  1. I agree with both Thomas Butch and Mike F. JV was impressive throughout his outing and, if not for two different outfield misplays, he could have had a shutout. Iggy’s change of agents was a surprise. I asked Holly for her take on it’s impact for him possibly re-signing w/ the Tigers in one of the local paper’s comment section. I asked her this question, not because I am completely enamored with him (although I am curious), but primarily to drive some commenters crazy. It seems that some posters have issues with a woman knowing more about a sport than they do.


  2. Most encouraging to me were a couple of Ausmus’s decision in the opener. He did not pull Castallanos for a defensive replacement late in the game, and he did pull Greene when he clearly didn’t have it after two batters. These may not seem like big moves (or non moves), but they are contrary to what he often did last year and that drove me crazy.


  3. Jacoby Jones with zero strikeouts so far in first two games. It may not seem like much but this is a guy who struck out over 40 pct of his plate appearances last year in the majors and 30 pct in AAA . Compare his current career minor league K levels to all big leaguers and he’s a tremendous longshot to stick around and have a MLB career as only one current MLB player (George springer) has struck out the same levels in minors and have had productive MLB career. Maybe he’s fixed his awful contact rates as all the other tools appear to be there for him.


  4. Most encouraging was JV’s stellar performance. Next up, Nick’s approach at the plate, & Upton’s two BB’s. Bonus, Avila actually got an RBI 🙂


  5. JV, Jones and NC are obvious plus signals. But for me, most encouraging is J-UP. His bat looks alive and the fact that he returned for 2nd game after “contused” (really?) knee is HUGE.


    • I have to respectfully disagree Jerry. The Tigers need to learn to find ways to win when the injury bug hits them. It is a change in thinking for the whole organization. That means having viable replacements not just roster fillers Look at how the Indians did it last year with more injuries than the Tigers. Injuries are part of the season, not an excuse for not winning.
