Injured players coming back

The Tigers are starting to get healthier. Jose Iglesias returned to the team this weekend, Jordan Zimmerman started his rehab assignment this past week, and the reports have Nick Castellanos returning in mid September.
  I believe the team can still make a run for the playoffs. They are 2.5 games out I believe, and have the easiest remaining schedule in the American League. However, they do play Cleveland and Kansas City in the coming weeks, those series will tell us how the team will do this year, if they miss the playoffs, it will be interesting to see wha they do this offseason.

Umpire last night

Last night I was able to finally sit down and enjoy a Tigers baseball game, the issue was, the home plate umpire made the game not enjoyable. By the 5th inning, Tigers had 4 members ejected, designated hitter Victor Martinez, manager Brad Ausmus, hitting coach Wally Joyner, and right fielder J.D. Martinez. Now, if the ejection is warranted, I am all for it, if the player or coach is up in the umpires face, throw him out, but J.D. should not have been thrown out. From the articles I read about the game this morning, JD turned around after a boarder line call, said to the umpire "You must be having a rough day." Umpire asked him to repeat, so he did, and was tossed. If that is what was really said, I am sorry, but that ejection is not warranted. If he was vulgar, or attacking the umpire or his family, okay, I get it, but to eject someone because they said you are not having a good day is not right.

Hello everyone,
Thank you for checking out my new blog. The point of this blog is to talk about the Detroit Tigers baseball team. The Detroit Tigers are in the middle of a playoff push right now, and are five back from the division lead and two and a half back from a playoff spot with a month and a half left in the season. The team has a shot at the playoffs, and this blog will be about the team, different ideas, like if a player on a different team is released, should the Tigers sign them, or who the Tigers should call up in September, what the team should do about the injuries, and depending on my schedule, I will try to post something about the games.
 Hope you enjoy my blog.
