Tigers Win Third in a Row, Maroth Tries to Avoid 20th Loss Tonight

Nothing like a litle winning streak. Three wins, all one run games, against the almost as lowly Cleveland Indians has seemed to allay people’s fears that the Tigers will only win 39, or even 41. We’ll see if the can keep it up.

Gary Knotts had a fine start yesterday. If you remember, Knotts started the season in the rotation. Then like all the Tigers starters, he showed some flashes of brilliance. But eventually he tapered off, and Tram put him in the pen. Less then a week after that, he was back down in AAA. Part of the problem with having three plan B guys is you can’t send them down to the minors with fear of losing them, so Tram didn’t have a lot of flexibility this year.

The more I hear about Brian Kingman, the more odd he sounds. From voodoo dolls, to actually showing up for Maroth’s start tonight, the guy seems like head case. I can understand wanting to hear your name mentioned on occasion, but this is a little ridiculous. Funny thing about Kingman was his ERA was only 3.83 the season he lost 20. Of course this was in a different era, and the park adjusted league ERA for him that season was 3.76 (ERA+ of 98).

Another fantasy football draft tonight. And it’s my wife’s birthday, so we’ll have to fit something in for her between all the house work.
