  1. Thoughtful of the Tigers to sweep a doubleheader on my birthday. 7 inning games and a PDT location meant that even at the ripe old age of 54 I was able to stay awake for it.

  2. I have liked this hire from the beginning, and I like it better every day. He and Fetters have done wonders for this team, and for individual pitchers, including Fulmer, Funk, JJ, and others. I think his utilization of Rogers and Haase has been a master-stroke, and contributed very significantly to the team's turnaround. Kudos of course to AA for acquiring Haase, and to the development staff for whatever they did to assist Rogers in fixing his swing/approach to make him a serviceable hitter. Even when they were losing in April, I could not bring myself to criticize him much, given what he had to work with, and he seemed very self-possessed throughout. Hinch has a very professional and engaging style, and it seems to me that he wields effective influence with AA and with ownership. I have heard his interviews on the radio and elsewhere, and he speaks very comfortably about his relationship with AA and with Chris, and specifically what he is expecting from himself and his staff, and from their collaboration. This really reminds me of how Leyland would talk about his relationship with management, it seemed confident and bi-lateral, the way an effective manager should talk and act. Leyland had more swagger and "color", if you will, whereas Hinch just seems like a no-drama guy. A great hire by AA, big-time kudos to him for this decision. I have always felt that you cannot evaluate a GM or Manager in isolation of each other. They have to work as a unit, and these two so far seem to be doing so, and effectively. To quote Mr. Neutron: as Napoleon had his Josephine, as Tarzan had his Jane, as Frankie Laine had whoever he had...

  4. So…. The boy and I bought tickets in the right field bleachers. Went to the authentic trailer bought mystery ball and got a game used Matt Hall ball ($30)🤮. Turned around and tigers cheerleader asked if we wanted to upgrade our seats for free. We are now sitting in section 28 row 3!!!! My boy thinks he is the second coming of Zack Hample and has three bp homerun balls to boot.

  6. I believe the Tigers are now 34-27 (+2 run differential) since starting 9-24 (-72 run differential). Those are two cherrypicked data points, but it is still impressive how long the Tigers have been playing better than .500 ball and with a neutral run differential.

  11. Finally about to own my first tele. Decided to build one through Warmoth. I have a swamp ash body coming and a flamed maple neck with ebony fretboard. I'm doing a white wash paint job, aged nitro finish, black hardware and pickguard (to match the ebony neck), and I'm going to relic it a bit. Adding a set of Brandonwound pickups. Cannot wait!

  13. I am sick to death of the ignorance and stupidity out there, and will no longer - in my personal life, give a pass to people I have known who are buying into the disgusting conspiracy theories and outright lies, be they about covid, it’s origins, the FORMER President, or Jan6th. No more. You’re done. You’re out of my circle.

  17. Announced after the game that Petry would join him on the road for the rest of the season. Hope Jim is ok. I was at the game for pink out the park night. My wife has stage 1 breast cancer, and just had surgery for it. She'll have chemo and then radiation, we are expecting a full recovery.

  20. what cheeses me off about those is that they show terrible moments, like when Torii Hunter went headfirst into the bullpen at Fenway in the 2014(?) ALC(?)S. seems like there could be some algorithm that keeps crap like that from showing up during Tiger games.

  22. Indeed, it sounded like it. I was doing some reading up on him last night. Baseball reference has some biographical links to SABR Bio Project. They may have been there for a while and I just never looked into it much, but the discussion of Wockenfuss drove me to his bbref page, and then I read a wikipedia page about him, and then I decided to check out the SABR link, and then I pulled up a clip of his batting stance, and I suppose at some point today I'll try to mimic that stance and then maybe I'll try to see if it can be open stance rather than close stance, and then it will likely drive me to some other important must do stuff for the weekend which in the grand scheme of things won't amount to diddly fricking pooh, but should keep me off of the streets. Thanks all for the John Wockenfuss rabbit hole.

  28. #1) I dont' think Avilittllefield are smart enough to engineer a below slot deal with Jobe and allocate the funds elsewhere. #2) I'm not sure the below slot thing has actually worked beyond a few exceptions. #3)If you're not Andrew Friedman or a Tampa acolyte, just keep it simple and take the best guy on your board and pay him slot.

  33. I have heard of BDSM where people tie each other up and ****. I think it's weird and unappealing, but if people want to do it, it's fine. People injuring each other and putting their lives in danger is not something I can accept as an OK activity. I don't care how many people are doing it.

  35. It also has impacts on those who either cannot get vaccinated or they can but have reduced efficacy because of other illnesses. There's really no excuse anymore and I'm also tired of their stupid arguments based on junk science or willful ignorance. IN our country every hospitalization and death going forward is and will be 99% preventable at no cost. And this is not directed to people who, for whatever reason, can't get it for logistical reasons. I know that exists too.

  42. I live near 696 and in 2014, the freeway flooded almost all the way up to the overpass. Since that time, they completely rebuilt the freeway and improved the drainage. Not even a puddle so far on the freeway. Shocking what investing in infrastructure can do.
