The Tigers have scored 27 runs in the last 8 games. Boston almost scored as many tonight.
I hopped onto Major League Baseball’s Website and voted for the All Star Game.
Here are my picks, with analysis. Make sure if you agree or disagree to post a comment.

Ever wonder what they really mean when a minor league player’s contract is purchased by the major league team, or how a player “clears waivers?”
Rob Neyer, and excellent columnist for ESPN.com, has put together a pretty informative primer on transactions.
For those of you enjoy seeing how the future stars are doing, the Minor League Baseball Website is actually pretty informative.
Keep track of the Mud Hens, or any team going all the way down to Rookie Ball.
Things are starting to wear on the Tigers and Tram. This reminds me a little of 1989, when Sparky had to take time off because the Tigers were doing so bad, and just after two straight good years.
For those of you that listen to the Locker Room (AM 1270, 4-7 pm. In my opinion, the best sports talk show out there), they’ve talked about the fact that one downside of having so many young players on a team is they’re all playing for their lives/careers, and they’re playing so tight, they can’t do anything.
And there’s not a whole lot of light at the end of the tunnel. Matt Anderson, who going into the season, at least had some trade value, is struggling in Toledo. Remember that this guy was a number 1 pick.
Sleeth looks like he could be a player. The Tigers took right handed pitchers with three of their first four picks.
Baugh, their first round pick last year, is throwing in AA. Hopefully one of these two guys will be able to help us out in a couple of years.
