The Bless You Boys editorial staff looks at the week in baseball from a Tigers perspective.

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at Detroit Tigers Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

Ashley and Brandon return on Day 2 of the MLB draft, but the Tigers matchup with the Rays, and more particularly, the lows and highs of one day with an aging superstar, ended up stealing the show.

  • Miguel Cabrera’s knee will never be right, as announced on Tuesday. Of course, he then had a three-hit night with a grand slam for good measure.

  • Tigers/Rays tears Ashley apart, and it’s fun.
  • Day 2 of the draft is where it all starts to blur into a forest of solid tools, athletic builds, and strong makeup game.
  • The offseason never ended, and the final two big free agents may finally sign soon.
  • Assignments for new draftees, promotions for prospects, and re-evaluations of farm systems are all on the docket between now and the All-Star game.
