Team Of Destiny??

I’ve heard people saying the Tigers are a team of destiny…as their opposition has been self destructing over the past few weeks. But I think to say that is insulting to the team.

Remember The Bad Old Days??

I was watching Fox-2’s sports talk show this week end….and 97.1’s Jamie Samuelson made an interesting point. Remember the bad old days of 2003 when the Tigers had a chance to set the all time record for losses in a season? Tiger fans dreamed of the day that the team could once again be a contender and playing meaningful games in September.

I Got A Bad Feeling About This

We’ve all experienced it at one time or the other in our lives. You get that foreboding feeling that something bad is about to happen. I’m afraid I’m getting that feeling from the Tigers.

So…How Long Have You Hated Your Mother??

The title is one of my weak attempts at humor….as Sigmund Freud felt that many of a person’s mental problems could find roots in early childhood. Whatever is behind the hitting struggles of Brennan Boesch..time is running out.

Let’s Not Get Carried Away

The Tigers improbable victory over the Indians was fun and thrilling. Some are calling it the greatest game they’d ever seen. Once the flush of the win goes away….you shoud remember it really didn’t mean a thing on the long term.
