The James Mungro Memorial Award finale: A sputter at the end and a controversial finish

The last time we checked in on our competition for the James Mungro Memorial Award sponsored by (sponsor pending), we had the greatest comeback of all time still alive, a pitcher with a chance at a scoreless spring training and the people’s champ. Now we have none of those. Jhan Marinez started the spring competition […]

James Mungro Memorial Award update: The greatest comeback of all time is still alive

The finale is coming. We’re two weeks away from the start of the regular season and possibly one away from naming our fifth winner of the James Mungro Memorial Award sponsored by (sponsor pending). Five players headed into this week. Three came out of it. One of them might be the most unlikely candidate of […]

Your James Mungro Memorial Award update: In which this turns into the best competition ever

This is the fifth version of the James Mungro Memorial Award sponsored by (sponsor pending). While the award’s history is short in time, it’s long in events. We found what possibly could be the most entertaining pitcher of a generation in the first go-round and a fun-loving offensive lineman who has a fetish for weird […]

Your James Mungro Memorial Award update gets bad before it gets good

We’re one week into spring training and/or the James Mungro Memorial Award sponsored by (sponsor pending) competition. The Tigers have played six of their 33 scheduled spring training games. There have been some spectacular performances and, for the most part, they haven’t been in a good way. But before we get to those, we need […]

Know your James Mungro Memorial Award nominee: Blaine Hardy

(Previously: Jhan Marinez, Craig Albernaz, Ezequiel Carrera, Trevor Crowe) Might as well close out the week with another nominee post. And since this is probably the last one of the season, we might as well close it out with somebody who has a legitimate chance at making the team. That man would be Blaine Hardy. […]

James Mungro Memorial Award 2014: The chase begins

Every time we find a new James Mungro Memorial Award sponsored by (still no sponsor) winner I do a few things to make sure I can track his every movement. One of those is to set up a Google Alert. When Jose Alvarez won, I actually made two: “jose alvarez tigers” and “jose alvarez”. I […]

Your 2014 James Mungro Memorial Award preview to the preview

The next iteration of the James Mungro Memorial Award sponsored by (sponsor still pending but this year’s the year, I can feel it) is still about a month and a half away from officially starting, but Thursday the first step in the process began. The Tigers announced their non-roster invitees. The magnitude of this announcement […]

Your Jose Alvarez/Jacques McClendon update makes two separate rosters again, gets cameo from Rodney Austin

First of all: That Tigers game was unfortunate. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, again, let’s get to Jose Alvarez and Jacques McClendon’s improbable survival. Alvarez wasn’t allowed to be on the postseason roster. Only an injury exemption would make him eligible. Then Tigers sent Phil Coke to figure out what’s wrong with Phil […]

Your Jose Alvarez/Chris Bootcheck Update breaks news

In two weeks this update will be half as long. The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders played their final game on Monday. Chris Bootcheck’s season is over. It ended well.  In his final two starts, Bootcheck combined to pitch 12.1 innings, allowing three earned runs, striking out eight, walking two, and earning a win in his final game. […]

Your James Mungro Memorial Award winner is…

Let’s get this out of the way: The dream is dead. The Lions won’t start the season with a winner of the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending) on their roster. Both Jimmy Saddler-McQueen and Rodney Austin were cut on Saturday and signed to the team’s practice squad on Sunday. That had no […]
