I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
Thought I would open a thread as the Tigers finish the season with a three-game series in Miami tonight.
- The Tigers are within one game of the A's for home-field advantage in the ALDS
- Martinez will probably be catching
- Will Cabrera start?
It appears the Tigs are involved in a 3 way trade, Avi Garcia goes to Chitown, Peavy goes to Boston, and Jose Iglasias comes to Detroit, per Danny Knobler on Twitter (among others). Iglacias can play SS, 2B, 3B and is hitting 330 in 200+ at bats in the Bigs. Locked in for a while, until 2019.
EDIT: appears Brayan Villarreal is also included, going to Boston
Side note - AP reports Biogenesis suspensions will be announced on Friday, Peralta to accept it.
my bad, not supposed to be a diary
So they missed the tag on Hunter going back to first on the sacrifice fly by Cabrera in the 2nd, but I thought the first baseman was on the bag, so Hunter should have been doubled off as he left first before the outfielder caught the ball. Am I missing something?
In case you missed it, quite a rare and funny play happened in the Tigers-Indians game tonight. Nick Swisher got caught not running out a grounder down the line and payed the price in a closely contested game.
In case you were living under a rock, or just don't like baseball, you probably haven't noticed that Miguel Cabrera is on quite a hot streak right now. This front page article on fangraphs shows just how ridiculously locked in this guy is right now.
So little time, so much to watch!
There's Michigan @ Nebraska Softball at 2 (EDT), followed by U of M @ IU Baseball at 4:30.
NFL Draft Coverage all day on ESPN and The NFL Network (Day 3 of the draft, I believe, starts at noon), Tigers vs. Braves at 1pm on FOX, and finally at 7pm, the Red Wings try to (finally) clinch a playoff spot @ Dallas on the final day of the NHL regular season.
Maybe the yardwork can wait (not!)...
