2022 Pistons Offseason
Lets talk about the Pistons 2022 offseason. Look on the bright side... we're no longer paying Blake Griffin.

2021-22 Tigers Hot Stove League
Position players needed: 1. SS; 2. Catcher; and (maybe) 3. someone to bounce between 1b/OF/DH until Tork and Greene arrive, but clearly they are both going to be in Detroit early if not Opening Day. Mark Cahna on low end / Schwarber on high end

DH – Miggy – not yet, but soon, he will be in the way of a better player.

C – Haase; add Tucker Barnhart as starter, a LH bat on a one year deal. Then Rogers and Dingler join Haase in 2023.

1b – Tork will finish season here; until then Miggy/HCastro/Niko/Canha?/Schwarber?/Rodriguez?

2b – Schoop, where he belongs

SS – Semien or Story or Correa

3b – Candy

Paredes, Clemens, Kreidler at Toledo; it will be a good problem to have to try to get looks at all of them (maybe Short as needed too), especially if they keep both Niko and HCastro.

OF – Baddoo/Victor/Hill/Grossman until Greene comes up, then: Grossman in RF, Greene in CF, with Baddoo in LF, Hill or Daz as 4th OF. Victor will hang around some.

WCastro in LF at Toledo? Not sure why they just do not cut the cord. JaCoby and Stewart will depart as MiLB FAs as well.


Tier 1: no one yet

Tier 2: Mize, Skubal, Manning

Tier 3: Alexander, WPeralta, FREE AGENT

Tier 4 (unknowns): Wentz, Faedo, Shore, Garcia

Bullpen: Fulmer, Cisnero, Funk, Lange, Soto is a nice start. An elite BP might be easier to build than an elite rotation (see Brewers). If so, add Raisel Igelsias and Andrew Chafin (LHR).

2022 NFL Draft Thread
So another season has gone down the drain and yet again, all we have to look forward to is the NFL Draft. So, with a new regime in place and likely a top 3 pick plus another 1st rounder in hand, let the speculation begin as to who we pick.

General Tiger Discussion
Figured we could use this to just talk about general Tiger stuff outside of a game thread... and anything else baseball related.

Some movement in the development staff as the team let go a bunch of guys, Willie Blair/AJ Sager, and their Latin PD guy.  Looking for a new PD director.

Also, did you all see the Houston play the other day with the appeal?

Sacrifice fly to right, runner scores, another runner advances to third.  The scoring runner left early.  As they appeal, the Houston runner breaks for home.  The pitcher gets him in a rundown and tags him out.  But then they lost their appeal opportunity.  Houston traded a run for two outs.  Genius.

2021 Detroit Pistons PreSeason Games
I wanted to start a thread about the Pistons, because for the first time in a while I am pretty excited to watch some games and see what they can do this year.

It has been since they traded Chauncey away since I have really paid attention.  I watched some with Griffin and Drummond, but not much.  

I am planning on watching many more games this year.  I Hope they gel and win some games.
