Thanks for playing dj hutch.    Painful morning and I need to get my mind off the pain...............so I'll take my shot at it.  

3 Burning Questions for the Tigers this offseason
1. Just how important is cutting payroll?   - It feels like it's the only motivation right now and it scares me a little.
2. What is the health of the Two Best Players?    A healthy Miguel Cabrera could still be a plus as a hitter or trade chip.  Michael Fulmer's injury is hard to call but at least not structural.
3.  Is this team for sale?   It kind of falls in with the payroll question.   I know Chris says it's not for sale but I don't think they would let us know if it was and I don't think they'd put ads in the trades.     We know it was a toy for Mike but I have always had the feeling the rest of the family doesn't care for the Tigers all that much.   

3 moves you expect them to make
1. Releasing or Trading Ian Kinsler
2. Outright releasing Victor Martinez
3.  Sign one free agent starting pitcher (although I am not sure they will do that with this obsession over the payroll)

3 (realistic) moves you'd like them to make
I really can't answer this right now, not know just how low they want their payroll.  I'd like them to at least try to win 70 games this season and that would probably require signing some every day guys.    Can't make room for Romine or Presley, what do we expect.

3 (realistic) free agents/trade targets for the offseason
1. Chris Tillman -  Has something to prove on a one year deal pitches well at Comerica
2. Jarrod Dyson - Collns, Presley and Adduci gone, they will need another OF.  Tough to assume Gerber is ready and Jason Krizan feels like Tyler Collins 2.0
3. Howie Kendrick - Romine is gone and If they trade Kinsler they'll need a body and he could be a guy that plays everyday and maybe brings a decent prospect at the deadline

3 players (ML level) that intrigue you the most
1. Nick Castellanos
2. James McCann
3. Mikie Mahtook

All three of these guys could be good players if they give us a full season of production

3 minor leaguers with almost no shot at coming up in 2018  that intrigue you
1. Matt Manning
2. Franklin Perez
3. Beau Burrows

This is the future, it hangs on the arms of these three and Alex Faedo and I didn't include him because I think we'll see him with the Tigers at some point this year, even if it's only in September.   

3 reasons you think the Tigers could finish near or even above .500
1.  Miguel Cabrera is 75% of a normal Miguel season
2.  Daniel Norris & Jordan Zimmerman find it and stay healthy
3.  Mikie Mahtook and Nick Castellanos become the well-rounded players they should be.  Mahtook could be really good if he gets it together.

3 reasons why this team will be brutally bad
1.  The combo Buck Farmer, Chad Bell, Drew VerHagen start more than 20% of the games
2.  They make absolutely no attempt at a decent free agent and go into the season with a lineup that will make you think of the Randy Smith Days
3.   Miguel continues his rapid decline and they keep Victor Martinez.  

3 albums you can listen to front to back
1. Purple Rain - Prince  (1984)
2. Achtung Baby - U2  (1991)
3. Ben Folds Five - Ben Folds Five (1995)

3 movies you can't shut off 
1. The Shawshank Redemption (hasn't been on AMC in two months, what's wrong?)
2.  Goodfellas
3.  Dumb & Dumber  - Sometimes I just need something silly 
(and about 40 others)
