As of April 15, we will have a AA team - the Trash Pandas (raccoons - I didn't know that). Brand new stadium complete with a public swimming pool. I can't wait.

Got all the floors washed Tue, 1 Aug 2017 13:57:35 EST Favorite Memories of Tigers I have so many. I think the best would be sitting in the garage with the door open when it was raining listening to Ernie Harwell on the radio. I loved that voice! When he passed, I was already in Alabama so I couldn't get to Comerica. But I cried when I saw video of him laid out at Comerica with a Tiger hat on and the people were lined up to pay respects all around the park. <BR> <BR> Remember when the glasses come up missing on his statue? Fri, 14 Jul 2017 10:10:00 EST Have you gone to Tiger Stadium? I know it was old and in slight disrepair and I hated the obstructed-view seats. But my brother and I practically lived there growing up as part of the bleacher creatures. We sat in right field, took anyone who wanted to come along, and loved harassing the Yankee right fielder. Remember when the bleacher creatures would get so rowdy that management would stop serving beer in that section?

"She who shall remain nameless from the Lions Team page". <em>334</em> I've always been a huge football fan but the year the NFL went on strike, I found out that I like baseball too. Do I know a lot about America's Pastime? No, not really; I just know that I like to watch it and I like to go to the games. <BR> <BR> Even though we've had a lot of shake ups on our team, I still have faith that if we find that one missing piece, another power hitter and/or a pitch... Wed, 18 Feb 2015 22:48:35 EST Let's go Tigers! Woo Hoo! Tiger's win the Central for the 4th straight year! It's a great day! Sun, 28 Sep 2014 16:00:27 EST It is coming down to the wire! Wow that last loss was a heart breaker. JD's 3-run homer in the top of the 9th wiped out by bad defense in the bottom for a stunning loss. Elation to deflation in 5 minutes, that is this wonderful and awful game of baseball. <BR> <BR> I think if the Tigers miss the post-season this year I will just cry. It looks like it will come down to the series this weekend between Detroit and KC, winner takes ALL! If we can have just one more game lead on the Royals before then, a win tonight couple... Wed, 17 Sep 2014 03:58:49 EST Who will be voted Best Player in today's game? Of course, Miggy Cabbera Tue, 24 Jun 2014 14:59:40 EST Hello! Glad I found this team - I love the Tigers and have since I was a little girl! Tue, 3 Jun 2014 13:13:45 EST I really like Miguel, but... Yeah, I have had a poster of Cabrera on my wall for several years now. He joins Ivan Rodriguez and Maggio Ordonez. I think he is the best hitter on the planet, maybe the best player. <BR> <BR> I read that Detroit signed him for 10 more years for a googol dollars (that is a 1 with 100 zeros). No really, it was $292 million, the biggest MLB contract ever, but that is so much money to me that it's imaginary, like a googol or infinity dollars. <BR> <BR> Is he worth that much? I suppose he... Fri, 28 Mar 2014 11:41:25 EST Injuries keep coming...

I wish some things had happened differently in the ALCS but I am not about to criticize great management that got them there, or call for heads on platters because they did not bring home a World Series trophy. I always called that "expectation" unrealistic, and stand by that. We are not arrogant Yankees fans, after all....

Mon, 30 Sep 2013 19:55:56 EST Gates Brown Gates Brown passed away today at the age of 74. <BR> <BR> William James Brown was born on May 2, 1939. He played with the Tigers for 13 years - 1963-1975. He was the first African-American to play for the Tigers. He played outfield, first base and DH. He batted left handed and threw right handed. His lifetime average was .257. <BR> <BR> On June 19, 1963, Gates became the 11th American League player to hit a home run in his first at bat. He was best known for his pinch hitting. He h... Fri, 27 Sep 2013 18:05:40 EST Info on Individual Tigers I enjoy learning more information about each Tiger and thought it would be good to share what I've learned. <BR> <BR> Today, I googled Jose Iglesias. His full name is Jose Antonio Iglesias Aleman and he was born in Cuba on January 5, 1990. He's the first Tiger to wear the #1 since Lou Whitaker - many fans were a little upset as they believe the number should be retired. He drove in a run in his first game as a Tiger and hit a homer in his second game. Fri, 20 Sep 2013 08:54:52 EST Postseason? As tickets for home postseason (potential) games go on sale on Tuesday, I find myself wondering if Detroit will be in it. If they are, will they be team 3 or team 2? I am thinking team 3, they won't be wildcard (team 4) and have no chance of overcoming Boston in the standings. <BR> <BR> I was asked if I would like to go to an ALDS game in Detroit, I responded that the tickets were too expensive. I went to ALDS game 1 last year against the A's, but my friend bought my ticket, which was $... Sun, 15 Sep 2013 11:47:25 EST Last Home Game I got three tickets to the last home game on Sept. 22. I'm taking my boyfriend and one of my great-nieces who said she had wanted to go to a game. I've been to an opening day game (and won't go to another!), but this is the first last game that I will attend. My niece was so excited when I told her we were going. I ordered her a new shirt to wear and can't wait until it comes in so I can take it over to her. I am blessed that I am close to my nieces and nephews and their children.

