Thoughts after 2 innings Tigers, Twins opening day

Phil Hughes fastball is perfect velocity for the Tigers, 88 mph to 91 mph, and they are taking full advantage of it. His pitches are flat, too, and catching the heart of the plate.
- J.D, Martinez has incredible power. Not many right-handed hitters are going to drive it over the big wall in right-center at Comerica Park, especially on a 52-degree day. That was a bomb.
- Alex Avila is at his worst when he is pull happy. He is at is best when he hits the ball where it is pitched. Thing is, he does have power to drive the ball the other way. His home run was a very good sign.
- David Price has such good command. It's a joy to watch him pitch. Good first two innings for him.
