Another great weekend is over and i'm ready to hit the hay. Yardwork, grilling, eating, shopping, and driving have all combined to make me tired. Got alot done at the lakehouse and still had time to catch the Tigers three victories in a row over the Indians. Tigers stranded 18 - that's the most in a win since 1920. Miggy got on base six times - that's the most in his career. 9 runs without a triple or homerun must be some kind of record. 5 hour game; Cleveland pitching gave up at least 10 walks. JV got hammered for 5 runs in the first but we've learnt to stay tuned because sometimes it's not how you start, but how you finish. Damon pinchhit for Laird in the 9th (who has just gotten his first hit of the year) and walked on four strait to force the tying run in. The first pitch to Sizemore was in the dirt and got all the way to the backstop allowing Guillen to score from 3rd and it was over. Needless to say, the crowd went wild (as did we in Lakeland who concern ourselves with such things...).

Brother in Illinoiz, I love you. Keep being your kids' daddy.

Tigs in first a half game in front of Minnesota. Keep sweeping lousy teams, Jim, keep managing with your gut.