Are you excited that we have so many Tigers in the game? Mon, 8 Jul 2013 09:31:37 EST Rats, I missed a game I didn't know the Wednesday game was on in the afternoon, I missed it. First time this year I haven't caught at least some of the Tigers game, usually I watch until they are getting blown away in score and shut it off and it looks like I would have done that yesterday. Oh well, I went to the lake and caught some catfish, so didn't see the later replay (if there was one) either, just checked the box score late last night. My streak is ended... Thu, 20 Jun 2013 13:09:17 EST WOO HOO!!! What a great game. Please say all of you out in Tiger's land saw it. I DVR'd it so I might have to watch that one again. <em>224</em> Sat, 4 May 2013 22:24:30 EST WOW! I saw Jim Price and Ernie Harwell call the game on TV back when Roger Clemens struck out 20 Tigers in one game (replayed on ESPN Classic), but I've never seen a game like last night while it happened, 17 strikeouts in 8 innings by Anibal Sanchez set a new Tigers franchise record. That was against a good team too (the Braves), the team Clemens fanned 20 of was not a good team. What an amazing game! Sat, 27 Apr 2013 07:39:45 EST Papa Grande I think I might be the only Tigers fan who actually liked Jose Valverde. So he had an off year, he was great before that. I am really glad he is back in Detroit and (hopefully, should they need a closer) going to play tonight. <BR> <BR> I also LIKE Jim Leyland. No, I'm not one of those guys that thinks they have to win the World Series every year to have had a successful year. I am a guy who watches all the games, and I like to see 2/3 wins instead of 1/3 (pre-Leyland). A playoff appe... Wed, 24 Apr 2013 13:05:42 EST Late games, anyone stay up? That one last Friday in Oakland that went 12 innings was the pits for me in the Eastern time zone. It was a weekend so I did stay up, it ended after 2 I think, I can't remember I was partially asleep. <BR> <BR> I really don't like the Tiger's West Coast trips, I think the game should be ending about 10pm, not starting then. I've tried using the DVR and watching them the next day but it isn't the same, I usually see or hear the score somewhere before I've had the chance to watch what I reco... Tue, 16 Apr 2013 19:26:56 EST Hello Hi, I'm Doug and I'm a huge Detroit Tigers fan. <BR> <BR> My late-grandmother introduced me to the Tigers radio feeds when I was a child, but it wasn't until I became an adult that I developed an appreciation for the game baseball. I am from Michigan so naturally my team was going to be the Tigers, unfortunately that was 2003 when I started following games and sporting my ball cap with the D. Since then I have caught almost all of the games on the TV or radio, or archived radio feeds at ML... Mon, 15 Apr 2013 01:04:21 EST Bummed The Tigers released Brennan Boesch today. I figured it was coming since he really didn't play to well last season and hasn't seemed to bounce back this season but I'm still bummed. He was my Tiger....guess it's time to find a new one. Wed, 13 Mar 2013 10:51:51 EST This is a group I had to join! I was searching through groups and saw this one and HAD to join. I miss baseball and cannot wait till April. <BR> <BR> I grew up a Reds fan - moved to MI in 2001 and became a die hard Tigers fan. I went to the Cinci-Detroit game in Cinci last summer and was rooting hard for a Tigers-Reds world Series last year... and this year too. :) Of course the Tigers need to win it all this year. <BR> <BR> My Weight loss journey is now 20 lbs in of the 105 goal...

