Detroit Tigers, Alex Avila Agree to $4.35M Deal

Detroit Tigers, Alex Avila agree to $4.35M deal – ESPN.

Yes! Did you know:

He was an All-Star and a Silver Slugger in 2011, his second full year in the major leagues. He led the American League in runners caught stealing in 2011 and ’12.

He hit .303 after the All-Star break last year.

Welcome back to the toughest catcher in the game!

Avila is 27 and has took more balls to the face than Miley Cyrus. You think he gets an incentive clause for getting hit? He should.

  • TIGERS STEAL HOME & YOUR HEART Perhaps, tonight, with a 7-2 hole looking them square in the face, did the Tigers save their season? Oldschool and I started out feeling optimistic. But our 3-2 counts = nothing, for we forbid the walk in favor of the swing, to no avail. In the end, I pouted and walked off, desperate to regain [...]
  • The Lost City of Detroit I didn’t realize how abandoned the city of Motown was until I took at class at the University of Michigan breaking down the “white flight.” I’ve written it before: the city of Detroit, like it’s sports teams, is actually in great current standing – yet the money remains in the suburbs still. Where are the [...]

Welcome, Wizards

TheSportingSnarf is a website dedicated to the humorous, nuanced, and enjoyable aspects of the sporting and (to a lesser extent) pop-culture world. We attempt to touch upon (in varying degrees of print/video length) engaging topics which are not discussed nearly enough. We'd love for you to give us your perspective, network, and participate regularly. But if you'd just like to join in on the mob-mentality and get all sanctimonious on a particular sports figure -- head on over to ESPN.com. (Mickey Mouse welcomes you.) Or you can keep it real with us.
