Crazy that Tigers have worse run differential than us but are 9 and 8.

Their hitting approach was suspect last year and they fired the assistant hitting coach, yet retained Jacoby. I guess they did not get to the root of the problem. These guys save their hardest swings for 2 strikes.

This might possibly be the worst lineup we've put out in the last three seasons.

The ump called a quick pitch, which ends up being ball 4 and a walk and was straight **** trash.
9. Similarly, IF THOU HAST SPENT the entire offseason predicting that thy team will stink, thou shalt not gloat, nor even be happy, shouldst thou turn out to be correct. Realistic analysis is fine, but be a fan first, a smug smarty-pants second.

3-0 count and Trash (Travis) grounds out. He can't even hit with the count in his favor.. :banghead: Please do something about this offense! It's unwatchable right now.
