  1. all that criticism from the 'geniuses' about everyone elses ideas... and theirs?? "not sure" "not sure" priceless.
  2. right...because you have no ideas of your own, and instead, chose to simply criticize others. nice life DUDE
  3. hey, geniuses - eric cioe and sportzforlife - let's hear what you want to do at... catcher second base third base shortstop next season. let's hear what incredibly unflawed plans you have for us next season??
  4. it's gonna be pretty hard to steal an all-star from the red sox. ...and decent starting pitchers get such enormous contracts. i'd rather stick with the draft plan there.
  5. this thread was started with the intention of starting a discussion about potential free agents.
  6. Drew, 27, 0.9 WAR, 93 OPS+ Santiago, 32, 1.5 WAR, 78 OPS+ if you give the wins above average statistic much weight, drew would actually be a downgrade overall at short stop.
  7. does carl crawford have a bad arm or what?? why has he always played left-field with such incredible athleticism?
  8. that exactly describes the tigers. forget this guy man. he's in a bad mood bc his wife left him or something and he's taking it out on everyone else. i don't think we'll get crawford either...but just because we have a surplus of outfielders right now. if we trade guillen, sure.
  9. funny. i thought this post had a pretty obvious point. we have a lot of money available this off-season. we have a lot of holes. here's a list of who's going to be available to plug those holes, with that money. weird. almost seems like that kind of post is the exact opposite of what you described.
  10. you mean...a productive discussion about baseball??
  11. oh no. im going to be internet-bullied. i better watch out.
  12. suggest someone better then a-hole. i suggested buck. productive discussion? motown sports thread? together? care to try?
  13. here comes to motown sports gang, great. i put together a nice list of all the upcoming free agents at positions of interest, i look up their stats, and for my trouble, i get to deal with you clowns. f-ing great.
  14. you always have been, and always will be, a jack@@@ quit sending me private messages! i don't care.
  15. there's just no room for another OF-er right now - LF: Boesch, CF: Jackson, RF: Ordonez, DH: Guillen, and our top mlb-ready prospect, Streiby, is a corner outfielder as well. Someone would have to be traded.
  16. I'm going off of this list of free agents - 2011 MLB Free Agents: MLB Rumors - MLBTradeRumors.com ...Willis, Bonderman, Robertson, Damon, Inge, and Laird's contracts are all coming off the books this off-season, so let's get spending! Catchers: ...I think that we need to bring in a new starter here. Laird's contracts up, and he's been getting worse and worse, I can't imagine that he'll be brought back, even as a backup. It's also starting to look like Avila isn't going to be our catcher of the future. The big name here is Victor Martinez, but it's going to be hard to steal him from the Red Sox. Miguel Olivo's having a great season, but I can't imagine that the Rockies won't pick up his option. If I was Dombrowski, I'd probably target either John Buck or Jason Varitek. Neither will command a huge salary, but Buck might want a longer contract than we're interested in handing out. - Miguel Olivo, 32, 2.6 WAR, 135 OPS+ (*club option) - John Buck, 30, 1.7 WAR, 116 OPS+ - Yorvit Torrealba, 32, 1.7 WAR, 111 OPS+ - Victor Martinez, 32, 1.2 WAR, 115 OPS+ - Ramon Hernandez, 35, 1.2 WAR, 106 OPS+ (*option vests with 120 games played) - Jose Molina, 36, 0.9 WAR, 103 OPS+ (*club option) - Jason Varitek, 39, 0.8 WAR, 125 OPS+ - A.J. Pierzynski, 34, 0.7 WAR, 72 OPS+ - Henry Blanco, 39, 0.7 WAR, 106 OPS+ (*club option) - David Ross, 34, 0.6 WAR, 97 OPS+ - Ramon Castro, 35, 0.6 WAR, 126 OPS+ - Rod Barajas, 35, 0.4 WAR, 83 OPS+ - Gregg Zaun, 30, 0.4 WAR, 102 OPS+ - Josh Bard, 33, 0.2 WAR, 100 OPS+ - *Alex Avila, 23, 0.1 WAR, 68 OPS+ (not a free agent) - Jason LaRue, 37, 0.1 WAR, 67 OPS+ - Brad Ausmus, 42, 0.0 WAR, 100 OPS+ (*mutual option) - Chad Moeller, 36, -0.1 WAR, 66 OPS+ - Bengie Molina, 36, -0.4 WAR, 111 OPS+ - *Gerald Laird, 31, -0.6 WAR, 38 OPS+ - Mike Redmond, 40, -0.6 WAR, 42 OPS+ Second Basemen: (it would be nice to move guillen to dh, right!?) ...I about have a heart attack every time there's a play at second base with Guillen there, and I don't think I'm alone. Fortunately, Damon's contract is up after the season, so we can move Guillen back into the DH role where he belongs