That is welcome news indeed. Even the 67 some days until the opener doesn't seem so far away.

In the Florida Souther game no Mocs have ever been seriously injured. I'd like to see that change.

I'm predicting a Mike Aviles take out slide

I have not been missing baseball much at all this off-season. Last season was such a downer.

But now I can't wait.

I gotta tell you, as a fan who only really closely follows the Lions and the Tigers, Jan. and Feb. pretty much sucks.

The slight thing that makes it easier now vs. say... 10 years ago:

1.) More media online... easier to get information about what's going on if you want it.

2.) Tiger Woods is less of a sports figure that he used to be so searching 'Tigers' on line produces fewer false hits!

3 Days....The Start

It will be getting warm soon in Michigan!

2016 Tigers? If we get any power numbers with a high BA from 3rd base and a SS with a very high OBP, we could have an incredible offense.

Even if just 1 of the 3 positions produce offensively (3rd-SS-CF) the Tigers should have a top 5 offense, with health.

SP? Well, it's just several big Question Marks.

Verlander? I would bet he'll be back to a MLB ace.

Sanchez? How many months can he remain healthy? And was it arm problems causing him to give up so many home runs?

Zimmermann? I've haven't watched him very much but I hope the change of leagues can benefit him, even though many NL pitchers struggle at times from better AL line-ups.

We then need 2 of Greene, Norris, Boyd, Pelfrey or a darkhorse. A little depth here in case of struggles or injury. I'm not too worried about this part of the team.

BP? A nice offseason revamp but they haven't produced yet. And this will probably decide many of the close games, as the BP usually does. It could be a strength or a weakness. And Brad is going to have to learn how to use the BP. Pitchers producing would help but he needs to use the best pitcher for each situation and put them in the best position to excel.

The bench? The Tigers have most positions locked up. CF is our only possible platoon position. Maybin and Gose in CF? Aviles as our back-up OF and infielder? Maybe he'll take Romine's job. Maybe even a pretty nice bench, speed, power and most positions covered.

Starting hot is still the goal, even though they had a nice start last season, even if not for too long. But if the Tigers start out with a bad record, Brad may be replaced. It sure is nice having Tram around...

So...just to clarify...

Pitchers and catchers have their first workout on Friday the 19th (2 days from now).

BUT

Pitchers and catchers have to report on Thursday the 18th (tomorrow), correct?

I assume that is why the Tigers' facebook countdown says 1 day today while we are saying 2 days. At this point, I'm ready to celebrate pitchers and catchers just showing up!

2 months until Deran moves to Los Angeles.

Moving to the land of smog and bad traffic?
