Hello Loyal Reader (or New One!)
Due to a recently discovered trademark issue relating to the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR), SABR Toothed Tigers was asked to change our name. Being the law abiding citizens that we are, we’ve decided to comply.
From here on out, you can find us here at New English D. We think it communicates the same message and nothing else about the site will change other than the web address and title. If you forget about the change, fear not, you’ll still be direct to our pages from sabrtoothedtigers.com.
Please poke around the site and check back daily for updates about the Detroit Tigers and MLB.
Hello and welcome to the pages of SABR Toothed Tigers, the Tigers themed, stat-friendly website that brings you coverage of major league baseball that is both sophisticated and humorous. I, the editor, have given the entire staff the day off to celebrate my in-laws 40th wedding anniversary. Click on the About tab above to see why that last sentence was humorous!
While we take today off, why don’t you check out some of the things STT has to offer. We have tons of 2012 Recaps, 2013 Predictions, and other fun series like The Book on… and The Nine. We also do ballpark reviews, baseball and culture posts, a growing library of Stats of the Week (which are updated weekly during the season), and Goofy Leaderboards.
And we, of course, have tons of baseball analysis. We have many posts on the Tigers and MLB at large to peak your interest, including our most read article ever about the cancellation of ESPN’s Baseball Today podcast.
If you’re into that kind of thing, we also write comedic posts that border on satire and intersect with other words that mean satire. These include an essay on Justin Verlander being baseball’s worst hitter and a request for Jim Leyland to join Twitter.
Please peruse the site and see what we have to offer. We hope you like what you see and would love feedback about the types of posts you’d like to see in the future. Share the site with a friend, or an enemy, we don’t mind.
This site, as you can read about in this inaugural essay, is a place to communicate about something we love. The Tigers. Baseball. Information. Lightheartedness. Optimism.
It’s also a place to come when the rest of the world is annoying the crap out of you. That’s what I do at least. When my other life bores or frustrates me, I write about baseball and it makes me feel better.
I hope it makes you feel better too.
