Caution: Rant Ahead
I'm sorry, but why was the Tigers/Venezuela exhibition not broadcast in some way, shape or form? Let's see, Armando Gallaraga was pitching for Venezuela, and Carlos Guillen, Miguel Cabrera, and Magglio Ordóñez were in the lineup facing the rest of our Tigers squad. Is that not compelling fare for Tigers fans? I must know then, why the Tigers failed to broadcast this game at least on radio. I know MLB network had to go with the "premier" Team USA/Yankees matchup, but why not air the Tigers/Venezuela game later on instead of endless repeats of other programming? After reading the Freep's and Detroit News' coverage of the affair, it would've been a lot of fun to watch, not only for the matchup, but also because of the fiesta created by some Team Venezuela fans. I feel like we missed out in a big way on that game. Boo.
