Matchup/Game Thread Game # 77 at Tigers

Wandy Rodriguez Zach Miner
8 - 4, 4.45 3 - 1, 2.08

Gee, I wonder if the Panglossian robe will fit? It's rare that I can be accused of blind optimism; usually I'm the one guilty of being a little too pessimistic.

But after last night's win, one I called in my exhausted delirium, "m***f***ing epic," it seems that I am in the minority in finding the 13-inning victory, after the bullpen meltdowns and the RISPs in extras, a positive.

I believe saylinara may be in my camp, but several nameless crawfish and the inimitable littlevisigoth saw nothing but negatives, despite the win.

I was so focussed on picking up that second game in six days on the Cardinals by hook or by crook. Way I figure, we got it.

Case closed.

I'm happy, even if I've been checking the official site all day, half-expecting some kind of "announcement" about our closer.

I've said it before and I'll say it again I'm sure: I could be wrong. But if we go out and take two of three from Los Tigres at Comerica, you'll know why. . . .

Nice early start for those of us on the East Coast who got to sleep at approximately 1:30 AM . . . . let no-one say there are no baseball gods.
