PREGAME: It’s that time of year when you look at a lot of the guys on the roster and you realize that you might be seeing their last home performances with the English ‘D’ on. Case in point is tonight’s starter Kenny Rogers who’s contract is up at the end of this season I really do think the Tigers will bring him back for a one year deal, because quite frankly they need the starting pitching depth. But you never know.
Another guy who is questionable to come back, Pudge Rodriguez, is in line to move into 3rd place on the all time games caught list as he tied Gary Carter with last night’s game.
Ono the other side, there is a Kansas City team that has assembled some young talent, and players that we’ll be seeing in Royal blue for awhile. One of those may be Kyle Davies, who the Royals acquired at the trade deadline for Octavio Dotel. Davies has struck out a batter an inning since coming to the Royals, but he also walks a batter every other inning and has allowed 8 homers in 41 Royal innings.
I’ll be there tonight, and I’ll probably be tired. It’s “sports day” for my 6 year old son and we’re doing both the Michigan-Penn State game and the Tigers game. We’ll miss part of at least one of the games, but I’m still looking forward to it.
