    2018 - Red Wings Offseason

    I've felt they've had a subtle PR push on Abdelkader over the last few seasons, and with his Michigan ties I think they were grooming him to be the next captain. I'm not particularly fond of the idea, but I hope that Larkin's season last year has given them pause to maybe give it to him instead. It would be nice if he signed a long term deal this off season and then had another strong year. I think he would be a better rep than Abdelkader and those two seem to make the most sense. I do think Zetterberg plays this upcoming season and then LTIRetires after this season. He will only have the two years at $1 million per year salary left and if his back is already bothering him this offseason it makes sense. Kronwall's deal is up too so they both can ride off together.

    2018 - Red Wings Offseason

    I'm surprised AA signed and didn't file for arbitration, I think his agent pushed him a bit last offseason with the KHL thing as he's done that with other clients too. It does help that he got some good cash (2 years, $3 million per cap hit, a bit higher than I anticipated but nothing crazy). I'm sure he isn't perfectly content, but hopefully he has a good season since he won't be missing camp and games. I know he's happy Vanek is back based on his Instagram activity on the Wings' announcement of the signing. They did click a bit previously.

    Bosio Fired

    I would say the Tigers gave Bosio an out with the original press release and not leaking details. Then he opened his mouth, what did he think was going to happen? I’m not sure how you can fault the Tigers for responding when their original release gave no details and said they wouldn’t respond further.

    Bosio Fired

    He probably has a nickname for Strumpf that he doesn't use when Strumpf is around. That's my best guess.

    Can we take this at face value?

    Bosio Fired

    Under all the circumstances, his four sources are more believable to me than Bosio. I really wonder what Bosio thought was going to happen after giving that interview...

    Bosio Fired

    The rest of the article talks about the investigation steps they did, including their general counsel well versed on labor law. Bosio declined to comment on the article. I am going to side with the Tigers here even if it makes me a whiney PC youth.

    Bosio Fired

    I'm surprised he's discussing this publicly in any detail outside of a straight denial if he does plan on suing them for wrongful termination. I have a hard time believing the Tigers would make such a surprising firing of a guy who seemed to be a good coach if this is all it is, even if businesses are hyper sensitive about their reputation regarding these things. Especially with a guy like Bosio who has a history of speaking what's on his mind it I can't imagine they wouldn't expect him to talk to the media if that was what happened and nothing more. STRICTLY GUESSING, I wouldn't be shocked if Bosio said close to what he claims but there are other situations/incidents/whatever that put this into a bad context or finally was a tipping point for the team.

    Bosio Fired

    Good pitching coach or not, I'm glad the Tigers sided with the other employee and appears to have acted swiftly and not waiting for bad press to force their hand. No need for racism in any workplace, even if it is a game.

    Political Pot-pourri

    Such a lack of respect, not only for her but also the democratic process. I guess after being set up by the machine and running unopposed for so long he didn't think it was possible to lose, but these politicians should not be this comfortable.

    It's just a Dazed and Confused quote 😁 (but also true if we're keeping it real)

    It'd be a lot cooler if you did.
