  1. I'm not sure I like being ranked a rookie again... Apparently I need 14 more points to reach the next level, whatever that may be. Help a guy out and LIKE this post (and my others please)!

  5. I haven't seen him play personally, but the reports from those who have day that he's a natural SS and should stick there in spite of his size. I don't know if he's the answer at SS, but I think it'd be a mistake to not increase the team's talent via FA, with or without Kreidler. In the unlikely event that we end up with 2 good SSs, I'm sure we'd be able to figure it out.

  6. I was full on with term limits when they passed. I was wrong. It has been an unmitigated disaster in Michigan & I think would be even worse if ever adopted on a federal scale.

  7. How about this lineup: Akil Baddoo LF/DH/CF Robbie Grossman RF/LF Jonathan Schoop 2B/1B Carlos Correa SS Miguel Cabrera DH/1B Jeimer Candelario 3B/1B/DH Spencer Torkelson 1B/DH/3B Eric Haase C/LF/DH Riley Greene CF/LF/RF Reserves: Derek Hill CF H. Castro PH/DH/2B Dustin Garneau C - until Jake Rogers returns some combination of the gristle left over from the mess of W Castro/Niko Goodrum/Vic Reyes/Isaac Parades/Zack Short

  9. 22 years ago I walked out of Tiger Stadium for the last time..... I love this photo of my friend and I as we're still season ticket holders today. He's 63 now, had some serious health issues, multiple heart attacks, got covid this year the same week he got vaccinated, etc. But we got to go to 4 games together once he got his energy level up. We joke that I'm older now than he was then. Seems like yesterday.

  10. I turned because of Trump in 2016. I could not believe that clown was winning primaries. I thought the GOP voters lost their damn minds. They did. But now the scales have fallen from my eyes. To see slimebags like Cruz and Rubio bow down and kiss the ring made me puke. I will never vote republican again. So, in a way, I owe Trump a lot.

  20. No to term limits. All that would get us a a revolving door of transactional business assholes looking to swoop in, make some quick bucks off taxpayers and lobbyists, and then steal away with Washington connections in hand for future graft opportunities. It's bad enough that our system allows too many of those people as it is. Cementing it in legislation would drive out the remaining people who are dedicated civil servants and turn it into a true swamp, 100%.

  21. Tigers wore historic numbers to honor the greatest Tiger at each position I went to the last five games. The day before this, local boy Dave Borkowski pitched a gem (8 IP, 4 hits, 1 ER, 6K) and they pulled him in the 8th inning and I was so angry. Let the kid finish the game, his whole family is there, let him have the moment. C Brad Ausmus (#11 for Bill Freehan) 1B Tony Clark (#5 for Hank Greenberg) 2B Damian Easley (#2 Charlie Gehringer) SS Deivi Cruz (#3 for Alan Trammell) 3B Dean Palmer (#21 for George Kell) DH Robert Fick (#25 for Norm Cash) His own number, best Grand Slam I've ever seen in person RF Karim Garcia (#6 for Al Kaline) A crime that this guy got to wear that number CF Gabe Kapler (No Number for Ty Cobb) Is Kapler the last player to where no number? LF Luis Polonia (#23 for Kirk Gibson) I was in the first row, lower deck of LF, right over the scoreboard. Close up view as the all-time Tigers took their positions in the field. Fidrych was the first one out and of course he RAN to the mound, got down on a knee, started grooming the mound and pulled out a baggie. Willie Horton was about 15 feet in front of me, he was crying his eyes out. We (my friends and I) started taking bets on who would be the last out and I won.......I said Alan & Lou would come out together. I swear after all was done my friends and I lingered long enough to be the last ones to leave. We had an empty cup and we asked one of the on-field security guys to scoop some up and you can see the dirt from the field in that pouch with the ticket. It hangs on the wall right next to me. One of my most treasured possessions.

  25. I grew up listening to WJR. That and TSN were my only connection to the Tigers. I couldn't get day games, but the Reception was pretty good on clear nights. At times I had to hold the radio a certain way in order to get the games. Other times I had to figure out what was going on through the static. I got to be pretty good at following the game for an inning or two just hearing the intonation of Harwell's voice, the crowd sounds and the timing of commercials through the static.

  27. I bet Inge could've accomplished that feat if given the chance, atleast the 03-06 version. I think he wouldve been capable of handling short, maybe not full time but he'd be good enough to play there a couple dozen times a year.

  31. to review the in house options: Niki Groodrum: good arm, mediocre hands, plays back on balls too much to key many DPs. Has power but bat has become black hole, esp from left side. Under control until 2024, Also has options left but only for next season as he would be a 5 yr vet at the end of 22. Isaac Paredes: Can play SS, decent arm, but probably doesn't have the range to be any kind of good there. Hitting as a major leaguer is still total unknown but skepticism is high in many quarters despite his progress in raising his AAA OPS. Zach Short: pretty uniform opinion that he is an above average defender. Close to zero chance he can hit enough to be viable. Ryan Kreilder: Toledo staff say his glove is ML quality. He is currently hitting well beyond expectations for his projections. Can he do it at ML? Again - skepticism remains high but he is doing his best to go out and refute it. Willi Castro: No, No, and No. Unreliable arm, slow pivot, low baseball IQ and general situational awareness. And a bat that flashed in the short season but has also now disappeared-- though at least in his case he is young enough that he could find it again, as opposed to Niko who looks like he is just already on the downside of his career as a hitter. I won't say there is NO hope for Willi, but he needs a lot of work *in the minors* to figure out how to play competent ML middle IF. Harold Castro: Harold is a nice utility level guy, which is where he needs to stay. Bottom line is that I would rate the chances as still being greater than even money that none of those guys pan out so I'm good with pursuing a FA. You can always find a place for a bat if one of the other guys forces himself into playing time.
