  1. They are just waiting for Verlander's contract to expire so they can sign him. The fact that he will be 39 and recovering from Tommy John surgery might be a bit of a snag in their plans, but I have faith in Avila.
  2. Time to reflect how horrible my predictions are. I attempted to scale my predictions to a 58-game season. Jonathan Schoop: 2020 Prediction – 185 AB | .249/.313/454 | 9 HR | 24 RBI | 0 SB | 9 BB | 50 K 2020 Actual – 162 AB | .278/.324/.475 | 8 HR | 23 RBI | 0 SB | 8 BB | 39 K C.J. Cron: 2020 Prediction – 155 AB | .239/.328/.484 | 10 HR | 24 RBI | 0 SB | 11 BB | 46 K 2020 Actual – 42 AB | .190/.346/.548 | 4 HR | 8 RBI | 0 SB | 9 BB | 16 K Austin Romine: 2020 Prediction – 88 AB | .227/.271/.398 | 3 HR | 14 RBI | 0 SB | 4 BB | 22 K 2020 Actual – 130 AB | .238/.259/.323 | 2 HR | 17 RBI | 0 SB | 4 BB | 47 K Miguel Cabrera: 2020 Prediction – 166 AB | .265/.342/.410 | 5 HR | 21 RBI | 0 SB | 19 BB | 39 K 2020 Actual – 204 AB | .250/.329/.417 | 10 HR | 35 RBI | 0 SB | 24 BB | 51 K Niko Goodrum: 2020 Prediction – 150 AB | .233/.320/.413 | 5 HR | 17 RBI | 4 SB | 16 BB | 48 K 2020 Actual – 158 AB | .184/.263/.335 | 5 HR | 20 RBI | 7 SB | 18 BB | 69 K JaCoby Jones: 2020 Prediction – 142 AB | .204/.281/.415 | 6 HR | 13 RBI | 5 SB | 11 BB | 50 K 2020 Actual – 97 AB | .268/.333/.515 | 5 HR | 14 RBI | 1 SB | 7 BB | 34 K Christin Stewart: 2020 Prediction – 163 AB | .221/.306/.429 | 7 HR | 20 RBI | 0 SB | 18 BB | 48 K 2020 Actual – 90 AB | .167/.224/.300 | 3 HR | 9 RBI | 0 SB | 5 BB | 30 K Cameron Maybin: 2020 Prediction – 121 AB | .231/.324/.421 | 4 HR | 11 RBI | 5 SB | 15 BB | 32 K 2020 Actual – 93 AB | .247/.307/.387 | 1 HR | 7 RBI | 3 SB | 7 BB | 25 K Jeimer Candelario: 2020 Prediction – 117 AB | .197/.314/.342 | 3 HR | 11 RBI | 1 SB | 13 BB | 36 K 2020 Actual – 185 AB | .297/.369/.503 | 7 HR | 29 RBI | 1 SB | 20 BB | 49 K Ivan Nova: 2020 Prediction – 68 IP | 3-5 W/L | 4.76 ERA | 1.279 WHIP | 39 K | 17 BB 2020 Actual – 19 IP | 1-1 W/L | 8.53 ERA | 1.632 WHIP | 9 K | 9 BB Matt Boyd: 2020 Prediction – 68 1/3 IP | 4-3 W/L | 3.82 ERA | 1.083 WHIP | 78 K | 18 BB 2020 Actual – 60 1/3 IP | 3-7 W/L | 6.71 ERA | 1.475 WHIP | 60 K | 22 BB Dan Norris: 2020 Prediction – 52 IP | 3-3 W/L | 4.33 ERA | 1.385 WHIP | 47 K | 15 BB 2020 Actual – 27 2/3 IP | 3-1 W/L | 3.25 ERA | 1.157 WHIP | 28 K | 7 BB Spencer Turnbull: 2020 Prediction – 57 1/3 IP | 3-3 W/L | 3.92 ERA | 1.169 WHIP | 54 K | 22 BB 2020 Actual – 56 2/3 IP | 4-4 W/L | 3.97 ERA | 1.341 WHIP | 51 K | 29 BB Jordan Zimmermann: 2020 Prediction – 43 2/3 IP | 1-4 W/L | 6.18 | 1.237 WHIP | 27 K | 10 BB 2020 Actual – 5 2/3 IP | 0-0 W/L | 7.94 ERA | 2.294 WHIP | 6 K | 2 BB
  3. If the Tigers lose today, it'll literally be a repeat of last year. Through 58 games: 2019: 23-35 2020: 23-34 (1 game remaining)
  4. I agree with this. They wanted someone the fans wouldn't hate after Ausmus. This is why Avila won't hire Hinch. I can see them going with another flashy name, like Buck Showalter. "Let's get the guy that embarrassed us in the 2014 playoffs."
  5. The Tigers were 23-35 in their first 58 games last year. If they go 1-5 this week, they'll tie it. Wins are worth more in a shorter season, but so are losses.
  6. I agree with this. In June 1979, they hired Sparky Anderson instead of keeping who they had because he was "familiar." They got the guy they wanted to win with, even if it took 5 years to do so. I want the same approach now. If that guy is available in the off -season, grab him.
  7. You also said you had an opinion, but I don't see one there.
  8. Tell a business how it should operate and at the same time tell them you don't care about their financials? Sure, knock yourself out.
  9. But you're just a customer. You have no authority. That's like saying, "I shop at Wal-Mart because I like the products, not because of the financials."
  10. If Donald Trump didn't make you move to Canada, Rick Anderson will.
  11. Actually, I see that argument a lot, especially with the new Star Wars trilogy. They made a ton of money, therefore we should like it.
  12. "You are making more money than we are, but I don't see any need to copy you." Yeah, that makes sense.
  13. Did I miss something? When did Anderson become a good pitching coach?
  14. He'll be no better than what Jordan Zimmermann is after his TJ surgery.
  15. We're not even sure how "Avila" is supposed to be pronounced.
  16. How? He doesn't have any managerial experience. Isn't that why we all hated Ausmus?
  17. Is it me or is Shep and Morris worse this year than last year?
  18. Will the fact that he played on a team that cheated tarnish his World Series ring? Will it impact his HOF chances at all (like not get in his first year)?
  19. Back in April I wasn't feeling good. Finally my dad convinced me to go to emergency to take the COVID test. Came back negative. They kept me in the hospital for 5 days, during that time tested me again. Another negative. All the doctors and nurses were convinced both tests were false negatives and were treating me as if I had the virus anyway because I had the symptoms. I'm doing much better now.
  20. Edgar Renteria. Aubrey Huff. Adam Everett. Johnny Damon. Brad Penny.
  21. The player with the most saves not in the hall of fame is...K-Rod. Francisco Rodriguez | 437 SV | 2.86 ERA | 10.5 K/9 Billy Wager | 422 SV | 2.31 ERA | 11.9 K/9 Joe Nathan | 377 SV | 2.87 ERA | 9.5 K/9 Compare these guys to these 2 HOFers: Bruce Sutter | 300 SV | 2.83 ERA | 7.4 K/9 Lee Smith | 478 SV | 3.03 ERA | 8.7 K/9 Will K-Rod be the next former Tigers players to get in the HOF?
  22. Scherzer is a shoo-in. He's also a year younger than Verlander and Miggy, so he might retire last.
