I was at the Royals/Red Sox game and thus didn’t see this one, but I am overwhelmed by what I am seeing after the fact.
–Dontrelle had a 2010!Verlander-esque 107 pitches in 5.1 innings.
–Miguel Cabrera hit THREE freakin’ home runs, two off of Ben Sheets and one off of Andrew Bailey. Three homers. Three! In one game! He spread them out nicely too: one in the first, one in the fourth, and one in the ninth.
Three home runs! He was responsible for every single Tigers RBI in this game, all by his lonesome.
–Both teams were messy early and late. In the middle bits of the game, they both suddenly decided to play like they knew how to play. Weird.
–Gerald Laird changed his uniform number. He went from 8 to 12 (which Lloyd McClendon had been wearing).
“Just changing it up,” Laird said. “That’s all I’m doing. Maybe my luck will change a little bit.”
Right now G-Money himself weighs significantly more than his batting average. Awkward. I suppose at that point it’s time for massive changes, anyways…
