Ask Schmehl: On Al Alburquerque's foolish celebration and...

Before we dive into this week's mailbag, I want to applaud Al Alburquerque for the Houdini job he pulled off in the eighth inning Wednesday. Alburquerque kept the Tigers within striking distance of the Royals and deserved a pat on the back for his outing.
