  1. I was just thinking maybe this deal with the Cubs can get done tonight. He has been "my Tiger" for quite a few years now, but it's clear the two sides are parting ways. Get a deal done and bring up Reyes for the road trip and move on to focus on trading Greene and Boyd.
  2. This would be fun one of these years. I'm already committed to something else that weekend.
  3. A Well DD didn't sign a bunch of unwatchable stop-gap 1 year deals hoping to flip them. B Oh they should keep those guys up. It's the Goodrums, Carpenters, Hicks, Wilsons, Dixons, Harrisons, Mercers that I don't care to watch attempt to play baseball. I want to see more of Stewart, Reyes and Turnbull along with the other guys I mentioned. C True on the economics, but the question was how 03 differs from 19. I want to see guys that will be on the Tigers in 21 and 22 which is why I bought the MiLB package and watch those games instead. In my eyes they are still in the tearing down phase and creating talent depth in the minors, but at the MLB level the true "rebuild" will start next season (hopefully). I'd bet 2020 looks closer to 2003 than 2019 does. Kind of like what Joe Louis Arena looks like right now.
  4. This is my take as well and what frustrates me about 2019...and why I stopped watching TV games since mid-May. DD brought the guys in/up to see what he had. Inge, Maroth, Bonderman, CMo, Omar, Ramon etc. I still watched the Tigers when I could from Wisconsin and had interest, and participated on this board, because the rebuild was underway. Now. We are just bringing up Stewart, Reyes, Turnbull but yet Willi Castro, Burrows, Rogers, Cameron and even guys like Robson or Hill are still buried in the minors. Yes 1/2 or more may fail but I'd rather lose 119 to get a better view of the future, than lose 119 with the current version of the Tigers.
  5. ...and today as we were leaving we could smell the oats.
  6. Starter still not announced for this game? Could a Burrows debut be in the works?
  7. Will be through there today in about an hour. I planned the trip in stages and broke it up with MiLB parks. Hitting Clinton IA on the way back on Saturday.
  8. I still pull up that video on occasion. Such a treasure.
  9. We must have been lucky enough to be upwind from the factory, or they weren't producing anything when we were there last night. Leaving in a little while to head to KC.
  10. In Cedar Rapids Iowa now on the way to KC for the game. Went to Field of Dreams and a MWL Kernels game today.
  11. ...and I guess I'm tired of placeholders. A few of these guys are ready in Toledo or at least worth a shot to stick. I think they said 13 players in the ASG were age 25 or under. Al still operates old school. I'm hopeful we'll see some of these guys after the break. Injuries have hurt them with Al's placeholders, my point was more to the games he seems to play with some of these trades. Will be interesting to see who he holds our for this year. My gut sense is Boyd and likely Casty will be Tigers in August. I hope AA proves me wrong.
  12. Not at all. In the case of Iggy he got hurt at the wrong time, so there wasn't anything AA could do at that point. Injuries are more of my fear of not pulling a deal early, but also get the balance of waiting for injuries to happen on contenders, watching other contender moves and maybe picking off a desperate GM that feels he has a short window or leash. I would have loved to hear some more details on the JD deal, but we'll never get those. I do think there was an element of "settling" for that one. Overall I like the job AA is doing rebuilding the minors, just seems like the timing/return he get caught with his pants down. I do like him holding firm on Boyd and Greene on his asking price. Hopefully a team(s) will pony up soon.
  13. I took the Tigers up on the $17.76 offer mostly for the USA D hat.
