  You might be able to pick them up via StubHub or Ebay, but I don't know what they would be there.  I've never used them myself.  It always helps to get tickets as early as you can.  I would recommend you just get there a day early and go to Friday's game so not only can you be in the bleachers (if you hurry and get tickets) but I'll be able to say hi to you when you're there as well.

I guess it's overused because the stats say it pays off. But these are million-dollar athletes who've probably had to make major adjustments to get where they are... I find it hard to believe a guy like Brandon Belt can't take some extra BP and figure out how to punch a ball over the 3B spot. But then, maybe they figure if they can get him to constantly try for a single to the left side, they take away the threat of a HR to right. Maybe, even if he bats .400, they will stay in the overshift or even make it more radical, just to make sure that cheap shot to left remains more attractive. So he has to become a real HR threat to all fields before they move back to a traditional defense? Either way, who cares? Baseball is a chess game and this is just a new wrinkle to consider. Intentional walks, defensive indifference, bunting, dropping an infield fly (did you see that?)... those are all things players do that are non-standard strategy and aren't going to work in every situation... but they work sometimes. Change the rules because someone figured out an interesting defense? Pah!

We're having a weird start for sure. We weren't supposed to hit for power....but lead the league in HRs.
Our pitching was supposed to dominate like last year - Wainwright looks terrible.
Great veteran lineup....being led by no-name rookies.
Huh.

20 games in and now we can get a feel for this 2016 team. The Tigers are 10-10, no surprise to me and I'll take it after 3 starting postions are on the DL and the K-Rod melt downs.
Also they are far from a decent starting rotation, Verlander and Zimmerman and pray for rain. Also Miggy & V-Mart got mired in a bad slump.
After all that the .500 record looks good but losing 5 of 6 to the Tribe and Royals isn't encouraging.
.
Well now that was cheery, maybe when the warm weather rolls in the Motor City Kittys can find their roar
