Verlander Looks Horrible – Tigers Lose 11-1

Verlander got the raw end of the deal in his last start. He earned every bit of the boos he got today. He looked wild from the start, walking the first hitter on 4 straight pitches. It looked so promising, seeing the Tigers make Carmona throw 30 pitches in the 1st inning, only to see [...]

Armando Galarraga – Rookie Phenom?!?

I really don’t know what else to say. You score 8, they score 11. You shut them down completely for 9 innings, and they shut you down as well. Things just aren’t clicking. Detroit needed that win. They didn’t get it. On a night where Nate Robertson goes 8 2/3 scoreless innings, they can’t score [...]

Jair Jurrjens flat out pitched today. True enough – the Indians haven’t exactly been an offensive powerhouse lately, but they are in [...]
