  1. I went to a single game last year. And we lost. To the Chicago White Sox… The DTE girls were standing right in front of us the whole time preening and texting. Somehow we survived.

    Imagine you are Steve Staggs.  You are almost 70.  You have grandkids.  Everyone in the family knows you played in the big leagues.  During a family dinner they talk about it and decide to google the name to see if anyone remembers.

    They land here and I made a joke about him.  I want to be better than that.  


    You are a bad influence. I mocked him too.

    Steve Staggs... claim to fame.. never did a push up or bench press in his life....

    He didn’t have any fat on his body but managed to develop a potbelly by age 14 anyway. His first MLB hit was a HR off Doyle Alexander. According to baseball-reference he was drafted in both the second and the third round of the secondary phase of the draft in 1971.

    I don't know what's more surprising, the Tigers being 2-0 or the fact that they have somebody in the organization that knows how to run a twitter account.  Must be one of those unpaid interns.  

    They may be closing down their MySpace page to devote everything to Twitter but you can never be sure.

    What the **** did this team do to Beau Burrows?  

    What the **** did this team do to Beau Burrows?  

    In four years of high school ball he pitched 255 innings. I don’t know about legion ball or anything. Then he did throw over 130 innings each season at ages 20 and 21 and later suffered bicep and oblique injuries. Maybe he was overworked. He only had two complete games in his entire high school career so he didn’t go really deep in games. I misread the stats he actually had 11 complete games. Still he may have been overworked
