The Tigers trade for Wilson Betemit isn’t some magic elixir. That said you’re adding a competent 3rd baseman at the plate and an above average defender in the field. Both are titanic upgrades from what Inge has given this season. It’s good enough. Now go get a lefty starter.
• Michigan State has been selected as the latest in the Nike Pro Combat school line. Very rare company. It’s a great move for MSU football to further the brand and also continue to get MSU to the perception it is a top flight program. It’s not there yet but small steps like this, along with wins on the field, all add up to the end product and perception.
• Wolverine fans please check yourself with the chest pounding in recruiting. If you expect MSU fan or OSU fan or ANY FAN to shake in their respective boots over kids that won’t hit the field for upwards of two years and have minimal impact for likely three years…you’re on drugs. Reality check. Help isn’t on the way for a while. Enjoy.
• New summer Cigar suggestion. Try the Alec Bradley Family Blend. Mid-range price, great smoke for a good value. Very nice for summertime.
• Check out my review of NCAA 12 by EA Sports. Yes I’m still a gamer after all these years, just with far more limited time. Hopefully it gives you an idea of where I stand not only with this product but the state of sports games in total.
