Wednesday’s lineups (which were actually Tuesday’s lineups too): Tigers at White Sox

These were the lineups that were out for Tuesday’s game before it was postponed. With both starters simply pushed back a day, no reason for major changes.

What’s up with RHBs hitting .317 against Verlander this year?? He still dominates LHBs who this year are .236 against him.

Man oh man, those Cuban players sure do turn some heads. I don’t know if I’d pitch to Jose Abreau. He’s a beast with the bat.

“One pitch pop up Kinsler”.

I know. It was in his happy zone, though, and he missed it.

Chicago’s Cuban connection, say Rod and Mario. 4 players from Cuba. Wait til Avi comes back next year. They will have a lineup to be reckoned with. Of course, every team’s lineup seems to be a force to be reckoned with for Tiger pitchers. Sigh…..

JV is not the Ace of the Detroit staff and has not been for 1.5 years. He cannot avoid the Big inning, he only pitches 6 innings, he refuses to change from power to finesse pitcher and he’s very expensive over a long term.
Time to rethink the Starting pitching staff?

They did not take the disaster in Cleveland serious . It all went downhill from there . I really agree that JV is not the ace . However some of the media feel he walks on water . They will be very luck to pull out 1 win in Chicago . DD has gotta wonder what has gone so wrong so quick. Lets hope they can fix it .
