A little afternoon baseball, featuring a potentially thrilling Tim Wakefield/Dontrelle Willis matchup. I say potentially thrilling because, given the way that Dontrelle pitches and the fact that Wakefield throws a knuckleball, we may see the most wild baseball of the season today.
Maybe one or both will prove me wrong and have pinpoint control for much of the day. That would be equally ridiculous, naturally.
You should all remember how this works, but just in case: it’s a liveblog, not a chatroom. It will mostly be me rambling. You can chime in if you’re watching, but not everything will necessarily be published. When the liveblog is over, you can replay it at any time, so fear not if you are unable to watch it unfold in realtime. The liveblog should go, er, live a little after 1 pm.

postscript: things we learned from this game:
–Miguel Cabrera needs to stretch more before day games
–never say good things about Tigers pitching in the middle of a game, they will immediately work as hard as they can to prove you wrong
–do not give Zach Miner men on base ever
–Brandon Inge cup adjustment may be the most exciting thing about this game
–the pineapple is actually a berry. Dane Sardinha is The Pineapple but is not, so far as we know, a berry
–Joel Zumaya: both terrible and amazing
Many thanks to kb, anaaki, and Less for chiming in. Everyone else, enjoy the transcript. Such as it is.
