The Detroit Tigers bullpen as seen thru Pink Floyd songs

If you are of a certain age, probably over 35, you are (Or should be) a huge fan of one of the iconic bands of the 70's, Pink Floyd. So as I was listening to "Animals" for the umpteenth time, while also pondering the plight of the Tigers beleaguered bullpen, I couldn't keep myself from mashing together something so good, with something so bad...

Wil Ledezma: Money - Of which Ledezma should be returning to the Tigers considering his utter ineffectiveness.

Youman Bazardo: Hey You - Anyone know who this guy is? I'm not even sure the Tigers themselves do.

Tim Byrdak: Learning to Fly - Byrdak, bird, fly. Get it? Jesus, you're a hard bunch to please... OK, let's try this... A career minor league journeyman is finally learning to spread his wings, and become an effective pitcher. That analogy any better?

Fernando Rodney: Run Like Hell - Considering how many runs Rodney allows during his appearances, that's exactly what been happening on the basepaths.

Jason Grilli: Comfortably Numb - What I need to make myself whenever Grilli enters the game.

Bobby Seay: One of these Days - Bobby Seay will actually get someone out...One of these days.

Todd Jones: Pigs on a Wing - Pigs will fly before Todd Jones will convert a save with an easy 1-2-3 inning.

Joel Zumaya: Wish You Were Here - 'Nuff said...

Jim Leyland: Is There Anybody Out There - That has to be running through the Cigarette Smoking Man's mind whenever he has to go to the bullpen.

Big Al: Speak to Me/Breathe - What the GF is saying to me after another win is blown by the Tigers bullpen.
