    From what I see, he looks like a Victor Reyes clone.

    They should have drafted Keon Wong.... But Reed looks nice. SHould stick. Also just got Hill from Boston.

    I too think the Tigers should get Tulo. If he's 1/2 the player he was 3 years ago (yea that long ago), he'd be the best player on our team. Probably even with Miggy included in that statement..... (BTW, I'm really pulling for Miggy to come back an put up a .300+/.360+/.475+ stat line this year). We'll see if that actually happens or not though.....

    2018 Michigan Football

    There was an article that said bama was like 3 or 4 deep at safety but he'd start at MI..... what is Bama doing to get all these guys..... i get that winning is huge. But they seem to have such an advantage that they can not possibly be recruiting legitly.....

    The 40 man roster thread

    So pretty much he's your typical Tigers minor league pitcher.....?

    Avila Approval Right Now?

    A lot of good points. I like the way Avila is drafting I must admit. Mize was a no brainer (glad he didn't pass up for Bart), Clemens an Meadows is great I think.... But his trades are what are killing me. Maybe if he doesn't deal with trades an only drafts... then he'd be ok imo.

    Avila Approval Right Now?

    Just curious, do you approve of Al Avila right now? Letting Alex Wilson go for nothing.... Seems ridiculous to me. If he was making 3 million, let's say we trade him at the deadline, we save 1.5 mil. So we could have bought a B level prospect for 1.5 million...... Yet teams are paying a lot (well a lot less now for international prospects since the rule change) for some guys over seas to come in an hopefully make it to the MLB. Or other pitchers with a 3.36 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP are making 10-20 million per year..... I just have a hard time buying we couldn't find someone to trade him to. Anyways, I was just curious what you guys think of Avila. I was hugely disappointed on the JD trade, this was a bad move and I cannot believe they didn't trade Castellanos at last year's deadline when teams were sniffing around on him. Let alone right now while teams are looking at him. These are things GM's should look at in my opinion. It's easy for us fans not knowing all that is going on behind the doors, but this one is hard to swallow. Not keeping Wilson just to trade him at the deadline for essentially 1.5 million is baffling.

    The argument for Nick Castellanos

    Nick is a DH. We don't need a DH. I was at the Tampa game vs the Tigers and Nick had like 3 errors in RF....... If we can get a decent position prospect, lets do it. There is literally no point in keeping him if we can get young talent for him now. Every player we sign as a FA, we are hoping we can flip at the deadline for prospects. Nick has one year left and is in essentially the same boat. However, right now, we can get something of decent value for him. Come the trade deadline, he will be worth 1/2 of what he is now. I'll take the position prospect now thank you very much.

    Thank you Henrik Zetterberg

    Just curious. What does this do to the Salary Cap for the team? Can we go sign a player for 20 million a year now that Zetterberg retired or does it not work that way?

    Who can we trade this year?

    I see all over the Wings thought they could get a 1st for him. Amazing they didn't get a 2nd or 3rd even if he is hurt.... Thats the part that befuddles me most.

    Who can we trade this year?

    I don't know much about Hockey, but it looks like this Tatar deal was pretty good. It also looks like he bombed on Green even if he was hurt..... I keep hearing Kenny Holland may be headed to Seattle if they do indeed get their expansion team. Interesting. You guys think Holland should stay or go after today?

    Alex Wilson for Jurickson Profar

    Who says no here??? Wouldn't a deal like this make sense? Super high ceiling prospect for a later inning guy? Just curious what you guys think of a deal like this would do for Tigers fans? I'd be all for it. (BTW, this is 100% made up speculative, there's no rumors or anything about this [that I know of\). Just curious on your thoughts on this....
