Texas Sweep and Trade Rumors

The Tigers are just starting up, and Mike Maroth got Kevin Youkilis to ground into a double play. Nice start, but they have some making up to do after the three game sweep by Texas. The only thing good you can say is they kept it close in two of the three, but the Tigers now sit eight games below .500. To get their, they’ll have to go 31-23.

Pat Caputo broke a story on AM1270 that the Tigers were set to trade Ugueth Urbina for Jerome Williams at the trading deadline. Williams came down with the sore elbow, so the deal got nixed. Talk about dodging a bullet, as Williams has recently had surgery on that right elbow.

And as we head into the final two months of the season, the playoff races are really heating up. It looks like the Yankees and Cardinals will cruise along, but the other four divisions, along with the Wild Cards, are still wide open.

And once again, the Oakland A’s are doing it. I know Billy Beane is considered the genius among the blogging community, and it’s simply hard to argue that point. Yes, he still has the big three, but with Miguel Tejada gone and Barry Zito looking mortal, this team is still heavily in the playoff picture. In fact, the Tigers can help out the A’s by beating the Red Sox this weekend, who a game and half back of the A’s for the Wild Card spot.

I’m off to Toronto again this weekend. No baseball unfortunately. I also got some good news for next years big project. I’m even more jacked up about this then I was about doing the 1984 diary, I just have to think hard about how I’m going to roll this out. Good stuff.

Have a great weekend.
