    2018 Draft Pick Watch

    Tigers had $12,414,800 to spend on top 10 picks. Picks in rounds 4 to 10 have signed, and I'll assume Clemens signs for slot. If they give Parker Meadows $2m, they can give Mize $7,291,620, which would just barely be the biggest bonus ever under the current system. 1 Mize $7,291,620 2 Meadows $2,000,000 3 Clemens $750,080 4 Liniak $900,000 5 Wolf $398,300 6 Smith $300,000 7 De La Rosa $231,900 8 Burks $182,900 9 Skubal $350,000 10 DeathRage $10,000
  2. Breaking it down by years of control: FREE AGENTS. Liriano: needs to get off DL so he can be traded for whatever you can get. Iglesias: trade him if you can get something decent, but not certain that he won’t be back in 2019. Victor: zero value, if not negative value 1.5 YEARS OF CONTROL. Nick: nice to trade him before his defense collapses but unlikely; supply will limit chance, quality of trade. Martin: nice to trade him before his offense collapses but unlikely; demand will limit chance, quality of trade. Fiers: having a solid year; cannot expect much in return. Wilson and Coleman: probably worth more to Tigers than what you get back in trade 2.5 YEARS. Greene: best shot a big trade; Houston, St. Louis, Philly? McCann: no one is trading much for him, trade him if you can get something decent, little difference with Hicks/Greiner/Rogers in the near future. Zimmermann: nope! 3.5 YEARS. Hardy: a few good starts won’t get much in return 4.5 YEARS. Fulmer: sell-high point probably is not this summer. Boyd: sell-high point probably is this summer; but hard to see any fit with Seattle. Hicks: worth much more at C than 1B 5.5 YEARS. Jimenez: would bring a YUGE return

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    Current Wikipedia page (not sure how long this will stay up) In June of 2018, McHale was spotted at a President Trump rally in Duluth, just days after the Trump Administration was facing bipartisan criticism for it's heartless and evil border policies involving indefinitely separating young children from their parents and detaining them in separate internment camps. Of course, because McHale is a white male and a senior citizen, exactly zero people were surprised to hear he was a supporter of President Trump.

    Trump now following "Obama Law" of catch & release (until bigger for-profit family prisons are built?)

    Perhaps Americans who lived from JFK's assassination through Watergate feared for the country's future just as much as some of us do now.

    and as others have said, Trump is not the real problem. The problem is that a game show host - who is a failed business man, a failed father, a failed husband, a failed American, a failed human being - demanded everyone know he was also a racist, sexist pig, who had a profound, deliberate and gleeful ignorance of current events, of US history, of US values, of the Constitution, and of the job for which he was running. and 60M+ Americans said "I wanna get me some of that."

    DeathRage was given the day off for Game #3. Just too tired from hitting home runs. Without him, T-West squeaked out a 11-1 win.

    GCL Tigers West beat Blue Jays 12-11. GCL Tigers East beat down the Yankees 24-8.
  12. fangraphs not impressed with the return for KH The prospect package seems to be light, but rentals generally don’t fetch a blockbuster. What surprises me more than anything is that this happened on June 18. It doesn’t surprise me that the Nationals would want Herrera for five or six extra weeks. It surprises me that, on so early a date, the Royals would settle. https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/royals-hastily-trade-kelvin-herrera-to-nationals/
