Tuesday: Tigers vs. Mariners

If you have to find a way to score runs against Felix Hernandez, it can’t hurt to have a couple of speed guys at the top of the order. It’ll be interesting to see if the Tigers try putting Austin Jackson and Will Rhymes in motion if they’re on base. The two guys in the lineup who have hit King Felix in the past are Miguel Cabrera (7-for-14) and Jhonny Peralta (6-for-20). After that, the numbers are about as ugly as you would expect.

On the other side, the M’s have .164-hitting Miguel Olivo batting cleanup.


  1. Austin Jackson, CF
  2. Will Rhymes, 2B
  3. Magglio Ordonez, DH
  4. Miguel Cabrera, 1B
  5. Brennan Boesch, RF
  6. Ryan Raburn, LF
  7. Jhonny Peralta, SS
  8. Alex Avila, C
  9. Brandon Inge, 3B
P: Phil Coke
  1. Ichiro Suzuki, RF
  2. Chone Figgins, 3B
  3. Milton Bradley, LF
  4. Miguel Olivo, C
  5. Justin Smoak, 1B
  6. Jack Cust, DH
  7. Brendan Ryan, SS
  8. Michael Saunders, CF
  9. Jack Wilson, 2B
P: Felix Hernandez


If Dominique Wilkins was the human highlight reel, maybe Raburn should be the human blooper reel. He’s got the assisted HR tonight and Peralta’s inside the park HR from crashing through the bullpen gate last year, plus numerous other gaffs.

Extenely bad running by Jackson in the first.
Bad running by Rhymes
Designate Raburn, a 228 batter witha brick for glove.
It was Cooke who deserved to lost a turn instead of Porcello
