Let Interleague Play Begin!

While I know there are those on both sides of the fence when it comes to their taste for inter-league play, I always find it to be a fun time. Too bad I'm not usually all that happy with who we play. This year the Tigers start out with just a little taste of it when they play the LA Dodgers this weekend (Sadly, we are gonna miss young Clayton Kershaw, who I love to watch pitch, but good for the team anyways). This is going to be our last stretch on the west coast all year. Can you remember the last time we were done with west coast trips in May?

We don't go back to playing the National League until next month when we hook up with the Pirates on the 11th. Then we get the Washington Nationals, Arizona Diamondbacks, NY Mets, and Atlanta Braves.

This is a pretty cush schedule for the NL. Most of those teams are very beatable, and we can finally get a real #9 hitter in our lineup. DONTRELLE WILLIS! Bets on him getting more hits than Everett? Don't think you even need a business credit reports to get cash to take that bet.

Way to Go Pistons! Winning Meaningless Game Gets #7 Pick

I'm sure most of you didn't even think about the NBA Draft Lottery. I know I don't talk about the Pistons much anymore, but I still follow them religiously. The NBA is just so infuriating to me now since the Miami Heat won the title and my team sucks donkely balls. was exciting to watch us have a shot at the top of the draft. I got more and more excited as it went from 15 to 10, 9, 8...then thud at 7. The Washington Wizards ended up at #1 and they lost ONE more game than the the Pistons did. So close...yet so far away from the top. At least this draft has about 10 guys you would be happy with. Maybe we can get a true stud for once. Maybe we get another foreigner stiff. Maybe we suck for 10 more years. Maybe I buy some wii accessories and play with my wii.