How many days until pitchers and catchers report? lol Tue, 3 Jan 2012 09:26:09 EST Time to step it up! It's time to start cheering them on. We need some wins. We beat the Yankees we can beat Texas. <BR> <BR> Lets go Tigers! Thu, 13 Oct 2011 08:47:21 EST Let's go Tigers! What a game last night! Back to back homers in the first inning. Now it's on to Texas and we seem to do well against Texas lets hope we can sweep them and be World Series bound! Fri, 7 Oct 2011 08:45:26 EST 10 wins in a row. Another great game last night. Let's hope we keep this up. Remember 5 is now the magic number. Tue, 13 Sep 2011 08:38:34 EST Gearing up for a great month! Hi! <BR> I'm new to the team. I'm from the Detroit area. I'm ready to kick some butt this month! I was born in 1984 so hoping to see some magic this year! Thu, 8 Sep 2011 11:51:36 EST Afternoon or Evening Games? I don't think I've seen a topic about this here, and if there is one, I apologize for making another! <BR> <BR> Anyway, we have an afternoon game today which for me is great (I'm unemployed so that it gives me some exciting background noise/visuals when there is an afternoon Tigers game). I'm not sure which type of game I actually prefer, though. <BR> <BR> I think I like going to night games better as they tend to be cooler, but I've had some amazing experiences during day games as well (l... Thu, 1 Sep 2011 12:55:04 EST Dreadfully awful at introductions. Where to begin? <BR> <BR> I'm a huge Detroit Tigers fan, hence me joining this team. I was absolutely thrilled when I noticed that this team existed! Hence the explanation mark. I'm an optimistic fan who falls into the throes of depression over this team on occasion, vowing to never speak to them again, and that usually lasts all of a second. I am getting married next summer and our theme is... Detroit Tigers and baseball. Our colors are orange and navy. <BR> <BR> Anyway, I expect g... Wed, 31 Aug 2011 11:03:06 EST Game at Cleveland I am going to Ohio to see the NFL HOF, and Rock n' Roll HOF.. and then I figured that on Tuesday I would go see whoever was playing Cleveland.. and it was the what luck. I have already bought my hat, and Avila jersey.. hoping Doug Fister has another good outing. Sat, 6 Aug 2011 20:22:56 EST Inge How do you feel about the news on Inge? I have mixed emotions. I used to love Inge but lately he's been terrible. He seems to think he'll be back. Unless he really starts kicking butt in Toledo I have my doubts. What do you think? Thu, 21 Jul 2011 08:49:49 EST TGIF Thank God it's Friday and the Tigers are back!! It's been a long week without baseball. I'm ready to kick some Sox butt!! Fri, 15 Jul 2011 09:21:16 EST What Happened? We were doing so well and then head out west and start doing terrible. Time to put our rally caps on and get some wins! Wed, 22 Jun 2011 11:36:34 EST Surprised? Who else about fell out of their seat when Rayburn hit that grand slam yesterday? He is not well received in my household so it came as a great shock when he actually hit the ball. Lets hope that JL's wonderboy can actually keep it up and prove to us why he's still playing. Mon, 6 Jun 2011 10:01:03 EST Pitching What a great game last night or at least until the end. Why didn't JL take out Perry sooner? Come on!! he walked three guys in a row before he hit the batter. Over all we are looking a lot better, but our pitching still tends to make me nervous. Maybe it's time to move some guys up from Toledo and move some of these so called relief pitchers and closers down to do a little more training. Tue, 10 May 2011 12:31:45 EST Nobody's Perfect Anyone see that May 16th Armando Galarraga and Jim Joyce have a book coming out? <BR> That just may be an interesting purchase- I'll see what the Kindle price is on it when it comes out. Fri, 6 May 2011 09:05:50 EST The new season Spring training is here, what do you all think of the team so far? <BR> Fri, 25 Mar 2011 09:28:20 EST Well? Another Spring Training starting and I'm wondering how we think it's gonna go... <BR> <BR> Also, what are your thoughts about the whole mess with M.C.?

I am thrilled to have found this SparkTeam. I've been a huge Tiger fan for nearly 50 years. I take my Tigers really seriously. It's nice to find others who do so, as well. Living in southern California, I don't run into many other Tiger fans. Now I really feel connected!

