They, um, took it away. Resume life as normal.

Oh, hi there. Didn’t see you come in. Were you actually sitting in our beanbag chair this entire time? Sleeping with your eyes open? That’s quite impressive.
Well, not much is going on, just felt it was necessary to tell you that John Morosi is on the goddamn task of making sense out of a good potential trade with the L’Anaheim Angelos for an every day shortstop, catcher, and relief pitcher. But Morosi made a mistake in saying they would perhaps trade His Tildeness. He meant to say Nate Robertson and Gary Sheffield. These mistakes happen, and it’s out of our forgiving nature that we let such glaring errors slide.
So that’s about it. We’ll be back if we have anything else to say. You want a Perrier or video poker game or .. no? You’re good? Okay then.
Who’s Hot, Who’s Not tonight at Chase Field:
Hot: Cliff Lee
Not: Justin Verlander
I vote we discontinue this feature until further notice.
“…the Tigers have a puncher’s chance of being back in this thing by the end of June. If they can pull of a 7-3 homestand and a pair of 4-2 trips after that, then they’ll have completed a 15-7 stretch and will be 39-42 heading into a stretch of 9 division games in July before the All-Star Break.”
So, it worked out a little bit better than that, no? An 8-2 homestand, 4-2 West Coast swing, and a 5-1 homestand later and our Tigers are above .500 for the first time all year. Standing tall at 41-40 at the halfway point of the season, the sins of May have all but been washed away. There’s been a glut of heroes from Marcus Thames’ amazing home run streak to the return of the Sheff. Eddie Bonine throwing a couple of nice performances and Justin Verlander returning to something resembling his old form. Old friends Joel Zumaya and Fernando Rodney came back and struggled at first, but seem to have settled back down. The Todd Jones Experience blew his first save and with it he almost blew the Tigers shot at returning to .500, only to have the Fat Man come through in the end. (more…)
Awww, My Tiger, BInge is heading off to the DL today with that nasty oblique strain just refusing to get better.
Taking his place will be our 47th different Mud Hen of the year, catcher Dane Sardinha. Sardinha is hitting .206 and has committed FIVE errors thus far. I’m thinking Pudge is not going to be resting much anytime soon. (Ok, probably still tomorrow since it’s a day game following a night game…)
We won’t discuss what happened last night. We just hope the Little Cat has the cure.
