Truth. They seem to be doing better even with maggs and others slumping. JV and Max are kicking ass. Move Coke to the pen and bring up Oliver. Mark Phone Post

i know it's too early, but i gotta say it so it doesn't happen. hope this all doesn't turn into the usual peak too soon before the break and then second half slump routine.

this time last year we had one of the best bullpens in the game, coke, perry, ni and zumaya were all killing it. so far only alburquerque has showed up, villareal part time.

felt bad for scherzer when benoit threw it away tonight, he'll get a no decision though yeah? so he can still keep his win streak going.

^ Well, goes to show how much I know, JV drops a shit-bomb and gets bailed by the pen and Avila.

Andy Oliver is scheduled to pitch this sat. I am interested in how he does. Furbush came in for Coke and was lights out. If he keeps it up, the Tigers staff looks tough. Mark Phone Post

Mark1 - 
The Pete -  I'm optimistic about the team despite an unproven catcher, inconsistent infield outside of Miggy, and 2/3 of an outfield.  That, the bullpen question marks and the notoriously slow-starting rotation.

Amiwrong?
Avila is still a baby.  Maybe platooning with VMart will help his development.  I am more than happy with Rhymes at 2B.  He hit .300 last year, smashed lefties, and continued that this spring.  I don't see that falling off much.  If Peralta doesn't pick it up, Worth is waiting in the wings.  And Inge is consistant.  Consistantly bad at the plate.  But, he is a monster in the field.  As far as the outfield is concerned, don't be surprised if you see Dirks at one of the corners later this year.

JV seems to have had a terrific spring, Scherzer... not so much.  Again, don't be surprised to see Oliver and/or Turner on the mound later in the season.  Plus, there is hardly a better setup and closer combo than Beniot and Papa Grande.

Of course, everyone looks like a superstar in the spring.  lol

Mark
  

 Lets review my comments.

Avila is on pace for an All Star season.  Check
Rhymes at 2B.  LOL.  Fail
Peralta isn't a concern.  He's raking.  But Worth is on the roster, at least.  Check
Inge still sucks.  Check
Dirks got called up.  Check
JV is being JV.  Check
Scherzer got off to a monster start, but cooled off a bit.  Check
Oliver got called up.  Check
After some struggles Benoit is back to his old self and Valverde is 15 for 15 in save opportunities.  Check/

 Maxie gets the win, but gives up too many runs, ERA approaching 5, yikes.

C- Avila having a solid season
1B- Miggy, no issues there
2B- Raburn will hopefully heat up with the weather, he usually does
3B- Inge.  Fuck him.
SS- Jhonny doing work, if all else fails they can move him to third and platoon Worth & Santiago
LF- Dirks should keep the job the rest of the year
CF- Austin is hopefully rounding into shape with his swing
RF- Brennan had 5 hits tonight, hits > .270 w/power.
DH- Martinez solid.  When Mags comes back they'll have a good rotation with RF, DH, LF, & C
SP- It's Verlander and cross your fingers
RP- Benoit seems to have it together now.  Need another arm to really step up.

Just one man's opinion.
