  1. Justin Verlander Traded to Astros

    I was thinking the same thing. He would also have pulled him in his complete game win. Probably pull him after 7.
  2. Ron Gardenhire is your new Tiger manager

    A few years too late. Lets see what he can do.

    Could not have said it better, great find and very cool. Thank you for sharing.

    See ya fella's back in the spring on Tiger game threads. It has been fun observing games threads and chiming in here and there and getting different perspectives from my fellow Morons. Go Lions!!!

    I know everyone wants the Tigers to lose but why was Zimmerman taken out after the 6th inning cruising with an 84 pitch count? I only looked at the box score. I can only guess Brad needed to put in his 7th inning guy. Can't wait for Brad to be gone. Btw I hope they keep losing but do not want them to lose 100. 99 would fine. Ha ha.

    Wonder if the Tigers could put up a retractable net in the outfield to protect the fans when the bullpen comes in.
  7. Pregame: Lions -v- Falcons Sunday 1:00pm on Fox

    Plus in the event it fails, you still have a play or two. Just frustrating.
  8. Pregame: Lions -v- Falcons Sunday 1:00pm on Fox

    Maybe a running play or a rollout run/pass was in order on first down. Ugh . tough loss.
  9. Pregame: Lions -v- Falcons Sunday 1:00pm on Fox

    Tough one, real tough. I replayed the DVR and its real close IMHO. A coin flip call I guess but the ruling was a TD so why overturn it? Also you can make a case that the defender grabbed Tate before the ball arrived. Really a heart-breaking loss.

    Was at the game and when they brought Jimenez to pitch in a 4-3 game I said, "I'd be shocked if the score is not more than 8 - 3 before the inning is over". It was a bad 8th inning. Boyd pitched pretty good.

    First Tiger game of the year. The Tiger Hawaiian shirt give-away for the first 10,000 fans is what put me over the edge, plus the possibility of seeing a no-hitter with Boyd pitching. With tickets so cheap on Stub Hub, its no different than going to a movie price wise. Popcorn is better at the movie theaters though.
  12. If not Ausmus then who?

    Regardless of who is the next Tiger manager, I hope his name can easily rhyme in a message board post when the team goes sour .... ala Darkness with Harkness or Brad Dumbass. Being serious, I like the idea of Lance Parrish, just because. I would have no issues with Omar Vizquel either.
  13. Ausmus being let go?

    I have never forgiven Ausmus for putting Chamberlain in the 8th inning of game 2 in a 6-3 game against the Orioles in 2014. Sanchez was dealing in the 6th and 7th inning (I know he was coming off the DL if memory serves me correct but go to the well and get the job). It was from that moment on that I realized Aumus was a robot. Sandy Koufax in his prime could have pitched a perfect 6th and 7th and Ausmus was going to Chamberlain because he was his 8th inning guy. I saw little improvement if any over the next 3 years. http://www.foxsports.com/mlb/boxscore?id=59295
  14. Ausmus being let go?

    What he said.
  15. https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2017/09/19/toys-r-us-files-bankruptcy-shoppers-should-prepare-holiday-deals/680823001/ I am sure the Tiger bullpen giving away games this year sure did not help with the bottom line. What other iconic stores do you remember as a kid that are no longer around? For the local folks, remember Farrell's?
