L-Rod was spectacular against the Mariners, giving up only 4 earned runs in the 8th. Unfortunately, the Tigers failed him yet again and couldn't score more runs then he gave up. I don't know why this class act sticks around and continues to toss like a Cy Young candidate for less than what he's worth. He's a Saint. He lifts the Tigers up on eagles wings and never complains. He just needs more chances to showcase his filthy repertoire.
Plain and simple. When the Tigers have at least a 12 run lead "Franny" can usually see the win. Opposing hitters don't want to sniff his 85 mph gas. They just can't catch up. Every time he pitches, somebody looks like a fool. When can we extend his contract?
K-Rod will turn it around. Ausmus knows he just needs to keep trotting him out there. If it takes 20 blown saves in a row, we just need to let it happen. Anything to help one of the all time greats return to form. It's not about the Tigers winning or losing, it's about helping K-Rod get through this. We owe this Tiger great as much for all the fantastic saves we've had the pleasure of watching all these years. In the famous words of Tina Turner, "You're simply the best".
K-Rod is the best fungo pitcher is baseball. When he tosses batting practice the talent is obvious and he's a shoe-in for the Rolaids fungo reliever of the year. Keep that in mind before disparaging him. We don't know how good we have it.
K-Rod is the best reliever in baseball. The Tigers offense really let him down again giving him a meager two run lead to work with in the ninth. This guy is a magician, but you can't expect him to keep pulling a rabbit out of his hat. He needs more ten run leads so he doesn't have to feel so nervous. I'm willing to bet he would have more saves if the Tigers gave him ten run leads before bringing him in. He's just that good.
He's just consistently good. Worth every dime they pay him. One of the better closers in the game. When they bring him in I shut the TV off because the save is a done deal. What more can he do to help this team. What if he bolts Detroit at some point?
Same old piece of crap. Given up a couple of long balls in the ninth. Get used to seeing plenty more as the season goes forward. 2 pitch wonder, guess fastball adjust and smash the hell out of the breaking ball (doesn't really break, just a much slower version of his fastball). Going to be another loooooooong season for the hapless pussycats.
