-Earl Warren

So, with that, let’s turn to the sports pages. I’m focusing on the Tigers this morning, and so are these bloggers.

Big JP at Always A Tiger discusses his anger at the early all-star vote totals and whether the vote should be taken away from the fans.

Jennifer Cosey at Old English D shares her thoughts on youngster Rick Porcello and his winning streak; it's full of Michigan flavor and fun to read.

ROGO from DesigNate Robertson compares Gary Sheffield and Clete Thomas. This made me giggle a bit, I admit it.

Kurt from Mack Avenue Tigers updates the rehab situation with Marcus Thames and Jeremy Bonderman. His was informative, as always.

If you enter May 28 at Today In Baseball History, you’ll see that Willie Mays hit his first MLB home run on this day in 1951, and the Tigers and White Sox combined for a record 12 home runs in a game on this day in 1995.

Scott Warheit at The Cutoff Man discusses the excellent job Gerald Laird has done handling the Tigers' pitchers, a truly underrated facet of his game.

Lee at Tiger Tales posted a terrific breakdown of the Tigers' team defense this year. It's definitely worth a read.

Bilfer at the Detroit Tigers Weblog gives the rundown on yesterday’s Minor League results; it’s a staple in my daily reading.
