The Lineup:
In the first episode of 2007 we’re pleased to welcome Lee Panas from Detroit Tiger Tales, one of the most popular Tigers blogs. Lee’s been dishing Tigers-related Sabermetrics at DTT since 2005 and even longer on Detroit sports message boards.

But before we get to the interview with Lee we play an audio comment from Josh Wallen, a comment that got lost in the post-World Series shuffle. Though he left the message two months ago today, it’s still worth a listen.

In this interview Lee explains how a resident of Red Sox Nation becomes a lifelong Tigers fan, why he blogs about the team, what he takes away from the 2006 season and what lies ahead in ’07.

  1. An excellent job as always, Mike. I enjoyed listening to the origins of Lee becoming a Tigers fan. And, of course, I totally dug that Boston accent of his.

  2. I am new to the Daily Fungo podcast and I really enjoy it. I also am an long time Tiger Fan. I, unfortunatly, live in Twins Country. So I am glad to hear of other Tiger fans who live in other American League cities. Great podcast Mike, keep up the great work.
