This 'n' that

UPDATE (9:53 p.m.): Tigers lose, but the Mets do too. Atlanta picks up one game in the NL East.

Not too much to say tonight.

Not feeling well at all. Looks like more surgery. Will keep you posted.

Detroit is leading Tampa Bay 3-1 in the top of the third. Tigers already have something like 5 hits, but Nate Robertson is on the mound tonight. Looks like he pulled something in his back a few minutes ago after throwing a pitch. Don't hold your breath, especially with this bullpen.

By the way, found another cool Tigers blog that includes a podcast. It can be found here.

Atlanta won in big fashion over the Milwaukee Brewers today 9-3. I was asleep all afternoon and missed the game. Here's hoping the Mets lose tonight.

Tom Stanton has written an intriguing new book called Ty and the Babe. The book examines the rivalry of two of baseball's biggest figures, Cobb and Ruth.

But this is no ordinary biography. It also focuses on a rarely-discussed golf challenge that the two men participated in throughout the country in 1941, the so-called "Has Beens Golf Championship."

Stanton has become of one literary baseball's shining stars since his excellent debut book, "The Final Season," about attending all 81 home games during the final year of venerable Tiger Stadium in Detroit eight years ago.

I'll post a review of the book at some point in the coming weeks, both on the blog and in the Shopper.

Tennessee softball opens up NCAA women's softball tournament championship play tomorrow night at 7 p.m. against Texas A&M. The game will be carried live on ESPN.

Monica Abbott has been named USA Softball Player of the Year.

Wish me well that I can pass the remaining kidney stones without needing surgery.

Good night, and good luck.
