  1. I'm willing to go with the AJax at leadoff thing for a while. If he is doing it in front of Kinsler/Cabrera/VMart, he's going to see a lot of fastballs and less breaking stuff. I feel like when AJax is hitting well, the team benefits more from that than with Rajai hitting well, so I am fine with it.
  2. It’s Time to Trade Troy Tulowitzki | FanGraphs Baseball Trade all the prospects for him!
  3. Or you can be a douchebaggy dickhole who adds nothing to the conversation. That works too. Thanks for obviously not reading anything but the part you wanted to criticize of my post. I apologize for apparently not putting enough qualifiers in my post to make it pure speculation.
  4. They are a talented team for the most part but don't have any kind of ace to their pitching staff. Scherzer is familiar with the organization and maybe that is a team he would sign a long-term deal with and set them up for future success.
  5. Sorry for perhaps starting this a little early. It's just one of my favorite threads to check in on during the month of July. Here is all I have seen, courtesy of MLBTR: Of course, that's not shocking to anyone. Not sure what we could possibly expect of DD come the trade deadline. I speculated in another thread that I could see DD pulling the trigger on a Max Scherzer trade and get a decent haul. I could picture a Chris Owings/Josh Collmenter-type trade for Scherzer if the DBacks were willing to do so. It's one of those rare situations where you would have a team in the hunt for the playoffs trade away a major contributing piece, so I'm not sure how that would work in terms of suitors. Lesser teams probably aren't going to want to take him on with not much chance at re-signing him, and you're not going to get much for him from trading him to a contender, I don't think, unless it's for another major contributor who is also going to be a FA in the off-season that you might think could re-sign with the Tigers. Of course, I also think that a potential Max trade would be contingent on Verlander returning to form, because I don't think they'll trade Max if all they have after him is Anibal as a reliable starter.
  6. Tigers so far having the worst three groups of at-bats I've seen in a while. Good lawd.
  7. Porcello announced as a "final vote" candidate for the AL. To be unbiased, though, he would be my 4th/5th choice of the five. Going up against Kuechel, Kluber, Richards and Sale. I would go Sale, Richards, Kuechel, Kluber/Porcello.
  8. I can actually see something like this happening. I think DD will trade Scherzer. I don't know for who, but I think he'll get dealt and we will like the return. Starting staff will obviously take a hit, but I think the return will be something like a solid SS and a serviceable 4/5 SP (Chris Owings/Josh Collmenter?)
  9. When I have complaints like this, I always think about the people who are less fortunate. There are many people out there who are blind or hard of seeing who "watch" the broadcasts on TV and rely on Rod/Mario for the most detail possible, and I can only imagine how annoying it would be to be one of those people and just not hear what's going on at all times.
  10. I have a favor to ask. Does anyone on this board ever attend any GCL Tigers games? As part of my job, we are hoping to do an update on all of our professional players in affiliated ball this year, but it seems like pickings are thin for action shots of any GCL teams. Would anyone who is near the area be able to stop by and take an action shot of Giancarlo Brugnoni for me? We would give credit to whoever needed it on our website at gvsulakers.com. Thanks if anyone could help!
  11. Ian Darke mentioned during yesterday's game that Howard was calling it quits (for USMNT play, at least) following the World Cup. Is that correct? From what I have been told by my more soccer-following friends, Guzan is nearly every bit as good of Howard. As one put it, "If Howard is a 10, Guzan is a 9" so it seems like goal-keeper is all Guzan's for 2018, but he's only five years younger than Howard so I'm assuming he'll only have this next cycle in him.
  12. I vehemently disagree that Kyle Quincey is better than Kindl or Lashoff. Quincey is, IMO, by far the worst d-man on the team and it's not even close. Kindl and Lashoff are bad in their own right, but they don't hold a candle to Quincey's atrocious play.
  13. Has there ever been an off-speed pitch or breaking ball that went for a hit that Rod Allen didn't believe was "hanging"? Every single time a change-up/slider/curve ball gets hit, Rod believes it was hanging, even if it's nearly in the dirt. One of my biggest pet peeves when listening to him. Even if it's Miguel Cabrera lunging over the plate hitting a slider nearly in the dirt out to right field, Rod will say it was hanging or "spinning".
  14. Easily - You could get better production out of Sproul, Ouellet or Marchenko and let Quincey go get over-paid by someone else and pick up an extra two wins when you face whatever team he is on. On the bright side - if the Wings keep striking out on FA's, maybe they'll give Mantha a shot.
