I was wondering what people outside of the Mid-Michigan area think of the name & logo. The response in the area seems to be overwhelmingly negative. Nearly 80% don't like it in a newspaper poll and the comments posted online make that seem like a conservative number. There was a poll on the team website asking what people thought. It was quickly removed. I assume because the owners didn't like what they saw. I am wondering if the Great Lakes Loons will go the way of the Battle Creek Golden Kazoos and be changed before playing a single game. Ironically, the Kazoos and Loons are actually the same franchise.

I was pleased to note that Lance Parrish is the manager. What a great guy, and a great catcher for the Tigers.
Is this his time as a manager? Where else has he been coaching?
