Insult and Injury

You would think that with the Tigers’ recent vault into the top spot in the AL Central I would be happy.  But I’m not.

There’s just too much going wrong for all this to continue.  The Tigers have been winning but it is in spite of, not because of, the baseball gods that they do so.  Don’t believe me?  Look at the list.  Galarraga’s (nearly) perfect game.  Zumaya’s horrific injury.  Damon’s phantom 3rd strike against the Braves.  There’s only one logical conclusion.  Despite the Tigers’ run, the baseball gods have it in for them.  In fact, if you could peer in on those gods right now as they address the Tigers, it would probably sound a little bit like this:

“Wanna make $14 the hard way?”  Well, at least that would buy me a beer and a hotdog at the game, both of which make the gods’ antipathy a little easier to swallow.

    hello Allen! 😀 oh AL central is a favorite of mine. Who else can be turn to for game 163 year in and year out 😉 I think your Tigers will be okay. The Twinkies are a tough team but the Tigers aren’t a team that one can mess with. Although some interesting turn of events made your season quite…. well… interesting LOL

    Congrats to your all stars! And let Miggy dominate the HR derby out in anaheim!

    Well I had not seen that video before. I feel like maybe acting out a few of them ;-).
    How can the baseball gods have it in for the Tigers!? It is the year of the Tigers! They will overcome all adversity.
    Mimi suggested that Mmiggy dominate the HR derby. Frankly I don’t like it. Some hitters are not the same afterwards. Maybe a shorter version of that HR derby.
    You want me to pass a note to Selig if I see him at the All-Star FanFest or the game? 😉

  3. The Game Above All

    I agree with crzblue: I can’t stand the HR Derby. On the other hand, I dislike the ASG in general, so…

    I feel that the baseball gods hate the Tigers, Phillies, and Sox. Something is very wrong here.
