    Good job on the line-up to Gardy. The top 7 should be comparable to any team in the league. Hopefully this team will at least score some runs and play decent defense.
    Do or do not. There is no try.

    Yeah, not a lot of complaints about that lineup. I don't like Florimon starting but ah, whatever. Gardy wasn't exactly given a plethora of options to run out at short...

    It'll be a problem that takes care of itself when Florimon proves to be the best defensive shortstop of all time.

    I heard he's going to take the field performing double back-flips just to how Ozzie how it's done.

    Hell yes about the lineup. This is *exactly* how I would construct it. That is the first time I have ever said that on opening day at least in the Mauer era.

    Usually, I'm happy when I merely dislike Gardy's lineups. To be neutral on a lineup is a huge win for me.

    To see a lineup that's just about ideal, well... That doesn't happen very often.

    I'm glad Dozier isn't batting 2nd. He was apparently pressing last year and doesn't need added the pressure of filling a spot in the batting order that is above his capability. Batting Mauer at #2 makes a lot more sense than Dozier at #2 and Parmelee at #8.

    Delmon Young!! Hehehehe, just seeing that name gives me hope the Tigers might choke (I know he isn't with them anymore, but any team willing to take him on isn't the brightest)

    Stat question

    Sorry - can't figure it out, so help me. I see the stat line on everyone, above, and I get that it is GP, AB, R, H, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, (mystery stat), BB, SO, SB, AVG, OBP, SLG, OPS, WAR. So what's the mystery number?

    Stay warm out there today, kids. High of 37 with a windchill pushing it lower. Eek.

    Brock, I'm assuming these series previews will be a recurring theme. Since I prefer not to ever leave TD, could you add game times and broadcast info with the pitching matchups?

    Will do. I had to piece this one together in a rush, as I forgot to do it over the weekend. I'll be sure to add those elements to future updates.

    Did you glance at who the Twins are playing today?

    OK, Detroit is only better from 1-6, not 7.

    When you're at least willing to spend money to win championships, a dumb move or two won't kill you. And even in Delmon's case, the dumb move of acquiring him paid off in the playoffs, Young improbably has the record for the most Tiger post-season HRs.

    Come on, I'd certainly take Mauer over Torii and I'd call Dirks/Plouffe a coin flip (neither is established, but have flashed skills).

    That'd still be...
    1 - Tigers
    2 - Twins
    3 - Tigers
    4 - Tigers
    5 - Tigers
    6 - Flip it
    7 - Twins

    [sad face]
