“It’s a Talented Group”

The Detroit Tigers made their final
move before April 5.  Clete Thomas has been sent to Toledo and Don
Kelly will travel with the team for the season opener against Kansas
City.

Don Kelly can play the outfield, as well as the infield. That had
much to do with his name being added to the 25-man roster.

But don’t be surprised to see Thomas in a Tiger’s uniform at times
during the season. He will be called up to help the team, especially if
someone ends up on the disabled list.

In the meantime, he can let his shoulder heal (hit by pitch), and he
will continue to use his time with the Mud Hens to improve as a player.
Jim Leyland recommended also,

The one thing he has to learn to do is to get regimented to
where every day is the same for him. He has to get in a concentration
routine every single day — and I think he will be an everyday
major-league player for a long time. (Detroit

Jim Leyland expressed that he believes the 2010 Detroit Tigers are a
“talented group,” adding that he likes this team “a lot.”

I must admit – I do, too. GO TIGERS!

    It’s crazy. The Tigers lost 2 All-Stars, a Gold Glover, and 2 top tier relievers, and this is STILL a talented group, with rising young talent, to mix with a couple of experienced veterans. I think it is a really good mix.

      I know that everyone is always optimistic during spring. But I think in the Tiger’s case it is more than that. With position players like Damon, Jackson, Ordonez, and Guillen – and a decent pitching staff led by Justin Verlander, this team is good and they will be competitive in the Central. Also, I’m looking forward to reading your predictions. Keep up the good work!
