Is it too soon for interleague play?

Question of the Day #2:

I don't know about you guys, but I'm not ready for the American League to start playing the National League yet. Didn't the season just start? Doesn't it seem like the Tigers have only played the Royals, Indians, and Twins? And now the Cincinnati Reds are coming to town?

Sure, it's just a taste. It's just for the weekend. Then the Tigers are off to play, well, the Royals and Indians.

After Memorial Day, however, Detroit gets their first big AL East test with the New York Yankees. (And for those of you who have been waiting for some national TV broadcast love, May 31's game is scheduled to be on ESPN2.)

Too soon or not, the Sweaty Men Endeavors staff will be checking out interleague play this weekend. I'm currently scheduled to take in Sunday's game at Comerica Park, as part of a Casselberry family day trip, in which I drop Mama Cass off at one of the Detroit casinos to gamble my inheritance away, while Lil' Sis tries to stay in her seat for nine innings and pretends to enjoy baseball. Should be a good one.

Bonus question: Has interleague play really been around for 10 years now?

    The problem with the Tigers and interleague play is that they don't have a natural rival. Cinci has the Tribe. The Cubs have the Chisox. It might be a little more intersting, but it's just another game.

    The Tigers are one of the teams that get the short end of the stick when it comes to interleague play.
