    I'm sad that Lake DeWitt is being drained. Its going to have a negative impact on the environment in downtown StL.

    Wainwright or Perez for closer? Hrmmmm. Perez as your 8th inning, setup/strikeout guy. Wainright as your 9th inning mycurveballletmeshowyouitmycurveball guy. I think its viable if the starting rotation can give you those 6.1-7 inning quality starts.

    You: GOD NEVERMIND, I'LL JUST CALL THE FUCKING WONDER TWINS MAYBE THEY CAN UNITE TO FORM A FUCKING CLUE FOR YOU

    Yeah, can't figure out which would have been less impressive for the All-Star game next year, lake DeWitt or a ton of half-finished construction. Way to be on the ball StL!

    Apparently they're going to (another) closer-by-committee deal, though I'm guessing that's just a stop-gap till Wainwright returns. Not sure why Tony doesn't want to try Perez out as full-time closer though...he looked pretty good last night.

    The night is dark and full of terrors.

    Shut your hole. Although honestly Inge is just fine at backstop. I just miss having him around. By the way, his name is Pudge. Only away stadiums call him Ivan.

    Satan man, what are you doing in the fantasy league? You're trading a good player for a bad player, who is a downgrade at the position from what you already have.

    Can you explain your logic on this one?

    Sure can.

    "Fuck it."

    I have absolutely no chance of making the playoffs and since no one ever fucking accepts trades I took what I was offered. Feel free to vote it down or whatever. I doubt I'll be back in it next year. The communication is downright awful.

    Looks like the Tigers 'win' the Freddy Garcia sweepstakes. He's been signed to a minor league contract, good through the end of 2008. He'll report to Lakeland now and if he's eligible, he'll make the Aug 31 roster.

    It's partially my fault too. When I proposed the trade, I thought for some reason that Tulo. played second base, which Satan did want to upgrade. Tulo. had been pretty hot at that point too, and there's still a chance he could reclaim some of his 2007 form.

    10 runs in the first inning for Charlie Zink.

    Somewhere Tim Wakefield just threw a baseball at his TV. It sailed three feet to the left.

    Mind-blowing. Ortiz gives the BoSox TWO three-run shots in the first, Boston leads it 10-0.

    Last I saw, Texas led 15-14.

    Vent time.

    The director for FSN Detroit is kind of a dick.

    There is a commercial promoting Detroit Cornerstone Schools, a hugely successful charter school in inner city Detroit. It stars about 30 kids that go there as well as one Tiger (there are three versions): Justin Verlander, Gary Sheffield, Old Man Leyland. The kids sing a song that goes "I'm gonna let it shine / gonna let it shine / shine my light all over the world" or something d'awww like that while the Tiger does a voiceover promoting the school and asking for donations. They're 30 second spots and are generally innocuous the first couple dozen times you see it. After that, it's only a little grating.

    There is a fourth version, though. This version is a whole minute long. It features a MUCH longer version of the sing-song by the kids before the Justin Verland voiceover kicks in. They ONLY air this one minute spot when 1) the Tigers just had a horrible half inning or 2) there is a rain delay.

    Thanks, FSN Detroit director. I stick with your broadcast when the Tigers are getting their asses handed to them or when there isn't any fucking baseball on and you torture me. Fuck yourself

    The worst part is? Some of these godamned commercials will bleed into hockey season, as well. Especially the awful Little Caesars ones since Illitch owns both teams and Little Caesars.

    Also, Comerica Bank needs to fuck right off and die. They're airing commercials about how they're part of the community, just like me.

    EXCEPT THEY MOVED THEIR HEADQUARTERS OUT OF MICHIGAN DOWN TO TEXAS, SINCE OHHHH NOESSSS FLAGGING AUTO INDUSTRY!

    *huff puff*

    I hope they put on Spotlight: Dave Dombrowski next. I don't want to see Spotlight: A Player I've Already Seen Like Six Times again. It's fun to learn how DD learned to be a GM.

    To be fair, FSN New England is a giant reeking poo-anus as well. The Red Sox and Bruins are broadcast on NESN, but FSN gets the Celtics so it can't be avoided entirely.

    As an aside, for anyone who watches FSN New England, I once saw a car in Lewiston that I'm pretty sure belonged to Gary Tanguay.

    How can I be sure?

    Well, he was on vacation at the time, and Dickerson had mentioned the day before that he was back home in Maine.

    And the license plate said "TANGUAY."

    No shit.

    Also, olol on the M's for passing on the Washburn deal with the Twins. The Twins were ready to assume the bulk of his gigantic contract and they instead said "no sir, we're going to keep Jarrod Washburn and his shit pitching right here in Seattle".

    They've made a lot of smart moves this year to shed contract and prepare for the future, I don't understand why the hell that sequence suddenly came to a screeching halt.
