It’s been a week. Not sure if it was an April 15 hangover or just that I still feel like crap after having a touch of the flu (the non-swine variety, but maybe I should stay away some more because the Tigers have been getting it done. 10-8 isn’t what I’d call lighting it up, but it’s better then last year and it’s good enough to give them a one game lead in the AL Central. Even better, Justin Verlander is doing a number on the Yankees what will hopefully be the team’s third shutout of the season.
I was in Columbus this weekend and we went to see a Clippers game at the brand new Huntington Park. Nice place, especially for a minor league team and there was definitely a nice crowd on hand for the Saturday evening game. Unlike here, the weather was awesome and the only knock was that it was a little windy. I recognized more names on the Indianapolis Indians squad (Pirates affiliate) then I did on the Clippers (Indians). At this point though, with my son being four almost five, I’ve consigned myself to the fact that if I’m taking him to a game, it’s to enjoy the time with him and not to actually watch the game, which is fine.
Gary Gillette is going to be blogging Wed. night on Tigers Corner The Escapist . He’s going to give some contrasting views between what you see on the field while at the stadium, what you see on the television and what you see on the internet as he’ll blog the game from the press box. Should be an interesting read so be sure to check it out.
