The Boys of Summer return to Comerica Park Thursday afternoon in Detroit....BEISBOL IS BACK! After a long cruel winter seeing my Lions and Wolverines miss the playoffs again, my Phoenix Suns suffering through a seemingly perpetual and disturbing "rebuild", and my Red Wings missing the post season for the 2nd straight season after making it for 25 seasons in a row...FINALLY the Tigers are back. But wait, they're also in a rebuild after almost ten winning seasons, 4 straight central division winners, and two World Series (they almost got swept in both). So they might really suck but then again, they might not...which is why they play the games and I watch them.... streamed on MLB.com at the staggering cost of 55 cents a game. Their 7 pm starts during the season are 4 pm my time in Phoenix so it's a nice transition from the work day into the evening. It's the Tigers vs. the Pirates in an inter-league battle....rain is expected but the stadium will be full anyway....it's a cultural event in the Motor City.
