Monday’s lineups: Tigers vs. Athletics

Jose Iglesias is back for the Tigers at shortstop after missing the last couple days. On the A’s side, you had to figure they’d find room for Seth Smith in the lineup given his numbers off Sanchez. With Josh Reddick out placed on the disabled list, Daric Barton returns to the A’s and starts at first base.

No Reddick? So now Alburquerque is free to……..never mind.
One could say that tonight the A’s get our best pitcher.

Sanchez has been on lately, very fun to watch. Good to see Iglesias back, plays the game so smooth Let’s get a W tonight

They just put Reddick on the DL, so we won’t see him.

Reddick or Rasmus? Seems like they are about the same player.

Hopefully Anibal faces Smith with no one on.

Going to game tonight and tomorrow…..go Tigers!

I’m not used to seeing a hittable Anibal.

Nope he’s not looking to good

He made a good catch right there, though. He’s got a Kenny Rogers golden glove in his future.

Here we go with umpires again.

Omar, just what the doctor ordered.

He’s fooling nobody

Thought the A’s were having trouble scoring runs?

Raining here at the ball park

Anibal looks like crap tonight and this is a team that was having a very hard time scoring runs. They’ll probably slaughter JV tomorrow

Let’s just hope it is a off night and he’s not hurt.

The reactions of pitchers and batters alike on both sides nobody looks too pleased.

Over 100 pitches and there aren’t 2 outs in the 5th


Cabby strikes again

Get em back and cough it right back up. Awesome

Was he out at first?

Alvarez is throwing BP.

Pitching suspect tonight. Just hope Sanchez is ok. .

Just a poorly played game.

Light a candle.

Prince doesn’t come through again. Shocker. Seriously thought he was coming out of his funk a week ago. Not so much last 3 or so games back to not producing.

Cespedes vs Bondo?
Good luck JB.

Leaving. .try again tomorrow. Not that it is impossible for them to come back but I just won’t stick around

Thought for sure Torii would get a hit there. Not tonight, I guess.

Not in the cards or the pitching or hitting. The walks tonight have been a killer

Glad I left. …bases loaded last 2 innings and nothing. Who cares if Miggy comes up down by 3….he can’t be the hero if nobodys on ahead of him.

Well yuk………..I mean would it have been nice if we scored a few more since we definitely had the opportunity to tie this puppy up a few times but its hard to exactly kill the hitters ya know. But not exactly pleased with Prince and Torii in the 7th and 8th. But tonight.
It was the freaking pitching…to many walks, too many pitches. Heck JV had better be on his game tomorrow because the pen was shot today. Both your long guys are gone. I guess I just wonder how a team that literally hasn’t been able to score runs does that? Oh well. Just hope it’s better tomorrow.

This one’s on the bullpen. Not gonna win many when the bullpen gives up 4 runs.

No they weren’t good for sure and they didn’t hold it down but Anibal had a pretty poor game too. But I’m not going to kill him because he’s been so good. It was just ugly all around wasn’t it?

Which JV tomorrow? Egomaniac or the pitcher that wants to pick up the team?

They scored on our bullpen and we didn’t.
Fielder can’t come up with the big hit.
DD didn’t get a lefty for the pen before the deadline.
Our starters have lost track of the strike zone.
Torii’s defense isn’t what it used to be.
All this factors:
Sometimes you will win sometimes you will lose.
This is not a perfect team.
