  1. Also with the addition of the draft pick, the most important get is the extra money the Tigers will get for the draft and international signings.
  2. Shout out to @edman85 for projecting this.
  3. CJ Cron can mash in smaller parks. I wonder if he can mash in Detroit? Edit: I was thinking about his brother Kevin. CJ can mash, too.
  4. Rick Spielman, who was just a scout. The best GM's have jobs right now, the best remaining talent are outliers imo. Chris Spielman is the perfect person for this job right now.
  5. I've seen the movie twice already, and plan to watch more. Loved every minute of the movie, it was classic Scorsese. Watched it at Birmingham 8 Theatre, which was a perfect venue imo. I also believe this is probably what happened in the end for Hoffa. By the way, I enjoyed Pacino's performance very much. A little over the top, but that's what Hoffa was.
  6. I disagree. Spielman is as tuned in as any other candidate. John Lynch didn't have any experience when he went to SF.
  7. Actually Bienemy is calling the plays this year.
  8. I would hire the GM first, and my pick for that would be Chris Spielman. Let him make his own hires.
  9. The kid is only 17. Not hitting the brakes at all.

  11. https://blogs.fangraphs.com/top-27-prospects-kansas-city-royals/ 1. Seuly Matias, RF Video Signed: July 2nd Period, 2015 from Dominican Republic (KCR) Age 20.6 Height 6′ 3″ Weight 200 Bat / Thr R / R FV 45+ Tool Grades (Present/Future) Hit Raw Power Game Power Run Fielding Throw 30/40 70/70 40/60 50/40 40/45 70/70 With few exceptions (Joey Gallo is one) even the most whiff-prone big leaguers struck out less than Matias (34% career K%) when they were in the minors. But Matias’ physicality and bat speed are so supreme, the gap between his talent and that of most players so obvious, that there’s a chance he can be one of those exceptions, even if it’s in a streaky, inconsistent manner like Domingo Santana or Carlos Gomez. As a teen, Seuly was already posting exit velocities on par with burly, Quad-A type hitters. We hope he learns to take a walk, but “Randal Grichuk with more raw power” is a good player, so we’re cautiously optimistic that the Royals at least have a contributing big leaguer here, and a potential superstar if there’s contact/approach refinement, which is admittedly easier said than done.
