    Anything we get out of Zach Simons is gravy...I'm just glad Grilli's finally gone.

      I just hope that Grilli does as good for the Rockies as he did in the month of April for the Tigers. That 3.29era would sparkle compared to some of the Rockies relievers.

              He'd make a good mop-up guy. That's the only reason his ERA is as low as it is. Check out his numbers with men on or in close games. The man is a choke artist.

                Not only is he a choke artist, but he's delusional as well:

                Grilli, whose father, Steve, was a Tiger in the late ’70s, sounded disappointed and a little bitter.

                “I’m arbitration-eligible,” Grilli said. “There’s several guys here who pretty much can do the same thing as me. Miner’s got a year and a half of doing the same kind of role. (Armando) Galarraga’s doing a heck of a job. He’s got options. I know this business. With Cruceta and all the hype and talk about him, they’re trying to create a roster spot. There’s things happening around here. It’s been on the tip of the tongue since spring training, even this offseason.

                “I won’t be the last. When one move gets made, there’s usually several others that follow.

                “I think I did a good job for what my role is. I know a lot of people might think differently. But to those people, I just say thank you, too, because I’m a bigger person than someone who doesn’t like my eyebrows or the way I pitch.”
                I rolled my eyes so hard when I read this that I sprained them.

                  Well, Tiger fans, you won't have Jason Grilli to kick around anymore.


                  Is the Colorado park still a Hell's Kitchen for pitchers?

                    During one bad outing for Grilli

                    during one particular bad outing for Grilli recently, a buddy of mine and I were joking that Leland should have gone to the mound to take the ball from Grilli and handed him his packed suitcase.

                      I would watch the broadcasts and hear pundits say that he was a good
                      pitcher and I would wonder what they were smoking

                      Hopefully this will start the Turnaround

                        Welcome, Chuck.

                        I skimmed the online Freep this morning and saw one person who doesn't seem to be such a Grilli supporter is Jim Leyland. And Leyland's right, Grilli simply did not pitch well with the Tigers.

                        Guess he should have maintained his eyebrows better.

                          check out what Grilli had to say

                          link

                          Reliever Jason Grilli, released last month after spending the previous three years in the organization, attributes the Tigers' struggles to a lack of cohesion and too many cliques. The Tigers managed to show team unity one game last weekend when they took Edgar Renteria's suggestion and hiked up their socks, even playing music before the game. The Tigers won. Yet instead of repeating the ritual the next day, Ordonez and left fielder Marcus Thames played with their pants low, and the music was off. "It seems like they kind of broke up our team chemistry when they got rid of Sean Casey and good people like that," says Grilli, now with the Rockies. "You wanted guys like that around. You wanted a guy like Inge playing behind you, knowing he would go through a brick wall."


                          ------------------

                          i am glad he is gone, but he sure makes a good point.

                            You know, Grilli might be on to something...i.e. where there's smoke, there is fire..This team especially this year's squad, seemed to be a clichy team, a bunch of players,all with different goals...and when Casey got sent packing,
                            etc...it might have altered the way this team relates and plays ...Leyland
                            is probably hopping mad, due to Grilli violating the clubhouse..i.e. what is said etc in the clubhouse, STAYS in the clubhouse...Question...has LEYLAND lost control of the team, a'la Trammel ? probably not..but unless this team gets it's head outta it's baseball rear end, they could lose 90 games...

                            On the flip, Grilli might just be making something outta nothing....making himself look better than he was in Detroit...

                            I guess draw your own conclusions.....

                            losing today..after winning the night before..scoring 19 runs...

                            this team is a cruel paradox....

                              Grilli is doing OK for the Rockies so far.
