Deja Vu For Todd Jones

Last year, from May 30 through June 14, Todd Jones had about as tough of a stretch as I’ve ever seen a closer have.  From that point on, he threw fairly well but during that stretch, four Tigers’ losses fell on his shoulders.  It looks like Todd Jones is going through a similar stretch beginning with May 28th’s game against the Rays.  I’m not quite sure why Jones was left in there other then that Leyland must have thought Jones was still his best option.  There’s not a lot of argument that the pen is in rough shape and until Joel Zumaya and Fernando Rodney come back, things will be dicey.  The best way to get back on track is to pick up a win tonight.

The Twins are getting hot and they now trail the Tigers by just one game in the loss column with the White Sox right on their heels.  If the Indians start rolling, those three teams could all be in the middle of the Wild Card race so like we all thought, it’s going ot be an interesting season in the Central.

Congratulations to freqent commenter Ryan Cassidy for winning the trivia challenge.  He chose Beck’s Blog as his favorite site and Jason Beck was nice enough to donate his winnings to charity.  Ryan won the contest by answering four of the ten questions correctly.

It’s Chad Durbin going up against Cliff Lee tonight.  They’ll be competing with the Pistons/Cavs game.
