    Several years ago I lost a bet to somebody about a baseball game. I remember I lost to Giants lost to the Tigers. Anyway, I'm asking because a close family friend just got traded to the Tigers. As a matter of fact he was the winning pitcher tonight. So, please Tiger fans, be kind to Doug Fister, he's really a great young man outside of baseball. A truly wholesome kid.

    As a Seattle Mariners fan, I am really rooting for him. He did quite well here. Unfortunately, our offense never scored any runs for him. Great young pitcher! Fist`em Baby!

    Doug is going to do a great job for you. He really needed to be on a better team. Sorry Mariners fans.

    I think you guys are going to like Cassper Wells and Charlie Furbush over there in Seattle. I was actually sorry to see those guys go. I think they will both have long and successful careers, unfortunately it soes not look like it will be in Detroit.

    Been to Detroit recently? If he's really a friend, and he's really headed there, you'll buy him a Kevlar vest.

    Not really a laughing matter. Detroit is a war zone. Feral humans running rampant, police barely even attempt to control them anymore. Wouldn't consider going back there unarmed.

    I know he won't be living downtown. No athlete does. They live out in Bloomfield Hills and such, or in the case of Nick Lindstrom, he lives in Novi. The ballpark is beautiful. Getting there is not bad, just don't take a wrong turn.

    Oh, for Christ sake, Detroit isn't that bad. It's not a war zone. There aren't feral humans running around. It's a fine city

    Nice to welcome a new live arm in Detroit. I have lived in MI all of my life and I don't like going south of Saginaw. But everything north of m55 makes up for the bad news in the south. I'm in the process of moving to Ocqueoc.[near big mac] Bill Wheeler

    I live in Seattle but went to Detroit a couple years ago. I heard all these horror stories. Instead, the people were very nice, the baseball stadium was great, and we even found some good restaurants. It's still the USA. It's better than most places not in this country. Its not as bad as you guys are making it out to be.......

    The Comerica park area is a lot of fun, but it's not a very big area and if you get just a little bit off the beaten path, you WILL find yourself in a heap of trouble, especially when the sun goes down.

    No, Detroit is nothing at all like Chicago where you can roam around for miles on end and as long as you understand that and don't do anything stupid, you'll be fine.

    Yes, understand that.

    Otherwise, you'll be dead and stuff.
