    Kinda like Drummond not scoring in the playoffs? Your sense of humor needs to be tased.

    JV was flirting with a no hitter until the 7th, giving up two consecutive singles.

    Wasn't until today I realized the Astros were moved to the AL. They have a really messed up outfield at their park

    The shape of the field reminds me of the old (real old) Giants stadium in NY. Short left and right field lines and 500+ feet in center. A real bandbox, and the reason Mel Ott hit so many home runs. Remember Willie Mays catch in center on a long drive by Vic Wertz in the World Series?

    Thanks for pointing that out. It flew past me too. Makes a lot of sense and balances it out finally between the leagues.


    As of now, the Tigers' 19 W's is only 1 from being the best in baseball. Our run differential of +52 is tops.

    Our offense is #1 in the league with 5.47 runs/game. Both Cabrera and Fielder are averaging more than 1 RBI per game and both have over 1.000 OPS (on base + slugging).

    Hunter has been a major catalyst as well with one of the league's top averages. Jackson, Infante, Peralta, and Tuiasosopo are all playing great with Dirks surging of late. VMart showing signs of life too.


    And the pitching is ridiculous.

    Verlander: 4 wins, 1.55 ERA
    Sanchez: 3 wins, 1.82 ERA
    Fister: 4 wins, 2.48 ERA
    Scherzer: 4 wins, 3.43 ERA (leads team in K's)
    Porcello: 1 win, 7.52 ERA... but much better lately

    Smyly: 2 wins, 1.35 ERA in long relief role

    Valverde hasn't yet allowed a run this year in 4.0 innings
    Benoit: 1.88 ERA
    Al Al: 2.08 ERA
    Downs: 2.70 ERA in real innings

    Coke, Rondon, Villereal, and Dotel have struggled.



    198 strike outs compared to 45 walks for our starting pitchers on the season.

    I can't ever remember seeing a team with this many low ERA's in the AL this far into the season. I'm sure it's happened, but it must be rare.

    The only real blimp on the season so far was the sweep in Anaheim two weeks ago by the Angels who plastered the Tigers 22-4 in the three game sweep. Other wise the defending AL champs are living up to their praises of the explosive lineup..., the starting pitching is as good as advertised and the relief pitching is finally finding its stride.

    The Tigers have gone 10-2 since the debacle in Anaheim (Angels have since gone 4-10)..

    My thoughts on Iron Man 3.... I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars off the top. Started kind of slow for me, but enjoyed it. I have not watched IM 1 or IM 2 since who knows when but recall that I didn't like IM 2 that well. Good to see both Pepper and the general (Don Cheadle) get to flex their muscles. As with always these Marvel movies there is always one last scene or preview at the end of the credits and the 50 or so people who waited around were not that impressed with it. In other words if you are in hurry to get out of there...no use waiting for it....(spoiler alert)

    Albert Pujols was the N.L. MVP in 2008 and 2009.

    Barry Bonds won the N.L. MVP 4 years in a row (2001, 2002, 2003, 2004). He won it 7 times in total. Next best is 3 (9 guys).

    The last A.L. back-to-back MVP was Frank Thomas in 1993 and 1994.

    The last Detroit Tiger to win back-t0-back MVPs was Hal Newhouser (1944,1945). Who can forget those years?

    Just saw an article that compared the entire Tigers starting pitching this year to last years' Cy Young candidates. Since we are 1/5th of the way through the season, the sample sizes are the same. The gist of it is that our imaginary player would be in the running, but wouldn't win it.

    I saw Hal Newhouser pitch at Briggs Stadium in 1945. My first Tigers game! Against the Yankees and DiMaggio, Keller, Heinrich, Rizzuto, et. al. Greenberg hit a home run, and the Tigers lost 10-8. Memories.
