  1. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2019/08/tigers-were-offered-baez-bregman-in-2017-offers-for-michael-fulmer.html This article seems to think so. I don't remember hearing anything about Bregman being a possible trade option. I'm not sure how much stock to put in this writing, but if it's true it's a real shame that Detroit didn't pull the trigger on that.
  2. Hey, way to early yet, but this team might actually be kind of good.
  3. Honestly I'd just like to see him released at this point, if he's out of options. I'd consider keeping him around if he had some pop in his bat or was a bit better of a defender in center.
  4. Nice win boys. Can we all give up on the idea of Mikie Mahtook being a serviceable everyday player now?
  5. I was hoping we wouldn't see Rondon again after he got demoted in April. The fact that he's even at the major league level at all is very telling about the state of the Tigers right now.
  6. I guess with Brad I really wonder what kind of bullpen moves do you question the most. To me it's hard to separate those out from roster construction, which isn't necessarily an issue on him. Honestly there's only so much a manager can do when his bullpen arms are liable to implode and any given time. I do really wonder how much influence he has over call ups and fa signings, though Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  7. Well, I'm changing my vote to sell. The minute I started feeling any sort of optimism about this bunch they immediately rail off a losing streak. Way to inspire confidence guys Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  8. Not so sure that Ausmus deserves to be fired mid season, when a lot of the issues with the team are rooted in how it's been built. A lot of this stuff was fairly predictable going into the season. The move I really hated was bringing McClendon back. I don't think he really showed much while he was here under Leyland, and there move just stuck me as an uninspired hire. That's not necessarily on Ausmus. If he opposed the hire and still had Lloyd pushed onto him, then that doesn't say a lot of good things about his standing with ownership. If he was all for it, then they doesn't say a lot of good things in his choice of staff. Pick your poison, I guess Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. So how are we defining "still within reach?" If the twins keep rolling, is it realistic that we catch them? Or is there an arbitrary line, like 5 games or over out of first place by the beginning of July? Honestly if I were Avila now is at least be making phone calls to establish the market value for guys like JD or the Wilsons.
  10. Everybody was chipping in defensively. That grab that Kinsler made for the DP like the next inning was pretty special as well.
  11. Because you knew it was coming. What's the sense of the fanbase here? I have become cautiously optimistic, if anything because I want to give JV and Miggy one more shot at a playoff run while they're in Detroit uniforms. Verlander has definitely started to put it together, and I'm still thinking that miggy will heat up. Honestly the team doesn't have a whole lot of really tradeable assets right now in my view, and the farm system is just starting to show signs of optimism. If there's a piece you trade for what kind of guy would you like to get and who would you give up for him?
  12. Yeah, I didn't understand the move to put krod in last night. He just confirmed that he can't be trusted with any situation remotely high leverage. Would rather see him here than Saupold logging extra innings which could become critical if they're in contention later in the season
  13. Crappy throw by Beckham, but the 1b should have gloved it.
  14. No HR. So disappointing Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