I always remember '87 when the Tiges were considered done yet ended up in the Playoffs. Until we're mathmatically eliminated I say route on! Sun, 5 Sep 2010 22:53:03 EST Another nail bitter Is it just me or is becoming stressful watching our beloved Tigers? It was great seeing some of our former boys last night but I was starting to really sweat it at the end. <BR> Once again I ask what has happened to them since the All-Star break? I know we won but there at the end the walks almost killed us! Tue, 17 Aug 2010 08:35:58 EST Great game last night. We went to the game last night and what fun! They scored in the 1st and second and then again. We had to count on a couple of White Sox errors, but we got the job done. Of course this was after a 12-2 beating earlier in the day. <BR> <BR> I don't have a lot of hope for the season, but I am just trying to enjoy them when I can. My father, a huge Tiger fan, will fly in today and we will go to this Friday's game against the Angels. We are going to eat at the Tiger Club, so that will make... Wed, 4 Aug 2010 10:31:19 EST All-Star Break Why does it seem that the Tigers always lose momentum after the all-star break??? C'mon Tigers... let's get our roar back on!!! Tue, 20 Jul 2010 21:04:29 EST Home Run Derby Who watched it. I was a little nervous at first after Inge's stellar performance last year but MC pulled it out nicely! Hopefully our boys do well at tonight's game. I've been really happy this year with finally having a closer. Jose Valverde is the first closer we've had that I don't have to watch between my fingers. Watching Jones and Rodney pitch and blow our win was just too much. <BR> Have a great day!

Our boy, Zumaya done pulled something again and it is NOT looking too good. Let's huddle together and give our reliever some prayers and good positive vibes! <em>220</em> <em>300</em> <em>129</em> Tue, 29 Jun 2010 01:20:52 EST Boesch Who else is impressed with the way this season is going? I have to say I'm really liking Brennan Boesch. When they first brought him up I saw the line up and was like who the heck is that! Now I know. He's know your doing well when they intentionally walk you! I think he may be one of my new favorite Tigers! Mon, 21 Jun 2010 09:21:19 EST introducing myself as the newest tiger fan hello my name is cyndi and ive always been a tigers fan but im new here in sparkpeople teams!!! Mon, 14 Jun 2010 08:25:26 EST Ernie... Ernie Harwell has passed... I'd like everyone to share a memory of him if you would. <BR> <BR> Mine is sitting on the back steps while my dad was putting an addition on our house listening to Ernie on the radio. <BR> <BR> What an amazing man and an amazing life- thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Wed, 5 May 2010 10:32:26 EST Hello All! I am John, living in NW Ohio and a lifelong Tigers Fan. I'm not nearly as addicted to sports as I was way back in my youth, and the Tigers are still tops. Also being close to Toledo we get to see many future or rehabbing Tigers. <BR> <BR> I did make it to 4 games last year, two in Toronto at the beginning of the season (work travel isn't all bad) and a couple through the year at Comerica - each the 3rd game in an Indians Sweep ;-) <BR> <BR> However, I'm here to help get focused on health ... Thu, 14 Jan 2010 12:47:12 EST Fire Sale What is your opinion on the fire sale the Tigers seem to be having? Is there someone on the list you'd like to keep? Is there someone not on the list that you'd like to see on the list? Thu, 12 Nov 2009 09:23:25 EST I will cheer for anyone but the Yankees! ACH! Come on Angels. I can't believe how many runners were left on base last night!!! For both teams! Sun, 18 Oct 2009 09:11:09 EST Whats your opinion on these Tiger sub plots? <BR> Washburn do you think he will ever pick it up? <BR> I hope so, but since he has been a Tiger he has not been good at all. I don't think he even has a win yet. I was excited about getting him and he is proving so far to be false hope. <BR> <BR> Aubrey Huff I wasn't so high on him I wasn't sure if he was going to be good or not with the batting avg he had but the rbi's gave me some hope. He started off slow but seems to be picking it up at the right time so thats is promising. <BR> <... Thu, 3 Sep 2009 11:58:13 EST Aubrey Huff your thoughts....... <BR> While he doesn't have the best average(.253) he does have more RBIs than most if not all the Tigers (72). I am not sold on him because of his average but given the fact he has so many RBIs that we he does hit it is with runners in scoring position which is what we lack. I am hoping he can help us get over the edge but I am still a little skeptical. Tue, 18 Aug 2009 10:37:53 EST Trouble with Red Sox Can you believe what happened last night? What a crazy game! <em>300</em> <BR> <BR> I don't believe Porcello hit Youkilis on purpose. Just by his reaction on the mound after it happened (before he got attacked), it seemed like he couldn't believe he lost the ball the way he did. And then to lose him...what a horrible call. <BR> <BR> What do you think will happen tonight? Retaliation? <BR> I'm sure the umpires will have firm warning for both teams. <em>28</em> <BR> <BR> It WILL be an ... Wed, 12 Aug 2009 11:35:42 EST Washburn Trade What do you think of the Washburn trade? <BR> <BR> I think it makes us a better team and gives us a much better chance to win the division. I don't think it increases our chances to win in the playoffs due to our lack of run production. <BR> <BR> I think we will be able to beat the mediocre/weak teams in the league but struggle against the teams with good pitching. <BR> <BR> I also thought they did a good job not having to get rid of Porcello Mon, 3 Aug 2009 12:30:20 EST Home run Derby How many people tuned in to watch the homerun derby last night? I felt so bad for my boy Inge. I wish he would have hit at least one. <BR> How many people are watching the all star game tonight. I already have my DVR set for it. <em>224</em> <em>300</em> Tue, 14 Jul 2009 09:15:32 EST What is it about them Tigers? What is it that makes the Tigers your favorite? Is it a certain player's talent? Is it Leyland's attitude? Is it the roar of the tiger at Commerica when our boys hit a home run? <BR> <BR> For me, it's the team work. They all play together as a team, with and for eachother. That's what makes them great, win or lose.

