Apparently, winning the Triple Crown and American League MVP gets you some commercial time on ESPN. Nice special effects! It’s like Miguel Cabrera is in the next Marvel superhero movie. Personally, I’ve always dreaded the Tigers being on Sunday Night Baseball. In the past, they’ve seemed to wilt under the national spotlight. Of course, I also have that Midwestern inferiority complex that seeks affirmation and a Sunday night game brings that. Could this weekend’s Tigers-Braves series be a World Series preview? Sure, it might be too early to make that kind of declaration, but the new schedule gives us interleague play every day — and thus, a series liek this in April. (via Austin Drake on Facebook)
It never gets old.
Listen to George Kell call the Tigers’ last division-clinching win.
