I'm glad someone finally started one of these threads. There's not much discussion around here.

Good win today. I missed the middle innings but started watching right when Grandy hit the HR. He's gonna be hitting a lot of them this year.

Ya i will try to start them at the beginning of each series, but i cant make people post on here. So hopefully more people get on here. I missed the whole game as well, but im glad we finally got back in the win column.

great game today, tigers really deserved to win the game after all that hitting we managed to get going, indians did do well, but obviously it wasn't enough to out slug us. i also agree, we need more people talking around here, lets try to get an official series thread for every series starting on this one, boards like the yankees and red sox make me jealous =(

I think if you do it all the time some people will catch on. I was gonna do it but figured no one would post.

Yeah I am too. It was looking bad there for awhile. I couldn't believe Everett hitting the grand slam, it was great. Good to get the W over a division foe too.

Verlander's velocity is down a little but as long as he can spot his pitches and get some more movement I'm good.

Brandon Inge! 1-0

Brandon Inge is looking like he is going to be hitting like this all year. Many people have thier doubts, but I think he can keep it up. Now lets get some more offense and break this game open.

9 K's through 4 innings for Verlander. AMAZING!!!

Yeah Inge is impressing. He's not gonna hit 319 or whatever he's hitting now but he's gonna be good this year. What I like is it seems like not just trying to hit things as hard as he can. On that HR swing he didn't look like he overswung he tried to put it in play. In the past he's overswung a lot. Maybe he does it a little still but no as much as last year.

Verlanders velocity is increasing as the game goes on which is weird. He's becoming more of a strikeout pitcher than in years past too.

Ya verlander's velocity always seems to increase as he starts to do better, when he is in the zone he doesnt get worn out.

Verlander was bringing it. 101 on one pitch and 99 on the others with a 115 pitch count. I was kinda questioning the decision to load the bases but it worked out. He's likely done but he pitched great today.

Now we just need some runs.

Great win for the Tigers. Verlander pitched great. The offense had alot of hits couldnt cash in on alot, but did enough to get the job done. 3 hits for Cabrera. Now we just need to get much more consistent.
