Morning Prowl: Fingernails Yanked, Piling on FOX Sports Detroit, and Buh-Buh-Buh-Billups!

If you think you're having a bad day, put yourself in Michael Hollimon's shoes. Dude might be getting his fingernail yanked out after getting it bent back by a throw in yesterday's game.

While we're talking about Tigers second base prospects, Jim Leyland thinks Will Rhymes is a dirtball. And he meant it as a compliment. Leyland also takes a funny shot at Sparky Anderson in the article.

How tricky can it be to play center field at Comerica Park? Curtis Granderson has some thoughts on the matter and is working hard to get better at it.

I'm with Old English D. How could the Tigers-Venezuela exhibition game have not been televised? (When 'Duk heard how long it was before any Tigers spring action was on TV, he was flabbergasted.)

Tiger Geist saw plenty of positives in the boxscore of that game, by the way.

DesigNate Robertson piles onto FOX Sports Detroit for not showing any Tigers Spring Training games thus far, especially considering that Sports Time Ohio has already shown quite a few Indians games.

Meanwhile, I'm mad that FSD put Chauncey Billups's return to Detroit on FSN Plus Tuesday night. (I was trapped in a place without digital cable.) Fortunately, Need4Sheed has video of Chauncey's introduction to the crowd. Buh-buh-buh-buh-Billups!

(Is there now any doubt now that that was a terrible trade by Joe Dumars?)

With the onset of spring, all things begin to bloom again. And so does Beefshower return with a post at Mickey Tettleton Memorial Overpass. The journey he's taken since October - physical and emotional - is epic... at least in terms of word count.

And don't forget to stay up late or set your DVRs, as the aforementioned Mr. Granderson will be part of the Team USA gang reading the Top Ten list on the Late Show with David Letterman tonight.
