The Tigers have been streaky. Last weak, they lost four in a row and now they’ve made up for it by winning their last three including a 5-4 win in the first game of their doubleheader today. Armando Galarraga looked about as good as he has had since April and he almost finished seven frames. Joel Zumaya improed to 3-0 but he picked up the win because he gave up the tying run in the eighth but Brandon Inge broke the tie in the ninth with his second RBI of the game.
That leaves us with tonight’s game. Jeremy Bonderman is making his first start in about a year and he’s already been tagged for two runs in the first. Ryan Perry was sent down to make room but that still leaves the decision as to who’s going to lose their spot in the rotation. My guess is it’s due or die for Dontrelle Willis and if he doesn’t show something tomorrow, he could be in the pen.
I’ve had some interesting luck with contract jobs the past week. I don’t advertise this too much, but I have a couple of businesses that spit off some cash but I haven’t been able to quite develop them to completely replace what I was making when I quit my job a couple of years ago. So, I’ve supplemented it all with contract work and this is about the time I’d pull something in. Anyway, this is about the time corporate tax departments are hurting, but I had two places turn me down because they said I was overqualified. Not that they were anything special or anything, but I’ve now determined that I’m too smart to have a job.
download The Longest Day Since I’m not working, you’d think I’d be writing more but I was out of town this past weekend working on business number three. I’ve always had an interest in investing and making money in real estate and I’ve been taking some intensive (and excellently taught) classes and one of them was a three day over the weekend. I finally got to watch the Burn Notice premiere and I was very happy. The new show on USA, Royal Pains, is something I’m on the fence on. I’m pretty picky with my television and I’m not sure if that’s going to make the cut.
It’s now 6-0 White Sox. Ouch.
