Man, the Tigers have been hot lately. Win the last 5 of 6 against division leading teams, the Texas Rangers and Baltimore. Plus, that is without our 2 new free-agents and through other injured players. One game below .500. It may not be where we would want to be at this point (51 games), but this is the best start we have had in 11 years, depressing as that is.

There are signs of better things to come. At least it is a bit of a distraction from life without hockey (for those of us not quite into basketball)!

Magglio and Percival are bastards?... I don't think they can help getting injured. How about we call some of players who are actully playing bastards (Ledezma, Pena, Infante, the late Nook Logan, Martinez, Inconsistant Robertson, Matt Ginter) Gotta be fair... On a positive note...Tony Garratano and Chris Shelton have really played well since they've been brought up...Hopefully they can keep it going!

Tigers look to pass .500 tonight! Go Tigers!

Infante has been playing well as of late...

Ledzema is a joke. He's got an ERA over 7, 3 higher than the team's ERA. The opposing team's BA against him is OVER .300.

How he ever got into the rotation baffles me. He has given maybe one good pitching performance in a Detroit uniform.

Heck, why don't we bring back Cornejo?

In his one full season (2003) His ERA was 4.67...and the Tigers have significantly better defense now. His WHIP was 1.5...but again, improved defense would cut down on hits.

He also gave up only 18 HR in 195 innings. Some of the better picthers in the majors are on pace to give up around 25-30 this year for a comparable number of innings...Eric Milton has already given up 21, Johan Sanatan has given up 10 in only 83 innings. Brett Myers has given up 10 in 80. Mark Prior has given up 9 in 58.

In other words....BRING BACK NATE!

Every time the Tigers get to .500, they lose 5 in a row....Embarrasing.... I'm begining to believe they really are cursed.

Very true. We cant get over the .500 mark.

Plus, we can never lose just one game, it seems. If we lose one, we lose five, like you said. Then we have a decent winning streak, but once we lose, its another 4 or 5 games! We need to get over this! So, stop this thing at 2 tonight.

I'll take Polanco for a spare shortstop and a mid-level reliever.

I was wondering how long it would take to deal Urbina once Percival got healthy.

Polanco will almost certainly start at 2nd ahead of Infante.

Tigers could put out this lineup...

1) Inge, 3b
2) Guillen, SS
3) Rodriguez, C
4) White, LF
5) Young, 1b
6) Monroe, CF
7) Polanco, 2b
8) Higginson, RF
9) Logan, DH

Yeah I know...Higgy's barely played this year and when he's played, he didn't hit anything. But he's the best fielder on the team, and I'd rather have Young at 1st than Pena, and White in the field, which doesn't leave a ton of choices for center fielders or for DH.

SWEEP! against the NL West leading Padres!

Seems we step up against the real good teams.

One game under .500. So if we get there, are we going to lose another 4 afterwards?

Go Tigers!

Rumors (mostly from USA Today during the past week)

Wanna know why Ugueth Urbina was traded when he was? Apparently, Urbina got into a fight with Magglio Ordonez...and he got into a verbal confrontation with Troy Percival. So that was that...management decided it was time to move Urbina and get him out of the club house...

Also, Magglio Ordonez has allegedly told friends he wouldn't mind being traded this winter if the Tigers don't show much greater improvement...he wants to be with a legit contender...

And finally, Mike Maroth's name is popping in newspapers for every team looking for a starting pitcher...people are interested in prying him away from our Tigers...

Well Mags should have thought of that when he signed the 7 yr 107 Million contract, also he isn't even playing now anways because of the hernia so he shouldn't speak.

Who cares if Mags *******....I just want him back in the lineup.

Rather have him than Logan. Or leave Young at first and put Monroe in left if they want to keep Logan in.

3b Inge
SS Guillen
C Pudge
DH White
1b Young
LF Monroe
RF Ordonez
2b Polanco
CF Logan

That's a pretty damn solid lineup. Good hitters 1-9.
Now if we could just replacef****** Ledzema with a decent 5th!!

I don't know about Logan in a full time spot. He too inconsistant and isn't a home run hitter. Keep Rondell, Maggs, and Monroe!!!

How about Mr. Chris Shelton!? That 2 run shot to tie up the game today! He's really hitting the ball well.

I am not saying Pudge deserves it more than Bondo and that he is having his greatest year ever or anything...but Pudge has a legitimate shot at starting and it would be nice if we had a starter when we host. Bonderman should definately be in the All-Star game, but he wouldnt make it as a starter, which is what we should have.
