    What exactly does this team need?

    They can cut Keenum and save 8 million, will still have a 10 million dead money hit though. Or keep him and pay 21 million. YIKES! Broncos are better than the Ravens, I think Flaco might actually be OK for them in the short term. Talking heads on ESPN hate the move, and I get that from a cap prospective. But I believe Flaco is an upgrade over Keenum, even though they had similar numbers in recent years.

    Machado is 26. I still think he is going to command a huge sum of money. Rumor is he turned down a 8/250million deal. Rosenthal is reporting Harper and Machado both want 300 million deals.

    When the starting catcher is completely unproven.... yes.

    Right, I get the Tigers are going with a youth movement. But they should at least try to field a competitive roster. It seems like the Tigers want to go full tank mode.

    Exactly.

    I am not sold, but even if he is, isn't going to catch every game. In the event of injury Hicks isn't an everyday option.

    I sure wish the Tigers would sign a back up catcher. Back up catcher get a lot of work now days. Hicks is a good option as the 3rd catcher, which provides for flexibility. A cheap veteran backup catcher would help handle the staff and help younger pitchers develop and gain confidence. He would also assist in showcasing veteran pitchers in an effort to trade them. Not asking them to break the bank but someone like Matt Weiters would be a good insurance policy and knows how to handle a staff. Would also be an asset to help develop Greiner.

    Agreed, depending on what you consider a veteran. If the Tigers can get a younger MLB player who has multiple years left on his contract, then I am all for trading prospects for players like that.

    This is true but most prospects don’t pan out.

    Tigers seem to have a surplus of young starters. I am slightly surprised we haven’t seen a couple packages together to either acquire a positional player or better prospect. Some of these guys will have to transition to the bullpen just due to lack of space or play at a lower level than desired.

    Allowing challenges to penalties, is a bad idea. It will slow the game down and a lot of the penalties are grey areas. It will lead to more debate and murkier calls.

    The debate over Kap is silly. He isn't coming here. Stafford is the QB, if the backup is playing the Lions are losing. Kap was also terrible his last season.

    Media can report a lot of stuff doesn't make it right. I think they should cut Wagner, but I don't believe they will. You don't need the #8 pick to replace Lang. You can find a starter in the third or so or find an affordable free agent.

    It is on twitter. Of past Farve comments. He got into a debate on the sidelines with the coaching staff because he changed running plays to passing ones so much. I am not sold on Bevell at all. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/313769-brett-favre-should-be-calling-as-many-audibles-as-he-can?comment_id=1702106

    People in the organization are higher on Wagner than fans are, I don't think he will be cut. Lang is likely gone and should retire. Crosby will probably take the starting position. So I do not understand your logic.
