Last play by Niko was much trickier than it looked because the 2b bag was in the way. He either had to veer around or make the throw while stepping on the base. He did the latter but either choice could have caused another player to sail the throw. Still don't think he has near the range to hold down an MLB SS gig, but he's a talented ball player for sure.

He'd be most welcome on every roster in the majors.

Nike does have some skills.  He is not great, but he can be serviceable at SS, and his versatility is good to be able to play all over the field.  He is athletic, he has some speed, and a little power.

Now if he could get his swing back he could be a decent player on a decent team

The Tigers bats have gone back into sleep mode after the eruption of 7 runs.  Most teams erupt for 12-15 runs, the Tigers erupt for 5 (3 of them gift wrapped) to 7 runs.

With the positional versatility and some stick he'd be pretty valuable on a contender, especially in the NL.

I am really glad that I’ve given up and no longer care otherwise this game would bother me.

An actual genuine friend in town called me and we had a wonderful talk for 35 minutes. We established our superiority over almost  everyone else in the world we dislike, and I was able to miss this entire avalanche of sadness that just occurred. 

Genuine human contact. Even if over the phone, is the real thing.

Niko's value to a contender is as a versatile bench player/spot starter and pinch hitter for the pitcher. He's a starter only for second division teams. If it were just him in a trade, we wouldn't net any prospect who would help us in the future, so I think we'd be trading him just to get rid of him. He might net the best yield as a throw in if we send Boyd or Greene to the NL.

Just as well.  He is a candidate to implode in the 2nd half.  Brutal BB/K ratio.

Niko would have been a nice guy have on the 2011-2014 Tigers.

I would rather have seen equivalent Niko up at the plate with two out in the ninth against the Orioles in 2014 than Hernan Perez.

Yes, he would have been.  Those teams had terrible benches and they had no minor league depth.  So, every time there was an injury or two, things would unravel.

I was looking for good news, so I checked the standings to see how bad the Angels were doing and they’re 38-37. No go there.

Most teams erupt for 12 -15 runs?  How often?

...perhaps as often (maybe) as the Tigers erupt for 7 runs?

The tigers have a bad offense this year.

And pitching. And defense. And coaching. And front office. And ownership. 

I agree.

I looked it up, 93 times teams have scored 12 or more so far this year.

For 10 or more, it has been 206 times so far (twice by the Tigers, once with 10, and once with 11)
