Friday: Tigers vs. Royals

I’m off this weekend, which happens to be one of my favorite weekends of the baseball season. I have two fantasy football drafts, which isn’t the reason I’m off, but certainly gives me the benefit of study time/setting up the command center before the crapshoot begins. It’s the first real sign that baseball season is wrapping up, but it’s also a very nice diversion when you’re heading down the home stretch (especially if your October looks more free than you originally expected). It also helps when you have the first overall pick in one of those drafts to gloat about with people, some of whom read this blog.

Anyways, I’ll be back on Labor Day for the makeup game with the Yankees. If you’re heading to the game on Monday, be prepared for traffic with the Labor Day Parade down Woodward. In any case, have a good weekend.