It's a great way to keep up with the day to day of the team. Stats, pitching matchups, guests, etc. Plus you get a little bit of interesting Tigers trivia. You can find it listed in iTunes as The Detroit Tigers Podcast or go to the website, Tue, 21 Apr 2009 13:17:19 EST New here Hi I'm new here. I live in Northern Michigan and I've been a Tigers fan all my life. My all time favorite Tiger is Ty Cobb. My current Favorites are Polanco and Inge. <em>300</em> Tue, 14 Apr 2009 11:59:53 EST The New Season The new season starts in 10 days. I'm looking forward to it. It's been a long time since I watched baseball. Fri, 27 Mar 2009 21:50:31 EST Verlander Hey, did ya'll see that the Tigers and Verlander have reached an agreement? Tue, 3 Feb 2009 20:36:58 EST Hey Tiger Fans I see that Detroit has signed Rodney and Thames for one year contracts. I was hoping they would get a closer this off season, maybe they will yet, I don't think I can another year of Rodney. Thames is OK, occasionally he comes through. Can't wait for spring training to start, wish I could be in Florida for the season. Have a great day! Thu, 15 Jan 2009 10:59:37 EST Hey Tiger Fans Hi, I am new to Sparkpeople and new to this team. How excited I was to see a Tiger Fan Team. I have been a Tiger fan my whole life, there were a few years when I was raising my girls that I hardly had time to turn around let alone watch a game, now that they are grown and on their own my husband and I have gotten back into baseball. We went to New York and Kansas City last year to see them play. It was right nice of them to win both series. It was great! This year I am planning on Cle... Mon, 12 Jan 2009 07:18:57 EST Kind of new tigers fan I remember as a kid watching the Tigers win in 84. Then I didn't watch baseball for a long time. <BR> <BR> Went to my first Tigers game last summer (never made it to Tigers Stadium) and recently went to another game when my daughter won a chance to take the field through Big Boy. She got to meet her Tiger (Curtis Granderson) and got an autographed baseball from him. Her and my hubby talk sports a lot (she is 8 and learning quick) So I need to learn some to keep up. I learn alot about D... Thu, 31 Jul 2008 17:37:03 EST Nice Series.. That series was refreshing.. to see the Tiger's at their best. <BR> I'm just hoping that they didn't score all their runs for the rest of the month .. and that they've got more coming for the next series.. <BR> Way to go Tigs! Thu, 24 Jul 2008 08:42:35 EST Second Half of the season! Who's pumped for the 2nd half of the season? <BR> After the start we had, i would have never thought we would be .500 at the break, but here we are, we can only get better... here's to making the playoffs! :)) <BR> Go TIGS! Thu, 17 Jul 2008 13:27:28 EST any one see the game down 6 and we pulled it off what a game go tigers <BR> bring on Minnstiona (sp) Thu, 10 Jul 2008 08:18:55 EST Tigers are doing great! The games have been great to watch! I am so glad Zumaya is back!! Mon, 7 Jul 2008 18:35:01 EST the tigers we won 6 in a row wow we won 6 serries a change for 7 if we win today i hope we do it let go tigers Wed, 2 Jul 2008 08:00:46 EST Graduation Part 2 We just got back from Our son's graduation from Marine Basic Training. I want to thank everyone for their well wishes and support. It is just amazing how in just 13 weeks to be able to see so many changes in him. Not only to see him go from 185lbs to 146, but the tremendous growth in maturity, and attitude. I sent the Marines