    Especially on a AAAA team having minuscule probability of contending .

    If they think the superior route is to gain more playing time at the major league level under constructive supervision....ditto.

    The American league plated the only run not driven in by a home run. whodathunkit?

    So you're content to withdraw behind the semantics of "significant"? I guess that's understandable, in an insignificant sort of way. Before long the talent level on our major league level roster will be indistinguishable from most AAA teams, does that count?

    Castellanos, and Fulmer will both be eligible for big paydays prior to the rebuild coming to fruition, assuming they keep it together long enough. And, never thought I'd say this, but Zimmermann, the way he's pitched the last couple times out, has almost made himself tradeable... That's a long shot I know, but a couple teams appear to be growing towards desperate.

    So, then what you are saying is, for Candelario, Goodrum, Reyes, Jiminez, Fulmer, Alcantra, and Boyd, what we are seeing now is "as good as it's going to get"? Drat, if that is true.

    Look at the racist comments Dusty Baker has made over the years, look at Yuli Gurriel's expression last year... neither of them got fired over those. You're saying there is a justifiable double standard?

    Okay, what I'm about to say has zero relevance to Bosio, spider monkeys, or pink slips. But I think the timeline determination is going to be weighed heavily upon by Miguel Cabrera's contract. If/when they find some way out of that, then I think they'll be a little more receptive to spending to win ...just my gut.

    MCS, you were asserting that this issue was the one and only reason for the dismissal. And I was just trying to share with you that using such an absolute premise to explain an event that likely has far deeper roots, is unlikely. The "spider monkey" issue, regardless if true or not, was a trigger event.

    And I believe that Nick and Michael make legitimate foundation stones for that rebuild. The only complication on that ( my opinion of the team management's perspective) both will be eligible for big paydays before the team wants to pay them I think they are as good as gone for that reason.

    Okay?

    There was a fair share of contempt for the organization expressed over at the Tiger's MLB message board. I think that was just about the time I first started going there, fwiw.

    What about Nick and Michael? As I recall, the fan base was pretty perturbed back when we dealt Farnsworth, because many felt the team was bailing out on the fan's hopes. (Just a parallel to illustrate how fans emotions become charged even for a team with zero hope of a championship)

    Believe as you wish. I just really believe that trading away payroll is the true agenda this team is pursuing.... And in that vein when they do deal the few desirables we have remaining by the deadline, it's an easier sell to the fanbase if we are in 4th place hopelessly out of contention than if we are in second place 2-3 games out. Lets see who is still in a Tigers uniform come Aug 1.

    I think it will be a little more clear to you by the end of this month. I believe that Bosio was hired to "cultivate", not "harvest"....success came too soon for a team that doesn't want to have to explain their reluctance to otherwise take on more payroll...if you can't see what I mean by that, then I'm sorry.
