An excellent piece by Beck around the Tigers impact on the region. I'm not big on the "the region really needs this, take pity on us" angle to sports that popped up around the Final 4 and Stanley Cup playoffs. This article didn't go all the way down that path thankfully. But I did love reading about the awareness on the part of the players and the role they play this summer. I think the Tigers do have quite a few "good guys." This comes from the way they conduct themselves at the park and around fans and a few brief personal encounters I've had. It could be crap, but I believe it. If the Tigers can do anything down the stretch the potential for the mutual lovefest that we experienced on a Saturday night against the Yankees in 2006 could come tumbling back – and boy would it be welcomed.
I wonderfully in depth look at the ramifications of offering or not offering Placido Polanco arbitration. I think if he's a type b you offer him, type a and it gets really fuzzy. I still think many of the Tigers decisions will come down to how deep they play into October (and the $$ that comes with that).
