Hopefully everyone’s enjoying the three new writers for the site. While I’ll pipe in on occasion, this will allow me to get ahead on the diaries and work on a couple of other projects I’ve been trying to get started on.
This was one of those rare weekend days where I didn’t have anything going on, so I got to spend some quality time with my son with the TV on in the background. I got to see the last few innings of the Tigers game, some of the Pistons game, and also the end of Phantom Menance. Any day that involves watching baseball with my kid is a good one.
Unfortunately the Tigers lost, and they left the game pretty dinged up. It’s interesting to see how the outfield situation has evolved. At the beginning of the spring, we were looking at an outfield of White/Sanchez/Ordonez and only one of those guys have really played. Pudge left the game with a bruised toe, and Dmitri Young left later in the game with a twisted ankle. Fortunately x-rays were negative on both, but even if they both miss a couple of games, they’ll leave large holes to fill.
Tampa Bay rolls into town on Tuesday. In the meantime, hopefully the Tigers can lick their wounds on during the off day, and a complete lineup out there to win two of three.
