About Mack Avenue Tigers
The mission of this blog is simple:
- Report a daily recording of what’s up with the Tigers and their division rivals.
- Give my personal analysis of games and statistics.
- Find answers to questions, my own and others.
- Look for other educated opinions on the Tigers, whether by fans or outsiders.
When I started the blog in April 2006, there were only two or three Tigers blogs I could even find on the Internet. I’ve experimented and made changes along the way, but I’ve always hoped to make this blog one of the first stops for a Tigers fan on the Internet. This blog appeared in Sports Illustrated’s baseball preview magazine in late March 2007 and can be found on SI.com’s Tigers page.
What about the name, you might ask? I was born at St. John’s Hospital on Mack Avenue and lived my early years in Detroit at Mack and Outer Drive in the East English Village. I wanted to honor that.
I write for a newspaper in Marquette and don’t get to see all the games, so I can’t always bring a whole lot post-game thoughts. But hopefully I can bring some original analysis, some interesting links, and a format that helps you start your daily Tigers fix all in one place. I’ve appeared in the Detroit Free Press, Michigan Hockey, Lansing State Journal and other publications with my freelance writing. Google news has a listing of my recent stories. Here’s probably my favorite clip of my work.
Facebook me if that’s your thing. We can play Scrabble…ulous.
