    Kdog your avatar makes you look like a garden gnome.
  2. 4/24 @7:05 Detroit Tigers vs Pittsburgh Pirates

    Jim Adduci hit 2 home runs and a double today in a doubleheader. After the second game Al Avila called him again, this time just begging him to accept a callup, but once again Jim told him to go **** himself, only a lot more emphatically than last time. Avila just doesn't seem to understand the business empire that Jim is building in Toledo and how he needs to be there every day to supervise its growth. The strip clubs, yes I suppose that Barbato and Lewicki could look after those for a few days but it isn't optimal. As for poker which is the biggest revenue generator so far, if Jim isn't there personally to play, well duh. A more recent initiative by Jim is the distribution of cigarettes which he can get, shall we say, "wholesale". If you are wondering about the recent disappearance of a couple of 18-wheelers full of cigarettes on their way to Toledo, that's a very disturbing circumstance and Jim is already on the record as having condemned it. So once again, Al Avila did the only thing that he could do at the end of the telephone conversation with Jim. He apologized as humbly as he could, and then he quietly hung up the phone.
  3. Bunting to beat the shift. Why is that wrong?

    Here's Joe Posnanski on bunting against the shift: https://www.mlb.com/news/making-sense-of-the-twins-bunting-gripe/c-270501102 It's a good read.

    We're going to lose in a blowout, and Zimm will lower his ERA.
  5. Justin Verlander Traded to Astros

    Ha ha - another reason to miss Verlander, he was the funniest guy on the team.

    You know, I haven't been on that yacht either. It's because that rat ******* MWG hates me.

    How much more rope do we give this guy?
  8. The 2018 Detroit Tigers Season (Already In Progress)

    That does sound promising. You said it earlier, he needs to find that speed again without falling off the mound after every pitch. But the spin rate seems to indicate that the talent is still there.
  9. Fly Ball Extravaganza

    I'm really looking forward to his next start, instead of dreading it. The most fascinating thing is pitches per inning, 14.74. What have you done with the real Matthew Boyd?
  10. Fly Ball Extravaganza

    Yeah I noticed that about Boyd yesterday, he only has 11 ground ball outs or something like that. Pretty weird.

    Let's package up Wilson, VerHagen and Farmer and see what we can get. It doesn't even have to be baseball players - maybe a vintage pinball machine or something.

    Ugh, look at that KC lineup. Mike Moustakas must hate going to work in the morning. I see Ryan Goins is hitting .240...don't worry, he'll cool off.
  13. Hope Springs Eternal

    Wow, that magic number is dropping like a stone. The Tigers are only 1.5 games back of the division lead. Yes, 3.5 out of the wildcard, but who needs that? Winning the division is a lead pipe cinch right now. This is the most thrilling pennant race in years.
  14. 4/20 @~7:10 Kansas City Royals vs Detroit Tigers

    Absolutely. He would have been even grittier with a Ukrainian surname, but nevertheless. That was one gritty guy.
  15. 4/20 @~7:10 Kansas City Royals vs Detroit Tigers

    That's understandable, but grit is so difficult to quantify. Here's my question: was Skeeter Barnes gritty? It seems impossible at first, but he might have been. If so, then Goodrum might actually be gritty as well.
