Detroit Tigers One Loss Away from Matching Last Year’s Start
For it's one, two, three strikes you're out, at the old ball game! And that's exactly what's happening to the Detroit Tigers right now.
They're striking out by not winning very many ball games. The Tigers current record is 9-23, which is a horrible start for a professional baseball team.
And according to mlive.com:
The A’s (14-19) entered this series on a nine-game losing skid but ended up taking four of five from the Tigers (9-23), who are now one loss away from matching last year’s start. They have lost 16 of their last 19 games.
That's pretty pathetic for a team to lose 16 of their last 19 games. And all this time I thought the Tigers were rebuilding their team to be much better, clearly not the case.
One of my friends went to a game this week at Comerica Park and watched the Orioles beat the Tigers by a score of 5 to 3. Win or lose, it's always fun going to a Detroit Tigers baseball game.
During that game, my friend kept texting me to keep me updated with all the highlights. I think the highlights were in favor of the Orioles.
Tigers Manager A.J. Hinch is getting frustrated with his team because like any good coach, they want to see their team win ball games, and that's not what's happening right now.
I know I'm going to sound off as a coach, but I keep saying the same thing about the Detroit Tigers, we need better pitchers.
We simply don't have enough really good pitchers on the team. I'm talking about pitchers like Justin Verlander, who is pitching for Houston once again. Or Max Scherzer who is currently pitching for the New York Mets.
Excellent pitchers for any Major League baseball team can make all the difference in the world when it comes to winning baseball games.
Once the Tigers reach that plateau, we'll start to see more wins and less losses!
