    After 72 games

    Castellanos will be eligible for a big payday before the timeframe for the rebuild runs it's course, so I think the Tigers will "sell high" while they can. Note that Avila just today side stepped a question seeking him to commit on making Nick a foundation for the rebuild. If Shane Green keeps on a decent clip, I think he'll be able to arbitrate more money than the organization wants to spend for the time being, so that's why I think he's a goner too. Iggy, they'll pitch just to save the money And Fulmer, I just really think they'll trade him because he too might be able to command some good arb money before the organization is again ready to spend....."cheap to keep" seems to be the mantra these days, and Michael might be seen as a threat to that.

    Yeah, but poor Brad didn't have the goose in his corner

    After 72 games

    After 72 games in 2017, the Detroit Tigers were 32-40 ( .444) and were in 5th place, 7.5 games out of first place. After 72 games in 2018, the Detroit Tigers are 35-37 ( .486) in second place 2.5 games behind the under performing Indians. The 2017 Tigers had the benefit of services from such stars as JD Martinez, Justin Upton, Justin Verlander, and Ian Kinsler, not to mention the expert management of analytics savvy Brad Ausmus while the 2018 Tigers must make do with old-skool Ron and a greatly reduced payroll, but of course, they have the benefit of the goose! Gardenhire>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Ausmus. 🎯 But Gardenhire has a tremendous challenge ahead of him, he's got only about a month to get this team OUT of contention so that the Tigers fanbase will not feel betrayed when the Tigers deal the few players they have left having trade value at the non-waiver deadline. Nice knowing you Nick, Michael, Jose, and Shane ....best wishes

    Any relation to Duke Sims?

    I've been called a lot of things in my time, but"Stan Papi" isn't one of them.

    Gardenhire >>>>>>>>>>>>>>Ausmus

    I could be wrong about that, but the mere mention seems to have inspired the response I expected. Lady McBeth: "out, out d*mn spots" etc.

    Gardenhire >>>>>>>>>>>>>>Ausmus

    No, no one has ever called me that.

    If I felt that volunteering that information was important I would have already done so. Hope you understand, I'm "rebuilding"

    Sorry to disappoint you all, but I've never been here before. Singling people out isn't cliquish at all, is it?
  10. DumberAndLeaner

    Gardenhire >>>>>>>>>>>>>>Ausmus

    Yeah, you were wrong about that too. Generally the only people to take exception when the "clique" card is played are those who are actually part of one. Most everybody else just wonders where that idea came from. So, you pretty much confessed.

    Gardenhire >>>>>>>>>>>>>>Ausmus

    That was because it was a continuation of the theme of comparing scripted plots to the discussion at hand, and pretending there is some relevance. Watch the movie Hoosiers and you'll see what I'm talking about.

    Gardenhire >>>>>>>>>>>>>>Ausmus

    Perhaps it's that lecture you promised me and then never followed through?
  13. DumberAndLeaner

    Gardenhire >>>>>>>>>>>>>>Ausmus

    That post was actually intended for your benefit. You're welcome! Originally I had planned to use the word "xenophobia" in place of "group think", but decided to soften it since I'm new here.

    Gardenhire >>>>>>>>>>>>>>Ausmus

    Agreed, I don't hate Ausmus, I hate the decision to hire him as manager.
  15. DumberAndLeaner

    Gardenhire >>>>>>>>>>>>>>Ausmus

    Agree with you there, also. I suspect somebody has decided he needs to face as much pitching at the major league level as possible. Hence they shuffle him around as other priorities come and go.
