    Look closely at those four teams -

    A's
    Tigers
    Cards
    Mets

    Does any one of those strike fear in anyone?

    The Tigers. They're reasonably loaded.

    I'd say Tigers too.

    They have a bullpen a little bit like the '90 Reds which makes for a 6 inning game. And if their starters are on, they can be mighty tough.

    The Mets have parts and pieces, but I'm not sure they entirely fit together.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    You know whose game I really think is dull and overrated? Jason Kendall's.

    The guy hasn't been worth a damn for years.

    Its like he left Pittsburgh and went on a hunger strike. Is he on a reverse roid?

    In 2001-2002 he sucked; he got good again in 2003-2004, and has sucked again since coming to Oakland (or sucked relative to his payroll, at any rate). Plus his speed vanished.

    So in the last six seasons he's only been good a third of the time.

    Harden has not pitched in over 2 weeks. He immediately gives up a walk and 2 singles. 1-0 Tigers.

    Detroit up 1-0. Three straight batters reach to start the game. No outs, 1st and 3rd.

    Now 2-0 Tigers as another run scores on a force out.

    Most people going to Oakland suddenly lose their wheels. Both literally and figuratively.

    A catcher who gets on base all the time? He's not worth what he's making, but he's still a pain if you're rooting for the other team.

    By the way, what happened to the inflated radar gun readings? I was really enjoying that bit.

    He's been the lame version of Aaron Boone since his move to Oakland--and he really isn't a stolen base threat anymore. He used to be good, but his game has gone in the tank hard.
