    Jack Morris notes that Gardenhire's "hands are tied" with respect to pinch hitting or running. Might be a bit of an understatement.

    A discussion of whether or not he reverse-Houdini tied his own hands with roster decision input is outside the scope of color commentary, so there's no use holding it against Morris. Just sayin'.

    Pinto will be used as a pinch runner for Colabello next inning. Get with the progam.

    What'd you do?

    Terry Francona thumbing his nose at Ron Gardenhire

    edited to add: for those of you following at 35,000... Francona pinch hit for Morgan, thinning out his bench and using up his only backup OF.... Up 3 runs

    I love that the highlight of the Tigers' game included a sitting ovation from 2 of Detroit's most rotund residents.

    On a note related to Hermann's wacky misadventures in the outfield, KLaw has an article at four-letter about Bryce Harper's injury that speculates that even though catcher is top of the defensive value spectrum and corner OF is near the bottom, it may not be an easy transition.

    He probably will, but on a shallow pop fly just beyond the infielders...

    I agree, and am rooting for you to at least call a doctor.
