So I said I would have things for you to look at after this weekend, and I am kind of slow, you know, this is a lot of material, but here it is. This can no longer be called “morning” by any stretch of the imagination but at least it’s still Monday.
You can click that drawing to look at it bigger, by the way, although I’m not real sure why you’d want to do so.
In addition to the inky reenactment up above, I have finished with the photos from this first game (still working on shots from the other two Tigs/Sox games I went to). There are kind of a lot of them. Highlights below! (and remember to click the “read more” link)
Clete and Miggy shoving one another. They were playing keep-away/soccer with one of Miggy’s gloves. The game ended when Miggy booted it into the dugout.
It wouldn’t be a true Dave Dombrowski sighting without a striped shirt being involved.
How ridiculously adorable is this team?
Lots of shenanigans from Cabrera and Inge.
Miggy reacting to getting hit on the hand, and commiserating with Youkilis at third shortly thereafter. Which is kind of hilarious, of course, because not too long after that:

Youk got beaned. Which led to this:
You can see the helmet Youk had chucked at Porcello still in the air on the left.
I will NOT make inappropriate comments about Andy Van Slyke. I will NOT….
Sure, there was some baseball that happened after that, but as it mostly consisted of things like this
I’m not sure how much you really want to relive it.
As I said, many more shots from this game, including lots more from BP and the brawl, can be seen right here.
Once I’ve got shots from all three games online I am planning on a feature titled something like “Miguel Cabrera is an Idiot Manchild and That Is Why We Love Him,” because I will have more than enough material for such a photoblog. Until then, hey, this is good enough for an offday. Enjoy.
