Tigers win opener in Minnesota, Verlander racks up 7 strikeouts

It was cold in Minnesota, and so were a couple Tigers bats.. but that didn’t keep them from putting together 4 runs and securing the first win of the season.  Verlander pitched 5 scoreless innings and fanned 7.  It was nice to see him finally get a win on opening day!

No fools about it, it’s Opening Day!

Grab your radios. Turn on the TV (in HD of course). Grab some cold beers and even a bag of peanuts… Sit your ass on the couch, head to a ball park, or belly up at your favorite watering hole. It’s one of the greatest days a year. It already feels a little bit more like summer. Opening Day is here.

Tigers fight, benches clear, don’t mess with Verlander…

OK, so here is a brief collection of some great heated moments for the Tigers in years past.  My favorite might be the Porcello/Youkilis incident.  I couldn’t find the DET/KC brawl from 2000 where Farnsworth turned into an MMA fighter; I’ll keep looking!

Soon to come: Leyland Ejection Greatest Hits… that will take some time.

 

Gary Sheffield.  I wouldn’t mess with him, would you?!?  Gotta love seeing Cabrera and Martinez in this video… it’s like they knew they would be a feared back to back combo in years to come…

 

In honor of Rick pitching excellent in his Spring Training debut, here’s a great video of him making Youkilis look like a little bitch…

 

Carlos was my wife’s favorite player.

 

Let’s play “Count the Losers!”  1. Laird, 2. Willis, 3. WhiteSox…

 

I always liked Bondo…. never a huge fan of Delmon…

 

Brian Knight = Idiot.  Verlander = would’ve smoked him with a fastball in the face.

Opening Day… where are you?!?
