Birthdates and Verlander

Justin Verlander made his MLB debut last night in the second half of the Tiger’s doubleheader with the Indians. One start isn’t a good sample size, but he took the loss. He didn’t get shelled, but I’d hardly say he pitched well. I’m still not sure what Dombrowski and Tram were trying to accomplish with this, but I’m hoping Verlander quietly gets sent back to Erie and continues where he continues his great season, along with a more normal MLB progression.

Today is my 34th birthday. I’m not sure if that’s old by blogging standards anymore because there’s hundreds of baseball blogs out there now. Unfortunately my birthday won’t be nearly as fun as the long weekend since I have to work. So, it will come and go with little fanfare.

Um…I’m not sure which game you were watching, but he retired 12 of 13 before he was lifted.

I was sitting behind home plate and all I saw was three pitched up and over the plate that the Indians pounded. THen he figured it out and cruised. Ran out of gas a little at the 100 pitch mark, but what do you expect?

Game wasn’t on TV so I only had the box scores to work with. But I agree, after he worked through the first inning, he put it behind him and pitched a nice game.
