On Monday, the Tigers beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-3. The winning pitcher for Detroit was Charlie Furbush? Andy Dirks hit his first career homer too?
Detroit has guys like Dirks & Furbush(Do you think kids made fun of this dude's name growing up?) in the lineup because their disabled list continues to grow.
Furbush got his first big league win because Phil Coke sprained his ankle yesterday.
Carlos Guillen and Joel Zumaya are DL lifers! Magglio Ordonez and Brad Thomas are probably going to be back in late June.
You have to give the Tigers credit cuz they always manage to bring-up young guys who can play ball...Will Rhymes, Danny Worth, Brennan Boesch, Don Kelly, Ryan Raburn, Casper Wells and Clete Thomas have kept Detroit rollin'.
Tigers vs Rays tonight at 7:05.
Justin Verlander congratulates Charlie Furbush on his Major League debut...
The Cleveland Indians continue to dominate the Boston Red Sox.
Asdrubal Cabrera hit a double in the 8th inning to beat Boston 3-2.
The Tribe had a 3-game sweep against Boston at the beginning of April.
The Red Sox play two more games in Cleveland before visiting Detroit for a 4-game series against the Tigers.
Cleveland vs Boston tonight at 7:05.
Right now, these guys are a force to be reckoned with...
WTF is going on with the Minnesota Twins?
On Monday the Twins blew a 3-run lead to lose 8-7 to the Seattle Mariners!
The Twins are already 15 1/2 games out of first in the AL Central!!
Justin Morneau and Joe Mauer haven't exactly been tearin' it up...
But the Twins have one cat on their roster who I've ALWAYS liked...
Thome returned from missing 19 games on the DL and cranked two homers yesterday.
Jimbo smacked #592 & #593. He's 7 dingers away from the big 600 homer club.
To put that into perpective - there's only 7 guys ahead of Thome in career home runs - and three of them cheated their way there...
The three weasels: No. 1 - Barry Bonds at 762 homers, No. 6 - A-Rod at 622, No. 7 Sammy Sosa at 609.
Check out this little stat: MLB waited until 2004 to impose penalties on players who tested positive for performance enhancing drugs(steroids). Between 1995 and 2003, when NO SUSPENSIONS were given to cheaters, here are your Top 7 home run leaders: Sammy Sosa hit 444, Barry Bonds hit 399, Rafael Palmeiro hit 373, Jim Thome hit 351, Alex Rodriguez hit 345, Mark McGwire hit 345 and Manny Ramirez hit 328.
Notice anything? The ONLY dude on that list that didn't use steroids - Jim Thome!
So, realistically, the only dudes ahead of Thome in legitimate career home runs are Hank Aaron at 755, Babe Ruth at 714, Willie Mays at 660 and Ken Griffey at 630!!
Jim Thome ROCKS!!!
There are certain asses that were designed to be showcased on a yacht on the French Riviera. Bar Refaeli owns one such ass...
