  1. I saw Carl Willis start against the New York Yankees in Tiger Stadium. Since it appears that he only had two starts in the big leagues I guess I saw his final start. I don't think he was around for the decision but I believe the Tigers won a "see-saw" affair. Ron Guidry started for the Yankees.
  2. Has Jimenez really impressed anyone since being called up in 2017?
  3. No - you understood their point. Leyland said it a few years ago and others have been parroting him since.
  4. The Tigers have a small patch on their right sleeve. Does anyone know what it says?
  5. Did Jack Morris just say "Had the Tigers not scored any runs they would have been shutout"? 🤔
  6. Anywho - have we been doing "this" for 20 years now? Does anyone know? Oblong? Biff? Any of the other "old timers"? If not, it must be close!
  7. I take it that not mentioning a perfect game/no-hitter during a TV telecast or radio broadcast is a thing of the past? 😕 👽
  8. The Detroit Lions is the greatest program in the history of television. I have probably missed less than 5 episodes in over 40 years. Amazingly, they all seem to end the same way. 😉 Happy Holidays to all.
  9. I had people over so my concentration wasn't 100% on the game. Prior to the interception it looked like Stafford had a clear path to the end zone for a TD but elected to slide instead. I do not recall seeing a replay. Is that actually what happened or was he indeed touched/tackled by the defense?
  10. The Fords aren't interested in winning. Mr. Ford said so himself years ago: "The fans.....are interested in the won-loss and I guess that's the barometer you judge success or failure by if you're a fan." Obviously Mr. Ford did not consider himself a fan and also did not judge success by the win-loss record but by how much money the team made.
  11. Anyone listen to the radio broadcast? The Erie Sea Wolves announcer Greg Gania was teamed up with Jim Price. He did pretty good.
  12. Shep mentioned Yukon Cornelius so he can take over permanently as far as I'm concerned.
  13. Wow! That is some incredibly poor managing by Gardenhire. As soon as Zimmerman gave up the first hit/HR - he should have been removed from the game.
  14. The was some poor managing by Gardenhire. Wilson gave up 3 straight hits - all singles - to load the bases. I can see giving him the next batter - maybe he can get a K or even a doubleplay but when the result is a run scoring single there is absolutely no reason to let him pitch to the next batter. 👽
  15. I don't really watch baseball just the Tigers. Do other teams run the "contact play" with a man at third like the Tigers do? I'm sure they do but I have never seen it another team do it - only the Tigers. Also, what is the thinking behind the contact play - the third baseman will be unable to field the ball cleanly and/or make a poor throw to the catcher? 👽
  16. Originally posted 4/30/18: Gotta love how game after game, year after year, decade after decade any time a Tiger reliever comes into the game he promptly and without fail blows it. 😁 👽

  19. So the next guy picked makes the HOF - right? 👽
  20. As always the Tigers got screwed and failed to protest. The replay rule reads as follows: The Replay Official shall make a decision on a call under Replay Review within two minutes after the Crew Chief and Replay Official confirm which call is subject to Replay Review. If the Replay Official does not make a decision within two minutes, the Replay Director (or management official serving on his behalf) will instruct the Replay Official to make a decision. If the Replay Official does not feel he has enough video evidence to make a decision at the time of prompting by the Replay Director (or management official serving on his behalf), the Replay Official shall inform the Crew Chief that the call stands. It has been widely reported that the replay took 3 minutes and 41 seconds. That is a violation of the rules and the Tigers should have immediately protested the game.
  21. I seem to remember Staub stealing home against the Tigers. Obviously not known for his "speed" but the Tigers messed up a pickle play and he was credited with a steal of home. Am I misremembering this? I believe it was when Staub was on the Rangers so this would have been 1980.
