Brandon and Ashley console themselves at yet another postponement for the Tigers by reflecting on the odd opening to the season. The Tigers could crumble in the face of better competition, and we’re not terribly concerned with wins and losses, but most importantly, they’ve been blessedly fun to watch so far. Meanwhile Justin Verlander is at his best when he leaves the drama on the field.

Under consideration...

  • The Tigers may not be too bad, but in an era of haves and have nots, the middle isn’t the place to be.
  • JaCoby Jones and Jeimer Candelario are getting Tigers fans all tingly.
  • Drew VerHagen is DFA’d, Blaine Hardy is a dominant starting pitcher now, and don’t ever do that with Shane Greene again, Gardy.
  • Justin Verlander as right-way guy isn’t the best Justin Verlander. Troll Justin Verlander, however, is pretty amusing.
  • Who’s hot on the farm?
