Cats v. Birds

*Cabrera knew he was on camera.  He was striking poses trying to look tough.
*Jackson has the day off, and Rhymes is in instead.  He got a double at lead-off, therefore it’s working so far.
*Bottom of the first, 0 outs, guys at first and third. . .looks good from a Toronto point of view.
*It’s 2-0 Toronto with only 1 out.
*Cabrera got his 30th homerun of the season , second of the series.  (3-1 Toronto)
–Rogers Centre is second in all of the Major League in homeruns given up.  Yankee Stadium is number one.
*The 4th ended with a call of “out” at home plate, but it looked like Escobar was safe.  Then Inge was called safe at first, when it looked like he was out.  It’s nice to have an equal amount of bad calls, but they’re never truly equal.  One is always going to be a bigger play/call when the game is over.
*I always liked it better when a pitcher could field a ball.  Of course, it’s never fun when they field against you.  It was an amazing play by Morrow to have the sense to turn 180 degrees and get the play at home rather than take the easy out at first and give up a run.
*Random Trivia: There were 9 pitchers in this year’s All-Star Game who have undergone Tommy John’s surgery.
*Hill’s triple makes me think of the Hank Aaron quote, “The triple is the most exciting play in baseball. Home runs win a lot of games, but I never understood why fans are so obsessed with them.”
*And with the triple, Figaro’s game is done.
*Bautista was out trying for a triple.
*The Tigers look like they’re falling apart.  No matter what they do they can’t seem to catch the ball.  It’s like watching “The Bad News Bears” (do you know that scene with the circus-esque music?)
*Raburn’s ground rule double puts men at 2nd and 3rd with no outs.  Let’s see if the Tigers can do something with RISP, or if they’ll turn their RISP into LOB.
*Bases loaded on a walk with one out is making fans on both sides anxious.
*Casper Wells was recently called up from Toledo.  He was brought in to pinch hit for Will Rhymes.  He did all he could with a double to drive in two runs.

A huge rally, but one run short of causing any damage past making the score look better in the paper tomorrow.  In the end, a loss is still a loss, rather it be by 1 run or 100.
