  • Re: Detroit Tigers, Volume 3 - The Alan Trammell version

    It was pouring. It wasn't going to let up. It's probably still raining there now.

    The game is official when 5 innings are completed, or 4 1/2 if the home team is ahead. We were in the 6th. Since the home team did not bat, and the top of the 6th had not yet been completed, I believe that the top of the 6th is stricken from the books.

    They were well within the rules to call this one. There is nothing to protest.

    We had 5 innings to do our damage, and in one inning we left the bases loaded, and left 2 more on in another.

      That umpire is an ********, regardless of whether he followed the rules. That crap should have been called in about the 3rd inning, and instead quite legally waits until the Tigers have loaded the bases in a 3 run game because "Oh crap, if they get another hit here, I'm going to have a hell of a time calling this game in an hour when I want to go home." He was literally one swing away from being this week's outrage in umpiring and realized it. "We erased the top of the 6th per the rule book. Not 4-4 anymore. Boston wins 4-1.
      He can go eat a bag of dicks for all I care.

              If we can rely on those two guys for the rest of the season we may end up somewhere.

              Don't know where that somewhere may be yet though.

                They've done their jobs all year, for the most part. It's the rest of the lineup that is the issue.

                If we've got to rely on them and nothing else, then you're right, we will finish somewhere: third place.

                        I wasn't trying to be a wise guy. I was thinking more in the line that those two have been carrying the Tigers for much of the season. And, if anybody can get us somewhere it would seem to be those two.

                        I realize it's not a big leap to state this obvious point.

                          6-3, 2 out in the 6th, and we're still not out of danger.

                            Case in point: if we blow this 6-1 lead. It's now 6-4.

                                Dear Mr. Benoit:

                                Thank you for the clean 8th inning. It was much appreciated by all of us. It was just what we wanted.

                                However, we would appreciate it if you would refrain from tossing the ball underhanded to Mr. Fielder, over there at 1st base, when you find yourself on the 3rd base side of the mound.

                                Thank you,

                                Tiger fans.
