  1. Do you think he resigns? Gets impeached?

    Justin Verlander Traded to Astros

    He signed an 8 year deal covering 2008-2015 for $152 million. In March of 2014, he signed another one for 2016-2023 for $248 million, with vestings for 2024 and 2025. That 2nd one I think was all Ilitch. I don't see any team employee doing that on his own. No need to

    I don't fault DD for the Cabrera, or JV, signings at all. Those are done at the ownership level.

    You can't have some unknown closing out your 8th and 9th..... gotta be a proven guy like Joba or Nathan.

    everyone got overshadowed by Bill. He was a husky fella

    My favorite part of the Ray thing was when he got called out at the press conference for trading Fister and he pulls out his papers showing how much they liked Ray. Basically DD never met a prospect he isn't afraid of trading. It's like blackjack to him. Follow the system and don't worry when you get burned. BOston wouldn't have traded for Chris Sale before DD got there. He's going to join a select group of executives to take 2 teams to a WS title and probably make the HOF now, if he wasn't already.

    I kind of forget 2015... like what happened that we were bad? Who was hurt? Need a refresher. When I think of the 2015 season it's being in Virginia Beach and then while I'm there guys are traded... I think that's how it played out. Then DD was fired. Also we season ticket holders got our playoff ticket invoices and it said something like "In accordance with MLB policies..." Like they had to do it because they were within so many games of 1st but knew it was embarassing.

    I sort of forget Price was on the Tigers.

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    So the President that said what he did last night about the reporter.... explain to me how that's not an impeachable offense? He violated his oath of office. By supporting and condoning an official government representative physically assaulting a journalist who was acting in his capacity as a jouranlist... he's admitting to not defending the constitution. It's right there in the Oath. "Preserve, Protect, and Defend"

    POTUS Impeachment Watch

    You weigh consequences with what's exposed. He hurt our country and our security. He made the world a less safer place. He probably should be executed.

    Everybody have fun tonight....

    When he pitched for the Tigers my friend suggested he come out of the bullpen in a rickshaw. I laughed.
