Zumaya Ready for Some Light Tossing

Posted by Bob Biscigliano

Some good news came out of Detroit tonight. Joel Zumaya is apparently ahead of schedule and ready to start some light tossing after he ruptured a tendon in one of his throwing fingers. Zumaya, who was expected to miss up to 3 months, will begin a light throwing program that will start off with him throwing whimpy 90 mph changeups and end up with him throwing his video game type super fastballs that probably will reach 110 mph. The Tigers can absolutely NOT wait for him to return. Currently, the Tigers bullpen seems to be a compilation of the best pitchers from 2003. Anyone who knew the 2003 Tigers, Nate Cornejo and Steve Sparks were pretty much our best pitchers. One had less body hair than a 10 year old boy and the other threw slower than me. Both incompatible for a playoff contending team. This year the Tigers are counting on names such as Seay, Byrdak, Durbin, here comes the McBride, Capellan like a fellin, Dog Doody La Cruz and Miner-leaguer-for-life' to carry the load; all while Fernando Rodney pulls his head out of his ass on the DL (aka: hide me here because I'm dogshit right now) and Zumaya gets healthy. Maybe I'm being too hard on the young bullpen but it's getting prety redundant watching them blow games night after night. However, maybe I should point the finger at the offense for tonight's disappointing loss. After all, they blew a huge opportunity in the 10th by not capitalizing with the bases loaded and only 1 out. Nonetheless, some getting better needs to be in order.

Not a really good post. It's actually a terrible post. Jared Smith would not be proud of my negative attitude. It's about as disturbing as CJ Rush's facebook picture.

PS- Betancourt.... throw the fricking ball! A 20 second balk call should never be called. I wish Brandon Inge wasn't using a wiffle ball bat so he could have hit that 3-2 cock shot out of the ball park.

The gambler vs. Westbrook is next
