DWG College Hoops Preview: Teams #25-20

Delmon effing Young.  Is it possible that the dude is a legit playoff assassin?  And when he blows up in the playoffs and the Tiger fans are like, "Hooray Delmon he's awesome" and all us Twins fans are kind of like "ha ha small sample size it's pure luck this dude sucks" that we're actually wrong?  Like, that Delmon is a Mr. Clutch type of guy rather...

So who wins the World Series?

I don’t know much about the San Francisco Giants, but I do know more about the Detroit Tigers, their opponent. The Giants are in the National League, and really only appeared on my TV screen in the past few weeks. The Tigers are in the Twins’ division, and I have followed their travails a little too closely. I think, even though I may not be a San Francisco Giants expert, I know...

Links of the Day 9/13/12

Thursday the 13th is always the worst, isn’t it? The top 15 rookie seasons in MLB history. There is a Twins player that probably deserves a trip to the Hall of Fame on this list. A gentle reminder. Joe Mauer is actually really good. Another good catcher is Ryan Doumit. Definitely not a good left fielder, but good with a bat. SCOREBOARD MLB Detroit 8, Chicago 6 – Either Francisco...

Tigers Proving That Winning Divisions Only Easy on Paper

It wasn’t supposed to go down like this. As August turns to September in this sometimes God forsaken 2012 baseball season, this isn’t whatTigers fans had in mind for Labor Day weekend.

Morning Manager: Week 22

Last Week: 3-3 This Week:  CLE (9/3-5); at LAA (9/7-9) So, What Happened? If last week was a football game, we would call the game “a story of two halves.” We would have said that the home team stunk out the joint in the first 30 minutes, then regrouped in the locker room, made some adjustments, and were a totally different team in the second half. That...

Twins-White Sox Preview

The Chicago White Sox went cold at the plate at an inopportune time. A return home to face the Minnesota Twins could help. The White Sox will try to avoid matching a season high with their fifth straight loss Monday night when they open a 10-game homestand against the Twins. Following a 1-6 road trip in which they dropped three of four at Baltimore and were swept by Detroit, the...

Peralta gets latest tryout as Tigers' No. 5 hitter

The search for a fifth hitter in the Detroit Tigers batting order goes on. Jhonny Peralta hit fifth Tuesday night, for the second time this season, making it four different players to bat behind cleanup man Prince Fielder in as many games. Eight different players have been used in the fifth spot this season. Delmon Young was the guy through the first two-thirds of the season...

Rangers Skew To Sonic Youth Over Michael Young’s Dinosaur Jr. When Blasting Olt-Rock

Don’t you love when New Yorkers say the expression, “I got your _____ right here!”  Coming out of the right taxi driver’s mouth, it’s like a cello being played by Yo-Yo Ma.  Sometimes it can get confusing when you are actually trying to tell someone you’ve located something.  Like, “I got your cellphone right here!”  Probably sounds like you’re being an a-hole...

Dombrowski satisfied with Tigers' status quo

The cost apparently was too high or the offerings were not to Detroit's liking, so the Tigers will enter August with the same cast of players they had at the end of July. There were the usual reports -- allegedly false and otherwise -- but in the end, general manager Dave Dombrowski and manager Jim Leyland professed to like what they have. For now.

Week 15 MLB Power Rankings

(Note: All stats end with games ending on Sunday, July 8). 1. New York Yankees (52-33, Last Wk: 2) I started the season with the Yankees in the top spot, and to end the first half, there they are again.  I still think they’ll make at least the ALCS, if not the World Series.  To finish off the week, the Yanks took three of four from the rival Red Sox, adding an exclamation point...

Citizens Bank Cheesesteak Man Calls Wife, Telling Her To Bring More Whiz

Phils decided they wanted to get younger for Friday’s game so they’re bringing up this guy from the minors.  They say he’s got good power, but he’s been playing first base on a foot stool.  At least they could’ve got Ryan Howard one of those giant Rawlings glove bean bags.  So Howard’s Achilles is better, but now the Phillies’ Achilles is they have to play him.  If...

Game 2012.65: Rockies at Tigers

Detroit Tigers, 30-34, 4 games behind Chicago (1st), 4 1/2 ahead of Twins (last). That was an exciting game last night. I had to leave before the extra innings, but I’ve got it recorded and will watch as soon as I finish this blurb.  I can’t wait!

Twins MLB Draft Preview

With the MLB Draft coming next week, and TRE's post about the NBA draft spurring me on (it's the one right below this one, genius) I figured we might as well take a look at the MLB draft, particularly since the Twins are so involved.  Involved as in they have the #2, #32 (thanks Cuddy), the #42 (thanks Kubes), and the #63.  So this is pretty much a really great time to...
