Detroit Tigers Links: Brennan Boesch's Injury & Curtis Granderson on ESPN's E:60

This picture wins everything.

Brennan Boesch hurt his back, the Tigers are scouting John Lannan, and videos. Lots of videos. This and more in today's Morning Prowl.

Tigers links:

Leyland: Boesch "tweaked something," probably lower back - Jason Beck
"He hit one over the scoreboard and tweaked something," according to Jim Leyland. At least this means that the days of injuries because of Guitar Hero and pillows are gone, right?

Report: Detroit Tigers scouting Washington Nationals left-hander John Lannan - MLive, James Schmehl
If you don't like the idea of Lannan as the 5th starter this season, take comfort in the fact that Chien-Ming Wang will likely be the Nationals' back-end starter.

Johnny Damon Talks Free Agency, Yankees, Tigers - MLBTradeRumors, Mike Axisa
I'm still not 100% convinced that the Tigers won't sign someone, but that's mostly the Tokarz paranoia rubbing off on me. Regardless of your stance on Damon returning to Detroit this season, his comments are interesting.

Ms. Swan - Brain Matters
This picture has been up for a few days now, so I don't feel too terrified of The Wrath of Alli (TM) for linking to it. But yeah, you need to check this out.

College Basketball Tournament Pick'em - Yahoo! Sports
The NCAA tournament starts today, so this is your last chance to join BYB's bracket group and win a t-shirt with Kurt's face on it. (Note: prizes are subject to change without notice)

Salvador Perez Suffers Torn Meniscus, No Timetable for Return - Royals Review, Connor Moylan
If you thought Jacob Turner's injury was scary, then you really don't want to be a Royals fan right now. Actually, you probably wouldn't want to be a Royals fan anyway.

The Royals And Their Arms - Baseball Nation, Jeff Sullivan
I'm going to enjoy all of these articles about other teams' respective pitching staffs a lot more after we put up 25+ runs in a 3 game series sweep later on this season.

I thought that Washington Nationals closer Drew Storen was hilarious when he was interviewed in their game against the Tigers on Tuesday, so Amy K. Nelson's latest video is perfectly timed. Once again, Storen doesn't disappoint.

Chipper Jones remembers what it was like to be a teen phenom - The Washington Post, Dave Sheinin
With Chipper nearing retirement, it's interesting to see the comparison between his early career and that of the Nationals' Bryce Harper.

Yeah, Granderson’s a class act - It's About The Money
ESPN's E:60 recently did a nice segment on Curtis Granderson's interaction with the family of a Tigers fan that was killed during the shooting at Virginia Tech in 2007. As for the blog, anyone who comes up with an idea like this is is worth a bookmark.

Marlins: ‘We Are The Marlins’ theme song ‘has nothing to do with us’ - Big League Stew, David Brown
New stadium, new uniforms, and now a new theme song for the Miami Marlins. I'm pretty sure the team only denied any involvement because of how bad the song is.
