You want “weepy,” listen to ‘The Road is my Only True Friend’ off the recording ‘Southern Blood’ released after Gregg’s death. The first several times I heard that song I made sure no one was around. Yes, weepy.

IF the Tigers are to make a run this year their fans must toughen up.  This weepy stuff is not GardyGritty.

This is pretty interesting. 

“I’ve been asked that question: ‘What’s your pitching philosophy?’” Johnson said. “Well, I’ve got one for Mike Pineda. I’ve got a completely different one for Martin Perez or Kyle Gibson or Jake Odorizzi. Because their bodies work different, their stuff plays different, they need different things in the training room. Some guys need more momentum; some guys don’t need as much momentum. Some guys throw across their body because they’ve got loose hips, so you may not change that guy. But another guy who throws across his body, because he’s got tight hips, you’ve got to change him.”

How do you keep that Magill guy from sniffing his own armpits?

Another song in this genre is Ian Hunter's tribute to Mick Ronson - "Michael Picasso" - if you've never heard it, it's worth a listen.

Yet he still sucks.

Never understood the hate for McCann on this board.

He cant hit RHP, and it should have been obvious 5 years ago.

So was it his fault the Tigers signed him? As I recall he and his wife were pro community and participated in Tiger outreach stuff. I see Boyd in the same way I think, people willing to help others if they are able.

May be because he's a rare nonpitcher who can throw a baseball harder than he can hit one.

His wealthy father didn't treat the Adduci family with respect.

As far as baseball at the MLB level is concerned, McCann sucks.

This is the 11th game of the season. We have three new starters. Way early to draw any conclusions here. I am a big Greiner fan and in case you missed it, John Hicks is my hero.

When I say he sucks, I am referring to his ability to play MLB.

I'm not speaking to his quality of character.

And, no, I don't 'blame' him for the Tigers foolishly thinking he could be a viable everyday catcher.

That stated, he sucks as a player, it's my bit, so he sucks.

Personally, I think the Tigers could use more rednecks from Texas. Go America, the baby Jesus, and Trump! McCann/Gose 2020.

Are you sure we don't need more pompous scolds educating the masses on how stupid, shiftless and racist they are?
