    Yeah, looks like he rushed himself from that quad injury. Expect to see a lot of Shelley Duncan with the lefties going in the series. Morgan Ensberg will get more playing time, he was a great signing by Cash. He seems like a good clubhouse guy, plays great defense at 3rd, has gotten some clutch hits, and can hit the fastball. Again, good signing.

    I'm afraid that is exactly what the Tigers and their fans are saying about Hughes and Kennedy.

    Ensberg wrote a guest entry on Hughes blog. I like this guy.

    So here we go…

    This is the first time I have ever blogged anything. To be 100% honest with you, I don’t really know what to write about. This was an incredible discovery for Seinfeld. Heck, he made a whole TV show about not having anything to talk about. But the whole purpose of a blog is to give a point of view and for that matter, give you a point of view about baseball. So here you go.

    TV contracts are a really big deal in baseball. So much so that the umpire at second base has a stop watch and starts it immediately following the last out of the inning. We all sit and warm up and wait until a minute and 30 seconds (I think that is how long) has passed. You will see the home plate umpire standing and waiting, the batter will be outside the batters box waiting, and you will see the pitcher standing behind the mound and looking at second base and waiting for the umpire to move back into the outfield or put his hat on (the signal that we have passed the time needed for commercials) and that tell us we can start. It drives all of us crazy.

    The next idea that I have is about opposing fans. I love it when a fan is yelling at me and says something really witty. Not just yelling to be heard by the people around him, but something really funny. If it is good, I will laugh at it myself. I want it to be funny. But let me tell you this, if you say “you suck” we know that you don’t know what to say and you probably aren’t very funny. To us it is like saying “um”. We hear it all the time and it is just a sound with no meaning. Take your time and don’t get caught up in the moment. Timing is everything and if you can think of something genuinely funny, you will have my respect.

    Finally, the Office is the greatest show on the planet, and I would like to pose this question to all of you….

    Would an average sized row boat support phil and me without capsizing?

    One more thing, I love reading and I really love to read non-fiction. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them. Just email Phil and he can pass them on to me. Hopefully you will send enough recommendations that we shut down the internet! Later! Morgan

    I'm not really a fan of Joe Girardi right now. He has really made some boneheaded moves this season. Young kid on the mound, you give him a catcher he's never worked with. You put a liability in center field, and another liability in right field. Do you want these kids to do well? If you are going to give Melky and Molina a rest... you do it with Wang or Pettitte on the mound.

    I agree. I know their schedule has been brutal but it seems like he has really been giving guys lots of rest. Melky is hot right now and is young. Sit Giambi and let Damon DH.
