4/16 4:10 Tigers @ Royals


Recommended Posts

Baddoo needs some time in Toledo to work things out (like our other Rule 5er, Reyes).  Nothing wrong with that, he's raw.    They don't need to send a position player down until Mize's start date, so do it then.    Hill probably just suffered another injury while getting a haircut or something, so we'll have to rely on Cameron and see if he's got anything, but we need more defensive confidence in CF.   I don't mind Reyes starting, I like him, he's improved.      In my opinion, we had 4 errors last night, Castro's counted, but Candy had one, the play at first base where Torkelson didn't cover, should have been an out, Baddoo's misplay......sure the wall was close, but should have been a catch.  If anything, Castro's was the toughest to call an error because I don't think he throws him out on that play.  

We need a lineup shuffle.      I am assuming Baez is back today.     

My shuffle today would be

Meadows, lf
Schoop, 2b
Baez, ss
Miggy, dh
Tork, 1b
Haase, c
Candelario, 2b
Reyes, rf
Cameron, cf

Just try something, anything different right now.   Miggy & Tork are heating up and Meadows is getting on base.  Schoop is always a slow starter, but he seems to be better hitting in the 2 slot.    Candelario is a rally-killer right now.   I know he'll get better, but I am pretty sour on him right now.     Don't Madden things up by overthinking it.  Meadows plays every day until it becomes obvious he can't hit lefties.....

Can't wait to see if Manning follows up the last start with another good one.
