I don’t usually like to speculate because speculating usually leaves you feeling stupid. Delmon Young’s arrest for example; Delmon Young speculated that drinking wouldn’t lead to trouble, since it had never lead to trouble before. Today, I’m sure that drinking seems like a very bad idea to Young – not only do you have to […]
Posting this early as I may get busy a little later, but Delmon Young is not in the lineup tonight. Neither is Andy Dirks but I assume that for some reason they feel he can assist off the bench, like Don Kelly is supposed to. Wait. Don Kelly is batting fifth?
Apparently the Tigers 1-6 home stand was far more draining on Delmon Young, who went o-for-10 in the series, than we expected, as he was arrested in front of a Midtown Hotel at 2:40 a.m. for third degree assault and had to be taken to the hospital first to “sober up”. UPDATE: He was arrested […]
There could be a lot of accurate references to Clue in this situation. You could add specific Mariner names: Justin Smoak, Jesus Montero, Alex Liddi, Dustin Ackley, Ichiro Suzuki, Michael Saunders, and even Kyle Seager as the actual murders – all of them had a big game at one point – if you wanted to. […]
Last time I broke out this photo, Rick Porcello pitched 8.1 innings of awesome baseball. I’m not superstitious or anything.
Kind of surprising here, not that Weber pitched horribly – he didn’t pitch all that lights out either – but the 27-year-old 6’2, 205lb right hander has been returned to Triple-A Toledo and exchanged for a much larger, 6’6, 200lb right hander, Luke Putkonen. All this will happen before today’s 1PM game against the Seattle […]
As Josh mentioned in passing in the recap, Adam Wilk has been issued a quick bus ticket back to Toledo after suffering severe whiplash on Wednesday night against the Seattle Mariners. Wilk allowed 10 earned runs on 21 hits in his 11 innings spanning three starts in place of the injured Douglas Fister, which is […]
What the Detroit Tigers see when they look at the Seattle Mariners are a bunch of baseball bruisers; juggernauts who, if the Tigers are lucky to beat, are the only thing stopping them from being legitimate playoff contenders. What the Tigers have proved these past two games is that they are obviously not ready for […]
Adam Wilk’s eyes could scare even the likes of Miguel Cabrera. Lineups and comments after the break.
Good morning. When I woke up today I felt like I needed to write a letter to you explaining why there’s no reason to panic about the Tigers. I also felt like I needed an Egg McMuffin. I don’t know why I felt like I needed an Egg McMuffin partly because I don’t even care […]
