    Exactly.  By picking in the top 5 for the last 5 years they actually now have top level prospects to look forward to.  If there is any criticism of Avila it's that that's ALL they have (other than Skubal) and that none of their other picks appear to be panning out and the prospects from trades don't appear to be very good.

    But the top 5 picks are still well regarded, which is a lot better position than they were in a few years ago.

    I think Cabrera, Workman, Colt and some others have a chance. Also don't forget the international kids

    Speaking of the 5th grade...

    My teacher’s name was Mrs. Wilson. True story. We had a writing assignment at home that was to be read aloud in class the following day. Forgot the circumstances but I didn’t have my paper done. When each student began reading their assignment aloud, seat by seat, row by row, I had to have a plan. I didn’t have the guts to tell the teacher I didn’t have mine. I sat approximately center of the room. The teacher was at the front. I came up with a plan. When it was my turn, I stared at a blank piece of paper and verbally did a report on the Lewis and Clark Expedition that ran maybe 2.5 minutes. Probably the longest 2.5 minutes of my life. 

    What school were you in? I'm telling!

  3. I'd add Lenny Dykstra to that list, if we're including non tigers. And who was that flame throwing relief pitcher who used to spout off crazy stuff maybe 15 years ago? Think he pitched for the Braves, or maybe the Phillies?

    It was either yesterday or the day before "Super 70s Sports" posted a shirtless Lasorda pic to their Twitter feed and I thought to myself "Is Lasorda still alive?" So I Googled him.  Crazy to think he died a day or two later.  

    That's probably why he died

    It needs to be said again.  Look at the patrolling that was done in DC during the summer BLM protests and compare and contrast to today.  Don’t tell me it’s just a mere coincidence.  Don’t be so ******* clueless.

    Pic of govt preparations for BLM protest. Quite the juxtaposition
