Thoughts after 3 innings Tigers, Yankees Monday

- People aren't going to like this, I know, but a really good MLB center fielder catches that ball without any diving and by just running though to the ball. If you look at the route he took to the ball, it wasn't that good. But people love it because he dove. And they are going to love anything Ezequiel Carrera does. One, because he is not Austin Jackson. Two, because they root for the underdog.
