Sit down Fishboy

This has every reason to be a cluster blank of a game. For that reason and for that reason alone I predict a Tigers win.

Bbref notes his nickname as "Chick".  How does one acquire the nickname of "Chick" if it is not a decipherable part of their real name (ie, Lemanczyk)?

Charles Arnold “Chick” Gandil sort of rolls the same way.

More importantly why does one need a nickname if thy name is "chet"

Used to be when games got "weird" it felt like an automatic Tiger loss.  Now it's the opposite.  That's sad.

Your guess is as good a mine. The only "Chick I can think of off hand is "Chick" Corea's and his name is Armando Anthony.

Why do people call "John" "Jack".

I suppose that has something to do with Normans and Saxons?

Jose Fernandez was sent down for Carpy.  Gardy said this morning that Stewart will be back tomorrow night in Minnesota with Mercer likely going back on the IL with an injury.

Edit: Stewart activated today and Mercer IL'd with a right quad strain.

There are a number of players from that era that went by Chick, FWIW.

Lots of Chicks and Heinies.

Going to be a very wet day. Expect delays if they play at all.

Only 88 games played over 2 seasons. I guess he was just a Chick-fill-in.

Worh a doubleheader tomorrow and Carpenter scheduled to pitch today, I would say yes. But we'll be in trouble in tomorrow's twinbill. Hopefully we'll get rained out to save our 'pen.

We're allowed to have a 26 man roster on the day of a DH. Or something like that.

Stupid Ausmus will call up another hitter that can't hit.

Oh. I was a day early. Either way, it would be great to sweep those stinkin' inbred Twinkies. Put them in the cellar where they belong.  Start dominating the AL Central.

Of all the talk of trading any player who has some success, I ask this; Boyd is under team control for 3 more seasons? And Greene for 2 more? Wouldn't it be better to keep them as we rebuild? With all the young SP coming to Detroit in the next 2 seasons, it would be nice to have some veteran leadership. It would have been nice to extend Nick too but with his switch of agents (to Boras) I don't see as any way that happens.

Who scheduled baseball in the north before the 4th of July?
