Carlos Torres just followed me on twitter before I followed him.  That's a player who cares about fans.  Now, I can't make smart *** remarks about him on Twitter.  

He's obviously hungry for knowledge.   You should do him a favor and introduce him to Shelton.

But then Shelton won't be able to make smart *** remarks about him either.

They replaced the Jesus with something else now... it's another Jesus but he's different.

Like Chong said about their band uniforms "it's like the same thing only different"

I preferred the older worse Jesus that looked like he was drowning

 

Much like drunk Brett Hull.  It is such a trainwreck, you couldn't look away.

Prior to tonight’s game, the Tigers have recalled outfielder Victor Reyes from Triple A Toledo.

(replaces the empty roster spot from the demotion of Gregory Soto on Sunday)

This is unrelated to anything but this is a decent place to share it. Everywhere I go I see the number 337. There is of course Lee and the wine, but all the time I’m waking up at 3:37 AM in the morning, looking at my phone and it’s 3:37 PM, gas was $3.37 today, and frequently the best part of a book I’ll be reading is page 337.  Fortunately I know that it’s impossible for me to die on March 37 so instead of considering this an omen out of twilight zone, I will consider it just a coincidence.

That is a price from a dealer that offers only non-ethanol gasoline.  But the regular gas is only $.20 cheaper.  Yeah we get rooked.  

We used to have a state attorney general who only had to publicly say something fishy was going on and prices would drop $.25 within a week.  It was considered a “contingent and unpredictable market correction.“  

The present state attorney general would probably support child slavery and justify it by asserting that we all benefit from it even if the child does not.

OK, that makes more sense.   "Rec Gas" is much more up here too.   I buy it for my ATVS, lawn tractor, etc.

When I see a person my age to 10 years younger at a baseball game fiddling with their phone it makes me sad. I’d like to think we know better but we don’t.

For anyone who was watching, that was interesting watching Nick on 3rd, with the 3rd baseman over at Short, he was getting a running start and a lead half way down the line.  The pitcher was definitely thinking about him.

Oh yeah, the Tigers left the runner at third though.

Hope the, “have never seen this pitcher before“ curse is not in play tonight. 

It doesn't matter if they have seen the pitcher or not, that curse is in play most every night

yeah - that was a fun group. For some reason the '79 Pirates and '81 Dodgers stand out to me as NL WS teams that got more than the usual amount of coverage or at least that I noticed - I suppose most likely just because the Tigers had so receded from view over most of that period, though those years were hardly the worst.

Interesting about the Tigers then. From 1978-1983 the Tigers finished with 80+ wins (92 in 1983) every year.  But other than 1981 they never threatened to make the playoffs. But if the current divisions were in place then the Tigers would have been in contention for the Division titles in 1979 and 80, Wild Card Spots in 78 and 82, and would have made the playoffs as a Wild Card team in 1983. What would be our memories of those teams/years now? It wouldn't be considered a Golden era by any means, but fans would have remembered them as far more competitive and interesting years.

Norris 89-91 on the 4 seamer. That needs to get better.

The changing board behind home plate keeps reminding us that 6/22 is Faith Night at PNC.  I wish I lived there. It would be a good chance to wear my checkered keffiyeh and my camo.
