I give ... almost

OK, just heard that Rondon is going to require Tommy John surgery.

I am very very close to pressing the DOOM button. Maybe after I cool down and the Tigers show us that they can win in spite of all the injuries, I might be persuaded to think otherwise.

But my God, this is just an never ending story headed toward disaster.

  • Dirk's doers a Schlereth through 2013 and is out for 1/2 of 2014
  • Iglesias out for the year, but people have known about his injuries since spring 2013
  • Now Bruce is gone, just as he was maturing into a super set up guy
  • At this rate Sanchez's arm will probably fall off on Tuesday
I know there is some good news. Miggy and JV are healthy. We have Max, Ajax and Castellanos are doing well.
But still, I hear Leyland's quote about the 2013 post season echoing in my ears: "we let one get away". This is a phenomenon that I've observed in nearly every sporting endeavor. The chance to win it all does not come around very often. If you have a chance and do not succeed, there is absolutely no guarantee that the next season will be so kind.
I fear that the Tigers Window of opportunity may have just slammed shut, I hope that that this is not the case and I'm only experiencing an intense case of emotional DOOM.
Time will tell
