Thoughts after three innings Royals, Tigers
|Jason Vargas deals against Tigers Monday|
But right now, who would you rather have? I'd say Castellanos, although both have been hitting well lately.
- I didn't mind as much that Eugenio Suarez was bunting for a hit in that spot as if it were a pure sacrifice, but he bunted a very good pitch to hit. I'd rather see the kid keep swinging away while he is on such a roll. Jason Vargas is the ideal pitching matchup for Suarez. He is also an ideal matchup for Rajai Davis. It's not a coincidence Davis clubbed that RBI double off him.
- So far, so good for Justin Verlander. His issues, in my opinion, aren't so much velocity as command of the baseball. It's been pretty good so far.
