|Hey, coach; I found this lying behind this dirt mound. What’s it for?|
We supporters of the Big Tilde know how important it is to MVP voters (and us) that the Tigers make the playoffs. Falling 3.5 games behind the Indians in the AL Central and losing a game to the Yankees in the wild card standings does not help his cause or the Tigers’. However, we here at TheBigTilde.com don’t care to point fingers (1 for 5) at any particular person (5 left on base) because it’s counter-productive to the team effort (nice idea, Jim).
However, the authors of TheBigTilde.com like to think pitchers could also go more than 4.2 innings with fewer than six runs allowed against the team with the second-fewest runs scored in the American League. We’re wacky like that.
Still, we’re above any petty bickering, so we will concentrate on the positives from a 6-3 dismissal of the Tigers by the Royals last night in Kansas City:
The Big Tilde’s day: 4-5, 4 1B
Season to date: .359/.431/.598, 25 HR, 116 RBI (.404/.461/.712 w/9 HR and 28 RBI in August)
