Familiar Faces in Playoffs for Tigers Fans

2010postseasonLogo.jpgNot sure if this makes the postseason more or less interesting to you, but if you watch each league’s division series you’ll likely to see lots of former Tigers:

Yankees

Rays

Rangers

Giants

Braves

Phillies

The Art of the Autograph

Detroit Free Press photographer Eric Seals created some nifty videos during his assignment in Lakeland for Spring Training. This one features Brandon Inge, Curtis Granderson, Matt Treanor and Tigers fans all talking about what autographs mean to them.

Neat stuff.

At Last, New Uniform Numbers Announced

ScorecardXSmall.jpgApologies for the lengthy radio silence. For the past 10 days I’ve been clicking the refresh button on my Web browser at Tigers.com waiting to see if they’ve assigned numbers to Gerald Laird, Adam Everett, Edwin Jackson and Matt Treanor.

Lo and behold, today they have. Here are the numbers you’ll see in your program:

  • Laird – 8
  • Jackson – 36
  • Everett – 4
  • Treanor – 20

One number that hasn’t changed is Jeff Larish‘s number 19. In the Arizona Fall League he was wearing number 7. With Pudge Rodriguez gone, I thought Larish was making the shift. Apparently not.

Now I can get back to blogging normalcy.

Updated: I forgot to mention Brandon Lyon‘s number, 37. Looks like Kenny Rogers is retired.
