Bronx Bombers Come to Town

Each of the four games looks like it’s going to be a sell out when the Yankees square off against the Tigers in this four game series. The buzz in the air, and a lot of people are talking about the Tigers. How they do in the next couple of weeks will determine whether we’re buyers or sellers at the trade deadline, and a good series here against New York would go a long way towards giving the Tigers some credibilty.

I also have a gripe. I normally don’t take shots at other writers, but this is just plain bad journalism that I have to at least comment on it. I’ve never cared for Jack McDowell’s, former White Sox pitcher, column on Yahoo. In fact, I normally skip them. But this time I got suckered into clicking on it because it was in the main story. Basically it was about surprise teams and who has a shot down the stretch.

Click HERE and go read it. Then come back. You really only have to read the first paragraph.

The freaking Indians? Yeah, I’d say they’re a surprise, but they didn’t lose 119 games last year. We’re tied with the Indians, and in my opinion, have just as good of a shot to make a move then they do. He even mentions the Devil Rays, who have no shot at division title. They can only bank on the Wild Card.

Anyway, it pissed me off. The Tigers aren’t perfect, but they’re right there with all the other teams in contention in the division. They deserve some respect.

Game starts in 15 minutes. I’m waiting for the boy to get home so we can watch it. I also got my 2004 Topps Factory Set in the mail. I think I’m going to wait until my son Devin gets older before we open it up and go through the cards. I bought the set from Bruce Harris Cards. The service was great, and I got my cards pretty quickly at a reasonable price. He’s a got a nice site, so be sure to check it out if cards are your thing.
