Nick Castellanos was chased by goats herded by monkeys on dogs – Kurt Mensching, Bless You Boys

"Tigers rookie Nick Castellanos was asked his weirdest baseball moment for’s chatting cage. It happened in West Michigan (naturally!).“They had this on field kind of event. I believe it was monkeys riding dogs herding goat. The goats decided, I don’t know why, but they all immediately ran after me.”"

So, this happened. A monkey riding a dog. Also goats. There’s video. See it for yourself, it’s…something.

David Price dazzles, lives up to hype in Tigers’ debut – Lynn Henning, Detroit News

"David Price did his job. Marvelously, so. He pitched Tuesday night on a par with the extraordinary artist and left-handed starter he is, and for so many years has been, long before he joined the Tigers in last Thursday’s thunderous deadline trade.And by the time the Tigers finally pulled ahead of the Yankees in the 12th inning, on Alex Avila’s rocket into the right-field seats, and beat New York, 4-3, at Yankee Stadium, the basis for Dave Dombrowski’s daring deal last week became clearer and maybe more defining for a Tigers team that’s trying to brand itself as a baseball champion."

David Price was not perfect, but he also pitched in one of the least friendly pitcher parks in MLB. He was former Cy Young winner, workhorse David Price, just as we hoped he would be. He gave up two home runs, but again, that’s something he does. He also struck out 10 and went 8.2. Not too shabby. Personally, I can’t wait to see him pitch in the home whites at Comerica Park.
