Saturday’s lineups: Tigers vs. Indians

As expected, Miguel Cabrera is out of the starting lineup. Dave Dombrowski suggested he could play if needed, but after the last two games they’re taking some caution with him.

“I can’t say for sure, but [we] probably could play him today, per se,” he said. “But it’s just one of those things where you say it’s better to give him a break and go from there.”

P: Scott Kazmir


1-0 because of an umps inability to what is and is not a strike.

According to gameday, Santana was K before the single. Twice the same pitch was called ball and then strike for the next hitter


19th GIDP tied with VMart and four more for second in the AL

Lined into DP. Not GIDP.

He is now on the 300 horse

It’s just amazing what VMart has done…comeback player of the year!


Again , the same pitch called ball.

Chalk another run up to the ump……the ever changing strike zone…must be driving all the players CRAZY! Argh.

Another 2 out hit. Must be frustrated with that ump.

Tigers better hold onto this win.

Cripes, another 2 out hit for them. Get him out, Anibal.

The strike zone is still a jumping. Any blind idiot must be able to become an umpire. In fact a prerequisite must be 20/50 vision

I know I’m in the minority but I hope we hold on to Omar, I like him. Going to the game tomorrow, go JV.

For the record I posted before the 2nd HR…..go Omar!

Our offense has stalled…lets get it going fellas.

Holy crap.

Omar again

Thanks Brantly! Nice guy that Brantly very helpful..

How did Rondon earn a save didn’t we win that game by 5? What am I missing?

The ball is flying tonight

Scored two runs after he pitched.

Smyly? Or Coke?

Nevin fired

and won’t accompany the team for it’s final 2 games.

Not sure the point in firing a manager with 2 games left? He wasn’t given much of a team the last few years either.

Sometimes not even a full roster according to Wagner.

Oh, no.

Uh oh………here we go.

What happened?

Veras is making me very nervous.

I read Jackson suffered an injury

Catching the ball he went awkardly into the wall.

Inside the park HR. Jackson couldn’t get it and then fell on the ground.

Thanks. Im following by gameday and twitter

Glad he appears to be okay but we gotta tight one now.

He can’t throw a strike.

Veras has been a little disappointing for sure

Light a candle.

Just read on twitter Casteelanos being called up tomorrow.

I can’t get excited until we win this game.

Veras is killing me.

Dan will be happy:
3 more @MudHens called up by #Tigers … RHP Evan Reed, IF Danny Worth and … wait for it … OF Nick Castellanos called up.


He’s probably celebrating as we speak.

Jose Valveras ends the inning

You got that right!

Nevin was not fired, his contract wont be renewed. Wagner too

That’s how you get fired nowadays

the polite way.

I sure wish we could get a run or two this inning.

I got my wish!


Thank Austin appears to be ok with that triple. And a squeeze. Nice job getting that down. That wasn’t an easy pitch

Thank you, Tigers, for a thrilling game!

Good day. The team answered the bell again with their star out.
Iglesias is starting to feel at home. Anibal looked very good.
Omar the Magnificent. A squeeze play. Steady job by ramon
Good stuff. Veras has been very iffy since we got him. Not striking many out and he did prior to coming here.
And, oh yeah, they called up Castellanos.
