  1. I won't be surprised if both Cespedes and Upton get 7/$150 now. Owners have the money to spend.
  2. Sign Upton with an opt out after three years? I'd rather not sign Gordon for his decline years. Cespedes' lack of obp is concerning.
  3. Thanks for this. It's not easy to keep up with Avila this off season. He's certainly put his stamp on this team in a big way so far.
  4. In my day, the players we drafted stayed with the team for 20 years. They played in the snow and the rain. They got mud on their uniforms and they liked it! New fangled sabermerwhatsits grumble grumble...
  5. Micro given props on mlbtraderumors.
  6. Which ones are out of options?

I'm not up to date on some of these names. Who will be on the 25 man roster and what do the backups have to offer.
  8. I was a huge Bergman fan growing up. Thanks for the memories. Sad news indeed...
  9. I will be shocked if Avila is healthy enough to play 100 games. The hits he's taken are no joke and would take a toll on anyone.
  10. The Tigers promote their players pretty aggressively. Guys like Castellanos, Porcello, Verlander, etc were called up in their early 20s. If they kept those guys in the minors like some teams do would their system be better? I'd rather evaluate an organization overall rather than just one aspect. Minor league talent can quickly become major league flops. I want my team to have good talent under 30 years old at the major league level and the minors contribute to that but there are other ways to build a team. They don't give out world series rings to the team with the best minor league system.
  11. The only reason I can think of is he is one of the few left handed hitters they have.
