The last All-Star game in Houston was a glimpse of what Miami Heat games would become.
LeBron James scored 29 points and was the MVP.
In honor of the All Star Game this week, I’m going to limit my weekly winners to a team or someone within Major League Baseball.
Is it more embarrassing to forget the lyrics to the national anthem while you are performing the song, or to get through the whole thing only by checking the crib sheet on your wrist?
Verlander allowed five-runs on four hits during one inning of pitching, Fielder who played at first base went 0-2 at bat and Cabrera was hitless in his only appearance at bat.
Who would you rather have on your team: Curtis Granderson or Austin Jackson? I have always been a huge Granderson fan, and was dumbfounded and outraged when the Tigers traded him to the Yankees for Jackson, as part of a three-team deal. Jackson seemed like a good young player, with a lot of potential. But Granderson was a superstar in making. This season, however, Jackson has moved even or ahead of Granderson in almost every offensive category.
In an All Star Game that included many Detroit Tigers, their bats were fairly quiet during the American League loss to the National League 5-1 on Tuesday night.
When I was a kid, baseball meant everything to me this time of the year. Playing it. Watching it on TV. Listening to Ernie Harwell on the radio. Reading about it.
Tigers fans say they’re eager to take in the All-Star game, even though Justin Verlander will sit this one out.
Two halves are supposed to make a whole, right? Unfortunately, the Tigers first and second halves haven’t added up to a strong finish over the past five seasons. Even in 2006, when the Tigers made it to the World Series, they faded fast in the second half of the season and only managed to make it to the post-season because they won the Wild Card spot.
The Detroit Tigers have a candidate to be the final player placed on the American League roster for the 2011 MLB All-Star Game to be played in Phoenix, Arizona on July 12.
