Motor City Bengals is a Detroit Tigers blog that covers all aspects of the organization. We hope to keep Tigers fans informed by not only bringing you the news, but providing insight and commentary that will spark discussion.
The Inspiration for Motor City Bengals comes from a variety sources including… The legendary voice of Ernie Harwell, Old Tiger Stadium, Cecil Fielder’s home runs, Jack Morris’ mustache, Sweet Lou and Tram turning two, Mickey Tettleton’s batting stance, Dave Dobrowski’s Cosby sweaters, Jim Leyland’s spikes (and his cigarettes), Miguel Cabrera’s soon-to-be MVP award(s), Magglio’s hair, Game 163, the 2003 season, the Randy Smith/Phil Garner era, Gibby’s homer versus Gossage, Darrell Evans getting picked-off third, the 1987 pennant race, the 1987 playoff loss, 35-5, John Smoltz for Doyle Alexander, the Juan Gonzalez trade, the Pudge Rodriguez signing, those gorgeous home whites, Justin Verlander’s no-hitters, Magglio’s walk-off blast, that smudge on Kenny Rogers’ hand, Dad and Grandpa, Zumaya’s fastball, Steve Sparks’ knuckler, Placido Polanco’s mis-shaped head, Papa Grande, and Larry Herndon making a running catch towards the left field line to wrap up the ’84 Series.
