At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”
From the Simeon program in Chicago, infielder Lorenzo Elion has given a verbal to join the program in 2016.
Elion can play 2nd, short and can pitch. He's tall and lanky, so I could see him outgrowing the position before getting to Michigan and heading to the outfield.
PBR had a writeup from about two months ago:
Athletic 6-foot frame with plenty of room for physical development. Defensively showed athletic actions, moves fluidly and consistently fields the ball in rhythm. Shows present arm strength with athletic arm action. Offensively, hits from balanced setup with quiet mechanics. Utilizes slight leg lift to create rhythm and timing. Demonstrates advanced bat speed with some length in swing.
The Joe Buck drinking game is simple. Every time he acts like a douche, take a drink. We'll all be dead by the bottom of the 2nd.
Harbinger of things to come or fool's gold?
It's almost the All Star break, are the Tigers seem like a team that is sliding toward mediocrity. In the past the Tigers could rely on superior starting pitching and inferior competition in the AL Central to eek their way into the playoffs. Now neither of those things exist and team just seems totally listless. Someone please tell me that there is some realistic hope for the second half of the season becasue this is getting depressing to follow. Harbaugh can't get here fast enough.
