Beat Down in the Boogie Down

Just like most of the Tigers, I too was suffering from that flu bug this weekend. From the looks of the box scores I didn't miss much. I was kind of bummed I didn't see Cameron Maybin's first home run, and Roger Clemens proving what a world class dick he is by beaning Maybin in his next at bat. I did think it was cool that Maybin wears #4, as a reminder that the ghost of the Bobby Higginson era has been exorcised.

And as for this 6 game road swing, yes the tigers did lose 4, but it could have been a lot worse. Basically the Tigers faced each of the Indians and Yankees top 2 pitchers, all the while having Jair Jurrjens make his major league debut, Chad Durbin make another spot start, and not having the on of the best hitters with RISP in the lineup.

With Polanco back in the line-up (and Inge out now apparently), Zumaya back in the pen, and some home cooking, the Tigers should be able to right the ship....well they better or September is going to suck.
