Those seats the announcers are in are pretty cool. You can just have those, they aren't tickets. So, if you ever happen to be at a game early without decent seats elsewhere, go to the left field bar and see if you can grab one of those.

Unless it's a game I'm at early also. Then fuck you.

They're just not going to do it tonight. Sometimes you just know when this team isn't going to hit. That would be right now.

How did Tigers backup catcher Alex Avila become one of the best hitters around (for now)?


“The ball is just finding the holes,” Avila said. “I haven’t changed anything, really.”

Avila leads the major leagues with a .380 batting average (for hitters with at least 75 plate appearances). Granted, it’s not a huge sample size, but his stats have been so good that they are impossible to ignore.

On Sunday night, Avila reached base three times in a 5-2 loss to Texas, giving him a .494 on base percentage, which also leads the major leagues.

So how do you explain this?

How did a backup catcher, who hasn’t hit over .243 in the last six years, suddenly become a hitting machine?

I'm stunned he has that kind of an arm. With a bullpen that ranks towards the bottom of the league it is hard to argue with bringing him up.

My faith in Fulmer was OK - the hitting wasn't.

Add to the Gose thing that he's a Lefty throwing 99 - that's even more rare.

He did give up a run in 1 IP. I'm sure he needs some work. 99 isn't gonna cut it in the bigs if it's straight and he can't locate it.

Can the Tigers score 1 run on the Astros?

Houston's pitching and defense is amazing and it seems like the team is in a slump.

Agreed. They will use up their 2 or 3 decent relievers, and have to bring in K Rod or another schlep and will get walked off.

In other MLB action...just need the Cubs to hold on here.

Nice job rat tail. 6 outs. Couple of hard hit balls but he got the job done. Greene has some nasty stuff.
