They don’t care who my Tiger is anymore

News out of Comerica Park is that the Who’s Your Tiger campaign has come to an end. It had been 3 years and they probably got more mileage out of it than could have been expected. But I’ll kind of miss it. The campaign and the resurgence of the franchise went hand in hand. As the team became successful it was a way for fans to identify with Tigers and was pretty damn effective. Between Who’s Your Tiger, Hockeytown, and Going to Work, Detroit sports teams have done a nice job of latching on to their fans. Do you believe in now?

  1. No, I don’t believe in now, but you’re right about the other three. And by the way, I enjoy the fact that one of the related articles is “Why is Jose Mesa still a Tiger?” The eternal question.

  2. I’m wondering if they’ll go with “Who is not your front office personnel?”

    That one is gonna take me a while to decide. So many good candidates.

  3. “Don’t forget the Detroit Shock’s campaign: “Have you ever heard of the WNBA?””

    But is haviing this minor skill worth being so unattractive? That’s for the fan to decide.

    I kid, I kid…

  4. That’s okay, they can stop the campaign, but they can’t stop my love for Carlos Guillen. Or my “B” Tiger, Curtis Granderson. 🙂

  5. So, click on the link. What’s the significance of 2009 in terms of the season ticket motif and why would that be particularly relevant to a baseball card collector?

  6. And to Mark: that’s why she commands a salary of $7,000 A YEAR. These gals sure do make it look difficult.

  7. Looks like Khalil Greene is going to St. Louis. If Julio Lugo ends up here, I do believe i’ll snap.

  8. Chris,

    I have a feeling that the look of the Tigers will change quite a bit next week. I think Magglio an Polanco will be shopped at the Winter meetings. Nobody out there makes sense for the Tigers at SS and they have too many other holes to fill.

  9. hang on there, Tigercub. from mlbtraderumors:

    12:14pm: Dejan Kovacevic talked to Pirates president Frank Coonelly, who said Wilson has not been traded. The Tigers apparently made an interesting offer last night for Wilson, but the Dodgers remain in the mix. Wilson would have to approve a trade to the Tigers, and he and his agent haven’t been informed of anything.

    Frankly, I am a little bit scared what an “interesting offer” is. DD has been swinging and missing a bit lately.
