Can anyone recommend a go-to blog for Tigers baseball? Is there one that dominates the sphere the way MGoBlog does for Michigan football?
ohio state blogs will post literally anything
Bless You Boys has been my go-to Tigers blog for the past several years.
I agree. Bless You Boys is the best one, by far.
None of the others I've browsed in the past comes close.
You can't go wrong with Al Ackerman. Ironically enough, Ackerman's phrase started out as sarcasm because of complaints that he was too bitter and cynical. The Tigers won so seldom back then that he started that phrase when they won.
Other Ackerman gems: graphics that said "Dead Wings" and "Pathetic Pistons." This went over so well that a Toledo station came up with "Cadavaliers" for Cleveland's basketball team. This was before very many people had cable, and most sports fans used to watch the local broadcasts religiously.
At any rate, Ackerman was an original.
This blog site is pretty funny and covers Detroit Area sports/topics.
Also not as well updated I think as it used to be. Still though interesting if you want some in depth news about the minors. Again not as good as it used to be. Might be a decent once a week check.
Plus, you get to hang with BlueAdams and his never ending lineup/rotation threads.
Bless You Boys, the SB Nation blog, is the go-to. It used to be Ian Casselbury's, then was taken over by ("Mack Avenue") Kurt. It's no MGoBlog, but it's the go-to. And you'll find posts of Misopogonal logghorea on there.
Roar of the Tigers is written (and drawn) by a slightly unstable woman named Samara Pearlstein who dies inside with every Tigers out, and whose mix of self-drawn artwork and effervescent writing creates perhaps the most poignant sports commentary on the Internet.
The third is Bilfer's Detroit Tigers Weblog. He's the most Brian-like but doesn't post often enough to compete with BYB as the main channel. Everything Bilfer writes is worth reading.
Bless You Boys is the only tigers blog i follow ... again it is no mgoblog and i tend to discuss more tigers baseball here than there but it is def worth a read
