Opening Day 2009

Tigers vs. Blue Jays at Toronto.
Game time: 7:15 PM Eastern Time (1:15 AM Central European Time).
Pitchers: Justin Verlander vs. Roy Halladay.
Go Tigers!

Final score: Blue Jays 12, Tigers 5.

What a disaster. Verlander got seriously roughed up: 8 earned runs on 8 hits (6 of which went for extra bases) in just 3 and 2/3 innings. That works out to an ERA of 19.64. Not exactly Cy Young type numbers. The Tigers are losing 9 to 1 after 4 innings, it's 2:45 in the morning, and I have six classes tomorrow... good night.

My sympathies...also to the Spartans (although it's hard to complain about making it all the way to the championship game!) Go green!

Of course, there is always a silver lining for me when I see my boy Curtis do well. Maybe just a thin lining.

Just kinduv a deflating kinda day all around in these precincts. . .

(Man, I sure hope Verlander gets his stuff together. . .)

Re: Verlander, that first inning was brutal. Two outs, nobody on, and then a walk. That's how it always begins.

I'm going to be sweating bullets until they get that first win.
