My wife called me from work on Tuesday. She wanted to see if I could get tickets for Saturday's afternoon Tiger game. The weather forecast was favorable, the 4 PM start wouldn't interfere with my work schedule and most importantly her favorite pitcher Anibal Sanchez was scheduled to start. As a favorite pitcher Sanchez is not a bad choice. He led the American League in ERA last season. In fact it never went above 3.00. Despite injuries that caused him to miss most of May this season he was off to a similar start.
Strangely there were no comments about Joba Chamberlain's eyelashes(must have been blocked by his cap).
