I'm beginning to think that pitchers are hitting Garver's bat not Garver hitting the ball where it's at

 

Seems to have the same swing on all pitches and when it's middle in he hits it hard anywhere else and it's a pop-up/slow roller

 

or maybe i'm just in a "How can we lose to the Tigers" funk

That should have been strikes two and three.

But, Angel Hernandez

Morrison’s BA is so low it takes more than one out to move it down further. Usually, even at this point of the season every at bat will move it by at least .001.

Bad game. A good game thread made it more tolerable.

Need to quit hyping up Joe's career numbers at Comerica

 

He's not the player he was, don't expect miracles.

Can we just shut down Santana? He doesn’t look ready at all. If we are calling up Kohl Stewart we might as well call up Gonsalves to replace Santana since this season is already shot.
