I think everyone just wants the spring to be done and get on with the regular season. Playing games that don't matter for an entire month is getting boring for everyone.

I like Peralta in the 7 slot. Brings quite a bit of depth lower in the lineup.

I'm done with Spring Training baseball to be honest :lol: He always kills us anyway, nothing too new here.

April 8th Posted Image

Picked the fantasy team last night and was shocked that I got the 3rd overall pick and Albert somehow fell to me. Posted Image Winning!


Nice! Our league was picked based on personal rankings. I didn't get all the way through mine before the deadline, haha; but I was able to get VMart, Uggla, Posey, and a lot of really strong pieces. I got Werth, but that might bite me in the ass since he isn't used to being the main man.

I think it's apparent that the Tigers were, too.

I'll be in attendance on the 9th. Couldn't skip class or get my buddy to play hooky from work.

4 hours boys! Not even sure when I made this thread but I have been waiting for this long before that. Can't wait to watch what V Mart can do for us and Rhymes is poised for a pretty surprising season I think. Let's play ball!!!

BAH, figures. ESPN and their cursing selves trying to showcase the Yanks backfires.

Predictions

• CBS Sports says when Brandon Inge goes to bat, you should go to the bathroom. The nicest thing Larry Dobrow has to say about him is he's a "model citizen." The second-best thing is he's not a "drooly, inbred wackjob." No argument here.

Posted Image The love this guy gets is deserved for how great of a guy he is. But wow, do we need to go in a different direction at the hot corner.

His defense is solid, though. Plus he's a great clubhouse guy and the closest thing we have left to a Granderson-type when it comes to representing the team well off the field and with local charities and whatnot.

Also, from the Tigers twitter:

The tarp is off and the rain has stopped, at least for the moment. Hoping to get the season underway in less than an hour! #mlb

Well my hate for ESPN when it comes to the Tigers continues to grow. I live probably an hour and a half away from Detroit and the Tigers games are always blacked out. REALLY pisses me off.

Nice comment by Mickey York in the beginning of the Tigers Live Pregame show: "What, the Blues scored again!?"

That's on Major League Baseball. They are blackout-nazis. I looked into buying the MLB.TV package because I'm getting rid of cable, but every single Tigers game would be blacked out because I live 'in the market' - despite living over 2 hours from Comerica.

The Lions win against the Redskins that broke the streak was blacked out locally, too; but not in Grand Rapids - because we're on the other side of the state!

C'mon, MLB.

Guess I will just watch the highlights on ESPN since I don't feel like sitting at my computer for 4+ hours watching a baseball game. Hockey isn't bad but baseball is boring for me to just sit and watch a whole game on TV.

Have to hope for Swish to play well. That's my only allegiance I'll hold toward the Yanks all year.
