  1. This is something that I like to do every year. I know that it is not realistic but it can be an interesting way to pass the time. What if the MLB was looking to expand? Each team, provided they stick by past years, could protect 15 players from their organization. Those 15 players can not be pending free agents, but can be arbitrational eligible. The 15 players do NOT need to be on the 40 man roster. Prospects within their 1st two proseasons are exempt and not eligible for protection or selection. Have fun.
  2. I remember him being highly touted coming out of high school. I always felt that at some point he would be a Tiger.
  3. I can't recall who but Tampa also used this loophole in the past.
  4. Holaday is going to be traded, the only way that he isn't is if theres an injury to the McCannon or Salty. Holaday isn't young anymore, and doesnt platoon well with McCann like Salty does. Holaday's hot spring plays right into the Tigers hand for trading him as his value is surely not going to get higher. The return likely wont be much but it will be better than nothing. Houston makes sense as does Texas but Toronto has an out of options catcher available too. Miguel Gonzalez is likely the Mud Hens catcher this year.
  5. Thats part of what makes Doc Emerick, the great hockey broadcaster, such a joy to listen to on television is how he treats it like a radio broadcast.
  6. Doug Fister...1 year, 7 million to the Astros. I know that he struggled last year and his velocity was gosh awful but I think I would have preferred him and that deal over Pelfrey.
  7. I ended up Norris, Kyle Ryan, Rod Allen and Maybin. It did bother me to wait and have Ryan by himself at the end of the line.
  8. Billy McMillon was promoted to outfield coordinator for the Red Sox, Greg Norton was hired as hitting coordinator and Aqulliano Lopez is now a pitching coach for them in the Dominican Summer League. Just an update on some former Tigers.
  9. I wouldn't trade Fulmer for Bruce but I would certainly do something like Farmer, or Greene plus Moyà for Bruce.
  10. Would have thought that the organization would want to show Zimmerman off
  11. I've heard growing rumors of the Astros being a player for Cespedes. I would keep an eye on Jake Marisnick. He's young, an outstanding defender (statcast was glowing about him), with serviceable speed. He hasn't hit much in the Majors yet but did in the minors as a Marlins prospect. Yes, he may not sound any better than Collins or Maybin at this point but I think that there's more potential there than with what we have now. He is already scaled out in Houston and if they do add Cespedes his cost could be for a song. Just an off the wall suggestion.
  12. This is the hardest adopt a Tiger pick that I have ever had to make. There are some players that I did not expect to still be here and also younger players like Drew Verhagen (who I think will be a sleeper out of the pen this year). But now that I have given him his just due I will be selecting the best player available, the man who has friends with binoculars, Victor Martinez
  13. Who else is missing from the 40 man? Am I wrong in only seeing Kinsler?
