They were considered a dark horse World series finalist in 2020, and were in the wild card game as recently as the last week of August last year. The sell-off was very quick

Weird, small sample size, stat.  Tigers have played 3 doubleheaders this year. They are 3-0, scoring 7.3 rpg in Game 1, and 0-3, scoring 1.3 rpg in Game 2

I'd be more apt to go to games were they not now in the worst traffic area of the city with no MARTA.  I haven't figured out the bus yet.

But I really prefer watching on TV anyway now.

For sure with football, baseball I'd rather be there.  I don't think you lose viewing experience by being there, like you do in football, and I like being at the park

When I was at the park, I noticed a lot of fans either looking down at their phones during plays or up at the big screen, not on the field.

Astros Verlander throws a 1 hitter for 8 innings against the Twins last night

He faced the minimum number of batters of 24

Not bad for a 39 year old after Tommy Johns surgery
They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

The complete game today is almost nonexistent.

So is bunting.

but playing small ball is kinda their thing
