    They've been doing this with Yankees and Red Sox shit for years now.

    It sucks. Women who like sports will wear their team's colors.

    Women who wear pink should be blowing the players.

    Well said, Zeke. The Tigers have had some pink jerseys for the ladies for a while now too.

    It's stupid.

    Why not? They've been playing like they wear pink for years.  :D

    Ouch. You can get away with that because the Tigers have won 70 games on Aug. 1.

    Ain't nothing making Hank forget that.

    If they were doing the pink jerseys as part of the whole breast cancer fundraising thing, it'd be OK, but otherwise it's just patronizing bullshit. I hate it when men think they know what women want.  :mad:

    You all just want some deep dickin', right?

    And Hagen Daz. Can't forget that.

    Hank, on the other hand, apparently wants a Timberland in his ass.

    Liriano goes tomorrow. We'll get two of three.

    It's time to send Baker down and spot start this Garza kid. He can't do any worse.

    The only exception to the pink rule is any organization that is giving a healthy portion of the proceeds to groups battling cancer. I know the Philadelphia Eagles did that once, and undoubtedly other teams have done the same at one time or another. (Keep Pounding for one of my teams ... )

    Anything else other than that, it's dumb. Wear the team colors ... if you think they're too dark/brooding/masculine, there's usually a white jersey/sweater/sweatshirt/fleece/T-shirt available. While a couple of visits to Toronto doesn't make me an expert of their market, I somehow suspect the fans there - no matter the gender - prefer to buy blue sweaters.

    Yea, Baker hasn't had a good couple outings.

    But neither has Kenny Rogers. He's about one start away from being sent to the pen. Odds on favorite to replace him: Chad Durbin, who's been pitching well in Toledo. I wouldn't be surprised to see Humberto Sanchez get a start either if he's healthy.
