The Detroit Tigers may have just endured the worst stretch of any team in baseball this season. Over a 7-day period, they…
-lost their lead in the A.L. Central
-lost reliever Joakim Soria to injury
-lost starting pitcher Annibal Sanchez to injury
-lost a 19-inning game that decimated their bullpen
-sent Justin Verlander home to Detroit for an MRI, after he felt stiffness in his shoulder
And oh yeah, they lost their bat boy to a horrifying fall last night. Nobody’s safe in the Motor City y’all.
What an excellent description by Fox Sports Detroit announcer Mario Impemba. That sigh was Howard Dean-esque.
