The Good News:
Dreamboat Rick Porcello generally looked pretty good in his major league debut. 5 plus innings. 9 hits. 4 earned runs. 4 strikeouts. Not overwhelming numbers to be sure, but the kid looked really good for four innings. He’s got a future in this town, I tells ya.
The Son of Grander continued his solid start with another homer in a 2/5 performance.
Adam Everett got his first hit – and for extra bases at that!
The Bad News:
Blue Jays Rookie Dreamboat Ricky Romero looked even better. 6 innings. 7 hits. 2 earned runs. 5 strikeouts. If this were the old AL East, I’d say we’d have a burgeoning rivalry here.
Aaron Freaking Hill went yard again.
The Blue Jays supposedly worsening offense (looking at you, Iracane) looked good once again vs. Tigers pitching. But we’ve got a lot to look forward to with the home opener: (more…)

It took all of two games for us to introduce you to a concept that we were hoping to avoid. The Brandon Lyon OverWhelming Ninth, henceforth to be known as B.L.O.W.N. – it looks like this:
Thankfully, BInge was there to rescue the Tigers in the top of the ninth against B.J. Ryan. (more…)
To a couple Toronto Blue Jays fans, for doing their best Tie Domi impersonation by trying to hit Josh Anderson with flying fastballs. Fortunately, because they were drunk and not David Wells, none of them connected.
But I will give them intelligence points for not trying such foolish drinky-toss against His Tildeness. Remember the powder keg that began with the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand? This would have been worse.
I am also deeply disappointed in that I didn’t think of this idea until now, wherein I would dress up as a Jays fan and continue to hurl flotsam and Winnipeg Jetsam into the field of play after the PA announcer threatened a forfeit. Maybe next time.

Did you think it was possible that the Tigers could score five runs off of Roy Halladay and still manage to get their ass kicked? Of course you did! It helps when this guy is your starting pitcher:
The Big Tilde went 2/4 with a run scored, the Son of Grander went yard and so did Brandon Inge. The bats weren’t bad tonight at all considering they were facing one of the best starters in the league. Team Venezuela had a strong regular season debut in the middle of the lineup, and the Tiggers need that kind of production this year if they’re going to have a shot at winning the Central. Really, all that’s inexcusable is giving up 12 runs to the Blue Jays.
Edwin Jackson makes his regular season debut for the Tigers tomorrow. Here’s to a better result this time tomorrow.
