we need a certain somebody to push some of the right buttons for a change.
.
–Rich

I think Johnny Damon needs to play LF.

Elmer Fudd’s Detwoit Tigers starting lineup
.
Wyan Waburn – centerfield
Wamon Santiago – secondbase
Maggwio Ordonez – wightfield
Miguel Cabwewa – firstbase
Bwennan Boesch – leftfield
Bwandon Inge – thirdbase
Gewald Waird – catcher
Adam Evewett – shortstop
Awex Aviwa – DH
Dontwelle Wiwwis – pitcher
Wyan Pewwy – wewief pitcher

Comewica Park squiwwel – wascawwy wabbit

I hope we start getting some serious high level criticism of our manager. This would be a better club with someon new at the helm. The team is stagnating and new vision and new players are necesary.
.
This is not because of the last few games, it is because of the last few years.
.
Good points on Avila and Jackson. You bat Jackson lower (even if you were to simply switch Damon and AJ) and you change his game. The dynamics of the team change. Perhaps damon will start to hit properly.
I don’t like Guillen batting 2nd but Santiago could.
.
Avila needs to get some fresh air. He will not magically snap out of it with the situation the way it is. He needs some new perspective. He has a great deal of potential and it is a crime to destroy it.
.
There would be teams that would like Everett and Laird. If someone shows interest –let them go. Heck we would be better off with a .205 Brandon Inge behind the plate over what we have now! (Facetious)
.
Back to AJ, he’ll be OK. He hits the ball hard but he needs to spread his hits out a little more. that and bunt, and steal. It is a no brainer that he is being wasted as a leadoff man. The pity is he would probaly steal 80% of his attempts if told to giddyup.
.
Life has been unkind to Dontrelle lately. Well, at least in a pitching sense. The front office has stuck with him (as much as CYA mentality as they were in giving him multiple chances). It is obvious that he will always have serious bouts of comman and control issues. Enough that he will not win games at a MLB level. It is time to cut your losses and end the “experiment”.
.
I am not a huge Bondo fan but he has really impressed me with the way he has gutted out his shoulder problems. He is far more likely to contribute than Willis. Scherzer should be called back if he throws a nother good one for Toledo.
.
If we don’t dumnp Leyland we will be subjected to more of the same next year.

Great comments everyone. GK, were you at the game? A few people from my work were. Didn’t watch the game, just checked on it from time to time. Yardwork. I watched the 9th inning. We were lucky to be tied at 3-3. If I am the manager, I bring in Valverde and tell my team we are going to win it in the ninth. Where is the emotion from the manager? It is past time for a change. Come on Mr. I and DD. We have a good team. Now let’s start that win streak! Go Tigers! –Dave

The epitome of desparation or the height of idiocy?
.
Gerald Laird has changed his uni # in an attempt to get his bat going. What’s that they say about a leopard and its spots?
.
His old #8 was way to close to #6

At least I won’t confuse Laird with Yogi Berra anymore. Maybe the new number will cause him to keep his hands back on his swing. The reason you rest your bat on your shoulder, Gerald.
.
Dave, a lot of managers do bring in their closer in a tie game in the 9th at home. JL usually does it in the 10th. I guess one could make a case for either method, but if Valverde shuts them down in the top of the 9th, we don’t see their closer in the bottom half. That was a lost opportunity to take control of the game. It looks like JL is now fixated on fixing Perry. It would have saved a lot of trouble if he’d just pulled him earlier on Wednesday. Now we have an 8th inning guy that can’t be trusted. Just what we need.
.
Willis is going to have to pitch stronger games. Sure, he’s not the nightmare he was the past two years, but he’s not exactly pitching well either. Like last night, there’s always a feeling of us back on our heels and trying to avoid disaster rather than taking it to the opposition.
