    Quite a performance. Had more total bases in one game than Albert had in 2 weeks.

    Someone offered me tickets the other day and my response was: "No thanks, I'd rather watch those bums at home on tv so I can turn them off as I see fit"

    Interesting article: Why Wrigley Field Must Be Destroyed

    Openning sentence:
    Having not won a World Series since 1908, and having last appeared on that stage in 1945—a war year in which the professional leagues were still populated by has-beens and freaks—
    the Chicago Cubs must contemplate the only solution that might restore the team to glory:
    Tear down Wrigley Field.
    what a solution ?
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I found the article funny. However I don't accept that you cannot build a team to win consistently in Wrigley and he discounts all of the inept ownership groups that have tried and failed to build a winner. Then again, when you are a profit seeking entity and you are making money losing then why spend more to win unless it has a substainical impact on the bottom line. They are the 4th highest valued team in baseball the 3rd most profitable according to Forbes.

    Why can't baseball players play through injuries like other professional athletes? It really bothers me that some of these guys (cough, Red Sox outfield, cough) can't suck it up and stay on the field

    End Of The Meow?

    Finally. Finally the Detroit Tigers won back-to-back games, a feat not accomplished since mid-April. Maybe they are over the hump and will get back to the kind of baseball they played in the second half of 2011. Sure hope so. Likely they play in the AL Central.

    I think its the pitchng more than the hitting. Can anyone explain why Mike Minor is still on the big league roster? He has not won a game or had a quality start since April 24th against the Dodgers.

    Jurrjens is showing signs of life at AAA, and there are some rumblings that Medlin might be sent down for a couple of weeks to stretch his arm out for a move back into the starting rotation.

    The Sox brought Verlander back to earth last night, but you could tell they had some lucky swings.

    I'm glad the Summer Olympics are this summer, because I just don't see the Tigers making a run at the Division this year. I don't see them tanking necessarily, but unless the Sox and Tribe completely fall apart, it ain't gonna happen.

    Defensively speaking, the Tigers are looking like one of the worse teams I can ever remember watching. I know we've been bugged by injuries to Jackson and both Laird and Avila but Boesch and Young have been horrendous on the field and Fielder hasn't been much better. I'm not counting them out for the playoffs yet though. ALC teams seem to be notorious for imploding in the summer over the past few years so anything is definitely possible (provided the Tigers are not the team doing the imploding).

    Matt Cain, pitcher for RJ's beloved Giants, threw the 22nd perfect game in MLB history and the first for the Giants (NY or SF).
    Congrats Matt!

    No-hitters/perfect games are becoming what home runs were 10 years ago.

    It sure seems that way sometimes. I wonder if it has anything to do with less players taking steroids and the subsequent decline in home runs and power hitters?

    (I know the stats say otherwise though and the no-hitters and perfect games are really not any more prevalent than they were in the past)

    My eldest son left me a voice mail after the game...he was there. "I'm leave the ballpark, Dad. I saw Cain's perfect game!!"
    And Raf sent me a text message, "Hey old man. Get your ass out of bed... We are three outs from history...."
    Yes, I was sleeping.

    Go Tigers!

    Too soon to count the Tigers out.....yet. Despite playing some pretty bad baseball they are only 5 games out and the season is not yet half over. Detroit has the second-best record in the majors for inter-league play (over the years). They just completed a pair of 2-1 series wins against Cincinnati and Chicago. The games in Chicago seemed like Tiger home games. Thousands of Tiger fans stormed Wrigley for the 3-game series. The result? The biggest regular-season 3-game series attendance in Wrigley Field history. Amazing! My guess is a ton of those very loud Tiger fans motored from western Michigan, not too far from Chicago's north side. Go Tigers!

    I have a few friends from the Detroit area who drove out for one or more of those games and a few friends who now live in Chicagoland who put on their Tiger gear and went to a game as well. It was indeed crazy to see how many Tiger fans were there. It seemed like Tiger pitchers were getting louder cheers for strikeouts than anybody on the Cubs was getting.
