Yeah, less than 24 hours after posting about my Blogger blog on Livejournal, I went and migrated to WordPress. I’d hate me too, folks, especially if you were actually following me on Blogger.
More after the jump.
Not much to talk about on the Tigers front today. They got shellacked by the Yankees 12-3 in A.J. Burnett’s spring debut. Nate Robertson, I hear tell, did not look sharp, and Dontrelle, well, Dontrelle gave up two runs on three hits in two innings, along with two walks and two strikeouts. Nothing too special there.
Umm, apparently the Tigers’ pitching staff issued TEN walks. Count ’em, TEN WALKS. Four of them by Nate Robertson. I suppose you could try and put a positive spin on it, and tell yourself that Nate was just being generous, but . . . yeah. Not working.
By the by, non-roster invitee Scott Williamson took the brunt of the Yankees beating, boasting an especially putrid line of SIX runs and FOUR walks on TWO hits in TWO THIRDS OF AN INNING. That’s Dontrelle-of-2008-worthy, right there.
If you’re looking for some positives to glean from this game, know this: Fernando Rodney shut the Yankees down in his one inning of work with zeroes across the board, along with three Ks. Way to be studly, Fernando. It’s the power of the alligator tooth, y’all.
The Tigers’ offense was pathetic, mustering only three runs on four hits, but Jeff Larish got two of those hits, and Will Rhymes hit the Tigers’ only homerun of the game. Those two accounted for .666 (oooh, evil) of the Tigers’ hits today; Maxim St. Pierre accounted for the other one.
Okay, I think that’s enough on that game.
