P: Zach McAllister


Dirks is fourth in DRS and third in UZR/150. He has been a top defender this year, still he is relegated again based on the “good numbers ” of Kelly in 5 AB (that is a little sample by definition)
Dirks after the ASG:.270 .356 .393 .750. 258 in his last 10
Kelly:.219.316 .297 .613. Kelly last 10: 200

Tigers 29-13 in games started by Ramon Santiago.

Yikes Miguel out.

“abdominal irritation” “day to day”

Time to sit him or DH him and play Victor at first.

Victor : 299!

Second for the team with 30 2B

Has more RBI than Fielder after the ASG

I tell ya I’m at the game I lost the ball in the light

Rod Allen said the same thing I thought—where was Prince on the ball Bourne lost?
You don’t bluff a fly ball, as an outfielder very often, certainly not with the bases full.

Castellanos should be playing 3rd for Toledo. They are making a mistake there. Danny Worth is not a worthy replacement for Miggy.

Sure is disappointing going through the order and not having the anticipation of watching Miggy in the 3 spot.

Where is everyone tonight?
