In two games that won’t count in the pre-season standings, the Tigers beat Florida Southern in what has become their annual innaugural game. Earlier in the day, they lost in a “B” game to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. I couldn’t find boxscores, but the Free Press had a write up on them. I also found a better write up on the Florida Southern Game at Yahoo.
Also in the news, Chris Spurling is going to be out for the year. Spurling would have been little more then a decent middle reliever, so this doesn’t hurt us that much, but with a team that needs all of the help it can get, you don’t like to see things like this happening.
ESPN did a writeup on the Tiger’s Spring Training camp.
And if you haven’t checked it out yet, Bilfer completed his four part Tiger team analysis. A really great piece of work, I’d recommend you go check it out.
