I’m interested in getting your insight into this query: The Braves released Tom Glavine yesterday. Now, I know he’s coming off an injury and he’s up there in years, but he’s also a 300-game winner, a lefty, and a future Hall-of-Famer who probably wouldn’t cost that much to sign. Is anyone else at least intrigued by the possibility?
Well, now the Tigers have dug themselves a big, big hole in this series, and it’ll take some extraordinary effort to get out of it (Though, as I said, I never really had high hopes for this series in the first place). Dontrelle Willis’s four starts have been wobbly, really good, okay, and then terrible (in that order). It’ll be a monumental task for him to shut the Red Sox down, because they’ll definitely be patient with him. Tim Wakefield gets the start for Boston. That’s kind of a crapshoot, because either the knuckleball will work or it won’t. If it’s not working, the Tigers are gonna hit some balls hard somewhere. If it is working, it’s gonna be a long day, and not in the good sense. Hopefully, the knuckleball is not working and the Tigers can put up a bunch of runs early, because I go to work at four o’clock and spending five hours not knowing the outcome is gonna suck. Speaking of “suck,” that pretty much described the Tigers’ record on Thursdays (1-5). Your Mood Music for this afternoon: Well, Aerosmith is my friend's favorite band, and they're from Boston, so I guess I'll use them. And since it's Dontrelle Willis and Tim Wakefield are starting, there is the potential for a lot of walks in this game, so "Walk This Way" is probably the most fitting song (I used the Aerosmith/Run DMC version because I like that version better than the original).
