we made it interesting, but alas, it was not to be. Halladay is a damn good pitcher. We got them tomorrow.

Is it fair to say we may have some pitching issues?

Hey, if it wasn't 3 bad innings, we had a shutout going!

If Verlander is going to pitch like that all season, might as well wrap it up and call it a year right now.

Good to see the Jays might actually have some bats this year. Lind & Snider are going to be a formidable duo for many years.

Boy, it's a good thing we shored up the bullpen by signing all these great relief pitchers. Rincon and Lyon certainly have been masterful.

Don't want to judge a person two games in, but Lyon gave me Grillie flashbacks!

All that hard work by Jackson and our "awesome" bullpen let's him down. How man home runs are the guys out in the pen going to give up? Brandon is on a roll.

On one hand, there's blame to go around after that one: in the top of the 8th the offence failing to add to a lead with the bases loaded; in the bottom of the 8th a bad bounce on Inge leading to an error and a ball sneaking under Everett's glove prolonging the inning before Rolen's bomb.

But you could also tell Leyland had no confidence to go to the bullpen in the 8th and stuck with Jackson longer than he wanted to. I hope Lyon's getting that out of his system.

Jackson, Cabrera, and Inge look great. I'm with you rwfan007--some people love to dump on him, but Brandon's been my favorite for years too.

Good job DD. Everyone in the world knew the bullpen sucked and you signed Brandon Lyon. It's going to be a long season unless we get a miracle turnaround in pitching.

I don't know about my favorite, there really have been a lot of good guys to choose from over the past couple years, but Inge has always been up there for sure. Dude has stuck with the Tigers through thick and thin. He'll play in his 1,000th game as a Tiger very soon. I always said he needs to play third and not catch and his hitting will be fine.

Much better tonight. Miner got out of the first inning bases loaded, no out and cruised. I dont know who Perry is, but he's my new favorite bullpen pitcher.

Perry is the other hotshot rookie they brought north. He's supposed to have a pretty nasty fastball, but you must really hate our bullpen if that outing was enough to make him your favorite. I hope that was just majors-debut jitters and not his actual pitching style because Fernando Rodney is as much "wild, sometimes effectively" as I can take.

Oh, I reaaaaaaaaallly hate our bullpen. Seen too many wins lost in 10 relief pitches.
