Great, a wonderful character to go with the fine 6+ ERA.

It would be nice if Chris I could find the MLB equivalent of Stevie Y to run the org.  At least I would have faith.

He probably should have raided either the Astros or Cubs front offices at the onset of this rebuild, to get someone who had a seat at the table.

I had forgotten these tidbits about Holland...

During a game in the 2012 season, Holland's Twitter account was used to attack another Twitter user with a slur. Holland responded to the ensuing controversy by claiming his Twitter account was hacked.[25]

In 2018, Holland appeared in a skit on MLB Network's Intentional Talk in which he mocked Asian people by feigning a racially insensitive accent.[26] Holland didn't agree with assertions that his actions were racist, but said he understood why people were upset.[27] The San Francisco Giants and Holland later apologized for his actions.

In 2019, Holland verbally attacked the Giants and claimed they made him fake an injury so as to be placed on the injured list. The Giants denied the allegation.[28]

Well isn’t that dandy?  If they’re going to acquire stink, at least acquire likable stink.

I read Holland has a rocky horror fetish and that his left foot has 7 toes.

The 1971 all star game is on MLBN.  Game time was 2:03.  Only 8 pitchers total were used, and they pitched multiple innings.  Imagine that?  Reggie smashed the light tower about ten minutes ago.  Tigers included were Cash, Lolich, Freehand, Kaline.  Some red head from the Expos was on the NL roster which was managed by some white haired guy from the Reds.

I texted the find to my dad figuring he’d get a kick out of watching it.  My dad just told me he was at a bar with my mom on a blind date watching this game.  Can’t picture my mom at a bar, but hey, I guess we were all young once.

ST fodder. I would guess they want a lot of extra arms for ST because they probably want to keep training innings to the bare minimum for anyone who they they think might have a role in Detroit during the season.

Pirates are working hard to tank bigger than us, the battle for the 2022 draft’s top pick is on!

Taillon is a double TJ guy. IIRC, Anibal Sanchez had had two TJ's before coming the Tigers and he has held up pretty well - but maybe the other surgery was shoulder - can't find it right now.

Honestly, that seems a lot more realistic to me.

I’ll be interested when Fangraphs comes out.

I’m fine with being depressed AF once the results are in. But to say this is another 1989-2005 is just a biiiiiiiiit over the top. 
 

Let’s go back to 2005 and see how many of y’all were predicting 2006 AL champs.

Wait a minute: are you predicting the 2021 AL champion Detroit Tigers?

Thanks for clarifying that, Sir Galahad. I look forward to you defending me when someone asks me an equally sarcastic question. 😁

Red Sox buy Yankees 24th best prospect by picking up Ottavino's $9m salary; Sox might be able to then flip him at deadline.

a different way to add talent to your system if you are creative enough and will spend a little $$$

Pretty sure Lee also felt you were asking a serious question. It seemed like a Chas thing.

It was a sarcastic question and I gave a sarcastic response.  Whether or not it was serious, I don't know.  Sarcasm is usually partly serious.

I don’t think the tigers are close to being AL champs. 

I also do not think we’re entering a 22 year period of futility.

I don’t think anyone rightly guessed in April of 2006 that 6 months later the Tigers would be sweeping their way to the AL Pennant.

Surprises happen. Players improve, have career years. If one year from now we’re still depressed that we haven’t signed “anyone” I’ll join in. But the Chris I., Al, AJ Hinch experiment gets at least a year before we declare the next two decades gone.

Raiding other front offices for successful people both takes imagination and costs money.
