Game 3: Postponed

After a wild, windy win yesterday, the Tigers will have an unscheduled off day thanks to the weather. The game will be made up on September 10th, which is funny because playing it then runs the same weather risk they encountered today. I only caught the condensed version of yesterday’s game and there was plenty to like from an offensive standpoint. There is going to be anytime you put up 10 runs, but the lineup left 31 runners stranded including eight from Brandon Inge. As a team, the total was 12.

My favorite stat from yesterday: 9 walks including three from Magglio Ordonez. Three of the walks did come against Victor Zambrano, who could find away to walk someone that swung at every pitch. It doesn’t matter, though, nine walks against eight strikeouts works for me regardless of who it comes against. Curtis Granderson had a great day with two hits including a grand slam, five RBIs, a walk and a stolen base. He did strikeout twice, but he gets pass with that kind of stat line.

I’m really getting worried about Fernando Rodney, who imploded once again allowing two runs on three hits in two-thirds of an inning. I like how the bullpen shapes up to shorten the game, but it is not going to work until Rodney gets his act together.

The team heads to KC for three starting tomorrow 7:10 Central.

The best news of yesterday came when the MLB announced that they struck a deal with iNDemand to keep the MLB Extra Innings on digital cable. I was content to use especially with their premium feed coming through very nicely, but now that I have cable (I didn’t last year), I want to be able to watch games on TV.
