    2018-19 Off-season Thread

    Any interest in Yasmani Grandal? I know the Tigers are now on a strict budget, however Grandal seems like he might be a reasonably priced free agent.

    Who Would Help The Tigers More?

    I agree. Re-building effort or not, Manny Machado would be a great addition to Detroit ‘s lineup. It’s not gonna happen, however it’s nice to think about during the off-season.

    When does Prince Fielder’s contract come off the Tigers books? I know Fielder retired due to a neck injury. I’m sure insurance and the Texas Rangers are also paying portions of Fielder’s contract. I’m just not sure how all the accounting shakes out over time.

    Who Would Help The Tigers More?

    Should the Tigers sign Many Machado or Justin Verlander? Machado will be a free agent after this season and Verlander will be a free agent after 2019. I would like to see Al Avila contact the agent for both of them. Ron Gardenhire, I believe, has the temperament to manage big league eagos. Right now, Machado is getting some heat for slapping at Jesus Aguilar trying to dislodge the ball. Yes, I believe Machado deserves a fine, however I wouldn’t hold that infraction against him for too long. We all know Machado can play the game at a big level consistently.

    Justin Verlander Traded to Astros

    Since leaving the Tampa Bay Rays, David Price has become a PUNK. He never embraced the trade to the Tigers. Price and Ausmus hated one another. In Boston, Price has had a confrontation with Dennis Eckersley. Eckersley was critical of Price and the Red Sox during a losing streak. Eckersley works Red Sox games as a commentator. He was just doing his job. It’s nice to see Eckersley being critical and not always in agreement with Red Sox nation.

    Justin Verlander Traded to Astros

    Overall, Verlander does have good post season stats, however Pablo Sandoval, Nelson Cruz and now, J.D. Martinez and Rafael Devers have brutalized him with the HR’s. He also has no wins in the World Series. The national media would tell Us Verlander can’t deliver on the big stage. The national media hated the Tigers for upstaging the Yankees in 2006 and 2012. Don Kelly hit a big HR in 2012.

    Justin Verlander Traded to Astros

    I agree. The Brewers and Dodgers don’t appear to match up well with the Red Sox. I also can’t bring myself to root for the Red Sox.

    Justin Verlander Traded to Astros

    If Verlander was still wearing a Tigers uniform, he would probably be considered an overrated pitcher, in post season play. The national media would be bashing him and calling the Tigers a small market team and playoff pretender. Verlander is fortunate to have gotten his World Series ring last year.(2017)

    Mike Emrick

    The Tigers should hire Mike Emrick away from NBC to broadcast Tigers TV games. Mike Emrick has a Ph.D. so making the transition from hockey broadcast to baseball broadcast shouldn’t be difficult for him. Gary Thorne, who one called New Jersey Devils games, now does a great job calling Baltimore Orioles games. I’m sure Mike Emrick has met the Illitch family at some point and time during his career.
  10. I don’t believe Ron Gardenhire will be back next year. This rebuild is gonna take about eight years and no way Gardenhire stays around to see it completed. I like Ron Gardenhire, and I’m just giving my opinion. Also, show Al Avila the door, soon. Thanks, UCFKNIGHT92
