Sorry for the lack of updates recently, I've been busy debating with myself which Tiger is more "now" then the others. Sportscenter has dazzled us with commitment to suck in the last 5 years, but as I was wasting away my life watching a "contest" between Serena Williams and Steve Nash I could feel actual rage and hatred seeping into my pure heart. So, I changed the channel to Top 40 awesomely wacky celebrity baby names to regain my chi. By the way, Sheffield won my Gene Kingsale bracket because of his comments toward latin players. Way to go Gary.
Kraig Monroe has done his best Karlos Pena impression so far this season. That impression being play like hot garbage and have people threatening to slash his tires for half a season, and then put up Chris Shelton #'s the other half. Well, atleast that's what I'm planning on. It's pretty dumb to have an average fielding LF hitting .225 with less then 10 HR's at the break. But, as Tiger historians will remind you often, he is tied for the most homeruns in Detroit Tiger history.
The Tigers got 3 with Bawstan before the break. I have a feeling we will sweep them because they are responsible for Fever Pitch and I probably falsely blame them for the phenomenon of girls around the country wearing pink mlb hats and jerseys.
The Tigers have 5 all-stars, including 3 starters. That is 4.5 more then we had the majority of my lifetime. I honestly don't know what I did enjoy more, this or when Robert Fick would be our merciful selection to showcase detroit baseball to a worldwide audience.
Eat em' up Tigers.
