Today Buck Farmer takes his turn at trying to keep the Blue Jays in the yard. This lineup is truly potent, as opposed to the “potent” Tigers offense that Rod Allen is always talking about. The Tigers have leadoff hitters who can’t get on base and a cleanup hitter who can’t hit in runs, but hey, other than that they are fine. When David Price made his last start fort the Tigers...
