  1. I recall reading an article somewhere that stated Tommy Hunter and Alex Avila were college roommates or buddies...and that Al could look to sign him based on past relationships, even after Alex left. I thought it was an interesting tidbit. Tommy could also possibly fit the mold of the swing starter they've been rumored to be looking for.
  2. Tommy Hunter Or Tyler Clippard I myself am not comfy with The 7th and 8th inning set ups. We need another rally stomper.
  3. Mat Latos, Corey Luebke and AJ Griffin are intriguing SP options as reclamation Brad Penny types. Kelley, Hunter, Lowe, Oh, Parnell and Bastardo all scream bullpen mojo.
  4. Im not as hopeful for Krol or Ray's immediate contributions, but im definitely intrigued by Whelan and Miller possibly helping out this bull****pen. Both have been consistently lights out for Toledo all season.
  5. The last I checked, Adames had 13 doubles, and 12 triples before the all star break. For an 18 year old infield prospect to put up those kinds of numbers in his first year at West Michigan is pretty damn exciting. Cant really say much more about him, but im definitely on the band wagon. another guy who is exciting, that I havnt heard as much about is West Michigan OF Wynton Bernard, imo.
  6. With the 51rst pick in this years AAT draft, Macedonian Bengal proudly selects... The Detroit Tigers second round draft choice in 2013, (58th overall) out of Vanderbilt University; Lhp Kevin Mathew Ziomek DOB:3/21/92 6'3" 200lbs. Ziomek is the next in a long line of Vanderbilt star pitchers, following in the footsteps of David Price, Mike Minor and Sonny Gray. He is projected to be a 4th Starter on a playoff caliber team..very much like my AAT from a few years ago, Drew Smyly. In fact i think he has a great chance to be as successful as Smyly, in my oppinion. Kevin throws a fastball, slider and a change-up. He needs to work on his velocity this season and try to bring his fastball up a few more miles..he has great control but tends to get into trouble when he throws too many fastballs or when repeating his motions. Kevin projects to make his debut and contribute in either the rotation or the bullpen come 2015, depending on how his season goes this year. and there it is, bring on the baseball!
  7. What a bummer. So are the Tigers actually just cutting payroll and rebuilding while trying to remain contending? I'm excited about the Ausmus regime but it seems more like a cover for a team that's expected to win it all, but an excuse for why they won't. I'm just not as excited or inspired by this roster as is. It seems like there's still a lot of work to be done, but all were getting is the "Were pretty much set" treatment. Somethings gotta give?
  8. I agree with all this man..its about damn time we started implementing these ideas in Tigers baseball.. For anyone whos been disappointed with this offseason.. you'll eat your crow come next summer...we've needed this pitching, speed and defense direction for years..and I'm glad its finally becoming a reality.. Love Jim Leyland to death..but this new approach is and has been a long time coming..imho.
  9. I'm glad he's back! One of the better defenders on the team, imo. Theres Love in that Glove.
  10. Looks like J P. Arencibia might be available. Dude has some mean power..strikrs out a lot..but might make a better compliment to Avila than Holaday?