a young man not more than a boy that I was already proud of, but I get back a man to be even more proud of. Sat, 14 Jun 2008 04:48:02 EST Graduation I can't believe that it has been 13 weeks, but my son Brian graduates from Basic Training on Friday. He was finally able to call us Sunday to let us know that he passed the Crucible, and was now a Marine. He seemed very happy and proud. My wife and I can't wait to get down there for graduation. After that he gets a 10 day leave. Also he will be assigned to the recruiting office for 2 weeks. That means he'll be home for 24 days. <BR> <BR> John <BR> Tue, 10 Jun 2008 05:48:10 EST Great game last night I'm sooooo glad we won. Mon, 2 Jun 2008 11:26:59 EST Helping to Restore the Roar Hello everyone my name is sande1221. It is a pleasure to Roar on our Detroit Tigers. I Looking forward to another great season. Mon, 26 May 2008 19:17:26 EST what wrong w the team what wrong losing too much Sat, 17 May 2008 09:54:20 EST Are We Losing Faith Already?! I noticed no one has posted anything in awhile. Are we losing faith in the Tigers already in the season?! So they are not doing so great; I STILL love them and am going to support them no matter what! <BR> <BR> Is anyone else with me on that???? Sun, 11 May 2008 20:15:48 EST all star team Everyone needs to vote for the all-star team.You can write in a player, I'm writing in Brandon Inge. <em>300</em> Wed, 7 May 2008 08:32:35 EST Great Sweep! What a great sweep the Tigers had in NY!! I think the news said it was the first time Detroit had did that at Yankee Stadium in 42 years!! That is pretty exciting!! Fri, 2 May 2008 20:26:58 EST hey everyone 3 questions here will tigers ever sorce 20 and how many wins and will they make the playoffs Go Tigers! Thu, 24 Apr 2008 16:28:37 EST HOME RUN did anyone else see how pissed that pitcher was!! I loved it! Thu, 24 Apr 2008 14:57:18 EST Clete Thomas Does anyone else absolutely love this rookie? He is one heck of a player.. and he's certainly more than welcome to stay in the D. :) Not to mention, pretty darned attractive! lol <BR> But, i'm pulling for win number ONE today at the Red Sox... <BR> I know i'm dissapointed in the start this year, but there is absolutely NOTHING that beats a summer of ball games at Comerica Park.. I LOVE it there! :) Tue, 8 Apr 2008 09:37:53 EST Injuries Are you surprised or discourged by all the injuries we have already? Do you think it's a sign of how the rest of the season is going to be? <BR> <BR> I don't think it will be a lingering problem, it's the beginning of the season and there are bound to be some minor injuries since everyone is just getting back into. Sun, 6 Apr 2008 08:02:22 EST 0-5 Obviously we're all a little disappointed and surprised. Who would have thought that we'd be 0-5 at home? <BR> <BR> I think the pitchers have done a pretty good job, we just need to get our bats going. Maybe getting out on the road will do that for them. <BR> <BR> Sun, 6 Apr 2008 07:58:04 EST A 3rd Generation Tiger Fan My grandfather was a big Tiger fan and my Dad followed his lead. I think I have it in my "genes" and am a follower, too. I was a tad disappointed by their opening day loss (but would have loved to be able to go see the game!) but they have a solid team this year and I think they will do well. Regardless of their wins or losses I am with them all the way! I love Pudge R but I have been keeping an eye on Guillaume (not sure if I spelled it right) as he has seemed to blossom in the last couple s...

