There's relief for metro Detroiters from the heartbreak of the Tigers' season. Taylor, Mich., is the annual host of the Junior League World Series and the finals are Sunday, August 23. Finally - some meaningful baseball in our area, in August! That's the Point!
I'll always love baseball, especially Tigers baseball, but it's difficult to watch this season conclude. It's as it every game, every inning, is a step toward concession. Here we are in August, already looking to next season. I'm ready for the hot stove league! That's the Point!
Off the Drawing Board: These are two other roughs I shared with my editor at Crain's Detroit Business for this week. After consideration and discussion, we concluded that Dave Dombrowski's departure was part of a bigger story overall, including the sell-off of players; leading to - most probably - a zero-sum in playoff dollars for the 2015 season.
