Tigers Take Game Two

A grand slam from Craig Monroe and some great pitching by Jeremy Bonderman did this trick in this one.  After two games, we’re right where we started with a 4 1/2 game lead. 

I think today might be most interesting pitching matchup.  You have two pitchers (Jose Contreras vs. Kenny Rogers) who had solid first halves, but both are starting to taper off.  It’s get away day, so we could some interesting lineups, at least on the Tigers side.  And not to curse myself, but the greatest chance for rain will be around game time, so there’s a chance this one won’t even be played.  I’ll be at the game so I’m hoping the bad weather holds off.

Can someone help me understand why Leyland plays Thames in LF when Monroe DH’s? If they are both going to play then why not DH Thames, because Monroe is a better fielder. That would save us from the 8th inning Alexis Gomez appearance.

Monroe is still not 100% from his ankle injury and has battled bad hamstrings. He actually t weaked his hamstring in the game today. Plus monroe is not really that much better than thames in the outfield.
