  1. ??? Ryan and Strotman slot at 6 and 13 in the Twins organization prospect list.
  2. TB is both buying and selling; would be nice to have faith in the Tigers front office to do something like that correctly
  3. if no one else really wants him, what's the price for Trevor Story?
  4. frenzy https://www.mlb.com/news/mlb-executives-expectations-for-the-2021-trade-deadline
  5. i had to look that up too. An unearned run is any run that scored because of an error or a passed ball. Oftentimes, it is the judgment of the official scorer as to whether a specific run would've scored without the defensive mishap. The purpose of the unearned run is to distinguish which runs a pitcher is at fault for allowing.
  6. Al has made a lot of mistakes, but he sure got this one right
  7. 4, 5, 6, 8 have signed underslot, leaving cash for Maddden and Pacheco
  8. yeah, it all falls to Avila, the good and the bad. LOTS OF BAD on his ledger, but recently, the good has far outstripped the bad.
  9. He also had that same guy at 23 on his board
  10. Jose De La Cruz getting his swing back in the FCL, 4-5, 2 HR
  11. Athletic article ($) about Cisnero, Soto and Schoop. https://theathletic.com/2707629/2021/07/15/tigers-trade-deadline-preview-will-they-part-with-gregory-soto-which-teams-are-potential-suitors/ they should be actively looking to move Cisnero. He is 32, with 2.5 years of control left.

  13. Looks like Will Vest is probably coming back
  14. 11th round is when teams will start grabbing some of them
  15. FG: Detroit Tigers Pick Rank FV Name Position Age School Strengths 3 8 45+ Jackson Jobe RHP 18.9 Heritage Hall School (OK) Elite curveball, mid-90s gas 32 12 45 Ty Madden RHP 21.4 Texas Above-avg fastball/slider KG: Detroit used to be easy to project in the draft: just take the kid who throws hard. They returned to their old ways on Sunday by taking a pair of arms who can consistently get into the upper 90s. Jobe has the best raw stuff in the draft, but it was still a bit of a surprise to see them stick with him when Marcelo Mayer was still on the board. I’m the first to admit that I’m a bigger fan of Madden than much of the industry, but he was still seen as likely to go in the teens, and to grab him in the comp round is absolute highway robbery. After using all six of their 2020 draft picks on position players, the Tigers quickly found a way to balance that on Sunday. EL: It might feel rough for Tigers fans that Marcelo Mayer was sitting there and Detroit took a high school righty third overall instead, but the Tigers honored a verbal agreement here and the cosmic reward for that decision appears to be Ty Madden, who they may not have been able to pay if not for likely cutting a deal at three. I think Tigers pitching dev is actually pretty good, but the track record of high schoolers who are already throwing this hard at the time of draft is really scary.
  16. if Jobe signs for $5m, that gives them a lot of walking around money for 32, 39 or elsewhere. as always the question is, who is the person making the decision
  17. Candelario value is tied to playing third his defense at 1st stinks and his bat is too light there
