Does it feel over to the rest of you? I know the numbers say the Tigers are “still in it”, but after this past weekend, it all feels kind of lost. The brief glimmer of “well, maybe the trade for Professor Farnsworth (I’m not l33t-ing it out after yesterday) will help the pen” has faded. The “Holy Shit! Look At That Lineup!” shine went away a while back, and now it’s hard to believe it was ever there at all. Now, here we are. Back under .500 and with three games at the Cell awaiting. When you look back and realize how close things are and how close to making the move the Tigers have been so many times this year, it’s all you can do to not drink and drink a lot.
Through it all though, our hero has remained constant. The Big Tilde is tied for 3rd in the batting race with Milton Bradley, hitting .320 with 14 dingers and 65 RBI. So, at least we’ve got that going for us. Thank you, Big Tilde – without you, all would be lost over here.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be over here listening to the Smiths the rest of the night.
