Thoughts after 3 innings Tigers, Yankees Tuesday

- So David Price hasn't proven to be unhittable. It's not the Tigers' biggest issue. It's their offense. It is very spotty. So they beat up on the Rockies pitching staff. Everybody has lately. They need to score more runs.
- For a pitcher of his caliber, Price does give up his share of home runs ,especially this year. Brian McCann's homer was the 21st allowed by Price this season, just one shy of his career high.
- Price has really good control. You see how the Yankees, who have seen him a lot, have taken advantage of it. They are first-pitch swinging.
- That's why you don't bunt with early in a 1-1 game, especially with one of your better hitters. It almost played right into the hands of the Tigers and Price. The Yankees got away with it when Jacoby Ellsbury clubbed a double. But the run would have scored anyway, regardless of the bunt.

My column. Why, like the Tigers collectively, David Price has a lot to prove: http://www.theoaklandpress.com/sports/20140804/like-the-detroit-tigers-collectively-david-price-still-has-much-to-prove-pat-caputo-says
