Justin Verlander to the Rescue…Again!

Really, that could be the headline for almost every Justin Verlander start. I guess some people were worried about him after his poor All-Star showing. I wasn’t one of them, but he proved all those doubters wrong. It looked to me like his curveball was a big weapon for him on Sunday afternoon, which would […]

Game 89: Tigers (45-43) @ Orioles (46-41)

After last night’s craziness, I’m sure we could all use a nice Verlander Day to settle everything down again.

On First Half Failures…and Second Half Dreams

So this is it. The baseball season is officially official. The All-Star Game has come and gone as quickly as we could have all hoped for (you can see we completely ignored it here and I suppose for good reason) and Friday the season begins anew. For now, and probably for the next few weeks, […]
