Been gone for a while, hope the fact the Tapatalk is working well means the rest of the site is too. Guess we'll see when I get home.

No such luck.

Very happy to have baseball back. Perhaps I'll be around here a bit more this season. Wife's spending the summer working for big pharma in San Francisco, so it might be a beer and brats and baseball on the radio type of summer.

Quoting this post for its importance!

Nice opening win yesterday!

I'm really jacked about Cespedes. I don't think he's going to walk any more then he has in the past, but I'm thinking he hits .290 to .300 this year. Coupled with highlight reel defense in left, we're are going to be very happy he's on our team.

I'm also looking forward to a whole season of Iglesias/Kinsler turning awesome double plays. They looked so smooth and quick together.

Can see on Tapatalk, but it is still pretty jacked.

from my laptop post numbers appear to be back. "New Posts" still pulling up nothing.

Edit: And it still goes to 'database error' after posting, but editing is working.

Observations:

Had a great day at the game... this year was probably the worst in terms of congestion, both traffic and # of people. We got there at 10 and at that point the lots were pretty much full. Luckily my parking guy squeezed us in.

What's funny about events like this and the Detroit Free Press Marathon.... I can tell all the people who never come to Detroit based on traffic patterns. There was a huge backup, maybe a mile long, on Michigan going East waiting to turn left onto 3rd street.. all trying to merge with the people coming off the Lodge/75 service Dr. Total Clusterbleep. Like 1 car was going per light. Not sure where they were going... maybe the Casino parking. There's tons of parking lots down in the area other than the "big" ones. But that means they could get lost in scary Detroit.

A guy meandered over to our "table" at one of the beer tents and asked if he could hang out there while waiting for his friends... "sure". The guy proceeded to talk our ear off. Mid 60s.... here's his story. He owns some resort up north, "Just give me a call, I'll hook you guys up cheap." "His dad not only designed the Sherman tank he also fixed the doors on the B2 bomber.... (I was tempted to ask if he also broke the Enigma Code). His brother was Al Kaline's roommate. He had a stack of Tiger schedule posters.... a twenty something girl saw them on the table, grabbed one thinking they were just there for anyone, and he proceeded to maul her. "Oh, I'll let you have one because you are cute... Go Tigers... What's your name.... Yeah, Go TIgers.... " He gave her not only a hug but a peck on the cheek. I walked over to her and apologized, saying "He's not with us and that was an awful lot of work for a poster...." Was glad when his friends showed up.

On the way out I saw two females crying. One was on the steps of the church near Cheli's.... her guy was consoling her. The second was on the Hazen Pingree statue in Grand Circus... she was on the phone giving that 'silent bawl'... her man was totally oblivious to her plight and had the look of just wanting to go home and was mad that he probably wasnt' getting laid now.

In our parking lot some tailgater females were offering to lick your nipples for $5. Guy on a megaphone announced he hasn't had sex with a woman, or a man for that matter, in 8 years.

As for the game... great defense. Got a great view of Kinsler's giant leap. Also on the Cespdedes HR. Nice well rounded game. Almost had a heart attack at the start of hte ninth when I saw the bullpen door open, thinking a new pitcher was coming in. It was just the guy to play catch with Cespdedes. I told my friend that Krol is warming up and if it gets to Mauer he's coming in. Kept having to explain that we're dealing with Brad Ausmus logic. I guess Price giving up an infield single means he's gassed? Let him finish.

That's a brilliant overview, Rob. And five bucks for that service on opening day is a sweet deal.

Man, there are some great insights in this thread after page 1. Why didn't you guys post all that yesterday?

Oblong, thanks for letting me sit at your table.

There was also a preacher guy on a pedestal near the entrance gates shouting into a megaphone about how the Lord doesn't want us to be loud and obnoxious....

Megaphones are like boxes for cats.... once you find one around it's so much fun to play with... "Hey you.... over there... in the green.... nice cans...."

Gibby sure does look excited.

In his defense, he is sitting right next to the guy who is being pushed out so he can be brought in. That has to be comfortable.

Actually, the company she'll be working for, Genentech, are famous for developing HGH. Maybe she'll get embroiled in a big baseball controversy.
