DETROIT (JSC) — In retrospect, I’m not at all shocked that my beloved Detroit Tigers brought back Jose Valverde last night. Seriously, when I heard that he was signed to that minor league deal three weeks ago, the writing was already on the wall. Now, did I expect Valverde to be given the hot-shot treatment right from Single-A to the closer spot? No. Not even from the Tigers who tend to follow the typical Detroit sports team mantra of giving the old guys just “one more chance” despite all common sense arguments to the contrary. Now, what’s old is new again, the Band is basically back together, and The Big Potato will be back in Detroit spitting water in 3 directions, fist-pumping, DX Chopping, and moonwalking on the mound. Or, so the Tigers hope.
