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!
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.
The former White Cap goes oppo on Papelbon
OK, so no Alligator, but that was pretty sweet.
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?!?
This reminds me of his son’s performance in the Home Run Derby last year!!
