The sportscaster who coined the phrase "Bless You, Boys" for the 1984 Tigers has died. After every Tigers win that season, Al Ackerman would end the segment by saying, "Bless you, boys, this is the year." I don't think Detroit's ever had a sportscaster so identified with a single catchphrase.
Bless you, Al. Rest in peace.
I have a fantasy baseball league that was started off of here. It is 20 teams and will convert to a keeper league next year. We will redraft next year before becoming a keeper league.
There are 6 teams that have inactive owners. I know I had more responses from here then spots in the league so if anyone would like to take over a team reply to this post. League membership will be capped at 20 next year and the first invities will go to current managers.
Here are some projections of the field:

Selection Show is tomorrow at noon on ESPNU
Game postponed after only 1.5 innings of play due to rain.
Michigan down 2-5 when (if) it resumes.
If either of these teams reaches the championship game, they'd have to win 3 games in 24 hours just to get to the championship.
I seriously question if this thing will cancelled.
We sent Minnesota packing in the elimination game the last time we played them in this park for the B1G Tournament.
We have to do it again.
5 Michigan vs 1 Minnesota in a B1G Tournament Elimination Game on BTN right now.
Oliver Jaskie gets the start for Michigan.
LET'S GO BLUE!!! We need to win this game to lock up an at-large bid.
EDIT: MICHIGAN WINS!!!
Michigan vs OSU tonight starting at 10pm EST on BTN.
The team has been in a bit of a skid recently. Hopefully they'll turn it around for the postseason.
Let's Go Blue!
