Franzen Re-signs with The Red Wings

  • Ken Holland has done it again. He has locked up Forward Johan Franzen for the next 11 years for less than 4 million against the cap per year. I am ecstatic for this deal. If I had to choose one player to re-sign, honestly I would take Franzen. His hands and size are amazing and has the knack to make big goals in big situations.
  • The Tigers have righted the ship returning to .500 with a win over Texas. Verlander had a solid start with 8 strikeouts in 5 innings. To shut down the best offense in baseball is impressive as the pitching is coming around. Miguel Cabrera is on fire and is continuing to play as well as he did at the end of last year.
  • The Cubs wasted a great start by Rich Harden losing to Milwaukee 4-3 yesterday in Miller park. Harden had 10 strikeouts in 6 innings (the prototypical Harden start) as the bullpen could not shut down the Brewers. Kevin Gregg has looked shaky at best as the closer, but I am not calling for Carlos Marmol to close....yet.
