I have a modest proposal for you Jim Leyland – start a reliever and bring Jeremy Bonderman in during the 2nd inning. Don’t give me any nonsense like “well Jerkwheat, wouldn’t that just make the 2nd inning the same as the 1st for Bondo?” It’s bullpucky. Bondo is simply confused by the number ONE and therefore must not be allowed to pitch the first as it causes him to give up a minimum of two runs every FREAKING time.
Once again, The Big Tilde came through with an RBI single in the 1st in his efforts to foil Bonderman’s dastardly plan to always be pitching without a lead, but his efforts for the night were simply not enough. A sixth inning collapse gave the Yankees a five run lead from which the Ye Olde English D could not recover. After last night’s 7-2 loss and with the Indians laying a spanking on the Royals, the Tigers fall right back to 2.5 games behind the AL Central Division lead and continue to dig their hole in the Wild Card race even deeper.
Maggs was 2-4 with 1 RBI.
YTD Los Tilde Grande is hitting .359/25/116 with a .430 OBP and a .605 SLG
