It seems anytime I’m able to watch the Tigers here in Charleston (and no, MLB Extra Inings doesn’t count) they lose. Saturday night was no exception.
So far, it appears my worst fears about this year’s Tiger team are true. A nine game stretch against Cleveland and KC did little to show us what this team is made of. Seriously, how often have we been able to describe any Tigers team by saying “their hitting is soft, but their rotation is rock-solid”?
We all knew this West Coast road trip was going to be tough. If these first two games are any indication, it’s going to be down right brutal.
Congratulations to Ubaldo Jiminez and the Colorado Rockies on their first no hitter in franchise history. My God, is this really their 18th season? With tonight’s no-no and several near-no hitters already this season, is it too early to speculate that the post-steroid era will be one of pitching dominance?
Saturday was my birthday, and I spent much of the day at the South Carolina / Ole Miss game in Columbia – my first college game. Hopefuly, I’ll be recapping that tomorrow, along with whatever pics I can get from my Blackberry.
