Former Tiger's center fielder Curtis Granderson has been named by a source to be one of four players (three from the Yankees) to be facing a 50 game suspension for PED use. Is PED use as rampant in other sports as it is in baseball, or do other leagues sweep it under the rug. (This is not official but the guy coming out with this was right about Melky Cabrera being suspended last year before it was announced)

It appears that our offense is really good and our pitching is subpar at times.
4 wins from another B1G Title.
Now let's bang...
...posbang, that is.
The team is now 2-3.
After losing each of their first three games by only one run (two games in extra innings), the men broke out the bats in Port St. Lucie for the first victory under the new coach.
Sophomore James Bourque (Ann Arbor, Mich./Huron) earned the win on the mound, scattering six hits and allowing just a run with four strikeouts in 5.2 innings. At the plate, junior Michael O'Neill belted his first home run of the season, a three-run shot to left in the eighth inning. O'Neill joined senior Patrick Biondi with two hits on the day, as Biondi drove in and scored a pair of runs.

A doubleheader against Fordham tomorrow, and then they get to face the Mets (yes, [some of] those Mets) in an exhibition.
Good day for both teams of bat-and-ball-slingers.
With the winter storms passing through the midwest for the past couple of days, I thought this might be a nice reminder to everyone that spring, she is a comin'.
Like a lot of people that grew up in the Detroit area, I grew up listening to Ernie Harwell calling Tigers games. This time of year, it was always nice to hear him recite "The Voice of the Turtle".
Although I haven't posted a video in so long that I forgot how, I'd rather try and fail than post a link to the Free Press article that reminded me of this. Here's a version from youtube:
Okay. I had this once, then screwed it up. Here's a link to the youtube page: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gr0wonW9u1A
