  1. I wasn't able to attend the game, but was just wondering who was able to get some pictures etc. What all did the players do for the fans? Was this open to all fans? Good win today for the Tigers
  2. lesgoblu02- High you say? I might be high on Clete Thomas, but watching Gary Sheffield this year would make any Tiger Fan wanna smoke some and get HIGH. The guy is washed up. Gary was a great player in his prime, but playing him has killed Detroit so far this year. He's had maybe two big games ( vs Cardinals 9th Inning Homer and I think he might have had a 4 hit game if I remember). Gary is a power hitter and we have to many of those in are line-up. Yes, he can steal a few bases, but the guy hasn't done anything this year. Clete Thomas provides some speed, good defense, and patient hitting. He's had a few nice games for Detroit. ( Walk off walk vs St.Louis and first HR against Twins last Sunday) Let the Kid play Joyce- Ok the guy deserves a shot. How long can he continue this though? Plus he's a Left Handed bat that we need
  3. Another Bad move by the Tigers! I'm sick and tired of them doing this. The Kid plays with a lot of heart and has done some nice things this year. Now I understand Joyce is on fire and Maggs is coming back, but why Clete? Yes, they have to make room, but moving Clete back down is another bad move. Granderson CF Ordonez RF Thomas and Thames LF Joyce DH Sheffield should be benched. Let CLETE play
  4. Todd Jones might be a great person to have on the team for team unity and chemistry, but this guy has to drive every Tiger fan up the wall when it comes to closing out games. Yes, he's had some good days with this club, but I've watched him over the years blow more leads and give us headaches by losing games or almost blowing them. Todd has done a great deal for this club, but he always has to make things interesting at the end. Heck, I almost think he's fixing games or shaving runs. It's a known fact that 90% of the time someone gets on base that he's going to allow a run or more. OK, I've posted this before, but what now do you guys think??? It might not be 90%, but it sure is near it now.
  5. . E Renteria DET SS 78 288 38 76 5 1 5 32 98 22 35 2 2 .313 .340 .264. Ok the guy is in a slump, but If I recall the majority of the Tigers started the season slow as well. Yes, were 85 games into the season, but hitting 264 isn't that bad. Every player goes into big slumps. He will come out of it. Playing Hollimon might be an option, but Renteria is a proven Vet that will come out of this.
  6. In this piece by Gordon Wittenmyer covering Carlos Zambrano's shoulder strain, the Cubs may be forced to shut down Rich Hill. Hill failed to get through the first inning for Triple-A Iowa start on Friday, recording 2 outs while giving up 6 ER and 4 BB, and the Cubs simply want to give him an extended mental break. This may turn up the flames even further on the Cubs pursuit of a front line starter. For what it's worth, Jon Paul Morosi of the Detroit Free Press says Derek Lowe is unlikely to become a Tiger this season. Will another AL club give up on Edgar Renteria after a year? In another piece, Morosi thinks Renteria could wind up staying with Detroit despite his $11MM club option and his batting average dropping over .060 points. Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski and Manager Jim Leyland both speak favorably of Renteria as a player and as a guy in the clubhouse. Still, possible free agent replacements do exist so this is worth monitoring. By Nat Boyle
  7. The Toronto Sun reports the Blue Jays are shopping A.J. Burnett to any team looking for a starting pitcher and want a SS in return because "...they're not happy with either David Eckstein or John McDonald." With the Dodgers in need of a SS, too, this could get interesting. Could the two teams get together and put together a package with Burnett and Eckstein going to L.A. with Chin-Lung Hu and others going to Canada in a Win-Now deal for the Dodgers and a Win-Later one for the ays? What are the chances the Tigers go after him? What could we offer? We need another starter to compete with the White Sox and Twins.
  8. White Sox- Can't Stand Them. I hate Ozzie Guillen and the rest of those thugs with a passion. Twins- Year in and Year out they find a way. They can run like Cheetahs. I hate playing at the Dome Yankees- Need I say more. They seem to get anyone they want. Indians- I don't hate them as much as the Twins and White Sox, but along with the Royals you can't like them
  9. Check my stats??? Ok, I'll agree the guy has done some great things for this team. I'm just saying that it seems JONES has to make things interesting all the time. Yes, like most pitchers he will get a team 1-2-3 in the 9th, but that's not to often. The majority of the time when he allows a guy or two get on they score. Todd is a great guy to have on the team, but he's made me throw the remote a few times. He's shaving Runs for those guys in Vegas

It's a known fact that 90% of the time someone gets on base that he's going to allow a run or more. I know he was 14/14 this year in saves and has had some good years, but no lead is safe when Jones comes into the game.
  11. I wasn't able to make the game in person and I want to kill myself for not being able to make it. I'm just curious as to how many 68 Tigers were there. Was everyone signing? How long were lines to get things signed? What all did you get signed?
  12. As you can all see I like to hear stories about Tiger Stadium. It will be a very sad day when they start to bring the place down. I think we all share some neat stories about that place. I would love to hear some of yours. Any neat pictures? Here are a few of mine. 1980 or 1981: My first Tiger game. Mom and Dad took me to see the Yankees and Tigers. Reggie Jackson hit a homer. 1982: Brewers at Tigers. Dad and I went to the game and had seats in Left Field. Ben Ogilvie hits 3 homers into the Right Field porch. We still talk about that to this day. 1983-1987: Went to many games in between these years, but I do remember going to the 2nd to last game against the Blue Jays in 1987. 1988: Angels at Tigers. Dad and I went to the game and were in Left Field again. We had a ball thrown up to us during batting practice 1991: Twins at Tigers. I use to sneak down to take pictures by the on-deck circle. They never seemed to bother you back then. First row and Hrbek throws me a foul ball. 1993: Yankees at Tigers. I thought I had learned a lesson from sneaking down, but no. Kevin Mass throws me one. 1995 or 96: Indians at Tigers. 20 Rows up behind the Indians dugout and I catch a foul ball hit off the bat of Albert Belle. 1998-99: Went to a few games, but I do remember attending an Astros vs Tigers game with my High School Baseball Coach. That was kind of neat. I do remember Jones blowing a save in this game There were many, but I can't remember them all. I remember as a kid that we use to eat at that White Castle before the games as well and park at the Church near the Stadium. What About you guys???
  13. The Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy Group says the new deadline is enough time to prove it has a $12 million to $15 million financial plan to save the baseball diamond, 3,000 seats and an area that would house Hall of Fame Tiger's broadcaster Ernie Harwell's vast collection of sports memorabilia, some of which is now at the main Detroit Public Library. "We think we have a solid plan now, it's very promising," said S. Gary Spicer, Harwell's attorney and board member of the nonprofit conservancy. The conservancy says its has commitments from two metro Detroit foundations that would supply $100,000 to secure the rights for Catholic school and Detroit public school teams to play on the diamond. Another $100,000 would come from one of the descendants of the families who once owned the stadium -- the Briggs or Navin families -- though Spicer wouldn't say which family promised the money. Another $100,000 would come from a private donor who was involved in an earlier attempt to save the stadium.
  14. Why Pull Verlander after 6 Innings??? Sure he had given up THREE runs, but Leyland pulled him to soon
  15. The Tigers will have to make a run at a BIG NAME starting pitcher if they plan to be around come September. With Bonderman out, I would think that this might be a good option.
