Tigers @ Astros, April 4, 2023

Framber on the mound

Jeff Nelson off to a real shaky start so far. No clue where the outside corner is/isn’t.

Hey How about lets not the Vierling guy beat us today?

My grump has left the keyboard. Lets win one for Billy Doran today - he needs a win.

1-0 Tigers. They’re a machine.

Jesus Fucking Christ, Pena. What an absolute fucking duck of a throw. Anywhere near the plate and Baez is out by 10 feet.

Also, that pitch was a fucking meatball.

I’d really like to to see the 2022 version of the Houston Astros as soon as possible.


Jesus Christ, that was a goddamn pitiful at bat by Yordan.

Frozen on a fastball in the happy zone. Yuck.

Pena works the count 3-1 then hits a rocket right at their SS. 1 out.

Bregman swings at a pitch around his eyes but eventually works a walk.

Yordan gets absolutely abused on a 3 pitch strikeout. H fouled back strike 1, took a breaker on the top of the outside corner, then took a meatball right down the fucking middle.

Abreu chops one down the 3rd base line, Schoop fields it right after it bounces over the 3rd base bag, and the throw pulls Tork off the bag. Runners on 1st and 2nd, 2 out for…

Tucker takes a ball, rips one in to left field, Bregman with a great read and he scores easily. Tie game!

Julks the DH swings at a high fastball, strike 1. Takes a breaker at the top of the zone, 0-2. 22 pitches now for Manning. Foul tip in the mitt, 3 pitch K.

Baez swings at a 55 footer, 0-1. Swings at a high fastball, 0-2. Bounced another one, 50 foot curveball, fucking awful pitch gets away from Maldy. Maldy gets to it quickly but can’t get anything behind the throw, runner advanced to 2nd. Baez foul tips a fastball in to Maldy’s glove, ponche! 2 outs.

Greene, takes one just off the outside corner that’s been a strike at least 5 times already this game, 0-1. Fuck you Jeff Nelson, you goony giant. Up and in, 2-0. Grooved for a strike, 2-1, shot the other way in to left field, Yordan charging and will have a chance at home, fires it AND HE’S OUT AT HOME!

Great throw and great tag by Maldy!

A quick side note, the commericals on MLB.tv are like 50x louder than the broadcast, and it’s fucking OBNOXIOUS.
