Friday: Tigers at Tribe

No bus ride for this reporter, but still a drive down to Toledo and left onto the Ohio Turnpike for this series. Still one of my favorite trips, in part because it’s so easy to make.

Worth noting that Will Rhymes is 3-for-3 off Jeanmar Gomez. As long as he needs a spark, it’s worth a shot. I know a lot of folks are asking about how long the Tigers will stick with Jackson and Rhymes while they’re struggling. I think they’re going to show some more patience to see if they can come out of it.
