This past week has to have been one of the roughest I can remember. Taking care of a sick kid while your wife is also sick is pretty tough. Taking care of a sick kid while you’re sick is even tougher. My son’s been sick for a couple of weeks, and wife picked up what he had earlier in the week. Friday I started feeling like crap, and Saturday was the worst of it. Needless to say, I have a pile of tax returns to do, and I haven’t been able to write much in my fever induced haze.
And I’m not sure what’s worse, getting sick during the week, where you fall behind with your work, or getting sick on the weekend, when you fall behind on the things you actually enjoy doing.
With that said, the big story of the weekend was Magglio Ordonez hitting a homerun in only his second spring at bat. I’m going to cover Mags pretty heavily in my Tiger’s preview over at Hardball Times (another thing I’m behind on). Brandon Inge has stayed hot and leads the team in homers, but he’s also made his share of errors.
The Tigers fell short in their comeback attempt today against the Mets, but they did beat the Braves on Sunday. With the loss, the Tigers now stand at 5-4 this spring.
Once I get back on my feet (literally), I’ll talk a little more on what I think is going to happen in the 2005 season. I’ll also have a brief synopsis on the 1934 Tiger season to set the stage for the 1935 diary. And of course I’ll try to keep you apprised of what’s happening down in Lakeland.
