Found August 16, 2013 on Suicide Squeeze:
A five game series began at Comerica Park last night in Detroit featuring two of the hottest teams in baseball.  The Tigers had won twelve straight before the Yankees and White Sox cooled them down on the road.  The Royals were also on fire after the All-Star break, going 19-5 before also cooling off. It’s rare that we get to see a five game series in four days (thanks to today’s day/night doubleheader) that pits Division rivals in the stretch run of the season.  Kansas City basically needs to take at least four of five to have a realistic shot at getting back in contention in the AL Central — a task that got harder after the Tigers took the opener thanks to Prince Fielder ending his power drought against the starter Jeremy Guthrie, smashing a two-run home run in the 1st inning. Tigers fans had to have been feeling pretty good as Prince had been slumping since the All-Star break.  Major League Baseball was feeling happy too as they took to Twitter to compile their nightly recap of baseball highlights… Any time we can watch @RealPFielder28 hit a home run, it’s a good day: http://t.co/pLS4SnG3hq— MLB (@MLB) August 16, 2013.hmp4{position:absolute;clip:rect(438px,auto,auto,482px);}brand new cash advance online But how was starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie feeling about watching Prince go deep?  Guthrie took to Twitter too to give us this gem…. Lets agree to disagree on this. RT @MLB: Any time we can watch @RealPFielder28 hit a home run, it’s a good day: http://t.co/BMaKCU07zE— Jeremy Guthrie (@TheRealJGuts) August 16, 2013 For the avid readers of the Full Count, you know which team I’m going for during this five game series, but everyone should tip their cap to Guthrie for an All-Star sense of humor and Cy Young type presence on social media. Social media helps fans connect with athletes and vice-versa and helps showcase athlete’s personality and humor.  When we see guys like Guthrie, Brandon McCarthy, David Price and Logan Morrison on Twitter making us laugh, it makes us feel relieved that baseball is still a kid’s game at heart.
