Just a couple of quick notes on the eve of the Tigers last home game…
The Tigers should have topped the 2 million mark in attendance tonight. That would mark the first time since 2000 when Comerica Park opened. It will be interesting to see what the season ticket renewal rate is without the All Star incentive. What was most encouraging is that the Tigers drew quite well during July and August – regularly topping 30,000.
The Tigers announced today that they have extended agreements with Erie and West Michigan. Erie will continue to be the Tigers AA club through 2008, and the Whitecaps will be the low A affiliate through 2010.
Earlier this summer the team announced that Oneonta of the NY Penn league would continue to be the Rookie ball affiliate through 2010 as well.
I’ll be heading down to the final game tomorrow with the family. I’m looking forward to it, and hopefully the Tigers can close out the home season with a win.
StorminNorman$ one way to find out... last season his first three starts he gave up a total of only 1 run
Tony de Florida Your right Greene may not be the answer but we know what Sanchez and Pelfrey have given us so far.
Tony de Florida Come on Jud, I can assure you that your attendance will not impact the score. Don't know if they will
not that Greene is necessarily 'the answer', but DET needs to find a solution to Sanchez and Pelfrey... besides the
jud Funny that Avila gives his .500 manager a ringing endorsement just prior to what will by a 1-5 road trip
jud .500 seems like the Tigers goal the past two full years. Once they get there they go on cruise control.
