Read the last few posts from page 1, then come to page 2 and read one after the other in order. It's hilarious, in a sad kind of way. Each one becomes increasingly angry/depressing as the score is updated.

The Royals will come back, watch and see. :unsure:

Graffanino has given back the run he hit out and more. A perfect double play ball up the middle and he got a horrible jump and didn't come up with it. Even if that gets just one out, the Royals are out of that inning with the lead intact.


Of course, the Royals manager should have his head examined. His starting pitcher gives him four strong innings and then is clearly in trouble in the fifth. Instead of yanking him, the manager leaves him out there "trying to get him the win". Letting the Tigers bat around means he will probably get the loss instead of 4 good innings.

QCIASOXFAN
07-13-2006, 08:00 PM
But is any of this really surprising? Of course not, But for a few innings there Duckworth looked like CY Young and I actually thought the Royals were playing good baseball. Then he got hit around a little and got a nice groundball that the 3rd baseman made a double error on that allowed 2 runs to score. Ahhh how I love Royals baseball.

07-13-2006, 08:04 PM
1. The game isn't over yet. This is why you play 9 innings.
2. Bonderman gave up 4 runs and has already thrown 100 pitches in a total of 5.2 innings. Sounds like a Vazquez performance to me. Err, wait, even Vazquez owns the Royals.

I'd love to see Detroit lose, but really it's not that big of a deal.

We have 12 games left with these guys, that's going to determine what happens.

Detroit is a good team, we are a better team. As long as we take care of our business, we will be fine. Don't forget that we OWN them when we play them.

As long as the Sox don't go on like a 10 game losing streak, it doesn't matter what Detroit does.

Checking on games remaining against teams with 'losing' records, shows Detroit has 32 games remaining against them, the Sox 31.

Who do you guys think I should be pulling for this weekend between the Sox and the Yanks? I really hate the White Sox, and would love for the Tigers to win the division. However, it seems that I should want the Yankees to lose every game as the playoffs are all that really matters. Give me some tips...

I'm sorry, I thought you guys were already my friends.

I guess hate is a strong word, so I will retract my statement and give you a new one: I have a strong dislike for the rival of my favorite team.

I have decided though that I will be pulling for 2 of 3 from the Sox this weekend. Then hopefully the Tigers can reverse their fortunes against your "good guys" next week, which by the way will be the biggest series in Comerica Park history (I will be going to two of the games and I can't shut up about it).

You look at it this way, I look at it like this. Bonderman looked like crap yesterday, and the Gambler certainly looked like he was reverting back to his regular old Second Half self tonight. I'll take my chances if the Tigers are giving up 11 hits in 7 innings to the worst team in the league.

No team is worse than the Royals, and they needed miracle rallies to beat them. I heard the same garbage from you last year about Cleveland, and we all know how that turned out.

Cleveland was on fire for seven weeks, Detroit's been on fire for over three months...big difference.

For the Sox to either win the division or assure themselves of the wild card (which is just as good in my opinion) they simply can not lose anymore to bad teams.

That's what has really bugged me about this damn team.

I talked last week with one of the beat writers who covers the team. We were talking about this and he was amazed the Sox have had the trouble that they have with these clowns.

He specifically talked about K.C. Tampa and Seattle. His comments were that the Royals beat the Sox because the Sox were flat, expecting to roll over them. Tampa won he said because the Rays manager did a better job then Ozzie. He was most pissed about the losses to the M's saying that no team should ever lose a game to a Mike Hargrove managed club. (I take it that he thinks Hargrove is an awful skipper :D: )

Detroit right now has 11 losses to teams with losing records, the Sox have 20...to me that's the difference in the season.

What is so unbelievable? That Carlos Guillen just a hit a 325-ft homerun? That Reggie Sanders couldn't jump more than 2 inches off the ground to try to rob it? Or that Gene Lamont did a cartwheel?

Yeah, and we all knew that Cleveland was eventually going to cool off and come back down to Earth. The Tigers are a pretty good overall team, but they're not this good. The Sox just need to win and they will take this division. Detroit is yet to see a slump...and it happens to every team. We thought the Sox were invincible last year, but they weren't, and the Tigers are not invincible either. Their two top starters just gave up 13 runs in their last two games, and they're built around pitching. That offense can score 10 against the Royals, but can it score 10 against the Red Sox, Yankees, A's, White Sox, etc.? I think not.

