So, a lot’s happened in Tigerland. Most of it has to do with Zumaya and his bi-monthly trips to the disabled list. The good news is that he’s hoping to get back sometime this season. The bad news is, obviously, he’s hurt. This leaves the Tigers to consider their options: do they go after an arm at the deadline? Hope Jeremy Bonderman can be that boost to the relief corps? Or pray to the baseball gods that Zumaya’s body parts stay attached at least until the end of October?
We shall see.
Oh yeah, I was also working on a Tigers/White Sox version of Romeo and Juliet, but I could only get through the prologue before I got bored and gave up. Alas. Maybe some other time you’ll get to see A.J. Pierzynski and Justin Verlander swordfight.
