I care more about Manning’s performance the rest of the year than any other Tiger, apart from maybe Torkelson. 

I mean I'll be pulling for Manning but I just don't see anything special in him now. Ordinary stuff, sub par command, inconsistent and no plus pitches. At this point I have much more faith in Reese Olson becoming legit than Manning. To me Manning is a back end starter at best that needs BABIP luck to succeed.

Manning is frustrating because when the fastball is there, his stuff does play, but I don't get why a young healthy guy has 3-4 mph just disappear from his FB from start to start.

Doesn't matter who the manager or GM, it seems like there is one player every year that the Tiger brain trust falls in love with for totally unexplained reasons. This year it's Maton.

The bat improved after he was sent down but he should not be playing third. I don't get why they don't swap him and Ibanez but I'm not a chess master.

LOL - good thing Ibanez was where he was!

That was 96 right at the bottom of the zone but down the middle. Low is good but keep it out of the middle.
