Trading Spaces

The trade deadline has come and gone, and in my mind, there really was only one blockbuster. The Cubs getting Nomar is very big, and now more then ever, I’ll be rooting for the Cubs down the stretch. They have a long way to go to catch the Cardinals, but they’re only one game back of San Diego for the Wild Card. I think a Cubs/Yankees series would be a huge draw.

Hee Sop Choi also found a new home. I like this guy, and think he’ll be a great talent, but like Bobby Kielty, hasn’t quite found his place yet. Touted as having 50 homer potential, he’ll be hard pressed to do that in Los Angeles.

I was at the game on Saturday. Great pitching matchup between Mike Maroth and Mark Buerhle. Of course the ending was kind of anti-climactic, because Carlos Guillen drew a bases loaded walk to win it in the bottom of the tenth. So is that considered a walk off walk? Bobby Higginson gets an assist on this because he made an awesome throw from deep in right to throw Paul Konerko out at the plate. Almost 41,000 people made it out to the park last night, so the Tigers are still getting great crowds on the weekend.

And speaking of trade deadlines, the Tigers stood pat. I would have liked to have seen them shop Urbina, but I’m glad Dombrowski stuck to his guns and didn’t deal him for just anyone. Deals can still go through if the players clear waivers, so you could still some activity, but I’m not holding my breath.

Today is the 25th anniversary of Thurman Munson’s tragic death. Munson was one of the best throughout the 70s, and won the MVP in 1976. Munson put up Pudge Rogriguez type of numbers before Pudge, and had he been allowed to play out his entire career, probably could have been a hall of famer.

About a year ago at this time, I started tracking my traffic on sitemeter. During that time, over 15,000 have stopped by. I want to thank everyone who’s stopped by and read all of my ramblings. I hope there’s a little bit here for every Tiger fan.
