    Good game today for the Tigers over the Sox. Dang, Justin Verlander was flat out nasty today. Darn near unhittable.

      I think verlander is going to have another monster season. his good start will only increase his confidence.

      however I think the tigers should limit his pitches per game a little. last year he threw a lot of pitches and innings. he had a great season but I felt that he gassed a little in the playoffs. he was still good but not as dominant as he was in the summer.

      the central division is historically weak and the tigers will win it anyway by a mile. who should beat them? the white sox or twins?

      So I would put him on a little bit of a pitch count. not every game of course but I think pulling him occasionally after 5 in a blowout win might save him some bullets for the post season. the tigers are going to win the division and should start to plan for the post season from the get go. No need for complete games of your ace if you win the division by 10 games.

        Agreed. I dont see any reason why he has to throw 250 innings this year. Or have 10 starts where he throws more than 120 pitches like last year.

          Prince Fielder stole second base.

          I thought it was funny.
          The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.

            Interesting to note that Delmon Young's latest outburst did not draw an apology from Leyland or the front office. Contrast this with the response of the Boston Bruins' front office when the N word got used on Twitter regarding the winning goal for the Capitals.

            The Tigers' GM expects Young in the lineup by early next week. Perhaps some jail time is indicated.

            Other opinions?

              Tigers signed OF Jeff Frazier to a minor league contract.

              Frazier was batting .273/.343/.359 with three home runs and 14 RBI this year in the Mexican League. He will function as organizational depth this summer for Detroit.

                He said some really stupid and embarrasing things. It's not for manager Jim Leyland to issue an apology on behlaf of the team, though. Dave Dombrowski did address the situation, but could have done better. The Detroit area has a large Jewish community who have long been supportive of the team. While Young did apologize, this kind of thing likely won't be forgotten soon.

                  A few random thoughts. Just when we released Brandon Inge, he reappears as Ryan Raburn, and the more incompetent Valverde gets, which is increasing by appearance, the more annoying his 'spastic chihuahua' dance gets when he actually finishes a Tiger win.

                  One more thing....Do the Tigers think they're in the N.L. West, where 3 runs a game will keep them over .500 and in the race? Their offense is terrible. Today was a bad day.

                    With this lineup as well as Verlander, Fister and Smyly, if the Tigers can't win, they'll need to consider a new manager.

                    This season has been pathetic when it should have been legendary. At least we have the hopes of a late season surge like the Cardinals had last year.

                      Didn't they start poorly last season, as well. At least they're .500 now.

                      Fielder will start hitting again. Of that, I'm sure. I can't say that about the rest of the team whose name is not Miggy.

                        I still think (or I should say hope) they'll win the division. They need to build a good cushion between the rest of the pack by August and September though. They have choked twice down the stretch on Leyland's watch, losing the division on the last weekends of 2006 and 2009. I wonder if it would be possible to get rid of Lloyd McClendon without Leyland. Like a reaction to a bad medical diagnosis, I think some of the guys in the line-up should be seeking second opinions when it comes to advice from Lloyd on hitting. Go Tigers.

                          Is Leon Durham still in the organization. It seems he did some good things as a minor league instructor.

                          McClendon, Lamont and Jones. They are the Herbert, Grammas and Traczewski (sp?) of today. But Sparky saw the greater good and did let his friends go when the time was right to do so.

                              Leon Durham is still the hitting coach at Toledo. Swap him for Lloyd, I say.

                              Well, today they couldn't hold on to a three-run lead twice. Cabrera had an extra base hit taken away by the umps. They did, however, score FIVE whole runs all by themselves. Id be so happy for them if they were the San Diego Padres.
