Edwin Jackson Debut Tonight

I don’t think the Tigers can repeat the disastrous 0-7 start of 2008.

They can’t. They won’t.

So, with that in mind, let’s take a deep breath, and begin again.

Tonight is the debut of former Tampa Bay Rays pitcher, Edwin Jackson. Statistically (if numbers mean anything), Jackson should have a successful outing at The Rogers Centre. In his last five starts against the Blue Jays, he is 2-1 with a 2.87 ERA. He has limited the Blue Birds to a .254 batting average. Additionally, he has posted a quality start in three of those starts.

Jackson is only the second pitcher in Tigers history to be born in Germany. The first, was Bun Troy who appeared in only one game on September 15, 1912.

The Rogers Centre will have an alcohol free environment tonight, so drunken, rowdy fans shouldn’t be a problem.

If Jackson is really good this evening, and the bats can provide some punch, we can quiet them down in a hurry, and send the majority of the fans home by the sixth inning.

Hey, it is all in the positive attitude!