for the last season of his contract. The big name here - suprisingly - is all-star Omar Infante, but I can't imagine that the Braves won't pick up his option. If I was Dombrowski, I'd make a hard run at Orlando Hudson. He shouldn't demand a huge salary, or a very long contract. The Twins are stretched for cash, so they'll have a hard time matching. If they can, which is unlikely, I'd go after Felipe Lopez. - Orlando Hudson (33), 2.0 WAR, 101 OPS+ - David Eckstein (36), 1.5 WAR, 94 OPS+ - Omar Infante (29), 1.2 WAR, 102 OPS+ (*club option) - Juan Uribe, 31, 1.0 WAR, 99 OPS+ - *Carlos Guillen, 36, 0.8 WAR, 105 OPS+ (not a free agent) - Mark Ellis (34), 0.8 WAR, 92 OPS+ (*club option) - Nick Punto, 33, 0.8 WAR, 71 OPS+ (*club option) - Felipe Lopez (31), 0.7 WAR, 103 OPS+ - Willie Bloomquist (33), 0.2 WAR, 69 OPS+ - Julio Lugo, 35, 0.1 WAR, 68 OPS+ - Aaron Miles (34), 0.0 WAR, 105 OPS+ - Adam Kennedy (35), -0.1 WAR, 73 OPS+ (*club option) - Ronnie Belliard (36), -0.3 WAR, 84 OPS+ - Craig Counsell, 40, -0.4 WAR, 70 OPS+ - Kaz Matsui (35), -0.8 WAR, -3 OPS - Akinori Iwamura (32), -1.1 WAR, 54 OPS+ - Alex Cora (35), -1.1 WAR, 53 OPS+ (*option vests with 80 games) Third Basemen: ...The only guy that really excites you here - Adrian Beltre - is going to be hard to steal from the Red Sox. Ty Wiggington is significantly better at the plate than Inge, but overall, I don't think he's an upgrade. If I was Dombrowski, somewhat sadly, I'd probably just try and resign Inge to a reasonable contract, at a reasonably short length. - Adrian Beltre, 32, 3.1 WAR, 137 OPS+ (*player option) - *Brandon Inge (34), 1.7 WAR, 98 OPS+ - Jhonny Peralta, 29, 1.5 WAR, 96 OPS+ (*club option) - Juan Uribe, 31, 1.0 WAR, 99 OPS+ - Wilson Betemit (29), 0.9 WAR, 211 OPS+ - Jerry Hariston Jr., 35, 0.8 WAR, 88 OPS+ - Bill Hall (31), 0.5 WAR, 95 OPS+ (*club option) - Jorge Cantu (29), 0.4 WAR, 93 OPS+ - Ty Wigginton (33), 0.2 WAR, 105 OPS+ - Mike Lowell (37), 0.1 WAR, 73 OPS+ - Wes Helms (35), 0.0 WAR, 82 OPS+ - Miguel Tejada, 37, -0.1 WAR, 86 OPS+ - Melvin Mora (39), -0.3 WAR, 78 OPS+ - Craig Counsell, 40, -0.4 WAR, 70 OPS+ - Eric Chavez (33), -0.4 WAR, 66 OPS+ (*club option) - Robb Quinlan (34), -0.7 WAR, -5 OPS+ - Aramis Ramirez (33), -0.8 WAR, 75 OPS+ (*player option) - Geoff Blum (38), -0.8 WAR, 68 OPS+ (*mutual option) - Garrett Atkins, 31, -1.1 WAR, 53 OPS+ (*club option) - Pedro Feliz (36), -2.1 WAR, 46 OPS+ Short-Stops: ...The big name here - Derek Jeter - is going to be hard to steal from the Yankees. The next big name here - Jose Reyes - probably isn't going to be available, as the Mets will probably pick up his option. The next big name - Alex Gonzalez - probably isn't going to be available, as the Braves will probably pick up his option. Most of the other guys on this list that are better at the plate than Santiago - Uribe, Hariston Jr., Guzman, Tejada - aren't true shorts-stops anymore. Edgar Renteria, lol, probably isn't a realistic option. So, if I was Dombrowski, again, sadly, I would probably just go with Santiago for another season here. - Alex Gonzalez, 33, 2.9 WAR, 114 OPS+ (*club option) - Jhonny Peralta, 29, 1.5 WAR, 96 OPS+ (*club option) - *Ramon Santiago, 31, 1.5 WAR, 78 OPS+ (not a free agent) - Juan Uribe, 31, 1.0 WAR, 99 OPS+ - Derek Jeter, 37, 1.0 WAR, 96 OPS+ - Jerry Hariston Jr., 35, 0.8 WAR, 88 OPS+ - Nick Punto, 33, 0.8 WAR, 71 OPS+ (*club option) - Christian Guzman, 33, 0.7 WAR, 93 OPS+ - Jose Reyes, 28, 0.6 WAR, 96 OPS+ (*club option) - Edgar Renteria, 35, 0.5 WAR, 86 OPS+ (*club option) - *Danny Worth, 25, 0.3 WAR, 80 OPS+ (not a free agent) - Julio Lugo, 35, 0.1 WAR, 68 OPS+ - Orlando Cabrera, 36, 0.0 WAR, 67 OPS+ (*mutual option) - Miguel Tejada, 37, -0.1 WAR, 86 OPS+ - Bobby Crosby, 31, -0.2 WAR, 70 OPS+ - Omar Vizquel, 44, -0.3 WAR, 76 OPS+ - Craig Counsell, 40, -0.4 WAR, 70 OPS+ - Cesar Izturis, 31, -0.5 WAR, 55 OPS+ - Adam Everett, 34, -0.8 WAR, 25 OPS+ - Alex Cora, 35, -1.1 WAR, 53 OPS+ (*option vests with 80 games played) - Juan Castro, 39, -1.3 WAR, 27 OPS+ 2011 Detroit Tigers: C: Varitek or Buck 1B: Cabrera 2B: Hudson or Lopez 3B: Inge or Wiggington SS: Santiago or Uribe LF: Boesch CF: Jackson RF: Ordonez DH: Guillen 1-Jackson®, 2-Ordonez®, 3-Cabrera®, 4-Boesch(L), 5-Guillen(S), 6-Varitek(S), 7-Hudson®, 8-Inge®, 9-Santiago(S) BC: Avila SS: Worth UT: Kelly UT: Streiby SP: Verlander SP: Scherzer SP: Porcello SP: *Bonderman SP: Galarraga/Oliver CL: Valverde SU: Zumaya SU: Coke MR: Perry MR: Thomas LR: Bonine LR: Gonzalez/Weinhardt
