  1. This team has already tuned Gardenhire and his coaching staff out.😡
  2. LooseGoose; You assessment of Al Avila is probably correct.
  3. Detroit couldn’t attract Dallas Keuchel. Al Avila is now on a limited budget and Keuchel is going to want a four or five year deal. I believe Chris Tillman is a better short term option for the Tigers. I would offer Tillman 2 years at 7 million. Singing Tillman would allow the Tigers the opportunity to keep Alex Faedo and Matt Manning in the minors and not start their free agent clocks. Casey Mize is really making nice progress in his development. Could we see Casey in Detroit, after the all-star break, next season?
  4. Both Michael Fulmer and Matt Moore are already on the IL and Jordan Zimmerman may soon be joining them. At this time, former Baltimore Orioles starter, Chris Tillman, may be a possible free agent option for the Tigers.
  5. At this time, I’ve seen enough of Josh Harrison. Detroit should release him.
  6. Unfortunately, Marty Castillo has served time in prison, here in Florida. I’m unsure of the specific charges and I will not mention them on this message board. Marty was in the right place at the right time for the ‘84 Tigers. If my memory is correct, I believe Marty got 2 years of MLB service time in Detroit. Marty wasn’t on Detroit’s 25 man roster long enough to actually make much MLB money. In 1983-84, the rookie salary was about $63,000 before taxes. Marty was out of baseball by 1986. I hope he is now finding some stability in his life.
  7. Any interest in Justin Bour or Caleb Joseph?
  8. The Miami Marlins didn’t offer Derek Dietrich a contract. I’d love to have him in a Tigers uniform. Dietrich can play first, third, and the corner outfield positions. I believe he would be a reasonably priced free agent, and I believe he’s a better utility player than Niko Goodrum.If the Tigers sign both Dietrich and Goodrum, they can option Dawel Lugo to AAA for more development. I have no idea why Derek Jeter is dumping the Marlins roster. Jeter is rumored to be trading J.T. Realmuto, too.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