What I don't like is that for all the pointing at the Tigers we did when they had a crappy run against the AL East teams, we are now well below .500 against that division, and if we don't take the next two from the Yankees we will have lost series to every team in that division. Much as I like our team, I would rather it not come down to having to win 10 out of 13 or 11 out of 13 against Detroit in order to win the division, and not being able to beat their record against the AL East takes away one of our other chances to pick up games. I don't believe its at all the case, but if we and DET continue to struggle against non-division teams people will start to wonder if our great records are not a true reflection of quality, but of beating up a diminished CLE, getting an early jump on MIN before they brought in the young kids, playing 19 against KC, and getting to eat the NL Central alive.

A quick recap of Detroit's starting pitching for this series:
Zach Miner: 4.1 IP, 5R, 5ER, 8H, 2BB, 1K
Justin Verlander: 7.0 IP, 0R, 2H, 2BB, 6K
Kenny Rogers: 4.0 IP, 5R, 5ER, 6H, 1BB, 2K
Jeremy Bonderman: 5.2 IP, 4R, 4ER, 7H, 5BB, 8K

Outside of Verlander, that's not very encouraging, especially when Rogers and Bonderman have been significantly worse pitchers in the second half compared to the first half. I think Verlander will start to fall off as his innings start to pile up, and Miner may already be feeling the heat of a long season.

farmer says they are a much improved team now!!!

In April they DID look like a much improved team. They had more veterans than in the past. In fact, there were people posting at WSI about the Royals having a better bullpen than the Sox. As it turns out, they have lost a lot of games specifically because of the bullpen. The Royals could have won three of four this weekend. They didn't mostly because what seemed to be the team's strength three months ago has turned into a leading weakness. Really, that happens to relievers who have to go out there every day.

As for the Royals selling tickets, I won't criticize any Royals fan for going to the games. If the Sox were on track to lose 100 games this year and I lived in Chicago, I would still be going to the games. I might be going to more games than I would if I were there when the team was successful because they would be easier to get and less expensive.

This has been mentioned as a reason for worry on some Detroit boards. I'm not too concerned as of right now though, and figure the next 2 series against the White Sox and the A's will tell us a lot. Bonderman looked good even though he gave up those runs and has been lights out lately so I'm really not worried about him. Maroth may be back relatively soon so I'm not too worried about Miner, plus we have Sanchez ripping up AAA, so we have two potential replacements if Miner falters. The one I am most concerned about is Rogers. Fortunately he is probably the most adept at handling it mentally.

Verlander has only ever thrown 130 innings in a season previously, and he's approaching 120 with this last start. They are going to have be very careful with him, or he's going to hit the wall.

Still, they're a good team. They've got a smart guy managing them. They won't just hand us the division. We're going to have to take it.

I seem to recall the Tigers losing 3 of 4 to New York, 2 of 3 to Boston, 2 of 3 to the Sox and then dropping the first of a three game series with Toronto.

Math isn't my strong suit but that's losing 8 of 11 no?

What's scary is that in fact, the Tigers MAY have already had their slump and that the Sox weren't able to take advantage of it.

Do you always use reverse psychology, or what? It's okay to say that the Tigers will hit a slump. Has their pitching slumped? No...they lost those games because their offense can't score runs against good pitching. I don't believe that was a slump, I think that they lost those games because their offense is mediocre and cannot hit good pitching. Just look to the Sox and A's, and how well they've fared against those two teams.

They've gotten great pitching, but their pitching still doesn't match up well against other teams' good pitching. Runs don't come very often for them against a good pitcher, and if they can't score runs, then they're not going to win no matter how good their pitching is.

There's a huge difference between the 2005 Sox and the 2006 Tigers. The 2005 Sox could push enough runs across against a real good pitcher to win the game. That team was much more fundamentally sound than the Tigers are now, and fundamentals are a necessity...that's why we lost on Friday and today, because we couldn't do the fundamentals right. Their pitching will always keep them in the game, but if you match them up against some of the best, they can't win because they can't score enough (even if it is 3-4 runs).
