  1. You just really started to feel like DD was a wizard with trades. I know there's ample evidence that he made some real clunkers, but you just got the feeling that he could always get more than you gave up. I know that's not totally true, but that's how it felt. Avila being his underling it kind of feels like we just promoted from within out of convenience, and I'm left here wondering what he's every done to get the job. I CANNOT WAIT to be proved a million times over that I'm an idiot as the Tigers march to a decade of dominance from 2020-2030.
  2. That draft video is very interesting. I guess I had forgotten that Avila was responsible for Beckett and the Gonzalez pick in the midst of other picks that didn't pan out is pretty impressive. Lightning in a bottle? Does Al actually know what he's doing? BTW, how do we not really have a great handle on whether or not our GM is good at his job?!!? That seems crazy.

    It's pretty simple. Join the board, spend enough time getting to know the way people post and don't start any crap until people have an idea of your tone and attitude on the board. Come in hot, ruffle feathers, you're gonna have a bad time. When I joined 12 years ago I had a pretty decent go of it until Sportz seemingly chose every single post of mine to disagree with and "go after". I hated it, hated him, and still think he's a man baby. I know some people here still like him, or at least follow his twitter. That's cool. For all I know he's still here under a different name. In the end though he was a total dongface who got banned and I'm still here. Na na na na boo booo.

    thank you. I know I am well loved by all and it's mostly due to my sweet disposition and depth of knowledge. You're all welcome that I'm here.

    Duuuuuuuuuude.....you quote-responded to your own post. And I’d accuse you of trying to run up your post count, but we don’t keep track of those anymore. Of all the ways to come at a new board, you seem to be choosing all the cringe-worthy ones.

    I don’t wanna give up on Norris, he is the quintessential “trade him somewhere else and he DOMINATES for 12 years” type of dude right now. Keep him around as a starter and hope Bosio can’t make something happen.
  7. Gardenhire >>>>>>>>>>>>>>Ausmus

    To answer the topic at hand, yes Gardy is better than Ausmus. However, when DD hired Ausmus I think Dave knew he was on his way out. I think he also knew that the team was no good and he had rotted us out from the inside. Ausmus was DD’s final gift to the tigers. He knew it would be horrific, but we wouldn’t be where we are now, with superstars like Martin, and Liriano, without his sabatoge. Thank you, Dave. I know you’re reading this.
  8. MLB Forum Refugees - Introduce yourselves

    Man am I confused. Did the MLB boards shut down? also, my only burning question is how did some of you new peeps NOT know about this place? Every other tigers MB I’ve visited over the past 12 years can’t hold a candle to MTS.... no offense 😂
  9. Gardenhire >>>>>>>>>>>>>>Ausmus

    This ain’t the RCMB’s, fella. The MTS saloon runs guys like you outta town real quick.

    Only when the return sarcasm is quality. Low quality sarcasm is just a pile of turds.
  11. 4/8@2:10 Detroit Tigers vs Chicago White Sox

    This team is better than you think it is.
  12. 4/3 @1:10 Kansas City Royals vs Detroit Tigers

    Had a ticket for this one. Not gonna go down. Threat of rain and tickets behind home plate for tomorrow make this an easy decision. Also, our water heater broke and they're installing the new one right now, so I figured I should be home whilst that happens. Win win for me today! Either I get baseball at home where it's not cold, or they don't get the game in and I can go when they make it up.

    You could convince me that the reason the Tigers have sucked so hard for the past 3 years is because there’s always some yahoo starting a magic number thread in APRIL.

    LOL. Ok. Not if any recruits have been paying attention over the past 5 years.

    Winning the whole thing is hard AF. I don't care who you beat or avoid to get there.
