tigers 0.5 games back with 2ish games left.
lots of scenarios in play
Can't imagine what the players and fans were going through. I'm a Tigers fan and didn't know much about Jose Fernandez other than he was a great young pitcher with an amazing future. The tribute with the trumpet playing Take Me Out to the Ball Game with a slide show of Jose's life was very sad but very moving. Another reminder that sports is sports and life is fragile.
The Tigers (82-70) are 0.5 games up on Baltimore (82-71) for the wild card with 10 games to play. They have 3 at home against the Royals, then 4 more at home against Cleveland, and 3 at Atlanta to end the year. How is everyone feeling about the Tigers in the last week of the season?
I'd love to see this kid playing with Cameron Maybin on the base paths. He's a pretty cool story so far.
From a forum post last week, we know that Tim Tebow is attempting to take his talents to baseball. I wasn't aware that baseball was taking this seriously.
About 20 teams are expected to be on hand for his private workout next week, our beloved Tigers among them. Doesn't appear to be serious interest, just a "was athlete; am willing to look" diligence.
For what it's worth, FTW Sports doesn't have Detroit on their "top 6 teams where he could land" list, which I'm convinced are both Florida teams and then 4 random teams they picked out of a hat.
