Back in Action

Between a cold, and little free time, I’ve been ignoring the present day Tigers. I got watch bits and pieces of the game last night, and was impressed with how they stayed in the game. This has definitely been a season of surprises. Omar Infante hitting two homers? His second multihomer game of the season? Who would have thought last year.

And Craig Monroe looked like he was destined for a season in Toledo after being the 2003 Tiger’s Rookie of the Year. But a few timely injuries, and the Cody Ross trade, opened the door for him. And he’s been one of the hottest players in the entire league in the season half.

Nate Robertson is another story. He really looks like he’s hitting a wall, and Tram and Cluck should thing about shutting him down. This is the third straight start he’s given up five or more runs. The strikeouts are still there, which is nice, but his ERA has ballooned from 4.40 to 4.86 during those three starts. He’s up to almost 180 innings, which I’m sure is the most he’s ever thrown. It’s time to start thinking about next year.

Barry Bonds hit 700th. The only thing that will be more impressive is when he hits 800, and I think he’ll do it. Ichiro had two hits last night, and is also one step closer to making history.

A good friend of mine has started a Reds blog. The link on the right isn’t up yet, and I’ve talked about this in the past, but he’s begged me to give him a plug, so here it is. Reds Cutting Edge should at least be a fun site for Reds fans to visits, knowing Gr…., I mean Blade.
