Tuesday’s lineups: Tigers vs. White Sox

Rajai Davis hasn’t been getting many starts lately, but when he’s starting, he’s getting some better spots in the lineup. He’s batting second tonight against White Sox lefty Jose Quintana, with everyone else pushed down. That means Miguel Cabrera will bat cleanup for the second time in a week.

“That’s due more to how Raj has done against Quintana,” Brad Ausmus said. “More of a matchup issue.”

Nick Castellanos was originally in the starting lineup at third base, but was scratched about an hour before game time with what the Tigers called a right index finger contusion, suffering when he was hit by a ground ball in batting practice. Cabrera moved from first base to third, Victor Martinez from DH to first base, Torii Hunter to DH and J.D. Martinez into the lineup in right field.

  1. Austin Jackson, CF (4-for-19, triple, walk, 4 K’s)

On the way to the game. ..gonna be late traffic is horrible. Usually takes 15 minutes we are working on 40 minutes.

Rajai is officially a Detroit Tiger.
Doesn’t even look at allinterested in utilizing his gift of speed.
Doesn’t steal and doesn’t
Go from 1st to 3 rd on a hi to right

Doc catching and makes contact and drives in a run . Tigers 2 Sox 0 ……

They are stuck on those 2 runs again. That’s been the story for several games now.

They are awful right now–bloody awful. Doesn’t matter where they hit in the order they don’t get things going at all.

Hey there, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, superb blog!

It’s an awesome article for all the internet viewers; they will take
benefit from it I am sure.

They are gonna lose this game–at least they are playing like they expect to.

There it goes. What is that? 4 errors in this game?They have to get their butts off those 2 runs.

Can’t hit, don’t run, can’t pick up the ball. Not much chance of playing winning baseball like that. Brutal. When will it stopthis time? When will these awful stretches of shoddy baseball start again? Can’t even handle the cut-offs properly

Can’t pitch, either.

Oh yeah=apparently can’ pitch either. Wow Soria has been a major worry thus far.
Doesn’t matter who we put in this pen there must be asbestos or formaldehyde or ebola or something that makes them all inferior

Soria sure is a terrific pitcher. Game over . Good night.

I’m curious to find out what blog platform you happen to be using?
I’m having some minor security problems with my latest website and I’d like to find something more safeguarded.
Do you have any solutions?

I guess he is not happy being used in the 7th

Bums. ….we left. Unbelievable. ..ya Soria is awesome. Screw em

The umpire could not see that Austin’s hand got hit with the ball? Are you kidding me.

Makes me wonder if he was hurt when he was traded to us. TExas was pissed about Fielder getting back at us?

He had a physical.

I have read so many content regarding the blogger lovers but this post is actually a good post, keep it up.

I thought maybe the team would be revived by the cool weather coming home after the heat out west. They just look listless and 40,000 came out to see them. The best fans in baseball don’t deserve this crap.

Not including the tickets tonight cost me about $50 between parking and crappy concession food.

He is a closer with closer mentality and suddenly is pitching the 7th. Just like Valverde in not closing situation. He said the right things, that does not mean he was telling the true. He is as good as advertised. Just another Baker. Huff, Betemit , they trade for a guy and keep using the player supposed to be replaced

He didn’t close last year he was a set up guy. Just a bunch of excuses.

The first step to solve a problem is to find the cause. Two bad games, three in fact,he blew the save just before coming to The Tigers, so maybe a little regression .I dont think he is injured , iglesias passed the physical but .,,

His legs weren’t broken then.

Did he actually have a physical or did they exchange medical records?

It does not matter now ,but why Romine or Kelly did not start at 3B today? No second guessing just curiosity

I was surprised by that, too. But, since Miguel does not do the DH too well, that might be the reason.

Miguel could have remained at 1B. Romine /Kelly 3B until Suarez injury. Unless Ausmus wanted his 4 OF batting today to ignite the offense

Bums…..top to bottom.

These guys are playing some of the Worst baseball we have seen in a LONG time!
Mr I can’t keep throwing Millions at this team and think/hope its going to win a WS.
Something is missing to play this kind of BS for stretches at a time. I’m glad i cannot attend a game this year.

The hilarious thing today if there can be one is the Tigers sent me an email because as a valued season ticket holder I can give them a couple thoudpsand dollars and buy my post season tickets? What a sense of humor they have. Not another dime.

They need several roster upgrades to go any deeper in the post season . I really do not see that happening . What you see is what you get.

Terribly disappointing. So sloppy

What’s up, yup this post is in fact good and I have learned lot
of things from it about blogging. thanks.

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot
of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a
lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help
stop content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate
it.

Everything is very open with a precise clarification of the issues.

It was definitely informative. Your site is very helpful.
Many thanks for sharing!

Kathy,you’re a much better Tiger Fan than I’ll ever be..I don’t think this team is worth
the aggravation…they are not Championship caliber, at least that appears to be the case…I’ve been a fan for over 50 years…where do they get these relievers, absolutely terrible? Cabrera plays for himself it appears….he is not doing the job,
he’s being paid for, in fact the whole team is flat, with the exception of VMartinez,
who always gives you 100%
It’s amazing they’re still in 1st place… give them time they’ll blow it…good thing they
clinched early last year…wound up winning the west by 1(one) game.
Good Luck!..

I’m a 50 year fan, John. I wasn’t too concerned w.ith Miggy’s lack of HR hitting, because the team was winning Now, no one is hitting when they need to. We look weak. I’m jealous of Jose Abreau.

Spot on with this write-up, I actually believe that this website needs far more attention. I’ll probably be returning to read through more, thanks for the advice!

I always spent my half an hour to read this website’s content
daily along with a cup of coffee.

DD, can you package Soria and Krol and trade them by Thursday for a couple of dependable LHP & RHP relievers?

Just want to say your article is as amazing. The clarity in your post is simply cool and
i can assume you are an expert on this subject. Fine with your permission allow
me to grab your RSS feed to keep up to date with forthcoming post.
Thanks a million and please continue the rewarding work.

“They stinketh.”……………William Shakespeare.

Hey people, whassup? I go to do a concert, we have a 2-0 lead, and by the time the show is over, it’s 9-2? Can’t leave you guys alone for a minute. 🙂
Sounds like Soria is rusty. Detroit bullpens go long stretches without getting the back end much work, for some reason.
If they got 12 hits, I’d think there would have been some opportunites to push the envelope a little, unlike the LAA series. No aggressive baserunning tonight?

Romine subbing for Suarez was picked off. of course. 3 times in a week the SS picked off

They are not the reason we lost or the reason we are losing but Coke & Krola have to go.

My contributions are becoming more irrelevant with each passing game. good night.

Rich, First it was the inability to put the game away early with no add on runs. I thought there were several give away AB’s. Sloppy errors, (actually they were well executed errors), BP led by Soria, throwing batting practice. It all came together like a perfectly choreographed greased pig contest.

One thing to like, Holaday had a good game
