Wednesday’s lineups: Tigers vs. Yankees

Victor Martinez is in the lineup once again. It’ll be interesting to see if he gets a day off against Tanaka for the day game after the night game.

The forecast for tonight calls for temperatures around 43 degrees at game time with a chance of rain, dropping into the 30s by 10pm.

Happy to hear David already knows about the snow. Didn’t want to be the bearer of that news.

lovely weather for a ball game. We are going to Mud Hens tomorrow for a night game – luckily have suite tickets so most likely won’t see much of the game in the elements

I just cancelled my teams practice, this evening. They are, however, 7 y.o. girls.

I coached a 9-12 YO girl’s team once. About 15 years from now, Evan, these hot chicks in their 20’s that you don’t recognize will be coming up to you and you’ll be going “Who… you?” My clue was when they called me Mister.

I think they should put Victor on the DL to give him some rest. They will need him at the END. It just seems like they don’t need him now. It’s JD who has to get going. But I think last nights game started him going.

Mike is dead on

Price can’t throw strikes tonight. I’m guessing cold. Again a cruddy start.

Guess we’ll be seeing our infamously crappy pen early tonight.

What an awful start.

They better go get him. He’s thrown almost 50 pitches in a row and it’s still the 1st inning.

Look at the pen they all threw a ton of pitches last night.

Unfortunately, you are right. Price is fatigued and he’s now all over the place. If Gose comes up with the play early on. either with the catch or the FC on Ellsbury, this inning never happens.

51 pitches, 29 strikes.

Dave better get on the phone and get somebody in the BP.

Terrible TERRIBLE start. 6 runs,51 pitches. He’ll be lucky to pitch 5 innings and then those .158 and .190 Yankee hitters can look at the Tiger BP. Meanwhile, Tiger hitters have only produced 4 runs in the first 2 games. Can they find at least 7 in this game?

April in the D abberation: 75 degrees a week ago , 38 degrees and snow a week later.

Yoenis made a perfect throw, too, but Alex dropped it like a “hot potato.”

He usually does.

At least the Yankees got up off there B’s and went out to the pitcher’s mound. Tigers just left David out there.

it’s the cold!! and yanks are having the same pitching problem!
jeff jones should have brought david a coat when he came out!! he needs an extra layer.

it’s still too early in the season for night games.
and i really really hope that no one gets injured. ellsbury looked like he was in so much pain when he got hit.

They shouldn’t be playing this game

It’s been cold and snowing on and off all day here…….

Giving it right back.

Intentionally walking a guy batting .158. Are you serious?

I think rod and Mario are right. I think Price must be tipping pitches. You just don’t hit a pitcher like Price that well without something going on.

I wonder what Kinsler said to him before David left the field?

Tiger’s going quickly and quietly the last few innings………

One flub after another.

Oh Iggy.

Dan & Jim think it’s the weather, but what if this was the WS? I guess it’s too cold to play.

Problem is price pitched just as bad to the Yankees last time he faced them and it wasn’t the weather.

Their not interested either am I. Better uses of my time.

Pitching and defense. We sure don’t have it tonight.

Prices last 2 outings against Yankees. ..4 1/3 innings, 22 hits 16 earned runs, 4 walks 5 strike outs, 156 pitches and a 33.23 era

I don’t think they will be one of the teams in the bidding for him.

not unless they see something the Tigers don’t.
Devon Travis is on fire for the BJ’s.

Too early to reach conclusions,Fister,Hamell,Baugarner,Porcello,Sanchez CC with bad outings

Pitch selection,Nesbitt followed the same pattern with batters.So much for the great game caller

In the end,K pitchres have the advantage over contact pitchers

Devon Travis being interviewed on MLB Network right now. We lost a good one.

There are still quite a few fans there.

these boys haven’t tried since the 3rd. Is it possible that our October problems and early season problems are related?

The Yankees had to be just as cold, but they persevered. The weather in NY is certainly not any better than Detroit, but our boys look cold. Bats are cold, too.

I’m suggesting that our boys are from warmer climates than some other teams…and this can be problematic at 2 times of the year.

Never was for Magglio.

Most of these guys are either from warm climates or live in them now.

Nesbitt did better than Price and the temperature in his native Maracay was around 86 degrees last night.
Gregorio Petit did not have problem with the cold weather either

Miracles happen. Not looking for one tonight. Past time to conserve resources for tomorrow. Got Tanaka. It’ll now be tough to even this series. It’s a long season. Just a really ugly day and an uglier game.

Where is the offense? Where is the starting pitching? Where is the defense?
Well, it’s surely not at Comerica over the past three nights. Another embarrassing performance by our offense tonight. A timely hit in the first, and we very well could have tied the score. Don’t think it would have made much difference. DP either tips pitches to the Yanks, or it’s a cursed matchup. Again, Miggy was a no show. VMart has no power on one knee, and Kinsler left the building along with Elvis. Avila had the best swings of the night, for what it’s worth. Thanks to the Twinks for keeping us in first, though tied with KC. Will be tough sledding to gain a split, unless the Bat Fairy knocks them all on the head tomorrow. Three things to like:
1. Brad gave Krol, Al, and Tom the chance to right their own ships; Al sank again.
2. The 4 spot in the 1st put them right back in the game; didn’t last long.
3. Cespides beats the shift for a solid hit.
Sorry, that’s about it. As it stands right now, we begin afresh tomorrow, with the chance of gaining the split. That’s about all we can ask for after the last two games.


David Price’s pitching was not impressive today but this sure was:
“You throw the ball as bad as I did and you give up more runs than you get outs, you don’t deserve to come up here,” he said. “That’s why I stayed out there.”
(After he chose to stay in the dugout rather than the comfort (physical and mental) of the Tiger clubhouse.)

As opposed to J. Nathan’s attitude in the past…..blaming others ….minimizing performance woos….saying he doesn’t care what others think…..

That shows impressive character. More than I can say for the rest of the quitters last night. Although I will say I wouldn’t have been that excited to being out there. I don’t get paid millions and it didn’t seem to affect the Yankees ability to hit or pitch.

horrible game, horrible weather Cold again today but daytime game with the sun hopefully will help. Sanchez needs to bounce back today big time

A Venezuelan reporter asked Magglio how he was able to overcome the cold weather during the 2006 WS, and he said:” It is all mental”

FWIW: had Gose llved to his fabled ability the last two games and they could be going for the swept.

In all fairness, Gose started on fire. But then, Brad started playing Rajai more especially against LH. He’s had to sit quite a few days.
The majority of players are from warm weather climates. Most of the American players are from the west coast or down south. Very few from this area and most of them, not all, live in warm climates during the off-season. Ausmus lives in San Diego. As for Travis, I guess that is why Lynn Henning kept writing columns about the Tigers possibly trading Kinsler even before he got to Detroit. No coplaints from me about Kinsler. He’s great.
I hope they win today. Weather to warm in a few days but then they’ll be gone. Go Tigers!!!!

Tanaka is nursing his arm. He is afraid of an injury so they can still split this series

Tigers:Gose 8, Kinsler 4, Cabrera 3, V. Martinez DH, J. Martinez 9, Cespedes 7, Avila 2, Castellanos 5, Perez 6. Sanchez

Travis? he was blocked for years to come by Kinsler

bounce back today and all is well! another cold, cold day. My son’s baseball prac is already cancelled for tonight here in Frankenmuth. Wishing boys can bounce back today especially Sanchez, then the Yanks can get the hell out of town!

Schmeil: Nathan has ACL tear. Done for season.
