    Finley, kind of as a response to Miller pushing for FA back in the 70s

    Fist City: population...Rod and Mario

    I recall learning that once, and that he was sort of a celebrity in addition to being a baseball player (and golfer). I think I can see the loafers now that people have pointed them out.

    Is Hawk depicted in his sock-feet here or am I just not recognizing the style of the times?

    Sounds like the Braves are willing to move Dansby Swanson. Everyone's thoughts on Swanson for Castellanos? Not enough? Swanson was a 2.3 brWAR player in 2018; defense was important to that. Nick was 2.9. Defense, not so much.

    My recollection is that part of the problem with Renteria's defense was that his was fatter than me that season

    Let the Dan Gilbert/Tigers speculation begin

    I'm late to this discussion, but keep in mind also that interest rates are increasing and Gilbert's core business, despite all his other interests, is the mortgage business. Increasing interest rates may be slowing Quicken's mortgage biz such that, as somebody said, he may have needed to have more liquid assets and this was a way to do it.

    Just to clarify, those guys are all eligible for the Rule 5 draft, i.e., other teams can draft them?

    I was thinking of him pairing with Greiner as the catcher combo

    I would definitely be interested in seeing them sign any or all of those guys. I think McCann will be able to land a deal with a good team and is out of reach. That is probably also true for Ervin Santana; he has had recent enough success that makes me think that more of a contender would take a shot with him. Solarte may be a short-term solution at SS. All of those guys might have mid-season flip value. Shields is the least desirable of this group to me.

    2018 WS Dream Match-up: Dodgers vs. Red Sox

    I liked 'The Day that Never Comes' off that album, and they've had a few gems since 'Master,' like 'Unforgiven,' but mostly Oblong is right. Aerosmith hasn't made a good song since probably I was in first grade. I really don't like the 80s or 90s stuff.

    'tis controversial but I say that this is a top three song from those guys

    Was that his fastball or how fast he drove his van?

    I thought they had Lackey on the ropes in the first, but the Sawx got out of it without giving up any runs. Nothing else ever happened.

    Thanks for digging this up. Based just on my recollection/anecdotal experience, Greene's problem was keeping the ball in the yard, which may be related to keeping it on the ground.

    How about Greene? That seems pretty steep for a guy who really didn't have such a good season. The Saves stat is padding his number.

    related to all that, I wonder if there is an actual book called 'The Tigers Way' or something like that. i'd like to get my hands on a copy

    Rumor is that former A's 3B Eric Chavez is first in the queue
