More like "Babe" Wells. 4 homers in 3 games. I really hope he found his game again. He can maybe earn some of that giant contract.

well, I guess the tigers just bide their time and shuffle past the starter and then tear a new ******* in the relief? 3 games and 3 blown saves by the royals...

:D No kidding, huh? The Royals bullpen truly is brutal though outside of Soria. I'm really happy for Dontrelle Willis after today's game. It sucks the dude has produced one win in a Tigers uniform, but you can't help rooting for him after everything he has been through on and off the field. That was the best Willis pitched with the Tigers: way better control except for early on and I loved the emotion he showed and his attitude in general from spring training to this point. Hopefully that first start was a confidence builder for him and he can be a reliable pitcher at the back-end of the Tigers rotation.

Jumping off topic slightly, but Miguel Cabrera is a really really good hitter. Two huge clutch home runs to the opposite field both with two strikes in the count. One saved the Tigers (temporarily), the other won it. Maggs looks terrific too so far.

Home opener at CoPa in about 12 hours! I'm stoked already!

Is there anything better than Opening Day with the Tigers? Its just not the same with the Wings, not much of a production at the Joe. This is basically a holiday.

This thread just died as soon as the playoffs started. :lol: Tigers are in the middle of a brutal stretch here: 37 games in 38 days with two West Coast trips and a host of games against teams we don't historically do well against (Angles twice, Twins twice, Yankees, and Bosox). So far so good--they've managed a split in Anaheim and took 2 of 3 from the Twins. If they can make it to May 24th in decent shape they'll be primed for a run.

Western swings are always brutal, so I'm OK with 5-6 out there, especially since we got two of three from Minnesota. Willis was awesome yesterday. Just keep beating the Twinkies and things will take care of themselves.

The Rookies are really stepping it up! Boesch and Sizemore both get their first ML homers and Jackson goes 5-5 and leads the AL in hits. Starting to like this team a bit. Just need to whip the starters into shape and we might have a team this year!

Big Rick with the game of hos career. Shutting out the Yankees over 7 innings is a hard task.

3 of 4 from the Yankees with 2 shut-outs... pretty solid series I would say.
