Yes...listening on radio and as soon as he got to 2-0 on first hitter just knew this wasn't the Balfour that shows up every once in a while and just paints the black with darts, like he did Sat vs. O's. This was wild, laboring Balfour who shows up for most games...think that makes 20 walks now on the season. And there were at least 3 games I recall offhand where he came thisclose to giving up walkoff HR, 2 were in consecutive games vs. CHW. He's not a terrible closer, but he's probably done in Oakland after this year.
Normally you'd be ecstatic taking 3/4 from the Tigers, but what a miserable way to not get the sweep.
