Wrapping up the winter meetings… In this episode I talk of disappointment with the Matt Joyce trade and why I don’t think Edwin Jackson is the guy to get. I also talk about how James Skelton shouldn’t have been left exposed in the Rule 5 draft. I speculate about whether or not the failed auto […]

Tigers housing rally kitten

08.07.2008 14 comments

Maybe Matt Joyce found a good luck charm in the Tigers batting cage in the form of a kitten. Tigers outfielder Matt Joyce, hearing the tiny black cat whimper, climbed up on a stool and, with batting gloves on to protect his hands, pulled the animal down, before carrying it up the stairs into the […]

29.06.2008 32 comments

Magglio Ordonez hits the disabled list with oblique issues. He joins Gary Sheffield and Brandon Inge to become the 3rd Tiger forced out of action by oblique issues.

Joyce down, Clete up

29.05.2008 20 comments

The Tigers have optioned Matt Joyce back to Toledo and have called up Clete Thomas. I suppose this is because they have the left handed option with Jeff Larish on the roster now to provide some power. And as Jason Beck noted, they want Joyce to play everyday and with Thames getting left field duties, […]
