Tuesday: Tigers at Marlins

I’m actually off today, but here’s the lineup for the Tigers’ game against the Marlins this afternoon down in Jupiter.


  1. Austin Jackson, CF
  2. Andy Dirks, LF
  3. Don Kelly, RF
  4. Prince Fielder, 1B
  5. Jhonny Peralta, SS
  6. Brandon Inge, 2B
  7. Gerald Laird, C
  8. Danny Worth, 3B
  9. Eric Patterson, DH

P: Rick Porcello, Casey Crosby, Drew Smyly, Daniel Schlereth, Jose Ortega and Brayan Villarreal


hmmm maybe the skipper has lost his mind…playing 2 SS’s and no 3B…..

jk obviously danny is playing 3rd. Excited to see how Ricky, Casey, Drew and Daniel pitch….

While Carlos Guillen’s homer off Weaver is already a classic moment from recent Tigers lore, I’ll always remember him as the best player and best teammate on a very good Tigers team.
The game tying homer in Yankee Stadium in game 2 of the 2006 ALDS stands out. Carlos swingin’ spittin’ and trottin’. I can see it like it happened yesterday.
I also see Brett Gardner sliding into him at second, and I still think that was a dirty play.
Good luck and thank you to Carlos Guillen.

Bondo also. He made him pay to days after

I agree. I will remember the walk off homer at about 3:00 am again against the Yankees and Kyle Farnsworth! Still can’t believe they played tat game. And yes it was a dirty pkay by Gardner and he effectively ended Mr Guillens career!

Just read about Carlos, and am glad that the last team he officially played for was our Tigers. He was an invaluable player for our team and his play made me want to defend him til the end of time.

Thanks Carlos for your memories and you will always be my Tiger.

Maybe Carlos will end up coaching, could I dream he comes back and coaches for the D?

good outing for daniel

Carlos was my tiger. I am saddened to see him retire.

Don’t be sad for Carlos, he was smart enough to know it was time to hang them up. Had a good career, played the game right and along with Maggs and Pudge brought baseball back to the D. Thank you Carlos!

While I feel bad for the waning careers of Carlos, Maggs and Zoom I have to give a lot of credit to Dombrowskin for not trying to pull the wool over the Tiger fans’ eyes by stringing along anyone any longer. It was supremely evident that these careers were over. It often leads to GMs trumpeting players’ reputations to justify their salaries while diluting the overall potential of the team.
Carlos was as smooth a shortstop in his day as I can remember. Maggs was gentleman and a huge sports hero in Motown. Zoom, an exciting weapon that we had on “our side”, that will always leave us in wonder of what might have been.
I am still pulling for Magglio to find a job playing somewhere. He still can and given the right team, ballpark and job assignment, he will help.

I agree, I was thinking the same thing about Maggs.
Well, at least Carlos won’t be hitting against Weaver again. That was bound to get ugly.
