  • Rob Parker of the Detroit News makes an excellent point regarding the Tigers' bad start and how the locals should respond to it: It's still baseball and you should not let a rough start ruin a lifelong love for a great game.

  • Then there are the Rockies who, unlike the Tigers, are off to a nice start. Dave Krieger of the Rocky Mountain News points out that while a good start is no guarantee of a good season, if nothing else, it's more fun to watch than a bad start.
