It’s cold outside and it is only going to get colder before spring is finally upon us. But that does not mean that Detroit Tigers’ baseball is not right around the corner!
On Monday, the Tigers released their official 2019 Spring Training dates.
From Detroit Tigers:
Tigers pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report to camp on Tuesday, February 12, with the first pitchers and catchers workout set for Wednesday, February 13. Position players are due to report to Lakeland on Sunday, February 17, and the first full squad workout will take place on Monday, February 18.
This spring will mark the Tigers 83rd season at TigerTown in Lakeland, extending the longest-standing relationship between a Major League team and a current Spring Training host city. The 2019 spring season marks the club’s 54th consecutive season of exhibition play at the newly renovated Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium.
When it comes to Detroit Lions‘ quarterback Matthew Stafford, either you love him and think he can lead the team to the promised land if surrounded with the proper talent, or you think he is worthless and put the majority of the Lions’ failures squarely on his shoulders.
With the Lions’ struggles in 2018, a growing number of Stafford haters began to talk about trading him as soon as possible.
For those of us with a brain, we know there is no chance that Stafford is going anywhere. Not this year. Not next year.
But to be honest, it really does not matter what any of us think. It only matters what Lions’ general manager Bob Quinn thinks.
Well, on his season-ending press conference on Friday, Quinn made his feelings on Stafford very clear, so listen up.
