  1. Doesn't Tampa Bay do something where some of their starters only throw a few innings? The Tigers need to get innovative and do something like this next year. For example, have Mize throw 3 or 4 innings and then Faedo throw 3 or 4 innings. It appears we are going to be in a unique situation with a good amount of depth...knock on wood. Take advantage of it and do something different than the norm.
  2. What are the expectations for Miggy's OPS going forward and at what point do you cut bait with him because he is more a detriment to the team than plus? There is risk in cutting him and then watching him have a resurgence with another team but that seems less and less likely to happen. As much as I would like to see him get to 500 career home runs and 3000 hits as a Tiger, I don't want keep him around for those reasons if we are better off without him.
  3. I have admittedly done a 180 on Conley. Previously, I did not want any part of that contract but he was so good this year and does not appear to be slowing down with age. I don't think Conley and Griffin really makes the Pistons a true championship contender but given the state of the franchise, I would say go for it and tank in two years when it doesn't work out. However, I would probably prefer to give one first round pick and Kennard. We have a glut of shooting guards with Kennard, Brown, and Thomas. I would kind of like to see the Pistons commit to Thomas next year and see what happens. Brown can be the backup plan. There are not enough minutes for all three of them.
  4. I think OKC would be game for a Drummond for Steven Adams trade. Not sure this makes sense for the Pistons though. Worth a try maybe if nothing else works out. I don't really want to see anything close to the same team take the court for the Pistons next season.
  5. Maybe the Pistons should go back and review the calls from the 2005 Game 7 loss to the Spurs. Or some of those Eastern Conference Finals losses to Lebron. Or the '87 and '88 game seven losses in the Conference and NBA finals. This is just annoying and no matter how much they get screwed, the fact they have made this the main story ensures that I will be rooting against them the rest of the playoffs.
  6. I have a hard time believing a good defensive staff couldn't adapt a little bit to take advantage of Oliver's talent. At some point, talent trumps scheme.
  7. Take Oliver and take advantage of him dropping. Don't overthink this.
  8. Josh Allen will fall to us and we will pass on him.
  9. This is getting interesting.
  10. No question. A lot of guys struggle against Alabama turn into very good NFL players. But if you are spending the #1 pick on a quarterback, I would put a lot more emphasis on what he does against the best defenses he faces than the worst defenses he faces.
  11. I often wonder how true this might be for many of the players. Even with Kyler Murray, I was very unimpressed with his performance against Alabama.
  12. I agree. It's a bummer they didn't get an offensive coordinator we can get excited about. They did a great job with roster changes. I don't really like Patricia but I do have to admit he does know defense. I just worry the offense is not going to be able to take the necessary steps forward because of coaching.
  13. So barring somebody unexpected falling, it sure seems like the 3 names that get mentioned most in our range are Hockenson, Sweat, and Oliver. I think Devin Bush would be the sleeper. Anybody else would probably be a reach and a surprise. I really think it is going to be Sweat or Hockenson. Not super excited about either right now but that will probably change when I watch the ESPN broadcast crew slobber all over whoever we pick.
  14. That sounds like a good start...when are you thinking the contract matching rights start then? I would think the one thing that the union and owners should be able to agree upon is that paying players in their late 20's is better than paying them in their late 30's. Players get their big payday sooner and owners avoid albatross contracts.
  15. Baseball needs to just figure out a rule that makes sense so we don't have to have these stupid service time discussions.
