Today the Tigers (50-53) will try to salvage at least one game in Oakland from the surging Athletics (57-46). Today Jeremy Bonderman (13-6) will take on the team that originally drafted him, and the team he coincidently got his first major league win against. His opposing pitcher today will be Kirk Saarloos (6-6), who is making his first career start versus the Tigers.
Game time is 4:05. No TV coverage in Detroit today.
Also, with the trade deadline approaching, there are no big news of any kind of trades inolving the the Tigers at this point. I suppose we are going to sign Placido to a new contract and just let JJ and White leave in the offseason.
