Post script: Buck Farmer did well for his major league debut!
And, here is YOUR Detroit Tiger lineup..... pitching, Buck Farmer! Oh my. The cupboard is bare. But, one never knows. So with Sanchez out for a month and Verlander out for the next start, our starting pitching staff consists of Farmer, Ray, Porcello, Scherzer, and Price. How fast life changes. I have nothing but praise for the PNC Park baseball game experience. Great venue. The riverfront and the bridge. Friendly crowd. Lots of quaint "Bucco" traditions. Fans...

I'm hoping that the Tiger bats were shipped, by mistake to Toronto. They certainly were not in New York! Porcello pitched well enough to keep us in the game. But.... Rick's family are all Met fans. Last year, or maybe it was the year before, the Tigers played the Mets and Rick was pitching. He told the press, "My family is here. But, not to cheer for me." It was neat to see Mr. and Mrs. Leyland, as incognito fans, at the game--sitting in the posh seats. I'm hoping...
