I could write more about the continued sketchiness of the Dave Dombrowski firing. I could write about the losing. The atrocious bullpen.

Let us focus instead on the positives, at least for right now.
–The rally squirrel helped the Tigers to a win.
–Miguel Cabrera might be on his way back sooner rather than later.
–Fiesta Tigres was a success and Placido Polanco was back in town, lookin’ pretty good, shark tooth necklace and all.
–JD Martinez exists.
–After the Royals, the AL Central is pretty egregiously bad this year, so despite everything the Tigers are somehow not completely buried yet.
–The uniforms still look great, especially on players who wear their socks up. There has been no unnecessary rebranding– we’re lookin’ at you, NBA.
–It is still possible, on occasion, for the Tigers to win a game of baseball.
–We could be Miami, or Philadelphia.
That’s all I got.

True, true, true. Things for which we can be thankful!
Very true about JV.

Just good to see you back, Sam
