  1. #17 Michigan vs Indiana - 10/14/17

    Yeah, the ground game has been good for the most part the past two weeks. JBB is obviously un upgrade over Ulizio in that regard. But OKorn and the passing game is just completely inept. If he can't make the right read with a wide open Gentry in a two man route, there is no hope. 20 passes for 58 yards is historically bad. I imagine we will see Peters get some run after the PSU loss, it literally can't be worse than 3 ypa. Shame to waste this defense and a senior Hurst, but it is what it is.
  2. Justin Verlander Traded to Astros

    It is, but it was so awesome to see him dominate the other night. I've enjoyed following the Astros blogs and forums to see how much they love JV too. He deserves a ring.
  3. Project the 2018 Tigers

    I think the NBA incentivizes tanking the most, even with the lottery. The middle of the road teams have no chance of being competitive without blowing everything up and tanking. You need to have a superstar player, and you can't trade for or attract one through free agency without having a top pick. As for the Tigers, they did such a tremendous job tanking after the deadline, it will allow them one less full on tank season. They should go for a full on tank and another top 3 pick this season. Then start getting the younger guys up to be moderately competitive but still end up with another top 10 pick in 2019. After that you start going for it. Don't trade any prospects or go sign FAs that cost you draft picks, but by 2020 you should try to set the roster up to be around a legit .500 team, who with a little luck could pull a playoff spot. If things go right 2021 is when you start trying to be legitimate WS contenders.
  4. Glad we learned the real reason Kyle was hurt this summer.
  5. 2018 Draft Pick Watch

    Thats what stood out to me, hes got a low arm slot. Might just be because it's so rare to have that low of a release for a SP though.

    Plus we've already got Fulmer as a solid SP to build the rotation around. We really don't have anybody to build our future lineup around, and that's 9 spots vs. 4 for the rotation. Castellanos and Candelario both could be quality depth players, but they're not the 2-3 differences makers that a lineup needs to separate itself. They can be the solid depth players that make our lineup deep that we lacked during the stars vs. scrubs era, but we need to find all star, MVP type position players if we want to compete again.
  7. 2018 Draft Pick Watch

    If he has a strong spring and looks like the clear number one, that would be a fine pick. Being a college stud he'd obviously be in a position to move fast through the minors as well. They should just then spend their next 5 picks on position players. I hope to see like 7 or 8 of their picks in the next couple first 5 rounds of the draft spent on position players. We really need an influx in both quality and quantity of position prospects.
  8. New season of Curb started tonight.
  9. 2018 Draft Pick Watch

    Agreed, plus we've got a solid group of pitching prospects already anyways. System is still weak on position players.
  10. 2018 Draft Pick Watch

    With two games left we have the first pick. Another loss ensures we pick no lower than second.
  11. 2018 Draft Pick Watch

    Giants 6 outs from another win. We've got this number one pick on lock.
  12. He's saying you buy him out and then offer him a new deal, something $5M or under most likely.
  13. 2018 Draft Pick Watch

    White Sox 3 outs from another win, and the Giants have an early 3 run lead against the DBacks, who are resting a lot of their players. Could move into the 2nd position after tonight.
  14. #8 Michigan vs. Purdue - 9/23/17

    I can't believe that Don Brown never got a DC job at a major program until last year. The guy is as good as it gets. Fielding a top 5 defense after losing 9/10 starters is just absurd.
  15. #8 Michigan vs. Purdue - 9/23/17

    I see no way in which OKorn isn't the starter until he loses the job.
