The Tigers placed veteran, legend, ace Justin Verlander on revocable waivers the other day and the internet was abuzz. Your friendly neighborhood bloggers are here to tell you what it all means.

Notes: Tigers go for the sweep over the White Sox today.
So, Miguel Cabrera’s been a little busy lately! The Tigers’ first baseman—on the shelf this weekend with a strained oblique—unveiled his new venture, BitBits candy, at Comerica Park today. BitBits appear to be crispy, bite-sized, bits of “chocolatey fun” that come with their own… Whoa, what the heck is that thing.

I’m going to be seeing Chris the Crown in my nightmares. And I think Miggy will be too.
Tigers twitter knows a meme to run into the ground when they see one, and Chris the Crown did not disappoint.

The BitBits will be sold at Comerica Park starting this weekend, according to Matthew Mowery, and then will expand across the Midwest, until they conquer the 48 contiguous United States.

THINGS OF NOTE: Justin Upton is being held out of the lineup due to that forearm contusion he suffered in the game last night. He’ll also probably get tomorrow off too. J.D. Martinez took batting practice with the team and is visiting with them tonight! After they head off to Minnesota, J.D. will go to Lakeland to continue to work out.
