Friday: Tigers at Braves

No Clete Thomas today, as expected. He was in street clothes when I saw him in the clubhouse this morning. Don Kelly is on the trip, though. In fact, he’s batting leadoff today with Austin Jackson and Scott Sizemore off.


  1. Don Kelly, 2B
  2. Johnny Damon, CF
  3. Carlos Guillen, LF
  4. Miguel Cabrera, 1B
  5. Brandon Inge, 3B
  6. Gerald Laird, C
  7. Ryan Raburn, RF
  8. Ramon Santiago, SS
  9. Justin Verlander, P (guessing he’s under orders to not swing)


  1. Melky Cabrera, LF
  2. Martin Prado, 2B
  3. Chipper Jones, 3B
  4. Brian McCann, C
  5. Troy Glaus, 3B
  6. Jason Heyward, RF (reportedly he has made the team)
  7. Nate McLouth, CF
  8. Omar Infante, SS
  9. Derek Lowe, P


If anyone hasn’t seen Jason Heyward, here’s your chance on ESPN.

Heyward is impressive. Hearing him talk, I can easily see him becoming a massive star. He certainly does not lack for confidence.
