Twins Topple Tigers 10-5

The Minnesota Twins evidently forgot that Detroit's Comerica Park is supposed to be a pitcher's paradise. The Twins pounded six Tiger pitchers for 15 hits, including six home runs, en route to knocking off MLB's last undefeated team 10-5. Craig Monroe led the Tiger 9-hit attack with a solo home run,...

Tigers-Twins Barnburner in Progress at Comerica Park

The Minnesota Twins, on the strength of five home runs, lead the surprising Detroit Tigers 8-5 after six innings. Although the Twins appear to have the upper hand for the moment, the Tigers closed a 6-0 gap in the top half of the 3rd inning to a single run margin of 6-5 by the end of the 4th full...

Texas 12 Anaheim 4

Why in the world is a lifelong Detroit Tiger fan leading off with an AL West score. Simple. Until yesterday the Anaheim Angels were MLB's only other undefeated team. That's right! My lowly Tigers, given a snowball's chance by only the most devout of the faithful, sit atop all of MLB with 2004's lone... Sign in to see full entry.

Tigers Win Fourth Straight!

Steve Colyer yield a two-run homer before shutting the door on Minnesota in the top of the ninth at Detroit's Comerica Park. The loss dropped Minnesota into a tie for second with the Cleveland Indians in the AL Central. The Tigers sit atop the division by two games with a perfect 4-0 record.... Sign in to see full entry.

"It ain't over till its over" -- Y. Berra

The Detroit Tigers, sparked by Alex Sanchez's lead-off homer, scored four runs in their half of the sixth inning to take a brief 4-3 lead over the Minnesota Twins. Minnesota scored once in the top of the seventh inning to tie the game at 4-4. Then all hell broke loose. With two out and no one one,... Sign in to see full entry.

Tigers Sport Best AL Record

This is what I've been waiting for, my Tigers off to a 3-0 start and half a game ahead of the 2-0 Anaheim Angels, MLB's only other undefeated team at the moment. It may be a fleeting moment. As I type the Tigers are trailing Minnesota 3-0 in the top sixth in their home opener. Its possible they may... Sign in to see full entry.

Good News, Bad News

The Detroit Tigers beat Toronto 7-3 to (gasp!) place themselves atop the AL Central with a 2-0 start. All-Star DH Dmitri Young suffered a broken leg in a first inning run-down that will have him out of the lineup for at least six weeks. The rejuvenated Tigers have their first 2-0 start in 18 years,... Sign in to see full entry.

Tigers Win! Tech Loses!

That’s right, in my own private world, an opening day win by the Detroit Tigers takes precedence over the men’s NCAA championship game. Now if it had been UNC going for all the marbles instead of Georgia Tech, I might have rearranged the order of my subject line. Tech stood one chance against UConn.... Sign in to see full entry.

UConn and...Georgia Tech?

Who wudda thunk it? Come on now. Fess up. How many of you even picked Tech for the Elite Eight, much less the Final Four? Who really thought any ACC team besides Duke could make it to the title game? And how many of you think the real championship game was UConn-Duke, with Monday just a formality... Sign in to see full entry.

But I can't afford a baseball encyclopedia!

Yeah, they’re expensive. I’ve paid up to $50 to get a current one and had to survive on peanut butter and crackers for two weeks to cover my habit. No more!

Yankees Lose Opener

Move over Final Four, you’ve got some competition for headlines. Major League Baseball is underway. It may be just a two-day stand in Tokyo, but the games between the mighty Yankees and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays count. And the Bronx Bombers are in last place! Tampa Bay kicked their butts 8-3 in the... Sign in to see full entry.

Damn, I'm glad I'm too poor to bet on sports these days!

Like most everyone else, my brackets are a shambles. Two of the teams that I thought had a good shot to get hot and go at least as far as the Final Four, the Maryland Terrapins and my own beloved UNC Tar Heels, didn't even survive round two. A third favorite of mine for this tournament field, the N.... Sign in to see full entry.

Heels Win! Bring on Texas!

Of course, Texas might kick our butts. But I saw signs of hope that Roy Williams is finally getting all that talent he inherited from Matt Doherty to jell as a team. The Tar Heels have frustrated me all season long. They have tons of talent in their first seven players. Talent alone inspired the... Sign in to see full entry.

March Madness Is Here

The field of 65 has already been trimmed to 64 by the play-in game. Its prediction time. The winner, the NCAA Champion will be: The University of North Carolina Tar Heels Did you expect anything else from a lifelong Carolina fan who has predicted a championship every year since 1957?

Growler's team is still alive!

Sigh...my Heels are not. They fell victim to a last-second basket after a stirring comeback in the second half. So its Georgia Tech that advances to a re-match with Duke in the semifinals of the ACC Tournament. Growler's Terps edged Wake Forest 87-86 via a heads up intentional free throw miss at the...

The ACC Tournament is the best of them all!

If there was any doubt, yesterday's first round game should have erased it. A good Virginia team had to go to OT to down a scrappy bottom of the batch Clemson squad, 83-79. Clemson, with nothing on the line except pride, gave a good account of themselves and has to wait till next year for possible... Sign in to see full entry.

2nd, 3rd, 4th -- pick a spot and plug in the Tigers.

This is as close as I could get to what Detroit's season may look like based on projected stats of the players most likely to receive the bulk of the playing time available in 2004. I would prefer to think the numbers indicate a 2nd place finish, of course. Some might argue, based on last year's... Sign in to see full entry.

Tigers win two and lose one.

Where has the time gone? It seems like just a few minutes ago I was promising to consider outside observations and the possibility that they would temper my expectations for the Tigers this season. Next thing you know, they've got three exhibition games under their belt. I've got a lot of catching... Sign in to see full entry.

The Heels are in!

Lady Luck, the emotion of senior day, revenge, superior talent prevails, call it what you will the UNC Tar Heels sealed an invite to The Big Dance with a convincing 69-53 home win over the Clemson University Tigers.

One more W.

That's all my beloved UNC Tar Heels need to convince me that they deserve a berth in the NCAA Tournament Field. They got one of the two I felt they needed by dodging a bullet and beating North Carolina State in Raleigh yesterday. It went right down to the wire and ended up with us getting a win more...
