  1. He ate very well post game tonight Roger, very well! Sushi, oysters, ribs and, believe it or not, I think I'm missing something! It was a great game, we just came up a little short, but man oh man, what an experience! By the way, did you here in the 11th???
  2. Rog, I didn't know you were a Blue Moon admirer too. Next time in in town, you'll have to let me treat you to one (or two) after a Flying Tigers game. I should be down in a few weeks, so I'll let you know.
  3. Thanks Dad!!! My flight gets in at 9:45am tommorrow, so I'm heading directly there. I'm pumped!!!
  4. Does anyone know what time the gates and will call windows usually open??? 1 or 2 hours before gametime, maybe???
  5. Rog, while we're all extremely excited and proud that he has realized his dream with this opportunity that has been presented to him, we also know that this is a very fluid situation and there is no certainty of him staying there. There are a couple of us (I bet you can't guess the other poster ) who can't stay away from these boards, even if we wanted to; just ask our wives!!!! We have many, many more players discussed in this section of the boards that we're still interested in and rooting for. Also, thanks to everyone else for their kind words regarding this latest news. Clete has enjoyed his stops and the support he's received in Oneonta, Grand Rapids, Lakeland and Erie. We're trusting his time in Detroit will be just as enjoyable and that he can have the opportunity to contribute to the teams success!!! Opening Day....Here I come!!!!
  6. Just found out that I'll also be able to be a part of this years Tigers opening day extravaganza!!!!! I'm extremely excited and, although I hope the weather forecast improves, I plan on being there and really enjoying this experience. :silly:
  7. Thanks to everyone who participated in keeping us all informed with reports and photographs from another awesome Tigers Spring Training. A special thanks to Roger for all of the time dedicated to taking great pictures, posting them and keeping family and friends supplied with many, many milestones and memories!!!!
  8. I've been able to somehow convince (sale) my company on the fact that I NEEDED to have the Orlando area in my territory , so I'll be down for the 2/26 game, hopefully among many, many others.
  9. Thanks and trust you both are doing well! It's been a great year for the SeaWolves and another enjoyable and educational one for me on the boards. Also, a personal "thank you" to fyrftrjim for the always reiliable posting of each days game thread. It made it really easy for someone who spends a lot of time on the road to find each days thread quickly.
  10. Apparently they've brought Sowers down from AAA to get him some additional work and to help them during the playoffs. He can be tough.
  11. This schedule has us vs. Houston at home tomorrow(3/19), but the Tigers website has us at home against Cincinnati. Anyone know which is correct?
  12. Thanks Roger! We'll be there sometime that morning, but don't want to miss anything. Let us know if you find out anything more concrete.
  13. According to Paul Dickson, "can of corn" was first used back in 1896 to describe a fly ball hit so high that the fielder has time to stand directly under the falling ball. The standard theory traces the term to old-fashioned grocery stores, where canned goods were stored on high shelves and pulled down with a long pole. An experienced store clerk would have no trouble catching the tumbling can, thus the term.
  14. Thanks, Roger...It was fun. And, Estrepe...Nothing personal but, you're so darn predictable!
  15. LOL...Wow!...An answer! Have you ever held a public office? I kind of like putrid, now! Thanks! You've made it an interesting day in the office.
  16. Ok, instead of asking "Interesting perspective. Given that, how would you objectively "describe the prospects abilities in terms befitting his actual perferformance" from the numbers (batting average) listed below for the entire season?" I'll ask, "evaluate how this player responded when runners were on base, or how he hit in tough situations,"? Thanks, again.
  17. I wasn't attempting to debate whether Brent is, or ever was, a good or bad offensive player. The numbers speak for themselves. I simply made a comment about your choice of words. My question was an attempt to get your opinion on a player that played a "full" season, over 450 at-bats, and put up BA's for the given categories. No difference in "dissecting" those categories with their sample size over the course of a season and dissecting a players monthly stats, stats vs. left or right handed pitching or day games vs. night games stats. Wasn't asking for your overall opinion of the player's stats. It's cool.
  18. Exactly, the season was 450 at-bats. The number of at-bats was well over the sample size for your assesment of Dlugach's "batting a whopping .216/.245/.353 the rest of the way for Lakeland." or "...Jeff Larish's dominance in August." As a matter of fact, the average with men on was double those two sample sizes and the other two were more as well. Like I said, I was just looking for an objective assesment but, that's proving impossible. Thanks anyway.
