I still don't know who Fergie and Josh are.  I realize that I am not a go-to guy on pop culture but I am not totally oblivious - for example, there is a question that I have been going back and forth on in my mind all summer, before recently I finally reached a decision.  The question was "is the dance-floor humping in Despacito explicit enough?" and the answer is "no".  But Fergie?  No idea.

Isn't Fergie the duchess of York?

What is a duchess?

Why did duchesses (and dukes) not make it into a deck of playing cards, but jokers did?

Fergie is that woman in the black eyed peas. Josh is some handsome actor. 

I don’t know what they are in the news for right now.

Tigers Announce Scouting and Analytics Staff Additions to Baseball Operations Department

an hour ago
Press Release | an hour ago

DETROIT - The Tigers today announced several staff additions to the club's baseball operations department.

The Tigers have hired Jim Elliott, Paul Mirocke and Don Kelly as Major League Scouts. The organization has also expanded its analytics department by hiring Danny Vargovick, Drew Jordan and Shane Piesik as Analysts in Baseball Operations. In addition, Sam Menzin, who previously served as Director of Baseball Operations, will now assume the role of Director of Baseball Operations and Professional Scouting. Also, Jeff Weatherby has moved from Major League Scouting to International Scouting.

"Today's announcement is another step in the building of our infrastructure within baseball operations," said Al Avila, Tigers Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations and General Manager. "Growth in the analytics area is key in our goal of making sound, informed baseball decisions both when evaluating players, and in providing data to the big league players, manager and his coaching staff. The additions in scouting are important for us in our search for impact type players to bring into our organization."

Elliott joins the Tigers organization after spending the previous seven seasons as a Professional Scout in the San Diego Padres organization. Prior to his time with the Padres, Elliott spent 12 years as a Scout with the MLB Scouting Bureau.

Mirocke spent the 2017 season as a scout in the Milwaukee Brewers organization and had responsibilities with professional, amateur and international scouting. Before joining the Brewers, Mirocke spent 26 years at the MLB Scouting Bureau, including the final 14 as Professional Scouting Coordinator.

After playing nine seasons in the Major Leagues, including six with the Tigers, Kelly joined the Tigers front office prior to the 2017 season, working in both Player Development and Scouting. Kelly will transition into a full-time Major League Scout role moving forward with the organization.

Avila keeps trumpeting the Tigers dedication to a robust analytics department. I wonder if he had been badgering DD for years to ramp up the Tigers analytics or if he only recently found the religion.

She might be, I'm not sure.  All I remember about that Fergie is that she had an enormous rear end.  But you're asking the wrong guy though - if you want to get the latest details about the royal family, never ask a Canadian or an Australian.

I will pray for them. I am tired of praying for hurricane and earthquake victims. It’s getting old.

I think she sucked on someone's toes or was getting them sucked and the paparazzi captured that. But then, she's British, who doesn't over there.

It is a good way to separate yourself from Dombrowski and blaze your own trail. But David Chadd is still here even after many draft failures.

I just don’t believe that David chadd was in the room making choices on his own. I think the picks or draft strategy are still up to the GM. 

The possibility exists that Davis chadd is good at what he does, but DD made his own calls. And we also shouldn’t forget that we went many years without a first round pick.

That went south quickly.  Gets the first two outs, then a homerun is called back as a double. Then two real homeruns and four runs in just moments.  This would be like doing lines of Drano if it weren’t for the fact that I no longer care.

I just want to point out Target field hosted a football game a week ago and their grass doesn't look like ****. Meanwhile someone sneezes on ours and a third turns brown and has more patches than my balding head.
