The Tigers, Victor Martinez and what to do
The club has called up outfielder Tyler Collins from Toledo. Hopefully it is to put VMart on the DL.
The Tigers are playing reasonably well right now. Their lack of left-handed hitting hasn't hurt them yet. Certainly, at this point, VMart isn't that answer for the Tigers in that regard anyway because of his knee. But he could be later, if he were to rest his knee, get it right and be ready for the long run.
Sometimes discretion is the better part of valor. This is one of those examples. A very, very obvious one.
My thoughts on the Tigers' 3-2 loss to Milwaukee Monday:
My column. Matthew Stafford is finally "excuse proof." Time for him to deliver: http://www.theoaklandpress.com/sports/20150515/pat-caputo-detroit-lions-have-made-it-as-excuse-proof-as-possible-for-qb-matthew-stafford
