Re: 2018 Detroit Tigers

My gut feeling is Cabrera lacks rapport with many of his teammates. :eek Wow, that's diametrically opposed to what I'm hearing from both the players in interviews and the media. You might want to take a swig of Pepto for that gut feeling. :razz I agree they're a better offensive team with a healthy...

How 'bout "Jerry Booth's Funhouse" on CKLW,Channel 9?
Watched it EVERY afternoon after school! He showed my drawing of Clyde Casual the purple moose (actually a deer buck from the prop room, but this was black & white TV). "UH-HUH!!!"

Re: 2018 Detroit Tigers

Aaaaaaannnnndddd...down goes Miggy. As much as I’ve enjoyed Miggy’s tenure in Detroit (at least the early part of it), this is exhibit A on why I hate long-term deals, especially when the deal covers after the age of 30. I'm not happy to see Miggy go down again, but perhaps it's a blessing as it ma...

Anyone remember when CKLW/CBET actually ran real cartoons back in the day? You probably remember Popeye, but he wasn't the only one. Back between 1958-1962, CKLW brought Windsor and Detroit the Huckleberry Hound , Quick Draw McGraw and Yogi Bear Show s, which were among Hanna-Barbera's first cartoo...

Re: Verlander and J.D. Martinez

[Max Scherzer] is amazing and was treated unfairly by Mike Ilitch. I recall Scherzer getting a generous offer from the Tigers before he bolted for an ungodly lifetime contract. How many >$20 million-a-year players can a mid-market team sustain? You can say what you want about his pizza, but Ilitch ...

Verlander and J.D. Martinez

Don't look now, but both of 'em are bucking for league MVP in the early going. :eek

Through 5/30:
Verlander -- 7-2 W-L with a 1.11 ERA and 0.713 WHIP (Bob Gibson of '68 type numbers!)
Martinez -- .322 BA with 18 HR and 47 RBI, 1.042 OPS

Re: Need advice for what to do with evil house sparrows

I hear ya, Justice! "Bully birds" is the perfect description. I stopped putting up a bird feeder because of them. Though their flocks tend to be somewhat seasonal just like the grackles and starlings (another European import), I've noticed that the occasional appearance of our local Cooper's hawk se...

Radio has the slimest sales culture nationally. They're like used insurance salesmen.
Is that supposed to read "slimmest" or "slimiest"?
And "used insurance salesmen"? :lol I never knew you could buy used insurance; is it cheaper?

Re: Van Gundy fired as Pistons GM & coach

The thing about the NBA is that a team can turn it around in a hurry, not necessarily 3-5 years. I'm not a guy who can toss out specific examples but in a sport that only puts 5 guys on the floor its easier on paper to turn things around. especially considering what one or two superstars can do to ...

Mark my words - if Van Gundy had drafted Mitchell instead of Kennard, he'd still have a job today.
