What are you doing April 1?

Perhaps watching a baseball game? From a place called Target Field that the Twins and Tigers hope is at least clear of snow by the time Opening Day's first pitch is tossed?

And what do students of Detroit's baseball team foresee as they note Jim Leyland's gang is three weeks from pulling spring camp's stakes ahead of that flight to Minneapolis?

The Tigers have gotten lost this week in the necessary obsession with closer Bruce Rondon, whose virtual make-it-or-break-it appearance Friday at least bought himself and Detroit time as they nervously deal with the team's only serious issue.

That's right. The closer is at the moment about as close to a weak link as the Tigers feature.
