Good win for Detroit yesterday. Bad timing, I missed a Wednesday day game, thought it would be at night. I watched the condensed game on FSD but already heard the score...

Feels like the ghosts of the old Tigers from the late 80's early 90's are haunting the field! Now if only those ghosts of the 68 or 84 Tigers would step out!!!

Hi, I am new to this group. I love the Tigers. I cannot just pick one Tiger to be my Tiger. I enjoy watching the whole team. However, the bullpen is the only part of the team that scares me. Bummed the game was called off today, I religiously watch their weekend games. emoticon

Coke was better yesterday than Ortega, but yeah, it is about time, enough is enough. Unless he is to be the pitcher they use only when they are losing badly and want to save the rest of the bullpen arms, they need long relief for blowouts...

No game today? Whatever will I do? I was looking forward to last week's Detroit Tigers Weekly and a bunch of boring sports shows about baseball's Golden Age as I waited out a long rain delay... Really, does anyone actually watch those shows during rain delays? I'm glad they simply let me off the hook and postponed the game today.

Luke Putkonen pitched a scoreless inning on Sunday, 3 up 3 down with 2 Ks. It was part of a pretty boring scoreless 10 inning tie at Disney Wide World of Sports vs. Atlanta. I like being able to listen to the games on Gameday Audio over my PC, I remembered him pitching Sunday but needed to look up the boxscore for stats.

Putkonen is my cousin. I hope to see him play some time, but he is a relief pitcher, so it is difficult to catch him in a game.

Yeah Ty Cobb wasn't very good with sportsmanship, but that's one of the many players I liked from way back when. I couldn't think of any others right off the bat. LOL!

I never saw Ty Cobb play (of course), but the impression I got from Ken Burn's documentary is that he had poor sportsmanship. Class goes a long way with me, stats aside. Miguel, besides a few alcohol fueled incidents , seems to be a classy player, always chatting with opposing players, a good guy in the clubhouse, not a big mouth to the media, stuff like that.

I honestly couldn't pick an all time favorite Tiger either. Too much of Tiger's history was before my time, or before I picked up the baseball bug ('04), so I don't know who is worthy.

Why Putkonen? Are you related to him?

I used to like Nook Logan, he was my Tiger. I was super bummed when he lost his job to the newcomer Curtis Granderson. Wow, I was so wrong.

I also liked Fu Te Ni, just because I thought his name is neat. He wasn't very good though.

I can't name a favorite Tiger so many are good, but there is always a least favorite Tiger for me. Lets see, they got rid of Raburn, who was it for a long while. Now I'm kind of scratching my head (especially after yesterday's meltdown in the first inning) why Porcello is a Tiger?

I have posters of Ivan Rodriguez, Magglio Ordonez, and Miguel Cabrera on the wall, can't find a good Prince Fielder one yet.

Well- now that the WBC is over, I hope I can see more about our Tigers. We should be loaded this year and I'm hoping the new TBC will get us scoring more runs instead of just holding up a giant stop sign at 3rd all the time.

I really think that Berry has been moving up my Tiger ladder. Boesch is still my favorite though.

Jhonny Peralta and Brayan Villarreal!

Though honestly, deep down... Armando will always be my Tiger.

I have a soft spot for catchers (probably because as a child I played catcher in softball) and I'm thrilled about Alex Avila. He has been a beast this season. I believe he is my Tiger. He's the player I get really geeked about seeing each game.

I enjoy having Avila on our team because he doesn't make excuses or get overly "up" or "down" about a game- he just shows up and does his job, day in and day out.

I have to agree. Alex Avila has been incredible. He takes a beating and just keeps on ticking. Hits for power and average. Good defensively. Great attitude. Rapidly becoming one of the best catchers in baseball.

Alex Avila. The guy is in his 2nd full year, batting .302 with 15 homers, and 61 RBI from the catchers position, and was an All Star. Many of our other All-Stars were questionable, but he is way above any other catcher, and he is still young. Just a professional baseball player.

Boesch is a great choice. Every time he's at the plate, I find myself thinking that something exciting can happen. BUT, my answer would be--all time: Mickey Lolich, 2011: Magglio.

Boesch would probably be my favorite but I love Martinez, Avlia, and Cabrera. We've got such an awesome lineup it makes it hard to choose just one.

Inge has been my favorite for several years. He always gets an A for effort. I like Boesch a lot too though. Cabrera ticked me off last year but it looks like he has turned his life around.

Verlander and Boesch- the kid is a freaking beast with that bat!

Agreed- still bummed over losing Granderson. As a father's day present to my husband, I redid his bathroom in a Detroit Tigers theme and have a framed picture of Granderson on the wall from one of the games we went to.

And can we please discuss last night's game- intentionally walking Inge to make the bases loaded with only one out (what??!) to have GUILLEN come up to bat only to have a lousy hit and allow the Mets get a double play??? Yuck.

Magglio has been a fave for me since we got him, and I have always been a fan of Brandon Inge, and I am really like Boesch(sp?), he has been pretty impressive lately. Verlander is definitely the fave pitcher!!!

I am still missing Curtis Granderson, unfortunately

I'd have to say Magglio O. - however, I've always been a fan of Johnny D. back when he was with the Sox & Yanks, so I'm excited to see him with us this year.

Gonna be a great season - kids & I are going to see a game against the Twins in July!

Justin Verlander, Rick Porcello, Armando Galarraga, Nate Robertson just to mention a few. Our bullpen is loaded and I don't think we need to worry too much. I think our biggest loss is Placido Polanco, he was the only one who was consistent when it came to well, everything. But that's ok, this is a new season and we are going to kick some butt!

Sounds like he's getting closer to signing. They say the Tigers have cleaned out a locker for someone and it may fall into place as quickly as this weekend.

I was also serioulsy bummed to see Granderson go. He was one of my faves. I'm anxious to see what the lineup will look like for this season. I see we signed a reliever or closer, can't remember, and a bunch of young prospects this week.

They did well last night, let's hope they keep up the good work... we need a couple more games for a little bit of a cushion.
The trouble with Mags is, if he gets that added part of his contract, he isn't worth what they'll have to pay him.
