  1. In a few years people will be looking back on this year as a historically great year for rookie outfielders, with mega prospects Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, and Quintin Berry.
  2. 6/1/03 when i hit a mammoth home run against the mighty yankees and played a mean left field.
  3. No love for key contributor to the '06 world series run, Colby Lewis?
  4. kansas city seems to have given up on alex gordon. and dayton moore is an idiot. could be worth looking into. also, with jackson's suspect defense tonight, a certain knighted centerfielder is still available.
  5. when jeremy bonderman develops his changeup..........
  6. Why do people assume Larish can hit at the ML level? As a 25 year old 1b/dh in AAA, he wasn't that good and he was terrible with the Tigers. Just because he hits left-handed doesn't mean he's better than Thames.
  7. A certain leadoff hitter is having a monster game today. GO NEDERLAND
  8. Why is everyone so sure Santiago is a good defender? Reputation? Many fielding metrics hate him.
  9. D'Angelo Hall isn't any good. He would have fit in perfectly with the Lions.
  10. Starting catchers on World Series teams the last 3 years and their OPS+: Varitek: 103 Torrealba: 75 Molina: 53 Rodriguez: 97 Pierzynski: 90 Ausmus: 80 Inge 2008: 96
  11. I would too, I was just trying to point out a dumb trade that doesn't get any attention that the Tigers made last year.
  12. Carlos Guillen Brandon Inge Jack Hannahan
  13. Thats not the point. He's good enough to have an awesome season this year while in the majors for an awesome team. And the Tigers let him go for nothing. They should have traded him for Carl Crawford when they had the chance.
  14. I thought it was the right move at the time to let him go, but clearly I was wrong and the Tigers made a mistake. The guy is good enough to play a major role for the first place Rays, but isn't good enough for the last place Tigers. Amazing. The Tigers would be a better team with this guy. He was a terrific clubhouse prescence which went along with his gold glove defense. I can tell you one thing, if he were on the Tigers, we would NEVER see any errors at catcher. Proof - he has 0 errors this year. Also, he's a .300 hitter, not to mention all his hits are in clutch situations. He's driving in runs like they're going out of style. Don't tell me the Tigers couldn't use a .300 hitter. I'd like to see you dispute this chasfh. I used stats in my argument.
  15. wow, a guy who had a few so-so at bats for the tigers, with a minor league track record that suggests he'd be below replacement level, over possibly the greatest hitter of all time?
  16. wendell magee and i were talking earlier today and we think that we would make an effective platoon while curtis is gone.
  17. i miss the days of the great alexis gomez batting 3rd
  18. what's ironic is the tigers used to have the player that they think ramontiago is now, they just didn't recognize it. john mcdonald is a terrible excuse for a hitter, but is actually phenomenal with the glove. (and he was white, so maybe the detroit media doesn't use the grinder angle enough).
  19. would the local writers be penning stories about how Ecksteinian he is? my take: maybe. I've made a checklist for Ramon... Light hitting middle infielder: check (though Ramontiago takes the term light-hitting to the extreme) Gritty: check Runs to 1st base: check, probably Bad at defense, though perceived to be good: check Won World Series MVP because other team's centerfielder fell down on a flyball he hit: not yet Proven winner: check, Ramon's leadership, along with Alexis Gomez, was the biggest reason the Tigers won the ALCS in 2006 Under 5 feet tall: check I'm surprised the terms gritty and grinder don't get thrown around more with him, as writers probably need to find some justification as to why he's on the team.
  20. i'll provide some insight here. i don't think there is anyone here who would question that i am a true fan (remember i used to play for the tigers). that being said.... ramon santiago sucks. su-ucks. he's really bad at every aspect of baseball (yes, even defense). leyland will keep him around, and i will consider him an itiot for doing so. if he's making the team solely because he has no options left, a mistake is being made. there is not another team that would take him. i'm sure ryan raburn can easily provide the same below average defense at shortstop and his slugging % will be over .200. carlos guillen, brandon inge, and michael hollimon could as well. (also, i think a certain retired centerfielder probably could too!!!) there, if anyone questions whether i am a true fan, they will get a taste of my fist. kingsale, out.
  21. tim wakefield. rumor has it he's done something new to his fingernails that makes the knuckler flutter even more than usual.
