Talking baseball while wondering if Tom Thibodeau can make Deron Williams’ homecoming unpleasant: 1. When Robin Ventura introduced it in spring training, I loved the White Sox’s realigned batting order, with the 3-4-5 combination of Alex...
After the Tigers pounded the Red Sox 10-0 last weekend, Prince Fielder warned reporters there would be some tough days ahead. "We're not going to go 162-0, I don't think,'' he said. Nor even 161-1, as it turns out. The Tigers, who added Fielder to...
