Had to be done. Not a good signing by Avila AT ALL!
Not often in sports you feel bad for guys, but I do feel for Pelfrey. He was uber passionate on the mound and seemed to take losses and bad starts really hard. Didn't blame anyone else and put everything on himself.
Among other accomplishments, he caught every inning for the 1953 baseball national champions
We improve to 17-6 on the season and 1-2 in the big ten.
The game just started on BTN. We lost 7-2 last night.
We are now 16-4 on the season with a big series coming this weekend at Maryland. Maryland is probably the second best big ten team and a good showing would put us in the driver's seat for the big ten title.
It is the first day of spring and opening day is barely 2 weeks away. There are a bunch of astute Tiger fans on this blog, myself excepted from that. However, I am a life long fan and am interested in their prospects this year. I noted that they started out in spring ball as the worst team in either league, but a quick check of their record shows them at 11-13, which is alot better than it was. Realizing that spring training means zero in the long run outlook for a team, nevertheless at least slightly encouraging.
So the question is: How are the Tigers going to do this year? What will be their strong points (and players) and what will be their weak spots? Do we need a new GM and coach?
