TWFE has been silenced! For up to 24 hours, anyway...

As you all know, TWFE HQ is moving. Again... For good reason, to a totally remodeled place, but still,moving is a pain in the ass, back, neck, and most every other body part.

As it turns out, I'll have the help to move the big things today, starting around 1pm. Which means I need to get my ass in gear. Now!

The cable guy is supposed to be by tomorrow. So hopefully, if all goes well, I'll be back, up and running somewhat smoothly, by Friday afternoon. Give or take...

Wish me luck, and that I finish in one healthy piece...

Now that personal news is out of the way, on to the Tigers. Quickly.

I thought the Tigers would beat the White sox last night. I just didn't think that it would involve the Gambler folding, the pen, for the most part (GRILLI! ARRGH!), actually picking up the slack, and take Ryan Raburn channeling his inner Hank Greenberg to do so.

It was a good win. More importantly, a needed win for the on edge fanbase, who were going slightly goofy after the doubleheader that we shall never mention again..

I wake up this morning, and see that the former Tiger, the Yankees loopy Professor Farnsworth is the hot Tigers pitching rumor. I was at first, what is Dave Dombrowski smoking? Some of the good stuff I did in the 70's, obviously...

Now, I'm warming up to it, mostly due to the fact that it sounds like it's just going to mean just taking on Kyle Farnswoth's contract, and not much in the way of a prospect. If the cost of a Lidge, Cordero, Dotel, one of the Texas relievers, or any of the usual suspects is unreasonable, the slightly off kilter Farns is not a bad fall back. Not bad at all.

I'd hope the Tigers would do more that just pick up Farnsworth (If that rumor is true, but the market will dictate what happens from here on out.

Till tomorrow, maybe, Big Al is signing off.


  1. Hurry back Big Al, I can't wait for your comments on Ford's quotes about Millen!

  2. Best of luck on the move. Having moved across town in May, I've found that there's not many activities I hate worse than moving. Like Leelanau SG said, I can't wait to hear your comments about Ford's quotes as well!
