  1. Paredes should be in Detroit playing somewhere in the infield next year. His Zips projection for 2020 is 1.8 WAR. I doubt many, if any, of the infielders you mentioned will match that. I'd especially like to see Paredes over Lugo next year.
  2. "As Mark Anderson tweeted, marginal pieces for a marginal player." This quote, referring to the Simon-Suarez trade, made me laugh. At least Mark was half right.
  3. I think it was Omar Vizquel. To go from 119 losses to a WS appearance in three years you need a few breaks. This was a huge one.
  4. Thanks for posting this article. Interesting. Would definitely enhance the value of good defense.
  5. Scherzer is probably Hall of Fame bound as well, although his standing among Tigers fans is different from Verlander's.
  6. Honestly, what did they expect? Ride the guy out for a few months.
  7. Phillies fans are confident he will get in next year. Growing up I just remember him as a guy who clashed with everyone, and moving from team to team as a result. What I didn't know then was the abuse he took in Philadelphia as the first black Phillie. Ridiculous stuff. He wore a batting helmet in the field, and the media and fans gave him grief for it. The reason he wore it, supposedly, was to protect him from all the crap fans in Philadelphia threw at him during games.
  8. Paredes very quietly having a solid year. He's improved each month, finishing with an .829 OPS in July, First two days of August he's 6 for 8 with a walk and double. 46/47 BB/Ks in 428 plate appearances. 128 wRC+. The only knock this year is obviously the pedestrian number of HRs, 8. Among the top 100 Eastern League hitters he's the second youngest one. The other guy, who is 19, has a .594 OPS. Paredes's OPS ranks him 25th (9th currently, if you compare him to guys who are still in the EL). . Everyone above him is at least 2 years older, except for one guy who is 21. He's not Vlad Jr or Acuna, but he certainly appears on track to be an above average MLB hitter. I've also read some recent accounts that said he isn't the quite the stiff in the field that many suggested during the offseason.
  9. From 2014 thru 2015, Law was steadfast that JD Martinez was about to revert to form. Any day now...
  10. Why wouldn't they call him up? The circumstances are perfect for a look-see right now.
  11. On another site some guy who was at the game thought Mize was fine, mostly unlucky on balls in play. Another, who watched on TV, thought Mize looked bad and gave up too much hard contact, although this guy admits he is not a big fan of Mize (because his fastball is too hittable).
  12. Demeritte is exactly the kind of guy who a rebuilding team should call up immediately. Give me one good reason why he shouldn't go straight to the Tigers?
  13. The thing I like about Demeritte is his walk rate has always been above 10% and his K rate has been coming down. It now sits around 25%, not great but he's been improving. He's also consistently hit for power. They really should call him up.
  14. Waters would have been a dream. Alas, reality intervenes.
  15. What more would you expect? Heck, that 24-year old utility player in AAA ball has twice as many HRs as anyone else in the entire Tiger organization.
