  1. Taking a family trip to Disney 1st week in March, I've negotiated Wednesday the 7th to go to Spring Training. Tigers are playing Atlanta at 1 pm. For the ST experts, what is the general schedule on a game day. Work on back fields before game? After? Best time and place to get an autograph or two?

    Lockout news

    Lockout: Sources reveal details of proposed NFL CBA - ESPN The interesting part: Any player who has 4, 5, or 6 years service and who does not have a contract for next year will be a UFA. Who does this apply to that are current Lions? and whom does that allow to become a FA that plays a position of need CB, LB etc that may be of interest to the Lions?
  3. Kaline, Avila (Al's nephew), Salter (Freehan's grandson), Chadd (nephew), Allen, Impemba. I heard the singing hot dog guy's kid was next, but they ran out of rounds.
  4. There are a ton of closers who will be free agents next year. The question is, can we can one that is better/younger than Valverde at $9M or less, will the number of closers available drive down the cost? Closers Heath Bell (34) Jonathan Broxton (28) Matt Capps (28) Francisco Cordero (37) - $12MM club option with a $1MM buyout Frank Francisco (32) Ryan Franklin (39) Brad Lidge (35) - $12.5MM club option with a $1.5MM buyout Joe Nathan (37) - $12.5MM club option with a $2MM buyout Jonathan Papelbon (31) Jon Rauch (33) - $3.75MM club option with a $250K buyout Francisco Rodriguez (30) - $17.5MM club/vesting option with a $3.5MM buyout Rafael Soriano (32) - $11MM player option or a $1.5MM buyout Jose Valverde (34) - $9MM club option, no buyout

  6. I'm shocked! I didn't think anyone in front of us would be willing to pay the signing bonus. Hope he goes to college.
  7. Are you sure? Justin Moreanu should have gotten one of them also.

    Inge to DL

    We can only hope.
  9. Agreed with completely. Although, if they won the WS I suppose it would be difficult to get rid of him.

    Miggy gets DUI

    1 month of inpatient rehab. 1 week of spring training, and receive counseling during the season. He won't miss opening day, and the Tiger's make him get treatment/doing what they can do to help which makes the organization look good. The statement about "I'm going to kill him" in his arrest report is interesting. Somewhere there is a lot more to the story.
  13. While I think looking at stats are good at predicting a number of things, I think they fail to take a number of things into consideration. Boesch as we know tends to be an aggressive hitter and will expand the zone on occasion. In the minor leagues, I assume that most pitchers do not have the control of mlb pitchers and hence throw more off the plate, with umpires expanding borderline pitches as strikes to move the games along, etc. Could Boesch be having more success because the MLB pitchers throw strikes more often? I personally think he has a fantastic swing, and see him as .290-.310 hitter depending on if he can lay off the inside curveball, and him hitting 25-35 HRs. A young star in the making. But, then again I tend to be an optimist.
