Thanksgiving Eve (November 24th) at midnight was the deadline for all clubs to announce their arbitration offers to qualifying members of the team. 29 teams faxed their orders in to the league office on time, at least 29 we were told of. No one knows of the Tigers status with players such as Magglio Ordonez [...]
…well, it’s more than that. Not even the best players in the game have done what he has before he’s even turned 30. Not Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Ken Griffey Jr. etc. He is one of two pitchers in the history of the game to win a Rookie of the Year, a Most [...]
Saw these on Flip Flop Fly Ball like a month and a half ago. I have no idea if he minds if I use them over here but I linked his site so I’d imagine he wouldn’t mind any traffic. If he does, I’ll gladly remove them.
The New York Times published an article in their Bats Blog today that, according to their sources, with the new collective bargaining agreement set to be finalized early next week, HGH will be randomly tested beginning in February when players begin to report for Spring Training.

Cale Iorg was outrighted to Triple-A Toledo. This means that Iorg has cleared waivers from the 40 man roster, which is incredibly disappointing since this [...]
EEEEYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!¡!!!!!¡!!!!!!¡!!!! In all seriousness not a bad move if he plays less than 60 games. LESS THAN. Plus, we all get another pitiful Tiger to berate during the season when things are going badly.
Rob Neyer of SBNation sent this link out earlier tonight, claiming it would be the most important thing you would ever read. Don’t know about that, but it sure is a damn good article by the author of Moneyball, Michael Lewis. Read it, I just bought the book by Daniel Kahneman, I might review it [...]
….since he commited 5 freaking errors this year. But, he did win the A.L. Cy Young Award today which is awesome, albeit expected. In fact, the only question left is the controversy (if you want to call it that) of whether or not he is worthy of the MVP Award as well, an achievement a [...]
