I was getting jealous of all the reporters and photographers down there in Lakeland taking in baseball and sun and palm trees. So I did the best I could and went to Comerica Park today to take pictures of ice sculptures…Leftover from Tigerfest…Which was a month ago. So stop complaining Wojo if it’s unseasonably cool in Lakeland. (Seriously, I took these pictures today.)

An extension for Guillen is the only item remaining on the Tigers checklist. It is also a popular topic of discussion. This is a bigger topic than I’m going to tackle in a round-up post. Kurt has it covered anyways. I will say that I don’t think Guillen will sign here with the intention of playing first base. Just because he filled in there last year, doesn’t mean that is his likely destination – at least not for the next 3-4 years.
- Inge gets, Inge gives
- George Kell gets in an accident. George has had a rough couple years.
- Rodriguez isn’t slowing down. Barring a pretty major trade, the Tigers will most assuredly pick up Pudge’s option for 2008. It’s a $13 million option with a $5milion buyout. With no replacement in site, and Pudge being still quite productive this is kind of a no-brainer.
