Tuesday: Tigers at Mariners


What would be a good way for Aaron Harang to make a good impression in his first start as a Mariner? If he can keep up his history against Miguel Cabrera, that would be a start. If you look at the batter-pitcher numbers, this isn’t all that bad a matchup for Harang.

The one change from the regular lineup is in left field, where Don Kelly gets the start in place of Andy Dirks. No obvious matchup playing here.


  1. Austin Jackson, CF
  2. Torii Hunter, RF (2-for-8, walk, K’s vs. Harang)
  3. Miguel Cabrera, 3B (2-for-15, HR, 2 K’s vs. Harang)
  4. Prince Fielder, 1B (14-for-44, 3 HR, 2 walks, 8 K’s vs. Harang)
  5. Victor Martinez, DH (3-for-17, HR, walk, 3 K’s vs. Harang)
  6. Jhonny Peralta, SS (7-for-23, 2 HR, 3 RBIs, walk, 6 K’s vs. Harang)
  7. Alex Avila, C
  8. Omar Infante, 2B (0-for-6 vs. Harang)
  9. Don Kelly, LF (0-for-3, walk vs. Harang)

P: Doug Fister


  1. Franklin Gutierrez, CF (2 HRs in last 3 games)
  2. Kyle Seager, 3B (0-for-3, K against Fister)

  4. Michael Morse, RF (0-for-3 against Fister)

How far did they move the fences in???

Thanks, lefty.

Much better line-up for them this season. More pop at the top and from 3 thru 6. They just picked up the pitcher. No game action for him since ST. We need to get it going early. Go Tigers!!!

Crosby has two pick-offs tonight!!!! Six ground outs, too. Just in the 3rd inning.

Beck in tweeter when asked about Valverde and the splitter:
“Haven’t heard. I’m not sure how many scouts or organizational people were there. If so, not sure how much can be judged from it.”

Evan, that was a funny remark about VV dancing over the Canadian junior national team. But, Im still curious. Do you know what that kid’s tweet meant? And why would VV be throwing to a bunch of kids? No one else to throw to?
