lordstanley Posted October 1, 2021 Share Posted October 1, 2021 Page 1 of 3 tiger337 Posted March 2 It is time for the annual bold prediction thread. This is not a thread where you take the medians of Baseball Prospectus simulations and use those for your predictions. This is a thread where you put down your spreadsheets and make predictions from your gut like a real man. Gehringer_2MotownSports Fan Posted March 2 Riley Greene plays in Detroit in 2021 leflore Posted March 2 Tarik makes the all-star team. Turnbull's era is sub 3.50. Miggy hits 27 HR. W Castro's ops is north .800. Longgone Neither Mize, Manning or Skubal make the opening day roster. Tenacious D Posted March 2 Did anyone in 2020 predict a global pandemic would wipe out the majority of the season? If so, I’m going with their boldyness and predictions. ROMAD1 Posted March 2 Sad prediction. Jim Price doesn't finish the season as analyst. Tenacious D Posted March 2 Willi Castro has more HR’s than errors ( both will exceed 20). Daniel Norris will be dealt by the deadline. Tarik Skubal is AL ROY. Jonathan Schoop will lose his starting job by at least August 1. Jose Cisnero will emerge as our closer Tigers season will be fun to follow and will still finish with a top 5 worst record. Biff Mayhem Posted March 2 I know that there are a lot of dissenters of Jim Price but I think we as fans are really blessed with him. He used to annoy me to death (especially when they experimented with him doing PBP) but you'll never meet a more joyful person and he exudes that on the broadcasts. chasfh Posted March 2 I'm with you on this. I've liked Jim Price for many years now. As deserved as criticisms may have been early on, I think he has become much more a tell-it-like-it-is color guy, and maybe working with Numbers-Don't-Lie Dan helped lead Jim to that. Plus, he was my player coach when I went to Tigers camp in 2008 and he was as swell a player coach as you can hope for. However he's doing and wherever he goes from here, I hope the journey is as easy for him as it can be. chasfh Posted March 2 Casey Mize will have season-ending SLAP repair, Tarik Skubal and Matt Manning will struggle all year, Joey Wentz will become the #1 pitching prospect with a strong debut once he does toe the rubber at Comerica, Spencer Torkelson will be called up in April after his service time crosses the line, and Riley Greene will start the season in Lakeland and top out at Erie. ROMAD1 Posted March 2 My worry is that his health is not great. I also have traveled a tortured path of arriving at appreciation for Jim Price roarintiger1 Posted March 2 Miguel Cabrera will lead the team in HRs, RBIs, and batting average. chasfh That's bold, all right! Although that probably also says more about the rest of the team than it does about 38-year-old Miguel Cabrera. ROMAD1 Posted March 2 I would put my money on Niko or Jaimer for all those categories. roarintiger1 Well, he wanted bold and from the gut.........So, there it was. 🙂 socaltiger Posted March 2 The Tigers will win 75 games leflore Posted March 2 Sad that after several bottom dwelling seasons 75 wins is a bold prediction, but it is! Casimir Posted March 2 Keep in mind, they won only 23 last season. Gehringer_2 Posted March 2 They also increased their winning percentage from 304 to 390 last season. 75 wins is a 460 winning % which would be about as positive a year to year improvement as I dare to hope for. ROMAD1 Posted March 2 The jump from 2003 to 2004 winning percentage was pretty huge. 39 wins to 71 wins. If we got that kind of jump i'd be delighted. sabretooth Posted March 2 I have always loved Jim Price. A passionate and warmhearted guy with deep roots in the organization. He is also a connection to the Tigers broadcast team going back to 1993, as well as Ernie. I will always associate him with the 2004 - 2014 teams, which were a ton of fun, and especially 2006, which ranks as my favorite season of all. I will miss him terribly when he is gone.
