So how’s your week going? You can get a sense of how mine is going based on the first nugget in this week’s collection of thoughts and half-truths. As much as it pains me to make this comparison, the Tigers are almost in the same position in 2010 as the White Sox were at the deadline in 1997. The Sox were 53-53 and just three games out on July 31. They traded Danny Darwin, Wilson Alvarez and Roberto Hernandez to the Giants for minor-leaguer Brian Manning, Lorenzo Barcelo, Mike Caruso, Keith Foulke, Bob Howry and Ken Vining.
