15 items to make the 2008 Tigers season enjoyable

March 28th, 2008 at 10:25 am bt Billfer ay Detroit Tiger Weblog...

My wish list for the Tigers 2008 season. Things like Winning the World Series aren’t on there, because that’s kind of a given. This is merely my list of things I’d like to see that may indicate some success and/or make the season more enjoyable.

1. Opening Day doesn’t get rained out. I’m not just being selfish here because I’m going. But the Opener is such a great party, one of the best days in the city.

2. Grand Circus Park Garage doesn’t raise prices. The location is great and it was a $5 bargain as recently as 2005. But it was up to $15 last year and probably going higher.

3. FSN Detroit beefs up their stats. Please, please give us more than batting average/home runs/RBI. Let’s start with OBP and maybe add slugging as well. I will say they do a good job with pitching stats.

4. The fan base doesn’t overreact when the offense has a bad week. It will happen, both the bad week and the overreaction.

5. The fan base doesn’t overreact when Todd Jones has a bad week. It will happen, both the bad week and the overreaction.

6. That Todd Jones doesn’t have too many bad weeks. ‘Cuz there aren’t a lot of other options.

7. Pudge makes bringing him back in 2009 a tough decision. Spring stats are spring stats, but Pudge has been huge this March. A productive Pudge will be a boon to the bottom of the lineup.

8. A bunch of teams pass on top prospects due to signability concerns in the draft. Because the farm system needs some top shelf talent.

9. That one of the toolsy Latin American minor league players turns into a stud and quickly. (See above) Wilkin Ramirez, Audy Ciriaco, Alexis Espinoza, come on down.

10. Rick Porcello has a productive and healthy season. (See Above)

11. Curtis Granderson wins a Gold Glove. It means he was healthy, was pretty good defensively, and also had a big offensive season.

12. Joel Zumaya hits 100mph on the gun. Not only would it help to have him back full strength, I just think it would be a tremendous shame if 2006 was it for him.

13. Jeremy Bonderman pitches 200 innings. If he’s healthy, he’ll be great. If he pitches a full season, it means he’s healthy.

14. Another errorless season for Polanco. Let’s keep the streak going.

15. The Tigers win everything. Okay, I cheated. I want this World Series. I want a Cy Young. I want an MVP. I want it all.

What’s on your wish list for the 2008 Tigers?
