Ticket hiccups, injuries, and more previews

Another link round-up while I watch Lost and work on my Tiger preview…

Ticket snafu

Things are kinda hectic for the Tigers ticket department about now. A problem with the printer has season ticket shipments coming at the last minute. Tickets are just starting to arrive today, but the club expects everybody to have their tickets by Friday. Extended box office hours have been created to help with any problems that crop up.

Now if you’re not a season ticket holder, you probably had to get your opening day tickets from a broker. It could be tricky to get those tickets in time for Monday.


Indians starter CC Sabathia took a line drive off his forearm today. X-rays came back negative so if he misses time it probably won’t be for very long. But in what looks to be a tight AL Central, all absences of frontline players could be significant.

Meanwhile, the Tigers are dealing with an injury of their own. Vance Wilson had an MRI on his elbow.

    It’s a matter of necessity really. I can’t take time off to watch TV or the magic and wonder that is DTW wouldn’t happen 🙂

    But I cheat. I have a DVR and find myself replaying pieces 4 or 5 times an episode if I’m not fully paying attention.

    And yes, very interesting episode last night, but it didn’t really move the story along much.

    One thing the ticket snafu is doing is limiting scalping on the internet for Opening Day. Maybe this was intentional.
