2019 REGULAR SEASON DISCUSSION THREAD

Recommended Posts

If Manning and Mize (and maybe Perez, Faedo, Burrows or Funkhouser) remain healthy and continue to pitch well, Det keeps Boyd and Turnbull, some of W Castro,  Daz, Rogers etc improve and can contribute in the bigs, and Chris I becomes willing to add bats via FA then perhaps I could see them contending in 2021. The stars would all have to align and imho there is maybe a 5% chance that happens by then.

2021?  If Mize regains his health and Manning develops alongside him and we get a decent FA bat or three ...maybe we eek out 80-85 or so wins...is that contending?

The 2021 Tigers will be better than people think

I’m leaning toward the other way around. My confidence in Avila is waining...

It is crucial we get some hitting talent out of Boyd, Greene, and Nick for that to happen.

And Reyes and DeLaCruz on the horizon. Get more of these guys.

They need a hitting coach to teach them how to have a .400 BABIP.

Ausin Jackson for hitting coach.

Is this rock bottom?  I hope it is.  The mood here has ever been so disillusioned in my experience.

Smoked some of that good stuff last night. But even with that clouded judgement I don't see a path for contention by 2021.

PM me next time you wanna smoke.

His BABIP has been up there all season.

Yeah, and Galarraga had BABIP luck as a pitcher for a full season.  It doesn't mean or portend anything other than sometimes random variation can make an otherwise marginal player in to a solidly good one.

Alternately, there really isn't that much separating 25th percentile to 75th percentile.

The mood here sucks and I am a proud contributor.

Hackosky sure does love congratulating players on the birth of their child.
