also, i'm guessing the trade doesn't happen if Verlander was his 2011-12 self. never know though. there's some in the media that believe the Fister trade, which was a terrible return, was orchestrated by the owner's son, who is the heir to the throne. i sort of believe it because Mike Illitch was nowhere to be seen the latter part of last season due to some health issues. supposedly he is better now, although he is 90ish, and was the main voice on this deal.

Porcello is forgotten in nearly every discussion of Tiger pitching. Yet, quietly, he racks up the wins. One of the Freep writers commented that Frederick, during games when he is not pitching, has a notebook where he notates what he sees in pitchers and batters. A serious student of the game, that Porcello.

Oof. Can't imagine Torii Hunter's hand isn't broken.

Hunter: nothing broken. Just a bad bruise. Painful, but thank goodness it is only that. He will be day-to-day.

Yesterday, on the blah, blah,blah sports radio, callers were complaining about Alex Avila's lack of presence as a batter at the plate. Uh, he hit the home run in the 12th inning that saved the day.

David Price was everything we thought he was going to be. When he and his dog, Astro, arrive in Detroit, there certainly will be a celebration.

I wish I could set up an alert for when Betances is put in the game because he's the only Yankee worth watching. The at-bat with Miggy was some of the most enjoyable baseball I've seen all season.

At 5pm tonight, @t_masahiro18 & David Phelps will be stationed at Yankee Stadium Advance Ticket Windows, selling tickets and greeting fans.

 

Want to go so badly.

@ktsharp: Capuano threw 43 changeups, 32 for strikes (74%). Tigers were 0-for-14, 6 K in at-bats ending in a changeup.

Rick Porcello, NJ native who grew up a Mets fan, told @MatthewStucko, "I always said I hated Derek Jeter. But I really secretly loved him."

Or if he were '68 Gibson or '72 Carlton for that matter.

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 to see Leyland, next week, at PNC park.

19 innings. Two complete baseball games in one. All for a loss. A dismal ending as I was packing my suitcase for the trip to Pittsburgh Monday morning. I was totally spent after watching the game. I cannot imagine how the players feel. Bad news: Sanchez and Soria are on the DL.

Price pitched well. Only to see the lead become a tie. Welcome to the "club" said JV, Porcello, Scherzer, Sanchez, et al....

You actually watched that entire game?
