DELMON YOUNG IN EXILE IN MEXICO

He was the No. 1 pick overall. People said he would be the LeBron James of baseball. Instead, Young became known for his violent temper and for being the anti-role model. How did a top prospect with such promise fall so far, so hard? And can he come back?

Tigers Pitching Coach Chris Bosio fired for “insensitive comments”

Detroit Tigers pitching coach Chris Bosio was fired for “insensitive comments” to a team employee per the article.  Why is this person not described as a co-worker?  Because Bosio is in the dugout and this person is not?  And Bosio is the same clown, I mean person, who insinuated that Eric Thames was using PEDs when Thames was on a hot streak.

The Detroit News: Mickey Lolich: How Ilitch dashed his pizza career dream

A state trooper came up to the car to ask where we were going in such a hurry, and Mike replied with urgency in his voice: “I have to get this guy to Utica! He’s supposed to be signing autographs at Little Caesars! We’re way behind schedule!”

“Who is this guy?” The officer asked, not knowing who else was in the car.

“It’s [bleeping] Mickey Lolich sitting here!” Ilitch replied. “He’s fresh off winning three games against the St. Louis Cardinals.”

“Well, I’ll be damned,” the trooper said. “You better get going or else you’ll be late.”
