    He throws right handed so lets have him hold the ball with his left hand. Yeah that sums up the 2003 Tigers right there.

    Gardenhire >>>>>>>>>>>>>>Ausmus

    I kinda feel bad for Ausmus. I think he could be a good manager someday, but unlike other rookie managers he didn't really get a learning curve, he was thrusted right into a team with playoff aspirations. There's no doubt he struggled handling the staff and seemed to leave the starters out there too long(especially the first couple years) but with the crap he had to work with in the bullpen I guess I can understand why he would want to squeeze as many outs out of the starters. Also the narrative is that the team grossly underperformed under him but in 2014 they only lost 3 less games than the year before with inferior talent. Then in 2015 he had to deal with the loss of Scherzer, Porcello and Verlander being complete crap for the first 3 months and he still had them above .500. It wasn't until they sold at the deadline where the team nosedived. In 2016 he had them within a game of making the wild card, and probably would have won the division if not for Cleveland being such a buzzsaw. If that Indians team was around during Leyland's run we probably wouldn't have won any division titles. Bottom line he was definitely flawed and I'm not trying to say that he did a great job, but if he never ends up getting another managerial job I think he will have gotten a raw deal.

    I think Stewart will be up shortly but unfortunately I don't see them cutting Victor anytime soon. Somebody made a good point recently(I think it may have been Shelton) that the team may just decide to keep Victor around to appease Cabrera. I could totally see them doing that.

    I'm in San Diego right now for work, so I'm out last night with a Tigers hat on and a guy goes to me "You a Detroit fan?" and I told him of course that's where I'm from and he says "I'm still pissed off at you guys for what you did to us in 84". I said "Yeah I was only 2 then, wish I could've experience it" and he said "I don't care if you were 2 or not I'm still pissed about it." I swear in 2045 if I come across a Giants fan I hope I still have the anger for them that this guy had for the Tigers.

    The Tigers are on Pace for 75 wins where as most projections have them around 70, so it's not like they are that far ahead what people thought. Plus they haven't played any games against the AL elite with the exception of Cleveland. Honestly the rest of the Central's struggles make it seem like the Tigers have been better than they are.
  6. He should've been moved to the bullpen years ago. I blame Kate Upton.
  7. The other day I found myself watching a bunch of old mlb highlight videos on YouTube one of them was a 10 minute Randy Johnson compilation. A few minutes into it I thought to myself "that announcer is spewing the same tired cliches that Rod does" then I remembered that Rod used to broadcast for the dbacks and realized it was him. His voice sounded different but other than that he hasn't changed in like 20 years.

    Will Kozma wear a Cardinals or a Tigers hat when he gets to Cooperstown?

    Shane Greene ladies and gentlemen.

    2018 Draft Pick Watch

    Not according to Sportz, I saw him on Twitter commenting on Tweets about Mize, he says he wouldn't take him number 1 cause he doesn't have the stuff to get big league hitters out and that his FB isn't good enough to get swings and misses in the zone like Fulmers. Not sure if he's just trolling people, if he genuinely believes that or if he just has to be a contrarian.

    The year is 2025 and Mickey is still predicting this is the year Father time takes down LeBron.

    I was wrong about the trade for Ray and the trading away from him. I really liked Greene, mainly because of how he looked against the Tigers the previous summer. He was touching 98 with "late movement" as Jim price would say. Turns out I put way too much stock in that one performance.

    It figures the year we're not competing is the year we finally find a cheap reliable starter to fill out the rotation. Could've used this when we were throwing out the Penny and Pelfreys of the world.

    Damn that sucks, his numbers looked good so I assumed he looked fine. I heard Manning's velo was down as well, I wonder if it is something in the coaching?

    I could see how drafting the local kid may drum up more interest in fans the first year since they are familiar with the player. Mateen Cleaves comes to mind with the Pistons. But outside of that I don't think fans care, especially in baseball where most don't follow collegiately.
