    Do you guys think they are required to dress real nice when they fly to the next city or do they just do it? I'd be rolling in shorts and sandals.

    Off day tomorrow - probably going straight to dinner and to the club from the airport while the traveling staff checks them and handle sluggage. But the organization probably requires them to look presentable on the plane.

    I believe they once traveled like this, so I'm guessing it's more of a player organized thing to keep themselves entertained.

    So...Anthony Gose has a 35% K-rate right now, and Devon Travis is absolutely destroying everything.

    I'm definitely not going to be mad about this for a long time.

    Verlander just tweeted a pic of a green light. Had an MRI earlier this week.

    This seems like good news.

    Thank god. In a game of fuck/marry/kill with the back end of the Tigers rotation I'm current fucking the fat man, marrying kosher and murdering Shane Greene.

    You guys know we're definitely trading for Cueto at the deadline, right?

    I didn't want to humiliate him.

    In other news, Ryan Perry bumped from Erie to Toledo after 2 appearances. Tweet said he was 93--95 with command and biting slider.

    Weird. They said he was scratched last night for his forearm after taking a direct shot on it on a tipped ball Thurs.

    Hawk commented on it, as he always does: "It's not possible that this guy gets beat up against everybody the way he does against us, or he wouldn't be alive".

    Yes it is, Hawk.

    I like McCann ad a change of pace, but he ain't ready to be a full time catcher. Avila on the shelf is not a good thing.

    And "loose bodies in the knee" sounds like an arthroscope and six weeks.

    I don't like when catchers get their knees messed with, at all. Even arthroscopic surgery can spell long term trouble for a catcher.

    I don't think there is a "long term" for Avila, given his concussions and previous injuries.

    It would appear that Miggy is still really good, and this run of his is coming at the right time as VMart hopefully gets his shit together during this rest.

    On the farm, Buck Farmer has struck out 48 in 44 innings and has a 3:1 K:BB ratio. Obviously he's got MLB experience with the Tigers, but he's 24 and only had ~28 innings above A ball coming into the season (9 with the Tigers, 7 in Toledo and 12 in Erie).

    I wonder if he's becoming a real rotation prospect. His fastball probably sets his ceiling around 4th starter (sits in the low 90s for a righty, supposedly), but his slider and change-up are also supposedly abover average, so maybe he's got #3 potential. Either way, he's probably a cheap replacement for Simon for next year.

    I think Farmer's problem isn't fastball velo as much as fastball movement/location. Last year in the majors, his fastball seemed really straight and often left up in the zone. Seems like people are starting to think he could be at least a back end guy, with possible #3ish qualities if everything hits. Given our financial situation/age moving forward, if we can get a couple starters out of Ziomek/Farmer/Kubitza/VerHagen, that would be a mighty fine result.

    I think fastball straightening can be a result of over-throwing, so hopefully he has more movement when he's not ramped up to MLB Debut levels. But I don't know, I've never seen him pitch.

    I'm glad Ausmus got Price out of there. I think their needs to be some level of respect paid to his pitch count and innings, after Joe Madden unabashedly overused him in his trade year.

    Lobstein to DL with a shoulder issue. To be examined. Farmer to take his spot in the rotation.

    Machado up in the interim to while Iglesias sits for a couple days with his sore knee (no structural issues).

    He's turned it around quite nicely through five, thankfully. He's struck out 6 of the last 7 hitters. I'm with you on his issues, though. It's not like he's had crazy bad luck this year. He's giving up tons of HR and just getting pounded way too often.

    Ausmus left him in to long today - without backing it up statistically, I feel like there have been a few outings where he's really shit the bed after 90 pitches.

    Not a Tigers or baseball fan, but the Avila family are good people. Sucks Alex is having issues with his health.

    When I was playing up until high school on his cousin's team, he would play with us in tournaments and it was obvious he was gonna play in the league and catching him was frightening. Kid was super humble in spite of being the best player on the field in most cases.

    It was a honor to be coached by his grandfather, too, and to have met Tommy Lasorda a few times through the family.

    Just stopping by to humble brag and to let you know you got a great GM up there in Alex SR.

    So Tom Gage is a free agent again

    As part of wide-reaching cutbacks on a national scale at Fox Sports, Fox Sports Detroit's entire roster of sportswriters is being let go on June 30, two sources confirmed to The Detroit News on Saturday night.

    The list of ousted writers at FSD includes: Gage, Dana Wakiji, Dave Hogg, Keith Gave and Dave Dye. Wakiji and Dye previously worked at The News. The five of them account for more than 100 years of sportswriting in Metro Detroit.

    Verlander on his first rehab start today for Toledo. He's probably not going to get through the 3rd on less than 80 pitches because he apparently struggled commanding his fastball and his defense has been bad with multiple misplays. Tiger beat writers saying he's been up as high as 96 on the stadium radar gun, although no clue how accurate that is.

    Better cliffs version:

    Chris Iott ‏@Chris_Iott
    Justin Verlander is done after 79 pitches. Command no bueno. Wasn't helped by his defense, but that outing wasn't stellar.
