Dozier has 72 walks. That keeps the OBP respectable.

I am waiting for a long ball to say "home plate is scoring position".

Bases loaded, nobody out. Bunting situation for Schafer??

Wow. They're well on their way... That scoring drought feels like it was a long time ago... Kind of like the tigers' playoff hype.

Yes, it is problematic, ain't it?

 

By the way, it's gotta kill a contending team and its fans when a team out of the hunt does this type of number on them.

I wanted to see Vargas bat with bases loaded.

Damn you Joe, not drawing a walk there. :)
