Thoughts on a 4-0 Rangers loss

Tigers 4, Rangers 0

Tigers 4, Rangers 0

  • See that picture up there?  The one with Jeff Banister and the umpire?  I'm fascinated by this picture.  Banister looks especially like a T-1000, and is doing like this double pistol thing with his hands, but while being all super serious like.  And the umpire is doing a weird thing with his hands, and you can't tell who they are looking at.
  • That picture is more interesting than talking about the game, I think.
  • I've fallen down a YouTube hole, incidentally, of Norm MacDonald on Letterman clips.  Norm MacDonald is an underappreciated comedian.
  • Norm MacDonald clips are also more interesting than talking about the game, I think.
  • Martin Perez did a pretty decent job of limiting the damage against him tonight, I guess, given how off his command was.  Just 3 runs in 5 IP I guess was sort of a moral victory.
  • And hey, the Rangers didn't get no hit.
  • I initially typed that the Rangers didn't get shut out, but that's incorrect.  I was distracted by listening to a clip of Norm MacDonald talking about Oscar Pistorius.
  • At least no one got hurt.
  • If you want to take a positive from tonight, go check out the Frisco box score.  Connor Sadzeck, working his way back from Tommy John surgery, threw 6 innings against the Tulsa Drillers, didn't give up a hit, and walked just two.  Sadzeck was in the same general group as Alec Asher and Jerad Eickhoff prior to being diagnosed with a torn UCL prior to the 2014 season.  He's spent much of this season rehabbing and pitching in limited stints, but he's starting to look like the guy who was a top 20 prospect in the organization pre-injury.  Someone to keep an eye on next year.
  • Man, games in Detroit always seem to be kind of crappy.
