Thursday’s lineups: Tigers at White Sox

Tyler Collins underwent a chiropractic adjustment on his neck after yesterday’s game and was feeling better after neck spasms forced him out of Wednesday’s lineup, but he’s getting one more day to rest. He could be available to hit later. Mike Aviles gets his fourth consecutive start in right field tonight against James Shields. Aviles does have decent numbers off Shields, who has given up slightly better numbers to right-handed hitters for his career.

The White Sox brought back former Tigers nemesis Justin Morneau last week. He’s a career .297 hitter against the Tigers with 23 homers and 95 RBIs in 141 games, essentially a season’s worth of work. But he hasn’t faced Detroit since August 2014, when the Rockies visited Comerica Park.

a bit wary to ask, but what the heck is the lead photo?

Lakefront Path, that’s all I know.

Ducks in a row, maybe?

I was in Chicago last week for work…there was a few interesting art installationshow.
Mike had better be perfect….I don’t expect much from our fearsome hitters…1st inning did nothing to calm that fear.

TTBDNS. Pitching staffs must be drooling to face the tiger’s hitters

Shane Greene to the rescue, I hope.

Nice effort by Pelfrey. Not sure why he can’t get Ks with 95 but that’s the way his ball comes in.
Unfortunately when he goes 0-2 he can’t dust a hitter and starts to nibble too much. Been bettr though.
Glad to see Brad take him out.

Anyone heard anything on when a restart might be?

take them any way you can.Sometimes rain is good. Just enough offense to get it done:
1. Amazing Mike gets hit like a drum and still wins. Those good old double plays.
2. Ian continues his MVP march.
3. Miggy gets some lift on the ball. and it pays off.
Kudos to Mike, Mig, Ian, and Shane. Michael goes tomorrow against former Tiger Jacob Turner. Let’s get the split out of the way quickly; then we can go for the series.
The bats are bound to wake up sometime, won’t they?

Soggy or not its a much needed win for the good guys .

With the surplus of OF’s in Toledo and Erie, is there a potential trade for a reliever or starter brewing over the next week?

I started reading and right before I nodded off, thought to check in to see if the game had resumed. They had just announced the Tigers won. Pleasant surprise and very grateful.
