Score One For The Good Guys

Soon to be Hall of Fame pitcher, Roger Clemens, was aquitted of all charges made against him by a congresssional inquisition.  Clemens walked into the den of vipers and thieves, and other than a little lighter in the wallet, emerged unscathed.


It didn’t take the jury long to aquit Clemens, only 10 hours after 9 weeks of testimony.  Apparently, being accused of lying, by pathological liars, was more than the jury could take.

Here’s a link to an article on MLB dot com.

Tigers Return Home and Take a Dump

I know, Valverde sucked and Marte was worse.  But the game should never have gotten to extra innings. 

The Tigers were 3-14 with runners in scoring position.  They didn’t get the big hit and Valverde blew an otherwise great night for the bullpen.

One bright spot was Prince Fielder flashin some leather.  He turned two double plays in the second and third both off the bat of Giambi.  The first double play went 3-2-3.

I’m beginning to worry about Valverde and Delmon Young.

Back at it tomorrow at 4:05.

Tigers Take Series From Cubbies

It is a good thing AJax hit that two run homer in the top of the ninth to give the Tigers a 5-2 lead.  Papa Grande came in and gave up a run in the bottom of the ninth but the Tigers held on to win 5-3 and take the series two games to one from the Cubbies and give JV his sixth win of the season.

Next, the Tigers head home for a weekend tilt with the Rockies.

Jeff Ruby’s-Great Steakhouse In Cincinnati!

Jeff Ruby's Steak House Cincinnati I was in Cinicnnati last weekend watching the Tigers play Cincinnati. After Saturday’s game, my friends and I were referred to Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse for dinner. We were not disappointed.

All three of us said it was one of the best steaks we had eaten.  All three of us frequent steakhouses.

Personally, I found my New York strip to be better than anything I’ve had a Morton’s, Smith & Wolinsky’s and Ruth’s Chris.  The only place where I’ve had a comparable steak is at a private dinner club in Michigan, The Hunt Club, in Farmington Hills.

Turning to baseball, I belive the Tigers turned the corner in Cincinnati. In fact, even though they lost Friday night, Brennan Boesch’s hit with two outs and a runner on third to tie the game in, I believe the 6th inning, was the turning point in not only Boesch’s season but the  Tiger’s as well.

The Tigers went on to win the last two games in Cincinnati, in comeback fashion, and then headed to Chicago to play the clubs.  They lost the first game on Tuesday but took last night’s affair 8-4 coming back from a 4-1 deficit.  JV is on the hill this afternoon.  If the Tigers can win today, they will take their second series in a row and head home to face Colorado.

Let’s hope this is the beginning of another pennant run.
