07:15 AM ET 08.16 | With Jose Iglesias, it's not about the box score. It's Iglesias' glove that can change games. It's his ability to track down ground balls, and to make throws as dazzling as the range he displays in grabbing those grounders, that sets him apart from the shortstop crowd and brings him, even at this point, to the level of elite. Iglesias made a difference in Thursday's game. To what extent is difficult to say. ... Detroit, if it makes the postseason, will have a brand of defender as special as the collective luster of its starting pitching. It will have a fielder and an arm that can blow up would-be rallies that otherwise can sabotage that good starting pitching, as easily could have been the case Thursday.

Tigers is spelled wrong.

An incomprehensible trade by the Red Sox. It will be amusing if the Sox and Tigers meet in the playoffs and the difference in the outcome is the play of Iglesias v. Drew.

Yeah I noticed that too. T - I - G - R - E - S.
Is that the Spanish spelling or what?

Latin American night at Comerica Park. Too lazy to do the slightest bit of research when pointing out potential errors is so much easier?

No, I'm sure he caught it and wondered why Latins are getting special treatment.............was it also groundskeeper night as well?

It would be difficult to be much more offensive than that. About the norm from a Philly fan. You just keep living up to everyone's expectations.

Iglesias played 3B on the Sox when Drew was healthy.

Amusing, yes. But not likely.

Aryans originated in the Indus Valley region, not Germany. In other words, South-Central Asians.
