Let’s start with what remains the most pressing question other than Why is Brandon Inge still a Tiger? and that is, who will be pitching on April 15th in the D against the Pale Hose? Due to a silly opening weekend where the Tigers play 3 games in 5 days, I’m guessing that April 15th will be the first day for the 5th spot in the rotation. Future rotation guys Turner or Oliver? Maybe Duane Below gets a shot at starting, or Adam Wilk. Or could it be Drew Smyly? (pronounced “smy-ly”) DD is all smiles these days and everyone’s got a shot.
The Tigers’ international scouts are working overtime these days as they remain in the running for Cespedes while finding time to ink a 16 year old Dominican for $280k.
Scott Boras called the Tigers “smart” and said the organization’s intellect was “ahead of the curve.” That’s a lot like the IRS sending you a thank you note which says “thanks for being a good citizen.”
The new Verlander led MLB2k12 commercial is out, and it’s awful. Never mind the “perfect game” dialogue while the screen shows two runners on.
