Nate Robertson Out, Andrew Miller Up

Nate Robertson hit the DL with a tired arm.  Will Carroll didn’t mention anything about this so I’m not sure if it’s just that he’s been pitching like he’s hurt so they’re giving him some time off or that something is wrong and they’re checking it out.  Anyway, we should call Andrew Miller Mr Friday because he’s making his second career start tomorrow.  He’s been doing very well at Erie and he had that nice game for the Tigers a few weeks ago.  I’m going to get to watch most of this game too, unlike his last start, which I missed.

Chris brought up an interesting point in a comment to my last post.  Magglio Ordonez is on a wicked double pace (29) and even if he falls short of the record, 60 is well within his reach based on his start.  The last player to hit 60 doubles was Charlie Gehringer and Joe Medwick way back in 1936.  The Tiger team record is 63, which was set by Hank Greenberg in 1934.  The 1930s were the year of the double.  There have been six instances where a player has hit 60 doubles and five of those happened in the 1930s, including Earl Webb’s record 67 in 1931.


Scratch the Mr. Friday thing.  It looks like Miller is pitching on Sunday.
