    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

    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.

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

    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

    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.

    Houston could have something to say about it. Maybe Boston, too.

    MLB At Bat apparently has some bugs to work out still. Anybody else experiencing this? Also I hate when Dan & Jim suggest that McCann can be a "big bat." Only if he shows up in a costume.

    I don't know if its great or terrible that we won't hear clips of John Sterling saying something like, 'Another bash . . . from Blash . . . that one got out of here in a flash . . .'

    Dickerson also is not a FA until 2020. I expect he'll have his choice of landing spots and will choose a team with a better chance to win. I wonder what I'm missing that led the Rays to DFA him.

    http://www.mlive.com/tigers/index.ssf/2012/01/detroit_tigers_gm_dave_dombrow.html In a wisely hedging way, DD said Prince "probably" wasn't a good fit. I remember thinking that Carlos Beltran would have been a good fit.

    I thought Aoki sucked, but I see that it goes much farther than that

    2018 Home Uniforms

    The enlarged D on the hat makes me think of that stupid 'flash forward' promo from the late 1990s or early 2000s when, instead of a throwback day, the players wore 'futuristic' uniforms. At that time, the idea was that in the future, all the logos would be enlarged. And here we are.

    2018 Home Uniforms

    The D is being enlarged, too. Unfortunately I can't change the tattoo I have, which matches the jersey version. Sigh.
