Let's start the second half off with a series win, please.
Francisco Liriano says he was having neck spasms while warming up and, as the game went along, they turned to back spasms. I've never had back spasms, but it doesn't sound fun.
It's Marco Estrada's turn in the rotation. I'm hoping he's figured out what ever was going wrong. In his last start he looked good for 3 innings and then lost it. He's been so good, since coming over in the trade, that I'm willing to suffer through some bad times.
Anibal Sanchez, on the other hand, started the season in the bullpen, had a rough time, but, since being put back in the rotation, he's been every good. In 4 starts, he has a 3.09 ERA. The good news is that he hasn't been pitching late into games, so we are likely to get to face the Tigers' bullpen.
