Game 158: Twins at Tigers

25.09.2007 44 comments

PREGAME: Yorman Bazardo will make his second career start, and like his first it will come against the Twins. He wasn’t dominating by any means, but he held the Twins to 2 runs in 4 2/3 innings on 4 hits and 2 walks. The Tigers will be up against Matt Garza. In his last start […]

Game 157: Twins at Tigers

24.09.2007 56 comments

PREGAME: It’s Nate Robertson taking on Carlos Silva tonight. Nate’s turned in consecutive 7 inning outings. He fanned 5 and walked 3 while allowing one homer in each. One game he allowed 6 hits, the other 5. So for a guy that has vacillated between crappy and good, a brief moment of solid consistency is […]

Bonderman to start Tuesday

23.09.2007 10 comments

Well, the good news is that Jeremy Bonderman’s elbow is feeling fine again and he’ll be able to pitch on Tuesday. I guess I’d prefer he just shut it down for the year, but maybe there is something to going out on a high note, I don’t really know. And that presumes he goes out […]

Game 155: Royals at Tigers

22.09.2007 10 comments

PREGAME: It’s that time of year when you look at a lot of the guys on the roster and you realize that you might be seeing their last home performances with the English ‘D’ on. Case in point is tonight’s starter Kenny Rogers who’s contract is up at the end of this season I really […]

Game 154: Royals at Tigers

21.09.2007 49 comments

PREGAME: The Tigers kick off their last homestand of the season with a couple of rookies doing battle. For the Royals it will be Billy Buckner making his 4th start. Buckner has as many walks has as many walks as strikeouts in games he’s started. But he also hasn’t been hit really hard in his […]

They still like them some Tigers

21.09.2007 2 comments

I thought I’d pick up some tickets for the Tigers this weekend, so I started looking online earlier in the week. It turned out that for the Saturday game it was singles and standing room only. Then I checked StubHub! and you had to pay at least $30 a seat for anything that wasn’t a […]

How I’m coping – or – it’s hard to be a fan

19.09.2007 62 comments

One thing I’ve learned doing this blog is that being a fan of any team is a very personal thing. Fans approach their love for their teams in a myriad of ways, and this is manifested when the teams are at their lowest point. After all, when the team is winning that is when all […]

Game 152: Tigers at Indians

18.09.2007 180 comments

PREGAME: The Tigers get back at if after last night’s tough loss. Fortunately, this team does seem to have a short memory for these types of things. Justin Verlander will do his best to give the team the same kind of chance that Kenny Rogers did last night. Verlander has been awesome his last 4 […]

Game 151: Tigers at Indians

17.09.2007 302 comments

PREGAME: Here we are, the Cleveland series. The last 3 chances for the Tigers to exert their will on the teams they are chasing. I can’t remember being this nervous for a game, maybe game 2 of the ALDS, but even then I’m not sure. I guess I’m nervous because not so much of what […]
