Open Thread: 8/12/05 Tigers @ Royals


Jason Johnson (7-9, 4.06) vs. Jose Lima (4-10, 6.84) tonight at 8:10 in Kansas City.

It's a dark time in Tiger-land. The players are upset. It's in the news. Fans and media are agitating for the manager's head. People are starting to question whether anyone on this team is very good. No one is hitting, except perhaps Rondell White. No one in the bullpen seems reliable. Everyone misses Kyle Farnsworth, conveniently forgetting that he isn't even pitching now for his current team.

I don't know much, but I know that if the Tigers can't get well against Jose Lima, even if he's pitched reasonably well over the last month, it's going to be a long, dark slump.

Prediction: Tigers 13, Royals 4. You?
