The Astros tied a MLB record tonight when they hit 5 home runs in one inning

against Boston
They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

Eduardo Rodriguez leaves in the 1st inning with an injury.  2nd time this week that has happened to a Tigers' starter.  Assuming he goes on the IL, that means 4/5 of their projected starting rotation, plus one guy they called up as an injury replacement, are on the IL, along with 3 of their 5 projected opening day OFs

Thats bad news

Astros starter Monday (forgot name) went to cover 1st on a ground ball and pulled a hamstring

what strange way to get hurt (not sure how bad it is)

so now the Astros are on a 5 day rotation

On the spectrum of baseball injuries go, that's only a 4.  At least he didn't burn himself with an iron, or suffer a career ending Guitar Hero injury

Tigers have not won a game when allowing more than 2 runs since Opening Day

I watched the Tigers pay a series against Houston recently

My view of them is they are very good defensively and have a respectful hitting line up 

Their main challenge seems to me to be their bull pen corp

Once you get past the starter late in the game they just really struggle 

but its early and things could turn around for them

It's actually the exact opposite.

They have the 2nd best bullpen in the AL, both in terms of ERA and WHIP.  But they have the 3rd worst defensive rating, and dead last in runs scored, HRs, and are the only team in the AL with a negative offensive WAR.  Meaning that if you replaced their entire lineup with replacement level minor leaguers, they would be expected to improve

My observations were from the one series I saw

The Pirates won a game without getting a hit.  
THAT'S how bad the Reds are this year.

Tigers starter has left in the 4th inning due to injury on 2 of the last 3 days.  If both head to the IL, that would be 8 starting pitchers on the IL.  And yet, the problem remains the offense

Of all calls in sports that would be easy to automate, these should be at the top
