Al Avila: “You’ve got to go full bore from Day 1"

Recommended Posts

“You’ve got to go full bore from Day 1, because those few games at the beginning can mean everything at the end.” - - Al Avila

So much for the apologists who try to excuse mediocrity with platitudes such as "Pennants are won in September, not in April".

It'll be interesting to see what the Tigers are capable of now that big Al has declared that every game counts

His willingness to now acknowledge winning ballgames as even being important seems a pretty drastic improvement from the "everything is intangible because we are fully committed to our future" blubber he's been spewing the past few years.

I heard Miggy lost 50 lbs over the winter. And Inge tweaked his swing to make more contact. And Raburn is looking great at 2nd. And you never have to worry about Placido. Most underrated player in the game.
