Game Thread, Saturday April 28, Tigers vs. Yankees

Lost somewhere in all the hype about how Justin Verlander is now the best pitcher in baseball is the fact that the Yankees have typically hit him well. Last night’s game was no different, as the bombers pulled off an impressive 7-6 come from behind victory to beat the Tigers. Today’s game doesn’t augur as kindly for New York. Freddy Garcia has struggled mightily this season. The Tigers, on the other hand, feature one of the deadliest lineups in baseball. Call me a pessimist, but I don’t see Sweaty Freddy getting through four. The Tigers will counter with Drew Smyly. Game time is 4pm on Fox. Enjoy.

  1. Sure it’s on Fox? My listings say YES, with Cardinals-Brewers on Fox.

  2. OMG!!! Just checked the Gameday score (game not on any channel in Houston). There is no way Garcia should start another game unless he is injured and goes on the DL. This is as bad as Hughes last year.

  3. Quote of the day. Dave Dembrowski on Delmon Young:

    “This was a person that was not in a very good state as far as his sobriety,” Dombrowski said.

    “Garcia has looked terrible ever since being hit by that linedrive in st.

    He was throwing harder before that, I think he’s injured.”

    Where did the line drive hit him, Michael?

  5. I love it when Dr. Love has to earn his saves. Does he get a save for letting it get within ten feet of blown?
