Those weren't exactly rockets that Texas blistered through the Tigers' infield in the first inning Thursday.
They were makeable plays the Tigers didn't make, fulfilling the skepticism surrounding The Grand Experiment -- for one night anyway.
Miguel Cabrera was a statue at third base, doing quite the impressive Brad Stuart impersonation.
Two grounders he should have at least knocked down rolled into leftfield for singles.
If the torment ended then, all could have been more easily forgotten.
But later, Cabrera attempted a difficult force play at second when he was probably better off going to first, and his throw pulled Ramon Santiago off the bag.
