  1. Ron Gardenhire is your new Tiger manager

    Won't have to worry about that. Miggy won't be on the Tigers when the season starts.
  2. Ron Gardenhire is your new Tiger manager

    Some people where posting in the If Not Ausmus, then who thread. I figured Gardy needed his own thread now.
  3. Ron Gardenhire is your new Tiger manager

    It's Gardy Time. Al wanted experience, right? Not exciting.........but that's probably want they needed. Your thoughts?
  4. If not Ausmus then who?

    Always used to get his baseball card and Rafael Landestoy.
  5. If not Ausmus then who?

    Experience was the most important thing to Al Al - can't argue with this Whomever the next Tiger manager is they are basically a folded up newspaper that you put under a table leg to keep it from wobbling.
  6. If not Ausmus then who?

  7. If not Ausmus then who?

    I told you.............I knew they wanted to hire someone before this coming weekend.
  8. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    He doesn't know the difference and that's the problem. He has sacrificed nothing...........ever.
  9. If not Ausmus then who?

    BREAKING NEWS - Tigers are hiring Lou Brown.
  10. Expansion Could Trigger Re-Alignment, Longer Postseason

    Nothing is bigger than Rutgers...............
  11. Expansion Could Trigger Re-Alignment, Longer Postseason

    You need to trust me on this. I took my Out Of The Park Tigers from the basement in 2018 to back to back World Series titles in 2021 and 2022. I know what I am doing !
  12. Expansion Could Trigger Re-Alignment, Longer Postseason

    Maryland and Rutgers are in the Big 10 - the world as you know it is gone. Get used to it. Money over Tradition. Money over Sentiment.
  13. Expansion Could Trigger Re-Alignment, Longer Postseason

    Okay. My proposal - now this relies on something that will never ever happen - New Jersey getting a team. Not that it could not be supported, it could - there used to be 3 teams in NYC alone and they were all successful but there is no way the Yankees, Mets or Phillies would stand for it - they'd freak out and demand too much buyoff money to allow it - but just play along with me here. No to Portland. I just don't believe they'd support it. Now, I understand that baseball appeals to nerds and brainy people, but I just don't see it. So then where? First thing I am doing is moving the Tampa Bay Rays out of Florida and relocating them to Montreal. Expos had a good fan base that loved baseball and got screwed with a horrible stadium and even horribler owner. And yes I know horribler is not a word but it is when you are talking about Jeffrey Loria. To me he's the worst owner in all of sports and if he hadn't shanghaied Miami into paying for that ugly-*** stadium, I'd say move them out too. Montreal deserves another shot and not with an expansion team. Where to expand from there? Charlotte and New Jersey Four divisions, 8 teams. No more pitchers hitting (teams are paying the best pitchers 25 million a year to pitch, not to get hit by pitches or hurt themselves running the bases. East Division Boston Red Sox Montreal Expos NJ Trust Fund Babies NY Mets NY Yankees Philadelphia Phillies Pittsburgh Pirates Toronto Blue Jays South Division Atlanta Braves Baltimore Orioles Charlotte Christian Soldiers Cincinnati Reds Houston Astros Miami Marlins Texas Rangers Washington Nationals Central Division Chicago Cubs Chicago White Sox Cleveland Natives Detroit Tigers Kansas City Royals Milwaukee Brewers Minnesota Twins St. Louis Cardinals West Division Arizona Diamondbacks Colorado Rockies Los Angeles Angels Los Angeles Dodgers Oakland A's St. Diego Padres St. Francisco Giants Seattle Mariners 160 game schedule 6 games vs. each team in another division (3 home/3 away) and that division rotates year to year like the NFL does with their non-conference games. That is 48 games. That leaves 112 games - that divides evenly by 7 into 16 games vs. each of your division rivals. This means every team in the division will have the same schedule every year. The playoffs. For each division the team that wins that division gets a first round bye. The 2nd and 3rd place teams have to play a Best of 3 - and it has to be in no more than 4 days. That winner takes on the division champion in a five game series (Only question is - is a layoff good or bad for a team - I say 5 days is not so bad, anything longer would be a slight problem). It gives the division winner a great advantage because they get to set their rotation and/or heal up from any injuries Once each division has their champion, the Semi Finals are seeded by record. So the remaining team with the best regular season record takes on whomever left has the fourth best. -OR- once a team wins that division playoff crown they take on the other division champion from the division they played all season. I would love to see scheduled doubleheaders again, but the players union would shoot that down. Maybe a compromise can be made by expanding the rosters to 26 instead of 25 for the whole season, but I doubt the owners want to fork over any extra money. Under my system this year - assuming each expansion team wins 65 games East (3) (3) Tampa Bay vs. (2) New York to take on (1) Boston South (3) Texas vs. (2) Washington to take on (1) Houston Central (3) Miilwaukee vs. (2) Cubs to take on (1) Cleveland West (3) Colorado vs. (2) Arizona to take on (1) Los Angeles I know there are some teams with losing record that would get in from this season but I think that would be unlikely when everyone has the same strength schedule. Milwaukee, Tampa and Texas make it, Minnesota gets screwed. Who cares, I hate the Twins.
  14. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    Much like the Taliban or bin Laden - I don't believe their leaders are religious at all - they just use it as a recruitment tool. My dog is more religious than Donald Trumpanzee.
  15. If not Ausmus then who?

    I am guessing we'll know the next Tiger manager by Thursday this week.
