    Fist City: population...Rod and Mario

    Well, if the Tigers are going to play like it's 2001, might as well have the announcers of 2001.

    Justin Verlander Traded to Astros

    I agree with this. Bartolo Colon's 2005 Cy Young win is probably the last "old school" win. If that voting were to be redone, Johan Santana would easily win.

    Justin Verlander Traded to Astros

    That's because voters only care about wins. Snell led the league with 21 while Verlander only had 16. It's not like anyone with 10 wins will ever win the Cy Young.

    But the Tigers have yet to commit to Castellanos as a DH only player. Even after the retirement of Victor Martinez. But it's still early in the off-season and we don't really know the Tigers' full plan for 2019 yet.

    Candy could be another Austin Jackson, where he has his best years in the start of his career. Although no one seems to know exactly how injured he was last year, which makes it hard to evaluate him. You do have to wonder why the Cubs were willing to get so little in return for him. What do they know that we don't? And I'm pretty sure every team but the Tigers sees Castellanos as another DH type (like JD). So I don't think the Braves are a good fit. Nick is going to have a harder time in free agency because he does hit 40 home runs like JD.

    30 is the new 20.

    Do people still complain about Ausmus after he's gone?

    Sorry, still new. I don't see a "other teams' news" thread.

    Good, the plan next year should be to leadoff Candelario and then immediately pinch run for him. Sort of like an opener, but with batters instead of pitchers.

    To be fair, Iglesias' OBP (.310) wasn't much different than Candelario's (.317). And Iglesias did lead the Tigers in stolen bases, far ahead of Candelario. And hey, I guess Jones is going to learn how to hit next year to beat out Candelario for the leadoff spot. Gardenhire is stuck in his ways. It's going to take a lot for him to adjust his lineup once he has it set in stone. I don't see Candelario moving from the top spot anytime soon.

    If Gardenhire continues to be the manager, Candelario will be leading off and Goodrum will be the cleanup hitter.

    The Tigers should try and sign Manny Machado

    No? I mean, Alan Trammell was a long time ago.
