Game 63: The Minnesotas vs. The Torontoes

Correia (2-7, 6.11 ERA) vs. Happ (5-2, 4.12 ERA)

Time to get a winning streak starter, Mr. Correia. Somehow. That craptacular AL Central title isn't going to wait around all season. At least, I think it won't even though the Tigers seem to be doing their best to leave it on the platter.

My time in Manchester is finished and we've moved to an area that looks, basically, like every American mall area ever. Its pretty awful. There's still some real ale to be found, but its all in what seem to compare to TGI Fridays or the like. Fortunately, I won't have time to do anything, anyway, since we're here to conduct a trial this week. I did manage to introduce the Scottish sales guy that I'm with to Bengali Tiger last night, though and the same bar had this on cask as well.

  1. Plouffe getting a day off with a lefty on the mound. Yeah. At least he's being replaced by Nunez, but Plouffe has a much bigger career split than Nunez, who's almost evenly split. Plouffe has been slumping of late, but I would think you would want him to try to heat up against a lefty instead of sitting him. Give him the day off yesterday or the next time we face a righty. Hicks shoulder is hurting still and he could go on the DL soon. They'll probably just call up Fuld whether he's ready or not.

      That has to be one of the more frustrating things with Gardy. Not only does he refuse to platoon, he gives off days just randomly. He can connect the dots for reliever leverage but it doesn't extend to batters.

      1. Well, come on, be reasonable. It's not like there's some way he could know who the other team is scheduled to pitch the next day or something.

  2. I like Dozier batting second, especially with this Santana guy getting on base all the time.

  3. Oh hey, Brian Dozier scored a run this game already. He is on pace for about 6,000 this year.
