Motor City Sonics Posted July 18, 2022 Share Posted July 18, 2022 We've reached the point of the season where we pause. A pause interrupted by two games in Oakland this week. Two games the Tigers won't win because they never win in Oakland. Where are you at this point? What is your mind set? Are you......... Apoplectic. You expected at least a .500 team this year Disappointed. You knew they wouldn't be much better than 2021 Satisfied. Few teams have had to deal with the incredible amount of injuries (some of them bizarre) this team has this season. Hopeful - Still a lot of youth that has to figure it out at this level and no way several guys have their worst year at the same time again. Hopeless - It's really bad and it's probably not getting better in the second half or 2023 I feel Apoplectic and Hopeless at this point. And I'm just f**king sick of the suck in this town with ALL of our teams. All four major pro teams are at the bottom of their sports. I see hope for the other 3 teams. The Wings had a surprising first half last year and totally crumbled in the second half. New coach. More young talent coming. Some decent free agents that should strengthen the depth. The Yzer-plan. Three straight great drafts for the Pistons now. They have a very good young nucleus now. This is the only way a non-glam city is going to have a chance in the star-oriented NBA where everyone wants to play in the pretty cities. They also look like a group of team-oriented guys, which is the only way it's worked for us in the past in the NBA. The Lions should be entertaining. No lack of energy on that team. The coach is a goofball, but an entertaining one and his guys play for him. What's wrong with trick plays. What's wrong with Tecmo Bowl playcalling. If you're going to suck, at least be fun. The Tigers? All the current cards in the deck have now been played. No young star coming anymore. They've all been here now and most of them have been very disappointing. Probably not their fault, they were dropped into the middle of a disaster of a lineup. Can't hide 'em. We thoughy Green & Tork would be Lou & Alan and it's felt more like Kapler & Fick. Hell, give me Granderson and Higgy and I'd be alright with it. I know these 2 are better, but there is little support in the lineup. The Castros aren't supposed to play every day but they're doing more than much of the rest of the lineup, and that ain't much. Team just feels cursed. The draft is now, the trade deadline in a couple of weeks. I don't care about Chafin, he was a guy signed to be a chip, but Fulmer and Soto, I am very afraid at how badly Avila will screw these deals up. Don't have to trade them Al. If you don't get anything you want, just keep them. I am hoping that after the trade deadline has passed, that Al will be let go. If not then, then after the season ends. If that doesn't happen my levels of anger and hopelessness will be as high as they were in the early 2000s. Not excited for the return of Jake Rogers & Spencer Turnbull. Ryan Kreidler has come back to earth this year and Kerry Carpenter will probably do the same thing next year. It's bad folks.........Really bad.
