2010 AL Central Preview

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.

Happy Manny Day everyone!

I decided to celebrate Manny Day ’09 by writing this preview while wearing my authentic home No. 99  jersey. Am I a little old to be wearing jersey outside of the ballpark? Probably, but I felt that it would be appropriate to commemorate my Cleveland Indians pick in the threads of a horse who earned his stripes playing for the Tribe.

I am picking Cleveland, aren’t I? Read more…
