Wednesday Walewanders: Late-night Mish Mash
Posted on January 27, 2010
Yes, I want an iPad, of course I do.
- I wonder if Dave Dombrowski thinks of Johnny Damon in Detroit and only sees Jacque Jones.
- I couldn’t see the Tigers making room for Jim Thome without eating another big contract — and we know that isn’t happening. Still, it would’ve been fun to see him play at Comerica Park 81 times in a Detroit uniform. But instead we’re left to hope that Carlos Guillen’s power numbers return. Sigh. (If only the Tigers had made a run at Bobby Abreu last offseason…) Oh, and what about Jermaine Dye? He’s still available.
- It bums me out that the Tigers have apparently cut ties with Lou Whitaker (as loose as those ties were). Sweet Lou was always a bit flaky but he was so good for so long — and revered by Tigers fans — the Tigers should not let him vanish. Alas, it looks like it’s a moot point. And one more thing: I still can’t believe he was a one-and-done guy on the Hall of Fame ballot. That, dear reader, is a crime.
- Happy Birthday to Phil Plantier (41), Rusty Meacham (42) and Steve Demeter (75).
