Is it just me or is that Detroit lineup... unimpressive?


Not as deep, as it has been in years past. That Cabrerra guy is supposed to be okay though...

Especially when it's right after a full moon.

Nope, not just you. Miggy and Victor and pretty much nuthin else...even Kinsler doesn't scare me much. They're getting by on starting pitching, even with Verlander struggling.

Yeah, it was just vaccines and heartworm test, because I don't give her heartworm meds all year, seeing as how we only see the 70s every 8 months. She's 8 years old now, but the vet says she looks 5, so I'm doing something right.

Glad to hear that. Even the vaccines scare me a little, though. My vet got a new partner (wife) and all of a sudden they became much more intent on profits, etc. and recommended a whole new regime with a wider variety of vaccines. My dog was so lethargic for 2 days afterward i thought I was going to have to take her in -- very scary.

Since then, I insist on just the basics.

I just choose to rarely take them to the vet. My last dog made it till 16 and my current one is 9, so I'm doing something right.

Despite his season ending injury I maintain I'd still rather have Fielder than Kinsler in my opening day lineup.

Yep, she's a-diving tonight. Too many pitches in the first inning, but t least he's through the tough part of the lineup.

In other news, Mauer looked like he had no chance against Smyly. You can see why he's 1 for 10 lifetime, 1-11 now.

I agree, but corners of Cabrerra and Fielder aren't pretty. kinsler brings a solid 2b with some speed... trade made since for both teams.

How great would it be to have Pino in the bullpen instead of Guerrier or Burton?

I thought Dombrowski did a good job of getting Miggy back to 1st B. Didn't seem like he was going to age all that well at 3rd.

So apparently Dozier's back was already achy (d*mn that turf) before Wednesday's game. And then he had the collision.

Can only hope for rapid improvement I guess.

Mine spends a lot of time running around the wilds of northern Wisconsin when we go to the cabin, so we Front Line her. She always get's really lethargic the day we dose her, which is disconcerting.

Or in the rotation instead of Correia or Deduno.

That's Smyly's problem against right handed batters...too many taters. I didn't think it would be Escobar that would get him first, but atta kid Eduardo!
