Lineup shakeup lineups: Tigers vs. Blue Jays

So yeah, this is a little bit different.

“I’ve bounced different ideas around in my head and off our coaches,” Brad Ausmus said Friday afternoon. “I wouldn’t say it’s been weeks or anything. It’s been a few days. Ideally you want people on base in front of your run producers.

“When you set your lineup in Spring Training, you want people on base when your run producers come up. For whatever reason — even though when you look at it historically, the guys that we have there should have worked, but it’s not. So I’m not going to bury my head in the sand and wait. At some point, you have to do something to change the way the offense has been clicking. If you look at each guy’s numbers individually, they’re not bad. But for whatever reason they’re not translating. Is this is the answer? I don’t know. But to me, it’s worth a try to see if it’s the answer.”

The main idea, Ausmus said, was to get his five historically best hitters at the top. That led Ian Kinsler up to the leadoff spot for the second time this season (he also hit there April 27 at Minnesota against lefty Tommy Milone, a game Anthony Gose started in center over Rajai Davis).

It also led to Yoenis Cespedes moving up to the second spot.

“One upside to Cespy is he can really well,” Ausmus said. “Generally you want guys who can score from first on a double when you have Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez coming up. Cespy is a rare power hitter who can really run, not as rare now as it was 20 years ago.”

It also puts Cespedes in a position where he should see more strikes in front of Cabrera, though he wasn’t really hurting for strikes in front of J.D. Martinez either. J.D. Martinez, meanwhile, returns to the fifth spot.

The Blue Jays, meanwhile, put former Tiger Ezequiel Carrera and ex-Tigers prospect Devon Travis in the lineup at the bottom.

He’ll have to stick with this kind of lineup for awhile to see the real results. Longer than a few games.

For sure. It will be interesting to see how Gose responds to this too. With some pressure off it may help him. He is on the verge of becoming marginalized as a big-leaguer. And that is a shame as he has a lot of potential and talent.
When he was hitting the Tigers were winning.

Imagine that an umpire screwing up a call

So far, it looks like the Good Sanchez is on the mound, not HR Derby Sanchez. The Tigers need him to be sharp!

Iggy got screwed on that DP. Looked like a H and R. 2B stayed home and SS covered on a RHB. Go figure.

Jeez…I know some fans don’t think Miggy is worth the money. But I do. If he goes down, it may be time to blow up the team like some have suggested.

Well, he is down. Why and for how long?

I’m digging this!

Ugh…hopefully it’s not too serious with Miguel. But on the bright side 6 runs.

I like the underdog. So, QUENTIN Gose, nice job.

Holy Gose! I think that’s his first RBI in a looong time. Good hitting by Nick. An actual sac fly by Iggy. What’s happening here?

Oh, I forgot to mention our secret weapon (Carrera).

Gose! Sweet jump. Davis couldn’t get near that ball. This guy has tools and seems to be recognized for them on most all the baseball shows, but not by many Tigers fans. He just needs a chance to develop and won’t kill the team in the interim becuz he can go get the ball.

Okay. I’m excited. I’ll try to shut up.

injured leg

Anibal tiring?

Take him out. 8-.0. 110 pitches

That was an out with another 3B

yup!

(snap,snap) Wake up Brad! He’s given you a great game.

Does Ausmus want to break another SP?

So the ump decides to start squeezing him in the 8th.

My favorite pitcher gave it a shot.

Of course, those runs go to Anibal´ERA

Wilson 8 of 19 IRS so far

Ok, we need an out.

Umpires suck

Oh, Lord, please do not let them score any more.

Freaking Bautista not only struck out on the check swing but the final pitch. …umpires suck

Come on Wilson. Jabba and Gorzo are gone.

You gotta be f’ing kidding me

Blow this game and your season is truly over

9 of 19 IR for Wilson
, Good Ausmus, good

Something to finally feel good about. But seriously the umps didn’t help.

This is juist crazy. I’ll go completely nuts if they blow this.

BR scares me. Can’t watch, can’t stand it.

A feel good gAmerican has quickly been turned into a same old tiger’s game.

Great effort by Sanchez gone to waste. Ausmule waited too long to take him out, AGAIN. Now the BP can’t shut them down.

nah. Who would have thought Wilson would have stunk it up. He’s been so good.

A bad 8 th inning and the Blue Jays are back in it . Praying for a Tigers win.

Come on Tigers, we need some grit.

After the first hit vs Carrasco in the 9th, 2 outs. Francona went to the BP

Josh Wilson in. He had to be there in the 8th

So much for the theory about Avila handling pitchers. He was not replaced in the 8th

good point!

The famous Caty jacknife with the ball going over his forearm and not beyond the fingers of his glove.
If Cespedes had been playing soapy Zeke in like he should have this might have been Interesting

Ausmus….”not confident he’ll avoid the DL”. Oh boy

I just looked up “calf strains” and it can be mild, and it can be very bad. You heard the word “Achilles” mentioned. Let’s hope it’s not that bad.

A lot of stuff going on today. Right now, I’m thinking of the hitter before Carrera who could have been punched out by the umpire but instead ended up walking. Sanchez is good when he’s avoiding pitching from the stretch and I called the hit in that situation.
The lineup flowed nicely right up until the Cabrera injury. This is a frustrating season.
It’s not often possible but these relievers pitch better when given a clean inning to work. None of them are “put out the fire” types.

Crazy game, this game of baseball. Miggy has a potentially critical injury doing nothing out of the ordinary. Suffice to say, if it’s more than a couple of days, the all star break gives us a little cushion, maybe limiting the total time of absence. I agree with everyone; Wilson is much better in a begin the inning situation. Most relievers are. He was really pressing, as I think everyone was, seeing a huge lead almost totally turn into disaster. Rondon and Soria had enough to pull us over the finish line.
This gives me small hope that we could possibly take the series, if David brings his A stuff. I have never liked Bautista or Encanarcion. Guess I wish they were Tigers. Good to see Travis play for the first time, and not all all shocked that Carrera would break up the no no. I do like what we are seeing lately in Anabal. And he is much better from the windup as Rich alluded. All in all, what started out as a joyful event for the old English “D”, ended up as the last 15 minutes of a horror show- in other words, a Tiger win.
1. Did like the reshuffled order; even Miggy seemed more intune.
2. Goss should always be 8 or 9; he was so much more relaxed, far away from the leadoff spot. The glove is a necessity in CF; use Rags in other ways;keep him away fromCenter.
3. Romine delivers another base hit; makes a positive contribution in every game.
Kudos to the Martinez twins. I even thought Ian seemed a little more comfortable, leading off. If Miggy is out awhile, bring up Moya, let Julio play first(he could handle it) and see what happens. Right now it seems like Julio can do anything. VMar’s swing is getting better each night. So bring it on guys, and quieten the bats of this Toronto Juggernaut team.

6 weeks for Miguel. …..screwed

Miggy is out for 6 weeks.. AA will play 1B.

If the Tigers can’t remain competitive during Miggy’s absence, then sellers they might well become.

They need to be sellers regardless. This team needs to be shaken up. They can get some return for Price and Cespedes and they need to and it doesn’t necessarily mean they have to get prospects as we saw at the deadline last year. There were several deals where major league talent was exchanged in return for free agents to be. I just don’t think they’re going to keep those two once they hit the open market. Jeff

You can add Avila, Simon , Soria and , possibly, Nick to that list. Probably no one’s safe for the right price.

let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
The issue is something that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
I am very happy I stumbled across this in my search for something regarding this.

Asking questions are actually good thing if you are not understanding something fully, except this piece of
writing gives nice understanding even.

It’s awesome for me to have a site, which is useful
