Tigers Solve their Gull Problem

The Detroit Tigers may have found a way to stem the seagull invasion that has occurred at Comerica Park the last two games. Late word out of Detroit indicates that the Tigers have reached a tentative agreement with the Arizona Diamondbacks to lease star lefty Randy Johnson for the Tigers' series finale with the Brewers this afternoon.

Johnson will be on hand to fire fastballs at gulls between innings of today's game, in an effort to cull the flock.

"Randy was scheduled to pitch a side session today anyway, and you know he was happy to get out of New York," explained Diamondbacks manager Bob Melvin, whose team is finishing up a series in the Bronx against the Yankees. "This just made a lot of sense."
