Tigers in 2009

Sports Illustrated picks the Tigers to finish in fourth place in the American League Central, just three games ahead of last-place Kansas City. I call on Billy Martin to provide the official Flint Expatriates response to this insulting prediction. (Hint: notice Billy's left hand.)

And because hope springs eternal in spring training, let's think back to 2006 before the reality of 2009 intrudes...

  1. Our beloved Tigers will not be an improved team regardless of the few moves they made in the off-season.

    A prediction? 76-86.
    Another disappointing year.

Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
