Tigers' TV play-by-play announcer Mario Impemba chimes in on the fifth starter competition. And like the rest of us (I'm presuming), he's very intrigued by Rick Porcello.
John Perrotto's Sunday column at Baseball Prospectus was largely devoted to the Tigers' "hype-free" Spring Training. Jim Leyland has a funny quote about all the "gingerbread" he gave to writers with all of his lineup shuffling last year.
Cameron Maybin compares playing with a veteran Tigers team to his current situation with a younger Florida Marlins club.
Sam Mellinger addresses a thought that's come up among some Royals fans: What if Kansas City signed Pudge Rodriguez?
(If that were to happen - and Mellinger says it's pure speculation - wouldn't it be weird to see Pudge possibly catching Kyle Farnsworth after the two were traded for each other last year?)
