Tough to say if Verlander will be better or worse this season. He looked great at certain times and horrible at others. The walk to Rios really set him back, obviously, and he just lost it from there in the 1st. Then again in the fourth... Had he not walked Rios, where would this game have gone. Toronto's lineup, in my opionion, is tough. no excuses though. Also, having to go against Halladay is not easy. he's one of the top pitchers in baseball. Noone wants to face him.

At least the tigers scored some runs. Nice to see Inge hit the hard. Cabrera was 2-4, Ordonez was 2-4, Granderson with a dinger.

Overall, i like the balance of our lineup much better this year. Hopefully we can salvage a series split. Hell, if we win 1 game we'll be in better shape than last year.

i think it was one game.. and thats it.. give it a few more outting and see where he is at then we can pass judgement on him.

Sabathia looked like garbage yesterday too, but you know hell turn it on and pitch to his capabilities. I think Verlander will be fine. It was 1 game

I agree. Not only was CC bad but so was Cliff Lee and Lincecum.Its early.Verlander is clocking high 90's. If he was low 90's and not finding the plate maybe we worry.

Blame last night on Jim Leyland.

i was pissed too.. but as much as i was mad about the game.. there are still 160 games left.. who knows what happens.. maybe Leyland realizes that Lyon has some major issues and stays away from him in clutch situations.. who knows.. i just know this bullpen has got major issues..

Why have the tigers never made a push for a good RP??? I don't get it. It's like this ball club doesn't want help after the starter is off the mound. DD needs to get us something

Agreed man, just because we struggled last season doesn't mean we can make assumptions after a few games. Now, if we are 80 more games down the road and struggling to maintain a .500 level then yes, we can start calling for a firesale, but before then I am going to hope for the best. Give it some time, we're gonna be fine
