The BYB staff talks baseball from a Tigers perspective.

BYB staff writers/editors Brandon Day and Ashley MacLennan are back after the holiday break, and there is much to discuss.

We’ll tackle the weirdness surrounding the Tigers decision to end the winter version of Tigerfest in favor of doing in July, and why that seems like a terrible idea poorly communicated.

General Manager Al Avila still isn’t happy with the job fans are doing and issued his bi-yearly complaint session on Thursday.

The Tigers did reinvest their Nick Castellanos savings in a few solid stopgap players this offseason and we’re reasonably happy with their choices.

The club also brought back reliever Alex Wilson, who resumed graduate studies in psychology last year and will function part-time as the Pitcher Whisperer.

And finally we’ll discuss Dan Dickerson’s fanpost on the baseball itself, the juiced ball era, and the league’s failing credibility on this and other issues.
