    Why all of the empty space in your post?

    Down 3-0 in the 7th yesterday, almost came back 

    Down 8-4 in the 8th the day before, almost came back.

    Day before down 7-3 in the 9th, almost came back. 

    His mark seems to be not quitting. But sure, blame Lloyd if that's easier. 

    User error on the empty  space.  My post was tongue in cheek, Lloyd is playing with a short deck ,as he is missing: Jacoby, Schoop, Cron, now Candy, plus a lot of 4A guys on O and a pitching staff that for the most part does not pitch well at all.


  2. Is it me or does it feel like if this was a regular 162 game season that the Tigers would have lost about 105 games or so when it was all said and done?  Some injuries have hampered them, and their early season 1 run luck is starting to even out (tonight would be a 4th straight game that could be a 1 run loss).

    This stretch was when the wheels fell off last year as well

    It would be nice not to finish last for a change. Otherwise no real difference.

    At this point, i say finish behind the Royals and get a better draft pick.  Play as many young guys as you can, let them get some more experience, but lose the last 3 (or 5 if they play the Cards).

    Of course i am watching and hoping they win, but it would be better to lose

  4. Offense is finding its water level.  Cabrera looks awful, and a bottom 3 of Daz, Greiner and Alcantara has limited chance to do anything.  Not sure why Gardy would throw that lineup out there.  
    Greiner has to go, he cannot hit anything at all, hitting .128 with 6 hits all year (one of which was a BP HR off a position player last week).  
    I would send him down and bring up Rogers, he cannot be any worse.  

    Hopefully the Tigers are starting to weed out their dead weight (Stewart, Greiner, Jiminez) amongst others,

    Ozuna is somebody I would like the Tigers to take a look at this offseason.   Jones, Reyes and him would make a pretty solid OF offensively and defensively.   

    I also would be open to giving Schoop an extension.   It's a dream and best case scenario but if all these things were to happen our lineup next year could look something like this.

    Reyes CF/LF

    Schoop 2b

    Miggy DH

    Tork 1B

    Ozuna RF

    Candy 3B

    Willi SS

    Rogers/Greiner C

    Jacoby CF/LF

    If Tork isn't ready then you can have Candy at 1B and Paredes at 3B.   Either way IF the 3 of Reyes, Candy and Willi are indeed legit then this would be a pretty damn good lineup.  

    As long as Stewart is not in that mix, i am good.  I like the idea of signing Schoop on a 2 year deal

    What is the reason for a Bonifacio?  Outfielders are non-extant in our system?  Did all of them get the Covid?

    He is playing instead of Stewart, so what does that tell you about Stewart?  The Tigers are going to need to find some semblance of hitters to ever think about getting out of this malaise.  Greene and Tork are huge for this franchise, as most of the other younger hitters are not much to write home about.
