The Tigers took another ugly one on the chin, 4-2 to Cleveland. Quintin Berry got on with a hit batter, stole second and came home on a double, starting to make Leyland have to think about sliding him to left once Jackson gets off the DL. Poor Matt Young wasn't as lucky, getting the golden sombrero, going 0/4 with four strikeouts.
The natives are getting restless; Lloyd McClendon's head on the chopping block might be a possible knee-jerk but positive move, with bringing Leon Durham up from Toledo to take over as hitting coach. There are too many Leyland folks on the coaching staff to fire the big guy mid-season, but Durham seems to be getting stuff out of the folks in Toledo.
Walker's up 54-45 with 88% in. Unless the unions empty out the Chicago graveyards and got the zombies to do same-day registration in Madison, that should hold up. As the old Hewittism goes, if it ain't close, they can't cheat. I would still like to see the focus group of the folks who are Walker-Obama voters, since Obama leads in the polls.
The answer is, if I can borrow from the old US Grant line, to find out what Walker's been drinking and send a case of it to Mitt Romney; let's hope it's non-alcoholic.
The body-parts killer was caught in Berlin and is heading back to Canada once extradition papers go through; Mr. Magnotta is behaving once in custody. The strange thing (of many in this case) is that he was caught in a Internet cafe reading about himself. Might I suggest Dracula's theme song, You're so Vein, as music for the occasion.
What's with Slick Willie? Going rogue and plugging for a full extension of tax cuts, including the upper brackets. He's triangulating, but he's not the one on the ballot. This will be interesting to watch, to see if he continues to distance himself from his wife's boss.
