2010 AL Central Preview

March 25, 2010 Leave a comment

With their team’s epic collapse finally secured after a 12-inning 6-5 loss to the Minnesota twins in the AL Central tie-breaker game, Detroit Tigers fans found themselves with mouths full of poison.

Not too different from that which was found in mass quantities in slugger Miguel Cabrera’s blood just a few days prior.

No team in the history of MLB had ever lost a division which they led from May 10th until the final day of the regular season. No team had ever lost a lead of three games with only four to play. No team had ever (presumably) let a player play in a critical night-cap, after one of his own, leading to a Blood Alcohol Level of .26 as late as 5 a.m. on game-day.

The Detroit Tigers accomplished all of those feats. The question the rest of the AL Central is interested in, is whether or not that trave-sham-ockery will carry over into the 2010 season. Are the Tigers still favored to win the crown? Read more…

Digging Up the AL West

When I was younger, I was obsessed with dinosaurs. Just completely enamored with them. Their magnificent sizes (really small to really tall), creepy scales, weaponry tails and tongue-twisting names captivated me. It seemed like I knew everything there was to know about roughly 90 percent of all pre-historic creatures, land and sea. In reality, the percentage was probably a lot closer to three percent.

What fascinated me the most though, was the process of digging up bones. I wanted nothing more than to be a paleontologist or an archeologist. That’s right. I wanted to be a Ross Geller. Over the years that aspiration began to fade, as I figured out how much schooling the job would require and how little I would likely actually dig-up.

Still the dream of discovery and exploration emerges from time to time. So let’s take that theme and run with it, taking an exploratory journey beneath the surface of the AL West.

The objective? Discovering our 2010 AL WEST winner. Read more…
