Odd to see the Rays actually on the winning end of a no-no for once, but hey, congrats to Garza! This leaves the Padres and Mets as the only two franchises in MLB without a no-hitter.

Since the Tigers were victimized, part of me was hoping that the ump would botch a call on the last out of the game and award a Tiger batter a hit.

a tigers fan asked how this could be worse.

I said "Galarraga could have been the losing pitcher."

He used to play for the Santa Barbara Foresters - our local chapter of the collegiate summer baseball league associated with the National Baseball Congress.

He graduated from high school in Fresno the same year I did. I had given up the ghost by then but my buddies knocked him around pretty good. He had filthy stuff, just didn't know where it was going all the time. Good for him.

Well it's about to get worse. The Rays are definitely getting their 2nd ever no-hitter and I'm officially sickened. SICKENED. Jim Leyland is a moron when it comes to line-ups and rest. He is A MORON. His stupid insistence on playing musical chairs with players and the line-up have absolutely killed the Tigers when they were at least competitive. And now, when we suck ass, it's crippling. You'd think his absolutely abysmal record in the second half of every season since he got here would shake him out of his nicotine haze and STOP randomly resting people who don't need it. But nope. So get a hold of this line-up he's putting out there tonight against Jeff Niemann. Alongside some appropriate music to play as you read these names.

Your Detroit Tigers! (

Batting first, Will "Busta" Rhymes!
Batting second, Johnny "I'm Being Paid 8 Million on a Roster So Financially Strapped We Had to Trade Curtis Granderson" Damon!
Batting thirrrrd, Jeff "Who Am I?" Larish!

That is completely and utterly ridiculous. Be prepared for the second no-hitter in Rays history tonight. And Dave "I Invented Baseball" Dembrowski is sitting on his hands, smugly Jedi Mind Tricking the media with his "Well, you haven't seen our players in the minors" bullshit. No, sorry Dave, I was just at the Whitecaps this weekend, your Double-A team? They're in DEAD LAST, in single-digit wins, because of the rotating door and lack of talent. The Toledo Mudhens are actually playing in Tampa right now! Hey, here's a thought: PLAY AUSTIN JACKSON INSTEAD OF SITTING HIM ON A "SCHEDULED" REST! You're in a pennant hunt....barely....and you're throwing up your hands and quitting.

1. Austin Jackson, DH
2. Johnny Damon, wherever the fuck
3. Brennan Boesch, opposite wherever the fuck
4. Miggy

Oh hey look what I did with a minimum of thought. And look what else I can do:

5. JERMAINE "I'm a Major League Baseball Player" DYE. CARLOS "I'm Not Jeff Larish" DELGADO. JOE "I Kicked Your Guys' Ass Now Let Me Play For You" CREDE. Hell, GARY "At Least My Foul Balls Are Hit Hard" SHEFFIELD!

You're going to tell me, Mr. David Dembrowski, that it's much better to bat Jeff Larish third than to sign one of these guys and move Boesch up to third? Which, by the way, Brennan needs as the scouting report is out on him and by putting him in front of Cabrera, you ensure people have to actually pitch to the kid?

This is why I will never understand people saying good things about the Tigers. Their organization and the Lions' officially traded places last year.

I would LOVE to see Toronto's Skydome Rogers Centre replaced. It's an ugly stadium, and it's not a fun place to watch baseball. It's difficult to get to by transit (about twenty minutes walking through snaking corridors) and it's just gaudy.
