One of the biggest talking points of the offseason was the improvements the Tigers made to their defense, especially in the infield. Unfortunately, things got off to a shaky start on Opening Day. First, Torii Hunter dropped a routine fly ball in the second inning.
Next, shortstop Alex Gonzalez did not alleviate fans' fears of his ability to replace Jose Iglesias when he looked Jhonny Peralta-esque on a ground ball to his right in the fourth inning.
Finally, Gonzalez bobbled a ground ball that ultimately led to the Royals' third run of the game.
Fortunately, Gonzalez atoned for his mistakes with a pair of clutch RBI hits later in the game.
BONUS: Then Nick Castellanos did this.
tomorrow Wednesday, kid.
