    Another ugly, ugly loss. Tigers get blown out by Sox 13-2 to go 0-6 to start the season. Offense has been non-existent, pitching stunk, and defense showed some holes. Hopefully, going on the road will help team's morale.

    I don't really keep up with the NFL but I doubt that the Lions have one of the highest payrolls in their league.

    Actually, Lions were never tight with money and their payroll is in the upper tier of the NFL. Funny how things are, aren't they?

    By the way, this is the first game I get to watch and it is such a stinker today.

    There is no such thing as high or low payroll like MLB and NBA. Cap controls all teams spending to the same level. It's how and where it's spent that is good or bad.

    How bad was that for Dumbrowski? Sitting there with the Sunday Night Crew and watching the team disintegrate in front of them.

    The 2007 NFL payrolls ranged from $75 million (NY Giants) to $123 million (Washington). I don't think that is spending to the same level.

    I had the same feelings in 2-4, 6-9 and the Badboys lose to Bulls

    I was sadden by Vlady and had to look up who Owen Hart was...but I recall the incident.. and that's coming from a father whose son flew from California to Orlando a week ago to attend Wrestlemania 24 in person:nerd2:

    Maybe what the Tigers need is some Road Cooking....or a look at the Green Wall...But why do I have a feeling like the Tigers will be 0-9 when they head into Chicago next weekend??

    Well, the difference between this and all the other episodes is that in all those cases there was no tomorrow, and this season is only 6 games old. I have to admit that saying this doesn't make me feel any better, but there's still hope, especially if there's hope for Lions than there should be lots of hope for the Tigers.

    Like to know how they come up with that since the cap is $116M. Like I said, depends on how some teams spend it or not.

    Doesn't look good for Tigers in the 1st game in Boston so far. After 4 innings they are down 3-0. They only have 1 hit with 4 K's. Kenny has thrown 89 pitches.

    And they leave the bases loaded on the top of the 6th. I wonder if they'll get another chance to get back into the game.
    This is frustrating, as Tiger's middle of the lineup can't get that "timely hit". Magglio comes up with 2 on 1 out and strikes out. And then Guillen flies out with bases loaded. This is just sad.

    How can all of these good hitters be slumping at once? Terrible.

    It doesn't seem as though anyone has an answer to that puzzle.
