  1. I think Harris will end up as the nominee for Dems.
  2. I assumed the Tigers would hire a new President of Baseball Operations within the next year or so, similar to Illitch hiring Yzerman while initially keeping Holland on. Technically, nothin within this announcement changes that as Avila could shift to a more senior role eventually. Holland was signed to a contract extension before being replaced a year later, so there is still hope. They've hired a bunch of new data scientists the past 2 years, but the Tigers need a top Exec who really understands it and guys like Chadd/Littlefield/Moore also need to be replaced by more forward thinking people. The overarching strategy of tanking to acquire top 5 picks for several years in a row was a good one, but their international operations need a huge overhaul. Their lower level minor league teams at A ball and lower should be flush with talent at this point in the rebuild, but instead those teams are doing terrible. Erie has a nice collection of talent, but that's about it.
  3. If Dombrowski was Houston's GM, Tucker for Boyd strikes me as the the type of deal he'd do. Tucker projects to be a good bat and is a top 50 prospect, but he's still a risk and he's not likely to offer much value on defense or base paths and you get Boyd for another 3 years at a cost controlled rate.
  4. Are they supposed to let Tate walk? They'll have enough cap space to bring him back if they wanted too.
  5. He would need to identify himself and then it should be looked into if that condition was met. Although, the note seems really sketchy by bringing up the "Kavanaugh debacle" and how he has more evidence than Ford.
  6. I have a lot of family that went to MSU and I wish they had someone better representing them then the trio of Engler, Izzo and Dantonio. MSU is currently a garbage institution that has not paid for what it did. Dantonio is an awful person that the media fawns over for no reason.
  7. Patricia is going to be a really good coach. Its too bad they started so poorly against teams they should have beat like the Jets and 49ers, but oh well.
  8. Teams play different when they have huge leads. The Lions were never really in danger of losing this game.
  9. Kavanaugh has been a shameless and habitual liar throughout this entire process even aside from the sexual assault allegations. I don't get why Republicans don't dump him and just confirm someone else with the same views but less baggage. He's a terrible nominee by any reasonable standard and public approval of him is probably now worse than it was for Bork.
  10. I think the most worrisome thing the whole Presidency has been how Trump and R's swept the entire Puerto Rico disaster under the rug. Its likely their poor preparation and response time cost over a thousand lives and there has been no consequences. Its similar to how Snyder faced no real consequences for poisoning Flint or the Bush response to Katrina. Both parties have different strengths and weaknesses. Republicans are arguably better at overseeing the economy when things are going well because they are less likely to screw with it. On the other hand, I'd definitely prefer Democrats to be in charge in the case of some natural disaster or terrorist attack. There seems to be a general weakness in that regard for modern day Republicans that they need to address. A staunch ideology against government may lend itself poorly in emergencies when government is needed and there is nothing the private sector can do to help.
  11. I’m surprised no one has traded for Iglesias. At minimum, he’d be an upgrade on a team’s backup infielder.
  12. Wilbur Ross doesn't have long left. Plus, Secretary of Commerce is maybe the easiest position for Republicans to fill.
  13. Pruitt was corrupt but he was also incompetent so he couldn't do much at the EPA. Wheeler is smart and more in the mold of Mick Mulvaney. So, this is probably worse. He doesn't really need to outsource work to lobbyist like Pruitt had to do because Pruitt didn't know anything. Wheeler is the lobbyist with decades of experience.
  14. Cabrera's contract is probably going to end up being one of the worst ever. He'll still be on the books when hopefully the organization is ready to contend again. It's a shame to see his career going down this path.
