SETTLE DOWN FOLKS….IT AIN’T GONNA’ HAPPEN, except,

Since Pujols committed his act of treacherry and once more showed the ugly side of MLB…WBWF has been
recieving the same old “THAT’S IT ! I’VE SEEN MY LAST GAME OF BASEBALL” kind of letters. However this
avalanch of messages was stronger than I’ve ever seen. So I decided to do some reseach into the subject
looking at the THREE BIG PRINCIPALS: OWENERS, PLAYERS and FANS.

This is gonna’ be short ‘N’ sweet fans. Let’s look at the owners first. With the owners IT’S ALL ABOUT $$$$$!!
Don’t listen to their whining when a few show up with red ink. When Curt Flood galloped across center
field and ownership left him finish his ride…IT WAS ALL OVER. That’s why a so-called sweetheart like
PUJOLS can tell his beloved ??? St. Louis fans to take there trillions and shove it. So this part of my research
ended in silliness: AS LONG AS THE MAJORITY OF THE OWNERS ARE MAKING PROFITS THEY’RE PASSING!

Now here comes the laughing and triumphant players. Boy, they should erect 30 golden statues of CURT FLOOD and place them in front of each one there locker rooms. They should do something to bring this
ball player to saint-hood. Well, fans you can see where this is headed. Both the OWNERS & PLAYERS
love their self built paradise. THEY LOVE IT! Hey let’s raise the price of hot dogs. It’s a sin to sell themfor only $25 !!!

So there you have it…but wait I said we had THREE PRINCIPALS, right? Yes, there’s still ONE left. And as
strange as this might seem….YOU ARE THE STRONGEST OF THE LOT. STOP GOING OUT TO SEE THESE
PUJOL’S AND FLOODS ….SCREAM IT OUT AND PUT AN END TO THIS CALAMITY, “I’M TIRED OF THIS BULL
CRAP……BRING BACK the “G”MEN GREENBERG, GEHRINGER AND GOSLIN”!!!!

WAY…WAY…WAY…OUT ON A LIMB!

I’ve never gone this far out into the green leaves at the very end of a tree’s limb.

BUT HERE I GO…I’m predicting that DAVE DOMBROWSKI will sign YOENIS CESPEDES!!
HERE’S WHY: 1) MR. D. flew all the way to THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC to see him play;
2) AUSTIN JACKSON, in the vital leadoff spot, struck out 351 times in 2 years!!!!
3) Because Dombrowski is telling the press: “I don’t want to tip my hand”, when
asked about the status of CESPEDES.
About #1, To fly that far out of his way took something special and that “something special” was the
Cuban kid playing baseball. HE PLAYS WITH THE FIVE TOOLS FOR BASEBALL GREATNESS.
He runs like a deer!
He can throw better than any MLB player can!
He can hit the long ball!
He can hit for average, ala TY COBB!
He’s a magician with his glove!
And Dave Dombrowski fell in love with him…which brings us to number #2. The Tigers can no longer
watch Jackson go up to the plate and waste his blazing speed as he strikes out just under TWICE A GAME!!
CESPEDES will drive the opposition wild with his electric talents.

And then there’s Dombrowski’s failure to talk about the Cuban kid. Those of us who follow the MODUS
OPERANDI of DAVE DOMBROWSKI know excactly why he “WON’T TIP HIS HAND.”Boy have we heard that
one, ughhhh? In my crystal ball way out here in these green leaves I can see YOENIS CESPEDES playing
catch with MIGUEL CABRERA. Catch me if I fall!

THREE TERRIFIC PROBLEMS TO HAVE!

If you’re a Tiger fan you probably know exactly which three problems we’re talking
about…the first one could become a hall-of-famer, ALEX AVILA. He has shown guts
(an important ingredient for a catcher) and listning ability. After the ALL-STAR break
he hit ,295, 82 RBI and came in with a .375 BA against the Rangers & Yankees. AND
HE LISTENS!! Shows good parenting and it pays off for ALEX as he was the starting
catcher for the Al ALLSTAR TEAM! Conclusion: NO PROBLEM HERE.

The second so-called problem, VICTOR MARTINEZ, has turned a problem area into a
huge plus factor. When the Tigers were looking for a solid, productive bat to fill in
the 5 hole slot behind CABRERA, in steps MARTINEZ to hit .330 ! and knock in a whopping
103 runs. Conclusion: A problem now one of the Teams feel good stories!

The third problem slot is still wavering and is difficult to understand. A dependable 2nd
sacker? When given the chance RAMON SANTIAGO , hit .295 after the mid season break.
Then, during the RANGERS/yankee series he slugged out a .375 BA! The way the Tigers have
used RAMON has always been a mystery to this writer. HE HAS STARTING LINEUP abilities
that are obvious and yet there he sits. It has come to our attention that the Tigers have just
signed him to a two year deal for 2.5 M per year, CONGRATS RAMON! Now, MR. LEYLAND:
L E T H I M P L A Y !!!!

YAENIS CESPEDAS, THE TIGERS ARE IN HIGH GEAR!

Our inside source reports to WBWF that the TIGERS are pulling out all the stops to
acquire this five star 20 year Cuban outfielder…he has alreadfy loosened his ties from
Uncle Castro, as he fled to the Dominican Republic some time ago. Our source tells us
that the Tigers so called “slight interest” in YAENIS is a smoke screen and that they are
pulling out all of the stops in their pursuit of this future hungry Super Star. That fits.
Hasn’t it always been DOMBROWSKI’S style to operate quietly until the forms are signed
and sealed. ANYWAY, REMEMBER that name: Come February he might be trying on an
English D uniform.

Also, MARK BUERLY, is in the Tiger’s gun sights. He’s a different target though from CESPEDAS.
MARK is a proven MLB southpaw with a no-hitter in his collection and some brilliant numbers.
If our source is correct though, don’t be surprised to see the Tigers even go stronger afrer the
Cuban kid than Buerly. With the thinking that Youth & speed outnumber age.

One last sore spot…why do the Tigers continue to play this CAT N’ MOUSE game with a true
baseball gamer? CARLOS SANTIAGA will walk away if they’re not careful and led by mr. D
they will all have eggs n’ beer all over their face!! The way they have treated a true Tiger is
DISGUSTING!!
