  1. McCann is right around the league average in going to second base: https://baseballsavant.mlb.com/poptime
  2. They got the Astros best catching prospect.
  3. 2018 Draft Pick Watch

    He walks too much for the Tigers.
  4. UM B-Ball 17-18

    Lunardi isn't that accurate when it comes to the actual seeding.
  5. It's right up there with the toolsy position prospect with raw power that doesn't translate to in game power and a 4% walk rate.
  6. UM B-Ball 17-18

    It's nice having an elite defense. Even with an overall average offensive game we still beat a top 10 team handily on a nuetral court.

    They will run that lineup with Jackson at the 5 for sure. However, Jackson has only played more than 30 minutes once, dude can't stay out of foul trouble. And even if they do, Wagner keeping Wagner on the perimeter will allow Simpson to attack the rim against Winston who is bad defensively. Our ability to space the floor with 5 shooters really helps negate what makes MSUs defense so great. Should be a great matchup.

    RPI does like when you consider it is an absolutely garbage stat. That the selection committee still uses it at all, let alone relies heavily on it, for determining the teams and seeding for the tournament is embarrassing. That said, you are right, MSU hasn't proven it against the best teams. I would disgaree that a Beilein team wouldn't have that level of talent though. Maybe not regularly, but he did once run out a starting 5 that had four 1st round picks and a 2nd round pick, with a first round pick as the 6th man.
  9. Agreed, the work he did with the OSU Oline when they won the championship was phenomenal. They went from being abused by VT to manhandling Alabama. I think our interior can be elite, we just need two people to step up at tackle and just be solid P5 starters. Can't afford any long term injuries though.

    I would say the Stauskus class was better, but this class is terrific. Definitely exciting to imagine combining the new defensive and rebounding abilities of the team with a vinatge Belein offense. Could very well return to the final four and win a title I'm the next few years.
  11. https://www.fangraphs.com/fantasy/miggy_vs_comerica/ This article is pretty interesting. It talks about how the stat cast data suggest Tigers should be hitting a lot more HRs to RF than they have been. One of the comments has a wind chart showing the strength and direction. Apparently the stat cast data in Comerica are believed to be inflated.
  12. Fangraphs released their top 100 list as well and Perez is the only Tiger listed at #100. Burrows, Manning, and Stewart were listed as other prospects in consideration.
  13. BP released their top 101 prospect list today. Perez came in at 53 and Burrows at 93.
  14. Suarez for Simon, Travis for Gose, and Ray for Greene are the reason the Tigers have to undergo such a drastic rebuild right now. In order for the team to remain competitive they needed young and cheap talent to be solid players while they waited for the bloated contracts of players to come off the books. We had those players, and we traded them away for one solid RP.
  15. I was worried there would be a drop off from the first season, without having the big twist to pull off. But this season really has been terrific.
