Hope he's good.  We can't have the black Jordan Zimmerman or the second Dontrelle Willis.

I have a feeling that Tony LaRussa won't actually coach this season

It's kind of surprising that LaRussa would take a tough stand on the flag kneeling thing.  He used to be a huge Green Peace guy.  Those two beliefs don't seem to jive

i know, right?

i really thought they should have made a play for him last year.  this year?  i think he's being overrated a bit.  if they can get him cheap, sure.  but i'd hesitate to give him a multi year deal.

otoh, i would feel vindicated, and since it is all about me, im all for it.

Maybe when he looks at Trump he sees a beached whale.

I like Walker, I also wouldn't mind taking a 1 year flyer on James Paxton even though it probably won't come cheap.  He seems like he could potentially be this years Taijuan Walker.

Taijuan Walker would hopefully eat league-average innings in a way Ivan Nova couldn't. Also, hopefully he would occupy the #4 or #5 slot in the rotation, because if he's in the top two, that's not a good sign.

Looking at BR and FG, I thought Walker had better past success then he did; over a 3 year run he was OK. With injury history, seems risky for modest return. But happy to have any talent added.

We can certain sign someone like Walker to eat innings, but now that the Tigers have taken the big step forward by hiring (presumably) the staff that will coach us to our next pennant, I would love to see them take on an elite free agent position player this year, someone in the Realmuto/Springer/LeMahieu class. Or how about Ha-Seong Kim? Something more than a parade of one-year flippable reclamation projects. I understand it probably won't happen. But I do think it's time. And if anyone can afford it, it's Ilitch.

I'd like the Tigers to sign someone in the mold of Dock Ellis. Good pitcher, partaker of hallucinogenics

They read your resume.

One of the bullet points is "pwning morans on MTS for years".

I wonder if Lee listed anyone from here as references?

I don't know that Walker's slot in the rotation means much of anything for next season.  It seems like growing pains for the big 3 arms would be understandable.  Even if they are ticketed for Detroit, they may need a bump back down to Toledo for fine tuning (see: Scherzer), and/or the workloads are probably still going to be under scrutiny.

The Tigers are going to need innings pitched from somewhere, and it appears they're going to have to get some of them outside of the organization.  Walker makes sense for them.

Walker does make sense to eat innings. I hope we have at least three pitchers who are better than he.

so it looks like Erie will survive, WM and Lakeland will flip, Conn goes away, and the DSL and GCL will both only have 1 Tiger team, not 2?

The Miami Marlins hired Kim Ng as their G.M. I’ve never been a Marlins fan but wish her luck in her new position.

I would like to see some additions to the team. An impact position player would be great, and the prices might be relative bargains this year. Adding a Walker type makes sense too. I think G2 was advocating for quality bullpen arms earlier. With the young starters breaking in, many not likely to go deep into games, that makes sense to me. Plus, they can be solid trading chips at the deadline if the season goes south. None of this is advocating for long term deals, or huge overpays.
