For a game so transfixed on records and tradition, Major League Baseball gives out some annual awards that are insignificant to a majority of players and fans.
There's a lot more to be excited about in Detroit than baseball, and yet it's really spectacular that the success of our team can help expose more people to the success of our community.
The Detroit Tigers are heading to the World Series after sweeping the Yankees four straight games, 8-1 the final score yesterday.
Profits are all that matter -- and it's just too bad that the stadium sounds like a museum. Too bad that little kids who go to games today will come away wondering why the hell grandpa cares about this stuff.
One of the saddest things for any aging superstar is to realize one is no longer "the guy." Perhaps the same can be said of an aging team...
Many will say that barely squeaking by the Orioles is hardly something to cheer given their comparative payrolls and resources. at this point I don't care, with their backs against the wall it was a welcome change of script to see the Yankees stand up and push back for once.
Tigers, we are so close. If we just focus on these few things, I am sure we will win the pennant. And getting to the World Series is something that we need.
Detroit hosts the Yankees in game 3 of the ALCS tonight with the Tigers leading two games to none. The Tigers have their ace on the mound Justin Verlander opposing Phil Hughes.

Do you remember where you were when it was announced that Prince Fielder signed with the Detroit Tigers? Me too.
With the addition of 38-year-old Rasheed Wallace, the average age of the Knicks is nearly 33, the oldest in NBA history.
Moneyball! The Oakland A's are back in the playoffs. One playoff spot remains as St. Louis leads the Dodgers by two games for the wild card spot with two games to go.
The Detroit Tigers can take the field knowing they are playing for not only themselves, but those fans that showed up every single game despite not having the money to do it.
The long national nightmare is over, the NFL officials lockout has ended. NFL officials will return tonight for the Browns/Ravens game.
Serious journalism doesn't get the viewers anymore. Loud music over a waving U.S. flag and flickering lights bring in the audiences. Journalism is now clipped to a sentence that scrolls at the bottom of the screen.
I thought of the Moses-Joshua relationship and the Torah's concept of inheritance and succession as I watched Prince Fielder hoist his Home Run Derby trophy high above his head. His sons flanked him on either side. His father was no where in sight.
