  1. Tigers just chose another outfielder (Granderson) in the 3d round. Definite theme here... He was the first college player. With their second 3d round pick, the Tigers selected Matt Pender, college right-handed pitcher (for those of you who like pitching;) )
  2. Tigers just selected Bryce Cleveland, a HS OF. Sorry about the earlier post, the Tigers will receive the Met's 3d round, 87th overall, for Cedeno. Either way, good trade.
  3. The Tigers get the Mets' 4th round pick as compensation for Cedeno. Prince was selected #7 by Milwaukee. Getting ready for the supplemental/2d round right now.
  4. Sorry if you don't like it red. I love it. Tigers just selected Scott Moore, whom I expected them to. I would expect the Tigers to move him to the outfield, or keep him at SS. The best thing about the baseball draft is that they draft--1st round took less than 10 minutes. I follow BA religiously, and love following all the prospects as they develop from the minors to the majors.
  5. Herman's a sure bet Hall of Famer. Just compare his numbers to the all-time greatest receivers, and the fact he owns several NFL records to boot (most catches in a year). Also included will be the fact he never played with a very good QB.
  6. I said he's got the "same kind of talent"; I didn't say he was better than Terrell. But I'm sure his teammates (and his coaches) would rather have Germane. Germane will look much better with Harrington, guaranteed.
  7. Germane Crowell has been the best receiver for the Lions since he was drafted. He's much more of a threat than Moore/Morton, and if he's healthy, will be a top 10 receiver in the NFL. He has the same kind of talent as Terrell Owens, and thats saying alot.
  8. I'm in, sorry it took so long.
  9. We're not talking about defense here. The Tigers have no offense. They have no pop at the major league level, and none in the minor league level. Usually I agree that you shouldn't draft for need, the Tigers have gotten into alot of trouble with that in the past. Humberto Sanchez would've been a late 1st round/sandwich pick in this year's draft, yet the Tigers got him last year in the 31st round in a draft and follow. They had a great draft last year, yet most of those players aren't even playing (Baugh, Larrison, Raburn, etc...). The Tigers need to figure a way to get some offense, and they need a dominant #1, slam-dunk, strikeout pitcher (which Randy always stayed away from--too expensive).
  10. Well, I guess it doesn't matter anymore, BA says the Tigers are no longer looking at Prince (Cleveland, of course, is); right now they're looking at Cole Hamels (left-handed HS pitcher coming off a broken arm), Zack Greinke (who throws gas), or Scott Moore (the Tiger's #2 choice behind Jeremy Hermida).
  11. There aren't many HS'ers who come out with the type of power potential Prince possesses. Two; Griffey and A-Rod, come to mind. When they get in the system, and are full time major leaguers by the time they turn 21, then they have more opportunities than other players. If he keeps himself in shape (and that's a big if), then the sky's the limit with Prince.
  12. BA's latest mock draft has the Tigers taking Fielder. Cecil has done alot to improve his conditioning, he's down to 240 lbs. Prince is highly thought of, and is ranked as one of the best power bats in the draft. He could go as high as #7 to Milwaukee. If the Tigers don't take him, they would probably take Scott Moore, and move him to the outfield. This isn't the best draft for pitching, and college hitters is especially weak. This is a below average year, but BA says this draft has some depth to it. There will be players available in the top 10 rounds. At this point, I'd take Prince. There aren't too many 17 year-old kids who you could project to hit 500+ HR's, and he may be that kind of player.
  13. I'd rather have a basher and teach him how to get the most of his power, than someone who can't hit who gets walks. Usually guys who bash eventually realize they get the most out of their ability when they are in command of the zone, which is the most important part. Also, besides Munson, he's the only basher in the system.
  14. I'm pretty sure that Mornhinweg plans to do with Harrington what he did with McMahon, but at an accelerated rate. Harrington is the Lions QB of the future, there's no chance of McMahon being that. If Harrington outplays McMahon by a large margin (and I think he will), then Harrington will be the starter from day 1.
  15. He hit another one Thursday night. Where did this all come from? Cornejo took the 3-1 loss, but he gave up 11 hits in 8 innings.
  16. I was thinking the same thing myself. Maybe Randy Smith didn't want to have any part of that, is that why he got rid of Kapler? I hope Inge isn't on the juice. The other guy who comes to mind with receding hairline, ornery attitude, and somewhat increased musculature would be Shane Halter (oops, sorry--H-Rod).
  17. ...Isaac Bruce can fly, so can Torry Holt, Marshall Faulk, and Trung Candidate. They don't really use the TE much in their schemes, except in short yardage. If anything, Warner makes that team faster with his accurate, in-stride throws. They are precise--precisely fast!
  18. The Lions aren't in ideal shape, but they aren't in the worst shape in the NFL, either. Andre Goodman, their 3d round pick from South Carolina, is an ideal nickle corner. Reports from mini-camp are that Chris Cash is O.K., but keep an eye on undrafted FA Perry Carter. At 6-1, 192, he has ideal size, and turned some heads to his direction. Don't forget about Jimmy Wyrick and Chidi Iwuoma, and I get the feeling if Fair isn't ready, then Plan B would be to start Todd Lyght and Lamar Campbell, so at least the Lions would have some size and experience there. With the new additions at safety, the secondary will improve tenfold from last year, where most of the Lions defensive problems started last year. Right now, I'm more concerned about the Lions lack of depth at linebacker.
  19. I think a lot of Matt's injury problems this year can be attributed to his busy winter (classes), when he didn't throw at all. Pitchers need to throw to keep the arm strength.
  20. Snelling is a corner OF with a high average/OBP, and is real quick. He's real good, but not what the Tigers need IMO. He's a luxury item the Tigers couldn't afford because they wouldn't have anyone to drive him in at the moment. The Tigers need a real big stick right now.
  21. I like Snelling, but he's too small for my tastes.
  22. I listened to last year's draft on mlb radio, and heard the Tigers picks until Hannahan.
  24. Quickie's on a roll!! :D :D :D
