    Avila Approval Right Now?

    I don't have the energy or the time or the interest to evaluate all of Avila's moves here. He did a good job with the restructuring as far as I can tell in 2018. Good value moves, no mistakes. The trade with the Cubs was awesome. The other salary dump moves were not inspiring. The farm system has taken an objective leap according to the ratings, but we'll see if that pans out with a better MLB team or not; and I certainly don't see the makings of a winning team from the moves, roster and system in place today. I'm 50/50. He's done a decent-to-good-if-unspectacular job with the restructuring this far. The team and organization are still not where they need to be. He feels like Bob Quinn's Ghost of Christmas Future to me at this point.

    He was a hero, a leader, and a great man.

    Game 11 Chicago Bears @ Detroit Lions: Happy Thanksgiving

    Pretty much. In my opinion, Quinn has already been a bust. Martha will give him several years leash.

    This is a perfect mash-up. KL2 even mentioned a boat. Very nice.

    Tiger337 x 3 = Tiger I LOL ? or Tiger 11 (binary to decimal)? Would they both = the Ghost of Sparky?

    In terms of potential talent, in a vacuum, beyond 3 years, they are equal. I dont think that by itself is a negative. In terms of FO commitment and capacity, I dont see it though. And that is a huge factor long term, and negative IMO. That could clearly change if CI adopts a different philosophy and/or hires a better GM. Im really bearish because Avila doesnt inspire my confidence to move this org/roster where it needs to go. I do like some of his value moves in the last year or so....but he doesnt seem to have the whole package as a GM.

    In a way Bill James is saying something that I have said for some time at least as regards the a 3 year window. You basically can't accurately project anything about any team or anybody beyond maybe 3 years with any reliability. That's one reason why I lack confidence in the Tigers, because it's clear they have nothing that you can reasonably project as playoff worthy in the next 3 years....so really what they are right now is a long term crapshoot as an organization.
