    The business is booming. The on-field product has huge challenges. This is the first time in a long time I haven't bought the baseball package. It's just not that interesting.

    So many teams are following the Astros model
    As a Tigers fan, I’m much more interested in Toledo, Erie and Lakeland than I am in Detroit

    Just wait until there’s a guy on third who comes home and a guy who runs back after trying to steal first. They’ll have a glorious collision at home plate, with the catcher in the middle.

    Is that the first regular-season no-hitter thrown using the opener/ sustainer pitching format?

    I imagine there have been a few in spring training, but in spring training, having one guy pitch two innings to start the game is nothing unusual.

    And this is why I still love sports after all these years. Imagine what some scriptwriter would have done to juice this up if it were a movie of the week. Reality is enough, thank you.
