It's only the beginning of the year, but as the season goes on this race is going to be interesting. Indians, Sox, and Tigers all have a chance to win it.
I'll try to post the standings at least once a week or after every important series.
Kitties are overrated. Said it from the beginning.
Can't win with just guys like Miggy, Moose & Verlander.
Good thing we've met some good people who sit around us at the park, four more months of watching this garbage would be tough.
The problem with the Tigers is that they have to start realizing that signing all the big free agents might work for the Yankees every once and awhile, but the Tigers aren't the Yankees. They need pitching and better defense right now.
make things worse for the Kitties, A-Jax placed on the DL.
For the sake of change somebody needs to lose their job. The obvious choice is Lloyd McClendon the hitting coach. The problem is the entire staff except one is made up of old Pirates to whom Leyland is loyal.
Then today Leyland gets run and McClendon takes over. The Tigers have the top of the order up in the 8th. Lead off gets on with a walk then McClendon has the team's hottest hitter, Dirks, try to bunt. He isn't a bunter, never has been, and fails miserably. Plus, if it had been successful Cleveland would have just walked Cabrera and Fielder would have GIDP.
I was against the Fielder signing from the start. First, the team was bad defensively heading into ST and then you add another below average infielder? Second, there's a real good chance his contract is going to be restrictive in the future. The owner has twice already spent big dollars and when it didn't work out he closed the purse the next couple years.
I think it's easy to hate any team that tries to buy their way to championships because most teams cant do that and I guess as a fan that makes me a little jealous.
And its just not how baseball should be done. I was never a fan of Steinbrenner because thats how he operated.
Morneau on fiya..another tater.