Tickets went on sale Saturday. I waited in the virtual waiting room for about 1 hour and 45 min. Had other things I wanted to do that day so I took off. We didn't try again until about 7 or 8 Sat. night and basically we couldn't get any Fri/Sat/Sun tickets. Seats were either really crappy, SRO or sold out. So....we settled for 2 of the Thur. games, against CWS and Tro. I'm a little disappointed, but that's what I get for wanting to go shopping. LOL! Tue, 4 Mar 2008 10:22:07 EST Granderson, woo hoo! Yes, Granderson signs a five year contract and stays a tiger. Good news! I loved watching Curtis when he played here in T-town for the Hens. I am so glad he is staying with the tigers.

Sat, 26 Jan 2008 13:09:18 EST new to the team I have watched the tigers since i was a little girl and have always been a fan. I know the basic of baseball but keeping up with the players stats and all that i don't. I have never been able to keep those straight. Hope to talk to you later. Wed, 23 Jan 2008 22:54:38 EST Ouch! Cabrerra contract might... Ok, let me say, I have nothing agains Cabrerra per say, it is just that I watched Brandon come up through the hens, and have definate affinity for him. W <BR> <BR> With this Cabrerra contract, he is likely to REALLY be on the trading block, OH NO! I realize this is coming from my feelings for Brandon, but darn it all, he was here through the VERY LEAN years. Sun, 20 Jan 2008 09:37:56 EST Tiger pitchers Ok, now I am a bit disturbed. I saw a salary list of Tiger pitchers, Robertson just signed for $7 million. The highest paid pitcher is $8 million and Verlander is getting just over $1 million. <BR> <BR> Sorry, I don't think Nate is worth more than Justin. I realize Justin will be a free agent next year, but still! This is not right. Fri, 18 Jan 2008 18:48:27 EST I'm a new fan Hi all, <BR> I'n new to spark and I've only been a basball fan for 1 and 1/2 seasons. I think I watched every game last year and I went to two. I love basball and especially the DETROIT TIGERS!! <BR> <BR> My boyfriend loves that we can have a 45 min conversation about the roster. LOL <BR> <BR> Shelly Thu, 17 Jan 2008 10:47:36 EST Robertson, yes/no? Well, Robertson got an extension. I am not sure how I feel about that. He had good numbers and got little bat support last year, but I wonder if someone else might contribute more. <BR> <BR> What do others think? <BR> <BR> <em>24</em> Thu, 17 Jan 2008 10:12:32 EST Tigers Caravan Tour The Tiger's caravan tour will be January 13th -14th.

I am new to Sparks and this group and I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Melissa and I was born and raised in Michigan - I have been a lifelong Tigers fan! Fri, 4 Jan 2008 23:20:51 EST Huge Tiger Fan Hey! <BR> <BR> I have been a huge Tiger fan for more than 15 years. I live in Toledo, but had season tickets for Mud Hens, which is how I became a Tiger fan. I followed the Mud Hen's to the Tigers. <BR> <BR> I love the Tigers and watched them in the lean years. <BR> <BR> <em>244</em> Sun, 30 Dec 2007 22:05:34 EST Hi from Metro Detroit Sparks I just wanted to invite everyone to the meeting our team has planned.

What a bummer this week has been for the Tigers, after last week's 'nearly there!' playing and winning, it's back to prayers on the ball field. I hate watching so much of Boston and New York, just to see the little half games and lucky shots and bought players throw us out of the run for division and wild card. <BR> <BR> Tired of small victories from Casey Blake and Grady Sizemore and that darn catcher - maybe we should just trade for them. Oh and Hafner just makes me mad. I have to admit t...

Those kids are good, the pitching is terrific. <em>300</em> Mon, 20 Aug 2007 10:49:10 EST Tigers win Did anyone see that Grand Slam last night? Way to go boys.Tigers rule <em>244</em> Fri, 17 Aug 2007 14:09:32 EST New Just found this team I love the Tigers, All the Detroit sports team including the Lions. Mon, 13 Aug 2007 12:52:46 EST Out of a slump Thank goodness for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. We needed a win pretty badly last night. <BR> <BR> Just checking to see how everyone is doing. I seem to have hit a platuea and its kind of frustrating. The fact that I'm running farther and faster keeps me going. <BR> <BR> Hope everyone is having a great day! Tue, 7 Aug 2007 07:18:53 EST Who's Your Tiger? It's so hard to pick just one. Maggs is having a steller year, Sheffield has finally come around and made an impact on our team, and Granderson is so quick, he's got to break the record for most triples in a season. <BR> I'd have to say my Tiger is Brandon Inge. He struggled a bit at the beginning of the year, but he's just been a team player, a quiet one too, not much recognition. He's got a great arm at 3B, has done great since the transition from catching, and has weathered the storm wh... Fri, 15 Jun 2007 11:19:57 EST
