All righty then — — Bruce Ron”done” and Mat van Dekker called up. That ought to catapault the Tigers out of the basement.

The problem is not the individuals it is the collective. They have lost faith in each other. They have forgotten how to win, basically. Doesn’t matter if the have momentum on their side or a 5 run lead. They know collectively they will be unable to high-five each other at the end of the game.

They have no way of controlling what the other teams do, especially offensively. The bullpen is a total mess with no sense of direction and devoid of confidence.

They had better start jumping on the phone with other GMs before the good GMs get all the good deals.
