How will losing this lefty for the remainder of the season impact the Tigers?

UPDATED @ 5:25 PT: If you were looking ahead to Jeff Larish returning to Detroit for a September call-up and a lefty power bat off the bench for the Tigers, well, it won't be happening. In case you missed it, John Wagner of The Blade in Toledo had the scoop this morning that Larish will have season-ending surgery on his right wrist and hand:

Tigers head athletic trainer Kevin Rand confirmed the surgery, which will be on Larish's wrist. It'll be performed in Arizona by Dr. Donald Sheridan, who performed a previous wrist surgery on Larish. They don't know the extent of the injury yet, but even if it isn't severe, he won't have enough time left in the season to get back to action.

Rand said Larish had the injury checked out around the All-Star break in mid-July (the breaks run concurrently between Triple-A and the Majors) but nothing at that point suggested surgery. He played through it and obviously suffered -- a .247 average after the break, just .185 in August and a 5-for-36 skid over his final 10 games. 

The timetable for a return won't be known until they figure out what's wrong in there, so there's no certainty yet whether this affects any offseason plans. He played an awful lot last offseason between the Arizona Fall League and winter ball, trying to get back up to speed at third base.
 

Larish, who had been playing with a wrist injury before injuring his hand during the team's series in Columbus, will leave the team today.

The Tigers will only have to play .500 ball for the rest of the season and will still finish 4 games up in the Central.  The White Sodz are finding it hard to play with both hands firmly clamped around their necks and the Twinkies haven't been more than 2 games over .500 for the entire season and don't have any pitching to change that in the near future.  Central seems to be the division that no one wants to win this year.

OK, the Tigers go 2-8 while the twins go 8-2 and the gap is down to 41/2.  The Twin's have lost Morneau for the rest of the year, but still have 7 games to play against Detroit.  So, 2-8 isn't close to .500, but Detroit is still in the driver's seat.  Still looks like the divsion that no one wants to win....  Of course, the winner gets the fun job of heading to NY to get their butt's kicked by the Yankees in the first round of the playoffs.

Tigers are having a good run on KC.

The Opening Ceremonies at Comerica Park were a real tear jerker as Ernie Harwell took the field to say good bye.  
Wish I could have been there in person.....
Ernie, you've been the voice of baseball for me, and my grandpa every since I can remember the crack of the bat.

Anybody notice that the Twinkies are only two games back now?   I might just get a little excited and break out my homer hanky.

Yeah, nice way to end their days in the dome, by getting in to a pennant race with the Tiger's.  Unfortunately, the Tiger's finally managed to play .500 ball when they had to, taking 2 of 4 from the Twin's in Detroit.  Maybe the only time you'll find Twin's fans rooting for the White Sox.  Not exactly holding my breath here, but..... Twin's sweep the Royals, Sox take all three or two of three from Detroit and we got ourselves a playoff game!

As much as the new stadium is in a horrible location and is fairly small, the Metrodome is such a horrible place to watch a baseball game, that the new place will be wonderful by any comparison.  Good bye, dome ball!

I guess that gives Cabrerra a few hours to sober up...


 
DETROIT - If Miguel Cabrera hadn't been partying on Saturday morning, maybe the Tigers would have celebrated with champagne one day later.
Cabrera was intoxicated when he arrived at his Birmingham, Mich., home at 6 a.m. Saturday, according to Birmingham Police statements to the Detroit News and Detroit Free Press. Soon afterward, police responded to a call from his wife, Rosangel, saying that the two were involved in a physical altercation.

Ultimately, no charges were filed. But Cabrera registered a .26 blood alcohol concentration on a breath test administered by police at the station.

Think about that for a moment.

Some 13 hours before the first pitch of his team's most important game to date, Cabrera was "highly intoxicated," according to the police report. And even though Tigers president/general manager Dave Dombrowski was the one who reportedly picked up Cabrera at the police station in that inebriated state, the team enabled him to play that night.



Laughing for a moment, but addiction and the devastation it causes to families is really not funny.

was at the Wild home opener last night - for the first period + of the hockey game, there were almost as many fans out in the concourse of the arena watching the Twins as there were inside watching the Wild!  And both teams came back to win in overtime!  What a night!
