Detroit Tigers Links: Dave Dombrowski holds Twitter chat & Pete Rose gets own reality show

Jason Miller

Dave Dombrowski held a Twitter chat yesterday, Gene Lamont had an "eye problem" last season, and Pete Rose will have his own reality show on TLC. These stories and a very frightening A-Rod photo in today's Morning Prowl.

In Case You Missed It: Dave Dombrowski’s Twitter Chat
The Daily Fungo, Mike McClary

I'd like to point out that Dave started the conversation by signing onto Twitter with "How are my Twitters doing?" Pretty much made my day.

Not to sound insensitive, but it was pretty apparent that Lamont had an "eye problem."

Big League Stew, David Browns

This is easily ... easily ... one of the creepiest pictures I've ever seen. And this is coming from someone who had A-Rod posters (yes, plural) on their wall (judgement is not welcome) for the better part of their adolescent youth.

Only theory that makes sense is that they are actually trying to be terrible at baseball. In which case they are succeeding stupendously.

Was the Royals' strategy in their swap of Wil Myers and more prospects for James Shields and Wade Davis based on a broken windows theory?
