The Lights Were On But...

Progressive Field was the scene of a terrible mauling last night as the Tigers consumed the hometown warriors as they were offered in sacrifice in front of a horrified crowd. 13-2 was the final and it was all Tigers as they all but "insured" they would begin their "progressive" climb out of the Central Division basement tonight.

The Tigers wait in the dugout for their feeding last night.

Newly acquired Miguel Cabrera talks about his role with the Tigers in the Central Division of the American League.

It got so bad, Indians all-star catcher Victor Martinez lost count of how many base runners there were as he failed to tag a runner at home on a no-force play.
(Note to Mark Shapiro: That play alone should send you a message that if you wait for game #40 to make some adjustments, you will be blinded by the glare of the lights coming off of the empty seats. C.C. needs help as does the rest of this team. 15 games is more than enough to realize it's not going to happen by itself.)
To add insult to injury, another Detroit team beat up our Cavs on the same night in the basketball season finale.
Want more?
OK, today is the 48th anniversary of one of the worst trades in the history of the Cleveland Indians. Hometown hero Rocky Colavito was the Detroit Tigers for Harvey Kuenn.

We need a hero to step up and lead this team NOW because apparently there won't be any assistance coming from the coaches or the front office.
