Wednesday Walewanders: Colemans, Dog Days and the Marine Layer
Posted on August 4, 2010
This abbreviated edition of the Walewanders comes to you from Oceanside, California, where the marine layer is burning off and another weather-perfect day is under way:
- When I saw that Casey Coleman was pitching for the Cubs, my first instinct was to see if he was related to former Tigers righty Joe Coleman. Of course, I forgot to check but Big League Stew was all over it. Indeed, Casey is the son of Joe and the grandson of Joe Sr. — both elder Colemans pitched for the Tigers at one point in their careers.
- ESPN.com began its Dog Days of Summer series today and it begins with the Tigers. Take a look at what yours truly had to say about it and weigh in here … or there.
- This one isn’t Tigers related but I thought it was interesting nonetheless. The Diamondbacks are walking away from their first-round pick in June’s draft — and possibly setting a bad precedent for future drafts and draftees.
Finally, Happy 66th Birthday to Richard Belzer, comic and actor in one of my all-time favorite shows, “Homicide.”
