Five straight wins against the Chicago Whitesox and the Cleveland Indians may have been the final blow in the year long race. If not Justin Verlander is going for his 22nd win of the season, and that would spell certain doom for the Whitesox and Indians.

Today we lost a legend in the Detroit Lions Community. Reporter Tom Kowalski died this morning. The Detroit Lions and all area reporters sent their regrets through every media available. I was lucky enough to have a few beers with Tom over the last couple of years, he was genuine, and a great guy. God Speed Killer...

There are a few players that piecing together some of their best years. Justin Verlander has 17 wins, Alex Avila is having an All-Star year, Jjonny Peralta is an All-Star, and of course Victor Martinez and Miguel Cabrera are quietly shooting 100 rbi a piece. That being said, there are holes and big ones in this lineup and pitching staff. We are now halfway through August and can't seem to put Chicago and Cleveland away. The Tigers have a 6 game home stand coming up. This is will determine a lot, as Cleveland is traveling. Bring it home boys...

The Detroit Tigers have a very special pitcher. I thought he was good before but he almost threw another no-hitter today. Today's game against the LA Angels was pretty sweet and had a ton of drama. On top of Verlander pitching a no-no, Jared Weaver was going for the Angels. He was lights out as well, until Magglio Ordonez smacked a 2 run bomb that almost went foul. Magglio stayed at home plate watching it because he thought it might be foul. Weaver took it as he was showing him up, and the two started trading barbs. Then later in the game Carlos Guillen hit a home run shot to right, he really showed Weaver up and the two were talking at each other while Guillen rounded the bases. The next batter Alex Avila took the brunt of Weaver's anger. A pitch just above his head. The home plate umpire tossed Weaver and Angel's Manager Mike Sosa. The next inning Verlander gave up his first hit to end all the drama, and the Tiger's won 3-2.

I was very worried that my other favorite professional sport might get cancelled this year. I looks as though the players and the owners are working it out! This is important especially for the Detroit Lions fans. We have some momentum and some talent. This is the year that we take the next step to becoming a winning franchise.

Good lord Justin Verlander is having a year. If the Tigers could get another pitcher we might make the playoffs. Maybe.

Verlander started it off against the Chicago White Sox. Brad Penny finally picked us up on Sunday, but it was because of an incredible comeback. All the AL Central Teams are withing 5 games. It's anybody's division.

So, I am Tiger's slappy. Now that it's out in the open, I gotta say the Detroit Tiger's are playing some pretty good ball. They took two out of three from the Arizona Diamondbacks and had a great couple days of weather as well. Justin Verlander absolutely destroyed Arizona and set his MLB strikeout high to 14. Incredible. Sunday, the Tiger's retired Sparky Anderson's number (11). Overall great weekend with the Tiger's taking 1st place away from the Indians outright. I know it's not even the All-Star break, but I have optimism.

Justin Verlander is having his best year so far. His June is! amazing and he seems to be getting better. Yesterday he 4 hit the Rockies, and gave up only 1 run in a complete game. His 9th win of the year. Still he may not be at the All Star Game. How is this possible? The Detroit Free Press is reporting that Jim Leyland will not change the rotation so Verlander can be in the All Star Game. Verlander will pitch the day before the mid summer classic and by new MLB pitching rules, a pitcher can't pitch the day before. He may get the recognition, but it's all about the winning the division and beating the Cleveland Indians for the Tigers, and I applaud that. Damn refreshing boys

This blog encompasses all that I like to write about. I have many sports apparel websites dedicated to teams in particular, as well as, where I like to travel to and my music sites. If you choose to follow I will mostly likely be commenting on sports through most of my posts, with indie rock music and the Florida Keys updates thrown in. More to come ....
