Pardon me, but Don Kelly has no business making this catch. A double from Prince Fielder and a home run off the bat of Alex Avila have the Tigers up 2-0 early in the second, so yeah, maybe one of those afternoons. Stay tuned.

Looks just like the 80s! (Assuming they had ridiculous bro necklaces back then.)

Oh, hello Justin Verlander.

Can we just… maybe… not?

Scuttlebutt

John Lott of the National Post looks into the Romero-Hayhurst “hullabaloo,” while on Twitter it looks like Ricky and Dirk are over it.

Lott also has some key, pre-game tweets, informing us that Adam Lind may not have a 9 game rehab stint after all, now that David Cooper is hurt, that the club may go to a six-man rotation in September, and that JP Arencibia could return in September.

Barry Davis of Sportsnet notes that he doesn’t think the groin injury Colby Rasmus is playing through is a reason for his slump. Um… I sure as fuck hope it is!

Davis also lays this on us: “Just spoke to Cooper. Says spasms are gone and he feels much better but not well enough to risk it by playing today.” To risk WHAT? A prolonged absence of David Cooper???

Gose and Hechavarria in the same lineup! Against Justin Verlander! Good lord!

Lastly, for your between-inning viewing pleasure, here [is where] today’s edition of Getting Blanked [will be, just as soon as it's up!]…
