    I think it's Rodon, almost like in Godzilla. I guess that's appropriate to go along with the tour of Japan

    The way I understand it is if you put a guy out a second time, you can't pull him back. It's basically cutting him loose for anybody to have.

    If he didn't clear waivers, then that means some team put in a claim. If some team put in a claim, the option would then be to let him go or work out a trade. Obviously that hasn't happened. If the Tigers put him on waivers again, they wouldn't have the ability to pull him back. If what Oblong saw is correct, then Greene isn't going anywhere until the offseason at the earliest.

    "strained" groins will be the least of concerns

    Is it time to let Victor Ride Off into the Sunset??

    I may be late to all this, but I was struck by how heavy Victor looked last night. It doesn't have anything to do with his ability to steal bases, but I thought he looked at least 10 lbs. overweight.

    2018 Trade Deadline Thread: (Perfect Fits & Crazy Rumors):

    I am reading the FG post to mean "gives us hope" rather than "gives up hope." Quite different, obviously. Am I taking this the wrong way?

    6/22 @7:10 Detroit Tigers vs Cleveland Indians

    I was kidding about the ****hole part. I was in Cleveland for a concert last year and was favorably impressed with it. But the stadium is in a different part of town. Any suggestions for good bars or food would be appreciated.

    I have tickets for this one and am driving down to that ****hole Cleveland. Anybody have any tips or suggestions for stuff near the stadium?

    Justin Verlander Traded to Astros

    Like old times for JV

    If we had a decent bullpen

    This was my first thought, too.

    Justin Verlander Traded to Astros

    Buster Olney had an interesting spiel about this on his podcast Thursday. Apparently Bauer (who made this suggestion) was college teammates and none too friendly with new Astros P Gerrit Cole, and a "different kind of guy" in any event. There was some speculation whether that dynamic contributed to the comments. I would also add that Bauer is a terrible rapper.

    4/15 @1:10 New York Yankees vs Detroit Tigers

    For sure. If I'm an owner, a player, and as a fan, I'd take 2 games in June over 2 outs in this crap every time

    4/15 @1:10 New York Yankees vs Detroit Tigers

    I don't know what the weather is in the D, but it is raining pretty hard in Rochester. I would guess that these games are going to be called off real soon.

    Your 2018 MLB Predictions

    Predictions: (a) Tigers win 62 even; (b) Washington finally breaks through and wins the World Series; (c) Kluber wins the AL CY after beating the crap out of the Tigers, White Sox, and Royals all season long; (d) Ohtani is okay, not great, so that'll seem like a bust; (e) Trout takes the AL MVP; (f) Rizzo is NL MVP; and unsurprisingly, (g) Kerhaw is NL CY.

    The Official 2017-2018 Detroit Tigers Off-season Thread

    Skeeter also went on to manage the Lakeland Tigers circa 2000-01

    3/23 @1:05 Detroit Tigers vs Atlanta Braves

    Correct, then after the 1981 season the Tigers traded him to the White Sox for Chet Lemon. Kemp became a FA a year later and signed with the Yankees

    3/21 @6:05 Detroit Tigers vs Atlanta Braves

    I caught some of the game on (say it with me) Tee-Vee. The Braves feed wasn't very good there, either. They were interviewing Alex Anthopolous and the color commentator couldn't stop saying how old school he was and how happy he was that despite being a new-fangled moneyballer, Anthopolous hadn't taken every scout in the Braves organization and thrown them in the Chattahoochee River

    3/11 @1:05 p.m. Atlanta Braves vs Detroit Tigers

    So they signed Liriano so they can *finally* get Aoki?

    2018 Draft Pick Watch

    Wrist injuries are notorious for sapping a hitter's power. Even if he's back in April, I wonder if the power takes longer to return.

    3/2 @1:05 Miami Cheapskates vs Detroit Tigers

    That's a great scene of Paris. And it was the Braves that cut Lombard loose. I remember having hopes that a change of scenery would result in his breakout. I remember reading-hearing that one of his grandparents had been a dean at Harvard biz school.
