Blogs, Tweets & Trainwrecks

I think just about everyone in the world already knows this (at least everyone who reads Tiger blogs), but Curtis Granderson is not blogging for ESPN this year, he's contributing to Big League Stew.  I finally updated the link on my blog roll at right.  His posts have the title "The Grandstand."  Grandy's also Twittering on MLive.com under CG28, click here.  Michigan and Trumbull has rather ambivalently decided to Twitter also.  You can follow him here.  I have nothing against Twitter, but I've gotta be honest, it seems a little gratuitous to me.  I barely have time to keep up on the stuff I do read, so adding more from author's whose blogs I already read is a little over the top.  Now, it could very well be that I'm just not hip enough here, and that's fine.  Maybe the lightbulb will go on and I'll be jumping on the Twitter bandwagon tomorrow, who knows.

Um, Justin Verlander has now officially entered the realm of lost efficiency, lost confidence, or lost pitcher's identity.  It's rather excruciating to watch him pitch right now.  Thankfully, I fell asleep (again) for part of last night's game, and so I missed the last three of Justin's seven earned (debatable ER total, since Raburn misplayed two very playable balls in right that were scored as hits) runs given up.  Things are a little scary for JV right now.  I think someone needs to have a little chat with him.  I'm not sure what he needs exactly, but someone on the club better figure out what it is, and then give it to him.  He seems to exude a deluded sense of confidence/denial in some ways on the quality of his outings, but maybe that's just a mask for massive insecurities.

Hi, my name is Sean and I am a twitterer. I let it get me. Sometimes I don't like the face I see in the mirror. I need help.
