???????????? is starting at shortstop for the Tigers tonight, apparently

Jun 7, 2014, 3:47 PM EDT

Someone will be playing shortstop for the Tigers in tonight’s game against the Red Sox, but they just don’t know who yet. The club posted their lineup for tonight’s game and simply put “????????????” at shortstop in the ninth spot in the lineup.

Via Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports:

No word on if the Tigers have acquired Matthew Lesko.

    ?????????? doesn’t have anything on minor league guy

    • raysfan1 - Jun 7, 2014 at 4:17 PM

      He spelled it wrong, I think. Besides, Who is on first.

    • proudlycanadian - Jun 7, 2014 at 7:59 PM

      Suarez has a new name. GO KITTENS GO!

      • proudlycanadian - Jun 7, 2014 at 9:23 PM

        ??????????? AKA Suarez has a home run, but it is still early.

    regardless the sox are prob gonna lose again. keep losing until it hits double digits, then rip off another 7 game win streak. Then lose ten in a row. Then win 7, and so on and so on.

    Venezuelan to be named later.

      I thought it was the lead singer from “? and The Mysterians”.

        I shed a tear, or 96 for their chances

      • proudlycanadian - Jun 7, 2014 at 5:00 PM

        Sob!

        Oddly, there has never been a Rudy Martinez in organized baseball. The closest is Rubiel Martinez, who played SS for the Indians’ DSL team last season. He is now on their roster on the Restricted List, which is a ? in itself. Fake ID?

        Thanks. All the really important information can be found on HBT.

      You’re back!!!! :)

    • happytwinsfan - Jun 7, 2014 at 6:03 PM

      Good to you see you back. Please don’t stay out like that again without at least calling.

    • proudlycanadian - Jun 7, 2014 at 8:02 PM

      “?” aka Suarez and the kittens have an early lead. Lester against old blue eye. My money is on old blue eye.

    • paperlions - Jun 7, 2014 at 10:07 PM

      I would just like to point out, that I suggest Suarez as the replacement for Iglesias back in March rather than trading for Franklin or signing drew..

        Oh, how I missed you, paper.

      • paperlions - Jun 8, 2014 at 11:17 AM

        Declaring the sky blue are we?

      • historiophiliac - Jun 8, 2014 at 11:19 AM

        Apparently.

  4. Caught Looking - Jun 7, 2014 at 4:06 PM

    Maybe they’ll use the shift all night.

  5. chacochicken - Jun 7, 2014 at 4:08 PM

    My range isn’t what it used to be but I’ll give it a shot. Just to be fair, I’ll take half of a league minimum game check. I can also throw an extra innings knuckleball, eephus, or mid 70’s bean ball.

  6. NatsLady - Jun 7, 2014 at 4:12 PM

    Whoever he is, guess he’s not that great a hitter. He’s got the pitcher’s spot.

  7. pjmitch - Jun 7, 2014 at 4:21 PM

    I’m available. Put me in coach!

  8. bostonfrogs - Jun 7, 2014 at 4:22 PM

    Personally, I like “?????”‘a chances of outperforming Andrew Romine at short.

  9. drewzducks - Jun 7, 2014 at 5:18 PM

    Pleeeez be Stephen Drew.

  10. shanabartels - Jun 7, 2014 at 5:19 PM

    Oh cool, ???????????? is one of my favorite players. A real legend.

    • historiophiliac - Jun 7, 2014 at 5:30 PM

      It’s supposed to be “@#%%$^*^&((#@%!!!”

      Oh, am I the only one who calls him that?

  11. jerze2387 - Jun 7, 2014 at 6:53 PM

    could be a good idea… ?????????? is hitting !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! with ############# HRs and +++++++++++++ RBI

  12. jaysfan64 - Jun 7, 2014 at 7:35 PM

    Omar Vizquel?

  13. frank433 - Jun 7, 2014 at 8:34 PM

    A home run for ????????????’s first career hit.

  14. montrealknowledge - Jun 7, 2014 at 9:24 PM

    Picked him up on my fantasy team, just in time.

  15. weaselpuppy - Jun 8, 2014 at 12:41 AM

    I’d like the Tigers to get a government grant to pay for Jimmy Rollins option year in 2015….

    Suarez had a good night with a homer and a walk. Looked good at SS, too. I really hope he can be the guy for the Tigers the rest of the season.
