  1. I can't imagine Martha letting Bob Quinn go at this stage .. and I don't think Quinn will cut bait on Patricia this early. I also question whether constantly changing coaches while putting shlubs on the field will have any impact. That said, Brian Schottenheimer or Eric Bienemy would intrigue me. On the college level, PJ Fleck.
  2. I realize Torkelson has more power, but I like the way Austin Martin is trending. It's more likely that he adds power than it is Torkelson developing a patient eye .. We've been needing hitters in this system like Martin for years. I wouldn't pass up the chance to draft him ..
  3. Coaching Changes https://www.detroitnews.com/story/sports/mlb/tigers/2019/09/30/lloyd-mcclendon-tigers-new-bench-coach-ramon-santiago-dave-clark-swap-base-assignments/3825992002/ Lloyd moves to bench coach - Ramon & Clark swap bases - Vavra new hitting coach.
  4. I don't know that this qualifies as a peeve, but I've come to find it comical. I do a little prep for my afternoon show every morning before I come in to work. I get an email from our boss, addressed to the whole staff, that our morning meetings are getting too long. He wants them 15 minutes from now on .. just quick stuff we need for today & the other stuff will wait until our weekly staff meeting. I get to the office, the staff gathers, & he then goes on to not only say everything he already said in the email, taking 10 minutes to do so, but then takes the next 1/2 hour to talk about stuff that could have waited for this week. Then started the ACTUAL meeting .. It physically hurt trying to hold my laughing in.
  5. I wonder if it's just a good practice to ask? After haircuts, or at the bar as Casimir mentioned .. just ask "Is it appropriate for me to tip, or are you not expecting it?" Explain the reactions you've had & let them decide .. case by case. Then again I don't get haircuts anymore, so careful taking advice from me.
  6. Which is akin to people constantly asking for advice, but never following any of it. In fact, constantly doing the ONE thing that everyone in their life has told them not to do .. & then wondering why things "always" work out that for them.
  7. UPDATE: So remember I went with Charter `cuz they'd pay off my DirecTV cancellation fee? I had confirmed earlier with AT&T that there was a fee .. now, I find out there is no fee. I owe them nothing. So I'm now in the process of deciding which streaming package to pick. Disney's ESPN/Hulu/Disney package looks good. I'll also look at Sling-TV & YouTube. We'll see. Any recommendations?
  8. I've given up making predictions. I'm hopeful, with Gattis calling the plays, UM will give defenses more to think about. I'm a little worried about the RB position, though. The fact that Mason has moved to DL makes me wonder if that has to do with the depth we lost on D, or the fact that Gattis will not be using a FB as much. Maybe a little of both. Replacing 4 starters on D will not be easy, but Don Brown seems to be able to motivate the new guys & get them ready.
  9. Kennedy seem like exactly the kind of guy Belichek/Brady would take & turn into Julian Edelman. A little taller than Powell. Made a nice comeback on a horrid JJ pass.
  10. The Cubs snuck in a last-minute stunner, working out a deal with the Tigers for Nicholas Castellanos, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic (via Twitter). Paul Richan and Alex Lange are headed to Detroit in return, per Craig Mish of MLB Network (via Twitter).
  11. Glad we held out on Boyd & didn't give him away.
  12. Line-X. 3 years ago my wife & I bought a Ford Explorer. Checked, double-checked, & re-checked for rust. None. Started driving it & within 6 months there were tiny little rust spots starting to show up on the lift gate. They stayed that way for about a year. Very small. Moved up north, paid $400 for the lift gate & part of the side to be Line-X'd .. They treat it & cover it. Now it looks like I took it off the blocks in the front yard to drive it. Only the places where it was treated.
  13. I'm the same way with trains. We lived about 200 yards from a railroad track when I was growing up. Now, when I want to sleep, I put a train track sound on my tablet & ZZZZZZZZZZZZ..............
