RICHIE ONLY BATTED .256 AND HAD A LOT OF STRIKEOUTS HE WAS A GENIUS WHO UNDERSTOOD THE VALUE OF GETTING ON BASE BUT THE BASEBALL WORLD WAS NOT READY FOR RICHIE IF HE PLAYED TODAY HE WOULD GET HIS DUE RESPECT AND ALSO HIT 30+ HOMERS WITH THE JUICED BALL

Yeah, it is kind of odd.  But that career .372 SLG probably didn't help much.  Only around 100 OPS+ in his last two MLB seasons despite the high OBP. 

He split his next season between Toledo and Calgary, and then his age 30 season was in independent ball.

I knew what you were referencing.  I was making an attempt at humor.

Well,  Baseball is Life, right?

This is getting heavy............Back to Becker............

Becker threw batting practice once.........he was better than Drew VerHagen.

It sucks and then you die.  A perfect parallel to the 2019 Detroit Tiger season. 

Or is the 2019 Detroit Tiger season a perfect parallel to life?

Wait until next season after we trade Boyd and Goodrum in the offseason. I guess we can all hope for a .500 record by 2021? Not sure where any offense will come from though. It all seems so hopeless at times.    : (

And proceeded to set an American League record for losses in a season?

The Tigers got Roberto Novoa from Pittsburgh for Simon.  I'd guess Simon got the better end of that deal because he avoided the 2003 Tigers.

Something strange I've noticed through the years. Talking to people I know, or regulars on MTS, it's OK for longtime, diehard fans to say the Tigers suck. But if that comes from a stranger? Those be fighting words. Even if I secretly agree.

But Simon didn't hear about the trade until somebody told him about it.
