I think there is more evidence that the Ilitch "kids" are more than eager to assume control of the team. Perhaps, they have done so already.

In today's Freep, there is an interview with Scherzer where he says that Dombrowski apologized for the clumsy way the press release (regarding the negotiations) was handled. That's good. But, the damage has been done. Detroit sports media have had a field day with this story. It has tarnished some of the excitement for Opening Day.

I've not been paying attention, but Doug Fister, unfortunately, has not had a good spring training as he is experiencing his 2nd injury. Given his past history with injuries, I'd be concerned if I were a Nationals fan. As rotten as his trade deal was, maybe it is good that we do not have to depend on him. I wish him well.

Good call. Are we going to have to listen to Girardi call him Solly, now that Nuni was sent down?

No way. Núni will be back as soon as Roberts breaks.

I've met most of Mike Ilitch's kids on multiple occasions and fully expect Christopher Ilitch (or possibly even Atanas) to take over the team once Mike is no longer in control. I imagine one of the main reasons Christopher hasn't done so already is because his role as president and CEO of Ilitch holdings and Motor City Casino prevent him from doing so (per MLB regulations about involvement in the gaming industry). He will likely need to step down from that position in order to take over ownership of the Tigers and Red Wings, and that's not even getting into the fact that it could be more advantageous, tax wise, for him to take over after his father dies.

Nice come-from-behind win for the Tigers on opening day. We got a little taste of the Ausmus style. He stuck with Alex Gonzales to the end of the game even though our new shortstop was booed earlier in the game. As it turned out, Gonzales, at the plate, was the hero of the day as he hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the 9th which enabled pinch runner, Tyler Collins--who in the heck is he????--to score the winning run. This was Ausmus's other aggressive move: With the scored tied in the 9th, Brad took out Avila, the catcher, to get some speed with a pinch runner. This is something Leyland would rarely do. To beat a good team such as Kansas City felt good.

Maybe we should have a new thread: 2014 MLB

Brad Ausmus certainly knows how to use the new replay rule. In fact, he seems to enjoy it.
Two games; two heroes of the day. Who will be next?
Scherzer threw 100+ pitches. What a horse! This seems rather a high pitch count for this early in the season.
