A runny funny tale comes to us from the far reaches of oblivion today. More specifically, the Detroit Tigers’ clubhouse. The DETROIT FREE PRESS reports that the agony the Tigers have been experiencing since opening day is no longer limited to between the lines.
There’s a reason Carlos Guillen had a rough game — including two errors — Monday night at third base. “He can hardly move — he’s got hemorrhoids so bad,” Tigers manager Jim Leyland said Tuesday. “He’s been playing with hemorrhoids that probably need to be lanced. He probably shouldn’t have been out there (third base on Monday).”
Hemorrhoids that “need to be lanced“? Great. Thanks for that Jimbo. Guess I won’t be needing these anytime soon.

Will wonders never cease? The Kansas City Royals - yes, the Royals - are still sitting atop the AL Central, as they completed a sweep of the Detroit Tigers with a 4-1 victory at Comerica Park on Thursday.
