  1. Also, prior to the ALDS read an article stating that the tigers were hopeful that Guillen would be back for the ALCS.... what's the latest on Guillen? Thanks
  2. Does anyone know if this was the only change made to the ALCS roster? I haven't seen the new one published...
  3. I'm in town and going to stop by today... no idea where to go were to park or how to get access to the place. If anyone has that information it would be helpful. I have to catch a flight out of Tampa late afternoon.
  4. I'll be down in the Orlando/Tampa/Lakeland area up until the 24th with the family and was thinking of stopping by the facility. I know the first game isn't until the 25th but are fans allowed to just go watch practice this week? Is there a particular spot anyone would recommend for autographs or just getting near the action? I've been down to Lakeland for a game a few years ago, but I just wasn't sure if there is something we can do when there isn't a game scheduled. Thanks
  5. This is my first opening day I'm going with my wife and my 5 year old son. Can anyone recommend a place that might be more appropriate for a 5 year old downtown? He's been to bar-type places for lunch or dinner with us before but I'm not sure how crazy opening day will be.... I'm thinking get down there around 10am or so...
  6. If your credit card refund says "PROVISIONAL", that means temporary. I have a refund that says PROVISIONAL for the full amount, then another refund for the full amount minus $8.20. I suspect the provisional refund is going back on the credit card as soon as this clears, and I'm out $8.20 in fees. I'm keeping the complaint open until a full refund is processed for this debacle. The refund policy on my receipts clearly mentions I'm supposed to receive a full refund except for shipping and handling fees (which were $0 in this case). It also does not mention anything about 4-6 weeks.
  7. I have officially opened a credit card dispute with VISA for the 4 tickets I purchased.
  8. If I don't get a full refund, I am filing a complaint with the credit card.
  9. I am finding it nearly impossible to be positive about the Tigers right now. Even if they win tomorrow, how they have handled the Cabrera issues has left me a little numb.
  10. I don't think the bold part is speculation. .28 at 7-8am on game day whenever they tested him. At .35 you are automatically taken to the emergency room.
  11. Now that it's sunk in with Cabrera.... I think you have to bench the guy in the most important game of the year. You can't let anyone get away with that kind of behavior. As much as it hurts, it is what it is and I think the guy needs to sit a game! It is not ok to have him do this and there not be any repercussion for it. Some kind of discipline needs to happen here.... Maybe they can just fine him... I dunno.
  12. After the news on Cabrera getting sh*tfaced the night before the biggest game .... combined with the team going 20 some innings without scoring .... combined with Leyland blockhead starting a minor leaguer that hasn't pitched in 3 months in the biggest game of the year up to that point.... I might have to change my tune a little. I'm still giving credit to the Twins for going 16-4 while the Tigers went 10-10..... but ..... the tigers are definitely partially responsible for blowing it. They have had countless opportunities and the reasons outlined above are inexcusable.
  13. The thought has crossed my mind that the players were paid off. It is possible.
  14. Extremely well said and you are completely correct. If they lose tomorrow, this is the story of the season. Of course you could make the argument that they wouldn't be there without Cabrerra (and they wouldn't), but still it is unacceptable. Win tomorrow and all will be forgotten.
  15. Realistcally I think the Tigers are going 4-3 the last 7 games.... consistent with the rest of the season. The twins will stay hot and go 5-2. We'll win it by 1 game. No room for error. We cannot afford to go 3-4 (or worse) to finish the season out.
  16. I've heard a lot of talk on TV, radio, and whomever you seem to talk to that the Tigers are "blowing" it. I don't get this argument.... in reality, the tigers are playing the same consistent baseball they have all season.... winning slightly more than losing. It's the Twins that have won 11 out of 12! They're on an incredible streak right now. That's the reason they're in this pickle not because the tigers are "blowing" anything.
  17. Completely shocked tickets are still available 1.5 hours after opening! I just got 2 tix to game 1 and 2 tix to game 2... section 144! Must not be a lot of faith we will make the playoffs and/or the economy playing a role.
  18. For what it's worth, I can tell you for a certainty that it was Illitch's call to sign him for this incentive contract and also allow him to achieve it.
  19. I still call it Tiger Stadium whenever I go to the game
  20. Just announced.... Ryan Perry optioned to Toledo.
  21. Domino

    I'm hoping we get him back by the all star break... he would be a nice boost to our annual 2nd half slump.
  22. This is sickening. He's hardly played Grandy... tonight he was finally in the lineup batting 9th in the semifinals vs Japan. 8th inning rally happens and we cut the lead to two with a guy on 3rd and Grandy up. He pinch bats for him despite righty vs lefty and wind carrying out to right. Next guy K's and then a popout. Rally over. Then the 9th comes up and some guy who has no business in CF over Grandy lets a run score by a misplaced ball. Way to go Davey. Fantastic management.
  23. I think it was either Bill Freehan (when he was coach at Michigan) or Cecil Fielder for me. Now I have about 40 autographs including the entire pitching staff from 2006.
  24. Your only options for Inge: 1. Spring Training before the pre-season starts 2. He does signings in the Detroit area every year, probably charges around $30-40 a autograph. He'll either be at DC Sports or Gibraltar Trade Center. 3. Tigerfest, luck of the draw
