  1. I saw that. It’s a good sign and he’s a position player which this system really needs top guys for. I don’t think Pedro’s a consensus top prospect just yet. Interesting that he was an international sign instead of a draftee. I would’ve thought he’d grown up in the States and played American high school ball.

    Maybe this helps explain was Joe and Mika were so accommodating to Trump. Maybe they were elevating him. If so, that sure didn't come off as planned, did it?
  3. I'd like to see that. I understand any signing is a risk, but I'd like to see the Tigers in on a consensus top 100-level international prospect, especially since they are much cheaper given the new bonus rules. They may have signed a top guy recently, although I can't recall when.
  4. I'll start: Why don't I ever seem to hear of the Tigers making signings like this? https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2018/04/rangers-sign-julio-pablo-martinez-outfield-prospect-cuba.html For an organization claiming to be laser-focused on rebuilding into a consistent contender, this seems like the exact kind of signing we'd benefit from. A consensus young international prospect who costs only a couple million to sign, is eligible only for a low-cost minor-league contract, is under control for six years once he does make it to the bigs, and is already vaulted into the MLB Top 100 prospects list upon signing (#60 in this case). This seems like the perfect kind of signing the Tigers should be in the market to make. And the Ilitches are billionaires, so it's not as though they couldn't afford the cost. I don't know, maybe the Tigers are planning on something, but they rarely do something big like this that would excite the fan base and keep fans interested during the long walk through the desert. They mostly spend their international money on volume. I'd sure like to read about a big signing like this one, though.
  5. It occurs to me we might benefit from having a catch-all thread for posts members want to make about the Tigers while the season in progress, sort of like the catch-all offseason threads we have every winter. A thread like this would be for one-off type posts that don't warrant their own thread, or aren't specific enough to belong in the game threads, which I'd bet some members don't even read.
  6. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    I’m with you on that, although it’s bright only if you go fast, before you even know it.
  7. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    The 40s was also one of the decades that had a world war.

    ... and/or compromised.
  9. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    If they’re not careful we might end up back in the 40s.

    Don’t shoot the messenger, but I’ve heard this stuff before. https://washingtonmonthly.com/2018/04/18/a-contrary-view-of-barbara-bush/

    Not if he goes to Goodfellas prison.

    You’re wrong. The word is “hanged”.

    For those who don’t want to click through and read, this last part of the article is worth quoting here: In an interview with the Journal, Goldberg elucidated his concerns about Cohen’s loyalty and the devastating impact it would have if he cooperated with the government. “The mob was broken by Sammy ‘The Bull’ Gravano caving in out of the prospect of a jail sentence,” Goldberg explained. Again, this makes a lot of sense as a legal defense strategy for a businessman who has probably done a lot of illegal stuff. But as a public-relations strategy, isn’t Trump’s lawyer supposed to say he believes Cohen is innocent, and would be shocked to learn if he did something wrong, because of course Trump has never engaged in any illegal behavior and would never tolerate it among his employees? He’s probably not supposed to casually liken the president of the United States to the boss of a criminal syndicate. Update: Politico has more reporting on Trump allies expressing concern that Cohen will flip on Trump. All of the sources implicitly assume both Cohen and Trump are guilty of serious crimes. (Because otherwise, Cohen couldn’t give prosecutors any information damaging to Trump.) And many of them also use mafia lingo. “I think for two years or four years or five years Michael Cohen would be a stand-up guy. I think he’d tell them go **** up a rope,” says a defense lawyer who represents a senior Trump aide, “But depending on dollars involved, which can be a big driver, or if they look at him and say it’s not 2 to 4 years, it’s 18 to 22, then how loyal is he?” Eighteen to twenty-two years sounds like it would involve some pretty serious crimes, huh?

    Wait, what? North and South Korea reportedly set to announce official end to war I don't see it anywhere else major as of yet, though. The South Korean newspaper CNBC are citing has had some sketchiness in their history.
