Save Us, David Price…

He had to do that in game 162 this season, but the sense of urgency in game 3 of the ALDS is a bit greater: lose, and the season is over.

With a high payroll, to go with high expectations, that won’t do…

Screen cap: Ian Kinsler dents a baseball.

This perfect swing would wind up being enough for the Tigers, as they win the season finale 3-0 vs the Twins, clinching the American League Central for the 4th straight year.

Kinsler himself had 3 hits on the day, while David Price went 7 1/3 strong innings, and Joe Nathan pitched a perfect 9th to close it out.

Bring on the Postseason…

Screen cap: Joakim Soria, caged closer


Say, Brad Ausmus, Dave Dombrowski gave up a couple of prospects in July for this man’s services. How about you let him out to play once in a while?

Joe Nathan is now forever unreliable and nerve-wracking as the closer, and the regression of Joba Chamberlain continues to loom as well.

USE SORIA. You’re not in a position to be ultra-stubborn here. Your best chance to win it all will be this year. You better use the proper pieces given to you before the fans burn Comerica Park to the ground.

Ian Kinsler RBI single… and a hell of a background that is, downtown.

David Price needs this new ball. Buster Posey lost his last one.
Rough first inning for David Price, who had gotten into early trouble in his previous start.
And speaking of trouble, the Tigers are in it. Salvaging this series is beyond necessary.

"Worst game I’ve ever had…" - David Price (The fans will probably agree with this. Especially the ones who booed him.)
