Best of five?

Brian Eno’s daily diary of the 2019 tigers. “These games sound great in the background, as a kind of sonic furniture, but also hold up as intelligible when you pay attention.”

"I didn't want to leave the dugout after I was taken out of the game, so I pissed into a bottle."

Matches really needn't last more than an hour. Productive chat with Rob about generative bullpen management and fifth base.

*somewhat revolting, unnecessarily descriptive anecdote about potentially making it to "fourth base" with a one-third-his-age concessions employee whose pleasantry was mistaken for flirtation*

Designing alternate pitching motions for Jordan. It seems hopeless.

Pine tar is an utter assault on every sense.

Asked when the Tigers not scoring runs would become a concern, manager Ron Gardenhire said, “When you guys leave the room. I’m going to cry and tear the pictures off the wall. I’m going to drink heavily.”

Earlier this week Ron allowed all the managerial decisions to be decided via oblique strategies. Resulted in a perfect game for about 7 innings. Then they destroyed nothing, the most important thing. I've encouraged extra innings as way of lulling yourself into a win. When things get extra boring, they start to get really interesting. A scoreline of matching zeroes is a beautiful, mesmeric thing. Long may it continue. Nothing could be more ambient, yet it still holds your attention. Where's the edge? Where does the frame start? We have only just begun the journey of these 486 hours together.

i have no idea how the announcers are able to say Buck Farmer's name without accidentally calling him something else.

look at all those runs

Doing great considering 7/9ths of the lineup’s inability to put the ball in play.

Was not expecting some of the unknowns to erupt against Chapman, among other developments.

Miguel Cabrera ended up at first base on his 105.5 mph drive off RF wall, but it earned him his first RBI of the season. Also Tigers' first run in first three innings of a game this year.

Boyd has been good to excellent despite a pretty stacked first month schedule. Should be interesting once he starts delving into the bottom feeders of the AL teams' lineups.

Question: You got blamed for a lot of what happened here (by fans), fair or not. Can you address that?

Brad Ausmus: "You can keep blaming me. It makes it easier."

Tigers' minus-56 run differential thru 39 games is their worst since 2003 and their 7th-worst ever. Only once in franchise history have they been less than 10 games under .500 with a minus-50 run differential at this point.

Eugenio Suárez
December 11, 2014: Traded by the Detroit Tigers with Jonathon Crawford (minors) to the Cincinnati Reds for Alfredo Simon.

A joy to tune into the Tigers and within a few minutes hear Jack Morris mutter about his disappointment in the fan base and crack a sour joke about sports journalists' lack of athleticism.

surely there must be somebody out there who can right this ship by reordering the lineup via Spore or Koan or some comparable software
