Thursday: Tigers vs. Braves

Originally, this Tigers lineup was set up to face a left-handed starter, as Alex Wood was slated to pitch for the Braves today. The assignment went to Aaron Harang at some point, but don’t expect any changes.

The lineup is very similar to yesterday’s batting order against Philly’s Cliff Lee, which backs up the notion that Rajai Davis could get some opportunities to bat leadoff against lefties.


  1. Rajai Davis, LF
  2. Ian Kinsler, 2B
  3. Miguel Cabrera, 1B
  4. Victor Martinez, DH
  5. Torii Hunter, RF
  6. Austin Jackson, CF
  7. Nick Castellanos, 3B
  8. Bryan Holaday, C
  9. Alex Gonzalez, SS

P: Max Scherzer


  1. Jason Heyward, DH
  2. B.J. Upton, CF
  3. Freddie Freeman, 1B
  4. Chris Johnson, 3B
  5. Ryan Doumit, RF
  6. Dan Uggla, 2B
  7. Evan Gattis, C
  8. Andrelton Simmons, SS
  9. Jordan Schafer, LF

P: Aaron Harang


Heading into Lakeland now. Lets get the bats going today boys. Mad Max is going to be on his game!

wonder if Joba is going to get some work today. has looked bad this ST imo. wonder if he’s hurt?

can we sign Bobby LaFromboise? Young lefty reliever just released – lots of potential IMO.

Anybody have any idea what Doumit hits against the Tigers?

They better put the kid out there at ss.

You know, it’s the nature of life that these holes the Tigers have on their roster will come back to bite them on the bee-hind over and over and over. Again.
I left an opening for a joke in that sentence. Have fun, but keep it to yourselves.

I predict someone will, at some point in the future, write a book about this Tigers season. And will subsequently be fired.

Power is possessing the ability to extend a vacation in order to attend the St. Patrick’s Day game in Lakeland, and having that game rained out.
Power is also purchasing tickets for an exhibition game in Washington a week in advance when the forecast calls for 65 degrees and partly sunny, only to have the forecast amended to 50 degrees and rain all day.
I possess that power.

You got the power to complete all those transactions. No crying in baseball.

but who has the power against RHP?

I decided to stay in Florida on Friday instead of getting tickets at Nats Park. I usually wait until May to catch a game in DC or Baltimore due to the unpredictable weather in the Spring in our area. A rain out might be a blessing at this point.

FIster is hurt again. Lat strain. Seen this show before.

dd you sly dog!
