Miguel Cabrera is a monster-disappointment this year. He has provided no offensive presence at all. Every time he comes to the plate, I have almost ZERO confidence that anything will happen. I was expecting so much more.
But then again, the whole roster is underperforming at the plate this year, with the exception of Ordonez & Guillen. We’ll probably have only one allstar this year, and that will be because of the rule where each team must have a representative.
This team is a bust.

That’s a fresh perspective, Chris. I was unaware that you were so disappointed in Cabrera.
June 4, 2008 at 11:36 am
At least he’s spelling Cabrera correctly now.
June 4, 2008 at 11:48 am
Time for everyone else to start misspelling it. A question of balance.

That’s very good news about Zumaya. I hope I was wrong about the difference it could make to have him back. The season will get a lot more interesting, that’s for sure.

Who is this Zumaya you speak of? I remember our President saying something about a kid named Zumala, but that’s it. Anyway, Maggs will be an All Star on merit, not because of the at least one guy per team rule…

I wonder if the Tigers willl explore trading pudge at mid season, since they are going to be too far out to contend?
June 4, 2008 at 1:23 pm
Why not, they’ve already traded the season at mid-Pudge.

Any predictions for today besides the obvious? i.e. 2 GIDP for Rentaria, a walk off loss, and a shutout for the A’s.
June 4, 2008 at 1:49 pm
I called the shutout yesterday, Jeremy, but I’m retracting it. However, that’s the best news I can offer.

How irrelevant the Tigs have become. So much so, I waste time reading here and once in a run scoring outburst by the irrelevant Tigers, posting. If I haven’t said so already, the Tigers are irrelevant and ‘dead to me’…at least until the Wings win or something and Sheed is traded.
June 4, 2008 at 1:58 pm
Wow another post from big D. It’s getting bigger by the minute.
June 4, 2008 at 2:03 pm
Yeah, the A’s pitcher is unhittable at home. So i don’t think it is going to matter today. He had a no-hitter through 7 against the red sox.

“Any predictions for today besides the obvious? i.e. 2 GIDP for Rentaria, a walk off loss, and a shutout for the A’s.”
No GIDP’s for E-Rent today because Leyland benched the piece of garbage for Santiago. Perhaps Leyland is giving him a day off, but he usually does that on Thursday.
If I were Leyland, I would bench Rentarea because of his rather poor play and see if Santiago could do better. And I wouldn’t mind seeing Santiago take the job away from Rentarea as the regular SS. Rentarea’s major-league choke-job last night was unacceptable.

A pox upon you for uncalled for irreverance.
