Mike Lantry, 1972
Back back back back back back back gone...
Who do you have winning the HR derby this year. I have Robinson Cano.
Here are the rules for the drinking game
End of 5th Tigers up 3-0 on homeruns from Hunter, Martinez, and Peralta... But Verlander is back to being dominant.
Edit: Changed Title
As the clock struck 10:00 pm PST, Tim Linecum no-hit the Padres. 4BB, 13K. He only had 4 wins to this point in the season and has had control issues for the past season-plus but he pitched a gem tonight. Congrats to him (it's his first of his career)
Edit: Changed Title to be a cheeky son-of-a-B.
Mod edit: No cheeky titles. Playful, maybe, but not full on cheeky. Seriously though, no...JGB.
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.
Mike is a Michigan Baseball Alum and has had a long career in the minor leagues. This Grantland article really touches on some interesting aspects of a minor league career that began 15 seasons ago. He went to Michigan and it is a good story about professionalism and hope...
Love Miggy, but used him to get this Michigan guy some love...
