    I don't know if I'd say Monroe killed us. Onbviously his day at the plate was absolutely brutal, and the ball that dropped between him and Guillen led to a run. But he also made 2 pretty nice catches in left, both of which saved at least one run. I figure he had a tough day, but not as bad as it seemed.
    No, it was brutal. Those two nice catches were cancelled by the fact the he cost us that third run in the 1st inning. 0-4 w/ 4 K's is brutal.

      Oh don't get me wrong, I agree with you. I'm just saying that without those 2 catches it's not even a 3-3 game(although without the miscue it's a 3-2 game) I'm also of the opinion that a strikeout is no worse than any other out in many situations, and can actually be a "better" out in some situations. But in all honesty, I've never been a big fan of Monroe anyway. I thought we needed to upgrade in LF before last season, and despite Monroe's late inning heroics and clutch hitting last year, I felt the same way going into this season. He just doesn't get on base enough. a guy with a career .310 OBP and .771 OPS is not the guy I want as my starting LF. And even though he makes some nice catches once in a while, he's still below average LF defensively, so that doesn't even make up for his poor performance at the plate. Personally, I'm hoping Clevlen stays on track, and Maybin developes quickly so we can have an outfield of Granderson in left, Maybin in center, and Clevlen in right sometime in the near future. Or if Maybin fills out like some suspect he will, Granderson in center, Maybin in left, Clevlen in right.

        I can't believe Leyland pinch ran with Neifi instead of Infante on Monday! He should have had him try and steal 2nd base.

          Was Clevlen on the opening day roster?

            No, but he will be called up soon enough.

              Man, some of you guys need to go post on PL's baseball board once in a while. Maybe get some action going over there. I think I'm like the one that posts anything.

                  Now I'm pissed. My splitter's screwed, so I'm having to switch from having cable to having internet. I was screwing around on here and PL's baseball board all day and forgot the game was on. I missed 8 of the 9 runs!

                  And I just have to say, I think it's hilarious looking back on all the Tigers fans that wanted to sign Burnett. This guy is either injured, or getting hit in the AL. He's everage at best here and I remember people saying we should overpay to sign this guy. I remember saying "why, he's no better than anybody we have right now." I believe last season sort of proved me right, and I believe this season will confirm it.

                    Burnett's extremely average. Just happened to have a career year where he threw over 200 innings and kept his ERA under 3.5. But looking at his numbers before that, there were basically like what he did last year. Always funny how that happens during a contract year with a weak FA pitching market.

                                Well that was an adventure. A win is a win I guess, but you can't let a team back in the game with poor defence when you've got them down and out. I have confidence this team will get their act together and still take the Central. But if the defense doesn't improve and the bullpen keeps this up, it could be a long season. Defense wins chamionships, in any sport, and with us not really having a big strikeout starter other than Bonderman, we need the type of defense we had last year to be successful. I think they can pull it together, but in the tough AL Central, we need to be playing top notch ball all year long.
