Tigers Drop, Then Throw Away, Game to Blue Jays

And I mean that literally.

I didn’t listen to the game, but from the play by play, Vina made errors in the seventh and eighth inning, both of which led to unearned runs that would tie the game up. Then in the ninth, Craig Monroe made a throwing error that led to two runs that put the game away. I hate to say it, but this is the Tigers team of old, and this was the kind of stuff they were doing in spring training. I have a feeling Tram is going to have a little talk with the boys after this one.

Jeremy Bonderman appeared to pitch well in his second straight start, giving up 3 runs, 4 hits and walk, in six innings. Seven strikeouts brings his season total to 15 in 13 1/3 innings. I think he’s grown up since last year. You can’t argue with a 15:3 strikeout to walk ratio.

But, you can’t complain too much about a 5-2 start. Hopefully they’ll bounce back and play a good game tomorrow evening. Nate Robertson makes his first start of the season against Ted Lilly.

Tigerblog had another record day today with regard to traffic. It’s great to see people taking an interest in the site, and I appreciate everyone’s kind words. Most of the traffic today came from a well written piece by Josh Levin on Baseball Blogs at MSN.com’s Slate. You’ll see a lot of the regular names, and then, at the very bottom, I get a brief mention. Hopefully everyone who stopped by comes back as a regular reader.

I got my taxes done tonight. I know this is a family show, but I’m glad this shit is almost over. I was a little peeved that the Bush press conference pushed back “24” by an hour and a half.
