Thursday’s lineups: Tigers vs. Athletics

It appears Daniel Fields’ first Major League stint will not include a start. Tigers stick with their lineup except at catcher, where Bryan Holaday gets the day game after a night game.

So if lefties are so much better than righties against Cy Hahn why not put more lefties in? Example Fields for JD or Yoenis? He’ll he can’t do any worse.

Romine for Castellanos

Nope we’ll just hope and pray these righties can hit him

Why not Romine for Kinsler?
Unbelievable yet totally expected. Greene is proving to be very green indeed.
This team is cursed.
Go hide yourself in your hoody Shane.

Sure but put in all the lefties you can like their manager did. Oh wait that would require even some common sense.

We need Verlander back!!!!!!
Come on Tigers, you can win this.

GK…I have taken umbrage before about your comments concerning Kluber in 2014 (who turned into a real Cy Young) as well as in 2015 regarding Shoemaker (last year’s ROY runnerup to Abreu) and Cole (who is now 8-2 with a 1.90 ERA). BUT, I am now getting ready to join you in stopping support for some of the Tigers’ pitchers and hitters. As referred to by Rich, I have definitely joined in on lifeboat drills.

Frankly it doesn’t matter who they face anymore….I think they’d struggle against me.
I don’t think I said anything bad about Kluber though last night I said KC was facing a great pitcher and they managed to push across 4. Meaning they didn’t cower like this troop of bumbling idiots we have.
But Shoemaker hasn’t been good he was a rookie with 1 good season and hasn’t been good this year. Except of course agaibst the us. Seems to be a common thread not good except a career night against the tigers.

Greene won’t make it though 5

Shane or Blaine?

I’m crying uncle.

Something wrong with Cespy?
Geez, Gose is not squaring up on the ball much lately.

They said the flu

The only thing that is saving what little mental health I have left is the old baseball adage about not being as good as the best performance (an 11-2 start) or as bad as the worst performance (the upside down record of the last several weeks).

Maybe they play better on the south side . Lets hope so ….

Egads, Daniel seems to fit right in with this team.
Greene needs to go to Toledo. There is no way he is going to right the ship up here.

It’s gotta be incredibly tough on the players but I will say that it is pretty tough on those fans (like us) that look forward to game-time every day. I wonder if this is what it is like to feel like a Cubs fan. Next thing is black humour and club-house fights.

There are no pitchers the Tigers have that are feared…period! Nobody!
Price is the only one and was taken out…in a game they could have one if he had a manager who shouldn’t be…Gose, Inglesis are terrible lead off 1-2
hitters….wake up !
I should be worried about more important things in my life….Good bye!

Wow, how great is this to see? Way to go Collins.
