Thankfully, mercifully, the Tigers are off today – only to play the Red Sox in their home opener tomorrow.
If it’s any consolation, the Sox just got swept by the Blue Jays. In addition, they are returning home after the road trip from hell, The Sox may be tired, but this is their Opening Day; they will be getting their rings and raising another World Series banner. Needless to say, the “Red Sox Nation” will be psyched.
I was so excited to see the game on ESPN, instead of just watching MLB.TV. It always nice to see the Tigers in the national spotlight. That is, of course, except when the Tigers are getting so blown out that John Miller, Joe Morgan and Peter Gammons argue who’s better between Roberto Clemente Roberto Alomar! (By the way, its Clemente!)
Right now, all I can say is thank God for Clete Thomas and Brandon Inge…
