a simple question

Hey! Cats! Whatever happened to the whole concept of ‘run support’?

I was in favor of it, you know. As a baseball strategy. The starting pitcher more or less behaves himself, the bats show him some love. Everyone wins! Or, more specifically, the Tigers win. Which is what we want! It seemed like a good, solid strategy to me. Run support: support pitchers with runs. Simple enough for everyone to understand! Creates feelings of goodwill and happiness among teammates! Generally effective!

But you cats seem to have turned your backs on this whole idea. You scoff at run support. You claim run support is for weaklings and weenies, that big tough cats have no need of such things. And as a result poor Jeremy Bonderman is left standing there with his very good outing, wondering what the heck went wrong.

  1. And as a result poor Jeremy Bonderman is left standing there AGAIN with his very good outing, wondering what the heck went wrong.

  2. … and say goodbye to Dontrelle Willis. We hardly knew ye.

    I’m sooooooo frustrated with the Tigers right now. We’re playing the second and third tier teams of the league, and we’re looking terrible in the process. Can we please win a few games in a row? You know, to abate ulcer formation in my tummy? These last couple of weeks have been just horrible. :(

  3. If we can’t win, can’t the Twins at least lose?

    I have often suspected that our offense hates Jeremy Bonderman. I am now also beginning to suspect that they hate JV.
