DETROIT -- According to the Detroit Tigers, the decision to deny the Boston Red Soxs request to push back Thursdays 1:10 p. Barry Larkin Jersey .m. start time was not a punitive one.Red Sox general manager Dave Dombrowski, who was dismissed as GM by the Tigers last season, revealed this week that his old club declined to honor the scheduling change, despite a tough travel turnaround for Boston, which played a night game in Baltimore on Wednesday night.That raised some eyebrows among those who wondered whether the decision was made as a slight to the clubs former executive or to gain a competitive advantage over his new team.Tigers manager Brad Ausmus, asked about the situation before Thursdays game, indicated that the scheduling flap is a much more frequent occurrence than people realize.Every team in baseball, at some point ... has some type of schedule issue. They get in late. They have another game. It happens to every team, every year, Ausmus said. Its not ideal. The baseball schedule is hard. If I were the Red Sox, would I not like it? Absolutely, I wouldnt like it. But theres nothing vindictive going on here. Weve played Thursday day games all year long.Tigers GM Al Avila offered a similar response during a radio appearance earlier this week, citing an article in the Boston Herald that called the move bush-league.I did not think that write-up was that fair because, really, that 1 oclock start time on Thursdays here is popular with our fans here in Detroit, Avila said Tuesday on MLB Network.Dombrowskis original comments suggested that the Tigers might have denied the request to gain a competitive advantage.They traditionally have played Thursday afternoons during the season, although they dont always play [then] because if the roles were reversed, Im sure they would have played a night game, Dombrowski said, according to the Boston Herald. And Im sure they did it in some ways because they realized we would come in as a tired club, that they did it from a competitive perspective. Unfortunately we didnt have any rights to get it changed.Thats a fair point from Dombrowski. The Tigers and Red Sox remain American League foes, with the Tigers trailing Boston in the standings and entering Thursdays game 3.5 games back from the second wild-card spot.Should the Tigers even be expected to grant the Red Sox any favors when it comes to a scheduling concern?No -- were not going to do them any favors. The Baltimore Orioles didnt do them any favors. They didnt have a day game on getaway day, Ausmus said. It really boils down this being bargained in the collective bargaining agreement in terms of what the travel parameters are. Its within the parameters.Dombrowski confirmed to ESPN that the Red Sox also asked the Orioles to make Wednesdays game -- Bostons getaway day -- a day game, but that request was denied as well.This is not considered uncommon, according to Ausmus.We asked a team earlier this year and they said no, Ausmus said. It happens.At least one Red Sox player was not happy about the situation. Red Sox infielder Travis Shaw tweeted:Some in Detroit have brought up the Detroit Lions preseason game on Thursday night as a reason the Tigers might have declined the request, considering the traffic issues two night games could create. Dombrowski shut down that notion, telling reporters on Thursday that the request was made in the offseason before the NFL schedule was released. Joey Votto Jersey . Duchene scored two goals and had an assist, helping the Colorado Avalanche beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 on Friday night to match the best 10-game start in team history. Johnny Bench Jersey . I cant pinpoint a date, but I do remember a player from my youth. Brian Downing was with the Chicago White Sox at a time when I listened to every game I possibly could on the radio. That particular season the late great Harry Caray was calling the White Sox games. http://www.redsgearshop.com/Reds-Tom-Seaver-Kids-Jersey/ .C. -- When North Carolina freshman Ryan Switzer reported to training camp in August he was a little miffed to learn he was third on the depth chart at punt returner.
