Happy 30th, JV.

Here’s a video card! (from MLive)

Not a whole lot going on, other then games of pepper and intrasquad scrimmages, so here are a few links to keep you going until Rondon gets drilled and TSE demands that we resign Valverde for a logical 1 year salary which is not irrationally based on his positive contributions during the acceptable part of his season last year.

- Can Cabrera get any better? I agree with Octavio Dotel that he could be a better leader. This is the first I’ve heard of a player’s only being called for but ignored after game 2 of the WS. In retrospect, it would have been nice.

- To that end, do you guys remember when we were in the WS? Seems unbelievable considering the disappointment and uncertainty regarding the team and skipper all season long. I mean, we were at it all season on the DTW. Sure as heck did make for a lot of fun.

- John Lowe makes an interesting case for why Dirksie (or is it “Dirksy”? – I heard Avila say that on MLB radio last night) could win a batting title.

- 8:1 odds to win the WS…pretty salty. Tor at 7:1.  BP has Detroit running away with the division. As do I. Also on BP – the Tigers’ depth chart is free of charge (along with San Fran). Perk of winning the pennant. I usually subscribe to BP each year, the content is worth it.

  1. You’ll never hear any Valverde wishes from me. He ranks at the top of the list of types of guys I think we should stay away from. Overpriced specialty pitchers amidst a sea of roster problems is unjustifiable to me and he never should have been here in the first place.

  2. Don’t ask Dotel.

  4. I’ve been selecting games from 2012 to watch semi-randomly, based on game number. Thus I randomly encountered:

    August 5 vs, Indians. Wow. Watch this (again?) and cheer up.

    August 6 vs. Yankees. Wish JV a Happy Birthday by watching this again for the first time. Another wow.

  5. That’s trademark worthy.
