  1. The real question is, will the Tigers break from their penny pinching ways enough to sign any of these guys? No doubt they could add some talent to the team
  2. Yeah, he could be a good bench piece on a contender.
  3. Realistically, he could probably play short and 1B too. Can't be any less of a liability at those spots than ronny rodriguez was.
  4. Yeah, Bird has some pop. Also strikes out at 27% but has done so in the majors. It's an upgrade I guess.
  5. I think the Tigers should target a bat, preferably one that comes with a glove. Also, as great as it may be to snag someone with a good bit of upside even though they haven't played above A+ ball, I'm not sure that would work out well and seems kind of unfair to the player. So, I would disqualify anyone that hasn't at least played some AA. I'm down with Ramos, he'd probably be just as good as anyone else the Tigers have to stick at 1B. Also, Trent Giambrone, middle infielder with the cubs that has hit ok throughout minors. http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?player_id=623508#/career/R/hitting/2019/ALL
  6. So there is a 16 member committee voting on these 10 and each individual needs 75% to be elected, or 12 of the 16 members. The only information I cant find is how many people each member gets to vote for. Anyone know? I'm guessing each member votes for just 2 or 3, maybe 4. https://www.mlb.com/news/10-players-named-to-hof-modern-baseball-era-ballot
  7. If you would have told me three years ago that Anibal Sanchez was going to start a world series game in 2019 I would have laughed. Baseball is a funny game.
  8. To be fair, Verlander is an all time great. Most teams are lucky to have a handful of guys like that throughout their entire history. We were lucky enough to have two at once. Still, I know what you mean, it'd be nice for another future hall of famer to play for detroit in the next decade. Things sure will be bleak by the 2030's if nobody does.....
  9. Plus, the simple nature of being a hitter leads to more failure than success and requires for more opportunities to let averages play themselves out. That probably buys players more like months rather than years though.
  10. So I'm watching the cards/braves and see that both teams only have 3 true starters on their postseason rosters. Are they hoping to get through the series with just those 3 or are they planning to bullpen a game? Side note, I'm really enjoying all the roster management strategy of these NL games. I hope they never get the DH, it's more fun this way.
  11. Interesting, I listened to the Oakland broadcast all night. Although, the sound kept mysteriously turning down so I had to re-turn it up every few innings. Could be that my phone is old and sucks or that the app sucks, which is no secret. I'm going to blame MLB. Hopefully the streams come back for you for the rest of the playoffs.
  12. He isn't making any strides towards the HOF with his managerial career
  13. I'm not sure what that motivation was but he did seem to have predetermined something in his head. I used to ump high school and sometimes your instincts just take over and call what you see. Other times you see one thing, think about how badly you want the call to go the other way, then make a call without really thinking and its wrong. Im thinking of times when a 14 year old kid has thrown 15 straight balls and then one is finally kind of close to the strikezone... Not exactly the last out of a perfect game but mistakes can be made.
