OT: Tigers late night: 4/17

Submitted by Gobgoblue on April 17th, 2013 at 10:06 PM

I know some hate the constant Tigers thread, but I thought since we are on a west coast venture it wouldn't bother too many.  

Anyway, Scherzer is starting.  Hopefully he gets that fastball tuned right.  As always, let's get those bats going so we don't have to rely on our bullpen.

Go Tigers!

Anyone that hates a nightly Tigers thread can simply not click on it.  It's that simple.

Pistons doing their best to make me completely hate them by extending this game...

click just to hate.  I agree with your sentiment! 

I watch the Pistons bottom line like a hawk, but haven't tuned into an actual game in 2 years I am sad to say.  I'm not asking for Miami Heat status; I just want relevence.  They are the Pirates of the NBA.  And yet, I am a PISTONS fan for life.

Ahh yes thanks! I know the Mariners have really had the Tigers number the past few years but it's kind of nice to see them actually have a decent roster for a change. Getting Morse and Morales really adds some depth to the lineup that they haven't had since the Edgar Martinez days, but they really need to young guys such as Ackely and Montero to live up to their billings to be a wildcard team but it's nice to see them field a competitive team.

This is a Team 96 in review video, by MGoBlueVideo, and it is the best youtube video I have ever seen.

I don't know how to inbed that into this comment, and I don't have enough points for this, but someone needs to make this a post thing on the side. Goosebumps, chills, tears (allergy season). It hits the whole emotional spectrum. 

Go Blue. Team 96 baby.

 

EDIT: Just realized it already has been posted. It's just on page 2 now. Must have been posted when I took a 2 hour break from this page earlier today.

4 SO so far for Felix.  However, the Tigers are known for their adjustments.  Hopefully Cabrera and others will see what is going on and hit some shots in the gap.

as Seattle was stinging the ball a little more that inning.  Tigers turned a DP thanks in part to a very slow-running Smoak giving Infante plenty of time to make the relay.  95+% of MLB hitters would have beat that relay.

Questionable decision by Leyland to send out Brayan, I guess this might be his last chance to sink or swim, if he blows it he better be on the first plane to Toledo.
