The woeful Detroit Tigers were just swept by the Athletics in Oakland to fall 18 games below .500. They managed a single run in 31 weekend innings as the offense continues to sputter and be entirely toothless. But hope springs eternal with news of a new slugger town. One with a bad attitude and a reputation for doing damage. Actual damage.
A man damaged a door and smashed several windows at Comerica Park overnight, Detroit police said Monday morning.
Police responded to a call at 2:25 a.m. and interviewed the security guard who discovered the damage. The suspect smashed glass doors and windows with a sledgehammer, then fled the scene on foot without taking anything, according to police.
The suspect is a white male in his 30s. He could have saved himself a lot of time and energy by remembering that all the Tigers’ money is tied up in back-loaded contracts for veterans past their prime.
