  1. So now it’s the Tigers and the Cruzer family we are rooting for. Speedy recovery.
  2. I bet their manager got an earful from AL
  3. He’s the Gardenier of GM’s and now we need the Hinch. Having said that he did hire AJ, hit huge on Badoo and drafted well last year. If he hits on Jobe and free agency he will be here to stay for the duration.
  4. I was hoping Norris would get the start but I guess Alexander is under team control for many years so they are going with him.
  5. Watching on tv I gotta say the sparse crowd is disappointing after waiting 5 days for baseball. Hope it was connected to the rainout etc. Or maybe folks don't want to pay full price for 7 innings ?

  7. I hope Willie is playing on the grass in Toledo
  8. Right now he is the number 3 pick in the 2021 draft and soon to be multi millionaire.
  9. Sounds Great. Now call Al and Hinch and give it to them straight.And I hope they Thank You.
  10. No wonder searching "sports" was fruitless Thanks
  11. I hope Dingler can rebound as we are counting on him. As for Rogers/Haase I still think that could be a mirage but I sure hope not.
  12. What is Sportz name on Twitter. I can't find him ?
  13. As another old guy I am encouraged by the fact that if Jobe is who Al thinks he is then he will move up very quickly. I have already heard as early as 2023 and thats a college player timeline. And besides doesn't everyone live to 100 these days ?
  14. Thanks for all the posters answering my question. I feel much better knowing form you folks that the Tigers preferred Jobe over Mayer. I say the pre draft "Agreement" on Twitter BTW which made me wonder if they guessed wrong on Mayer not falling but I agree they probably knew it was very possible and just preferred the upside of Jobe.
  15. The question remains unanswered is did Detroit select Jobe because they think he is better than Mayer or did they get burned when Mayer was still available and had to keep their word/deal. What do you folks think ?
  16. I have been complaining that Al lacks creativity but this was creative and bold. Jobe does have the highest ceiling in this draft. I just hope the Tigers felt Jobe was better or equal to Mayer before they made the agreement that they had to keep or incur the wrath of all agents. I’m thinking they knew Mayer could fall to them but liked Jobe better or as much And if Al is correct he will be in the show by 2024.
  17. Pitchers...can't live with them and can't live without them
  18. Also as I spend way too much time on this draft Do teams ever "over scout" a player as a strategy of misdirection to get other teams off who they really like ?
