    Re: Detroit Tigers, Volume 1 - The Lou Whitaker version

    Anyone remember those Snickers "Not going anywhere for a while?" commercials?

    Apparently we're not potty-trained either. We've whizzed in our shorts nearly every time we've had opportunities.

    Someone from the Tribe is about to get tossed. They do not like his low strike zone.

    It would have been nice if Santiago had left his bat in the clubhouse.

    It would be nice if we didn't leave our bats in the clubhouse.

    Fister Roboto vs. Masterton becomes Below vs. Durbin. Probably not a terrible for the Tigers.

    Bronco pretty much sums up my feelings. I think Jimmy is done after next season.

    Rain delay in Cleveland. They showed a shot of the video board during the delay, and they're showing the Bugs Bunny cartoon where they show the conga line around the bases. Nice.
    Gotta love the classics!

    I am not a big Leyland advocate- I think there is talent out there that can manage today's game better and get more out of his players. DD has to decide after next year who that may be and act on it or this franchise will be stuck in the same gear. Leyland hasn't proven a thing past 2006 (and choked away the division title then too.) I do think he is hamstrung by the limited personnel he has or will have (Guillen, Ordonez, Raburn and Inge will all be memories after this season maybe) and the talent pool he has in the minors. If DD doesn't make a splash in FA or trades in the off season, look for more slightly above .500 ball from this franchise.
    I think Leyland is probably done after next season - as in retirement.

    I agree that some of Leyland's moves make me scream (like keeping the order the same when giving a normal starter a day off), but they do play well, and fundamentally are sound for what players we have. I'm sure there's some managers out there that would be better, but like Dombrowski, I'm happy with the devil I know.

    Now, of course, if the Tigers **** the bed against Cleveland, then the extensions would be terrible.

    I don't mind either. Dombrowski is likely better than anything they could find to replace him with, and Leyland likely comes along with the package.

    Dombrowski extended through 2015, Leyland through next season.

    Just one of those games where we needed better pitching. V-mart's absence is painfully obvious to the lineup, the man has been money this season. I also think they rally in the 8th inning if Peralta isn't thrown out at third on a perfect play. They are 8-4 this season against KC, with 9 or 10 of those games being settled by one run.

    Weather delay, and one of the grounds crew almost got run over by the tarp. Twice.

    They may not make it through this half-inning. It's getting downright evil out there.

    You know, if Cabrera ran the ****ing bases hard, he would have been safe at 2nd.
