The people have spoken! The roar of Tigers fans around the country cannot be ignored. Placido Polanco has taken the lead in AL All-Star voting at second base.

Episode #17 of The Detroit Tigers Podcast has been posted for your downloading and listening pleasure. This week, Mike McClary talks to Mario Impemba and Lynn Henning about Justin Verlander's no-hitter. How's that for some response time? (I'm not sure how I feel about the Wham! reference in Mike's headline, however.)

If you missed it, USA Today showed some love for Magglio Ordonez yesterday. Is it possible even his own teammates overlook him among the game's best right fielders?

Michael Rosenberg thinks Justin Verlander is well on his way to becoming part of Detroit's (modern-day) sports Mount Rushmore.

As you might expect, Mark Buehrle was rooting for Justin Verlander to not get a no-hitter. And afterwards, he uttered a phrase I've absolutely come to despise. No one is trying to take your no-hitter away from you, Buehrle.
