Found April 07, 2012 on Losers Bracket:

Not gonna comment....wait, uh, I just did, now what?

Yesterday’s loss leaves the Milwaukee Brewers in last place in the National League Central.  Here is the overreaction:

  1. They are obviously feeling the loss of Prince Fielder as I’m certain he would have easily hit six solo homers to at least tie the game.
  2. Braun was 0-5, and displayed warning track power, so he was clearly on ‘roids the last few years.
  3. Aoki was 0-1 with a strikeout in a crucial situation (runners on first and third and nobody out).  He is adjusting to coming off the bench in a completely different time zone.  He’ll probably be suffering from jet lag for a few months.  He hit fine in Arizona because that is closer to Japan.
  4. Gallardo is suffering from arm fatigue from pitching too many spring training innings.  Worst opening day pitcher ever.
  5. Somehow the manager has to take some blame for the loss as this is the way professional sports work.  Fire Roenicke….or fire Rick Kranitz first, that is a more standard move at this point.
  6. Manny Parra still seems like a douche bucket.  I can’t wait until the Brewers play the Tigers in inter-league play (not happening this year BT-dub) and he plunks Fielder…will be a brawl for the ages.

With all that said…my prediction:  94 wins.  Go Brewers!


Time lapse of Comerica Park scoreboard improvement

Prince Fielder wasn’t the only large addition for the Detroit Tigers this offseason.  The main scoreboard at Comerica also added some pounds.  The video panel received a major face-lift as it went from one of the smaller ones in the league at 2,176 square feet to the fourth largest at 6,096 square feet of LED high-definition ridiculousness.  Only Kansas City, Philadelphia and...

Gamel, Brewers adjusting to roles post-Fielder

MILWAUKEE Reporters huddled in front of Mat Gamel's locker Friday evening, and the questions regarding the "Prince formerly known as a Brewer" seemed inevitable. After tallying two hits in his first Opening Day start, Gamel was asked about the importance of his performance given the man whose shoes he'd now be filling in Milwaukee. "Who's shoes am I...

Fielder hits first 2 HRs as a Tiger

Prince Fielder has hit his first two home runs as a Detroit Tiger, and Miguel Cabrera has hit two of his own in Saturday's game against Boston. Cabrera hit a two-run shot in the first inning off Josh Beckett, and Fielder's first homer with Detroit was a solo shot in the fourth. The two sluggers then hit consecutive solo homers in the fifth. Fielder signed a $214 million...

Fielder, Cabrera hit 2 HRs each in rout

DETROIT (AP) -- Prince Fielder hit his first two home runs with the Detroit Tigers and Miguel Cabrera added a pair of his own in a 10-0 rout of the Boston Red Sox on Saturday. Fielder signed a 214 million, nine-year deal with Detroit in the offseason, forming a powerful middle of the order with Cabrera that was on full display against Red Sox starter Josh Beckett (0-1). Cabrera...

Tigers get 4 HR's from Fielder, Cabrera in romp over Red Sox

Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera turned the second game of the season into a home run derby, each going yard twice as host Detroit improved to 2-0 to begin the 2012 schedule with a convincing 10-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday.Cabrera, the reigning American League batting champ, set the tone with a towering two-run shot to right center in the bottom of the...

Detroit Duo of Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder on Full Display in Victory Over Josh Beckett, Red Sox

DETROIT -- Prince Fielder stood in front of his locker, discussing his first two home runs as a Detroit Tiger. Then Miguel Cabrera -- who had just finished reviewing his own two-homer game -- walked past. "Pow!" Cabrera said playfully. "One, two, three, pow!" Detroit's potent slugging tandem is already finding its groove. Fielder and Cabrera hit two homers...

THUNDERCATS HOOO! Tigers Hit 5 Home Runs, Beat Up on Red Sox 10-0

Earlier today, I predicted that the ball would carry better in Comerica Park and that Prince Fielder would hit his first home run as a Tiger (#humblebrag). What I didn't expect, however, is for the Tigers to put a full blitzkrieg on Boston Red Sox pitcher Josh Beckett, resulting in a new nickname for the Tigers' offense that I saw on Twitter at one point, but have no problem...

Wezen-Ball: A Peek at My Scorecard by Larry Granillo

On Thursday, during our all-day, Opening Day chat marathon, I made a casual observation about Prince Fielder bobbling a ball at first-base and tossing it to the pitcher for the out rather than running to the bag himself: Larry Granillo: That was interesting from Prince. Bobbled the ball on the grounder to him and decided to lob it to Verlander instead of taking it himself....

Recap: Tigers go happy-go-jackie on Beckett

Umpire Dale Scott sent to 15-day DL with 'sore home run finger' Photo: The Associated Press If you were looking forward to some good ol' fashioned Beckett hate, you couldn't have asked for a better game.  Josh gave up 5 home runs as the Tigers embarrassed the Red Sox 10-0. I don't know if his thumb is still bothering him or it's the curse of the even season...

Faces change, stakes the same for Brewers, Cards

During the run-up to last year's NL championship series, the St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers openly acknowledged something most people already knew: The two division rivals didn't like each other very much. The Cardinals went on to earn ultimate bragging rights in one of baseball's most spirited rivalries last season, knocking the Brewers out of the playoffs...
