Tigers’ DH Situation Begs For Solutions – But Not Jim Thome, Apparently

Think back, for a moment, to last night’s 6-4 defeat at the hands of the Minnesota Twins. The Tigers’ incumbent designated hitter and established number five hitter Delmon Young came up three times with runners in scoring position. He popped out with the bases loaded the first time, drove in a run with a sac […]

Not Quite .500 Days of Summer

Not Quite .500 Days of Summer

What do you type when you haven’t written a published word on the site with any substance in roughly two weeks? Rubber Chicken. That’s what you type. Reasoning? A)     It means nothing.
