  1. How do we know how Michigan is in circling the wagons? We have never really had a coach go 3-9 and 5-7 before. So this is uncharted waters. So to say you know a school like Michigan would never cut bait after two years is a little off base. We have never had a unsuccessful coach before! Not in my life time. I was born in 1973. Richrod is breaking a lot of trends.
  2. Really? Were going to beat ohio state is a long way from were going to do what we need to do to beat ohio state? I'm not sure how that is not nearly exactly the same! It is in a respectful way but he is saying they are going to do it. Were going to get the seniors to a bowl game? How do you spin that?
  3. Sounds like it to me anyway. Here is quote "Were going to get the seniors to a bowl game. Were going to come out and do what we need to do to beat Ohio State"
  4. 2006 you had a still productive Carlos guillen playing a good shortstop and was a masher at the plate. 2006 Guillen at short is much better then santigo\evertt. 06 you had a still powerful Maggs. That is a huge upgrade from the 09 version of maggs. I don't think it's a slump either. I think he is getting old and 25hrs and 40 doubles for maggs is no longer possible. You had a very hot craig Monroe on that 2006 team! Monroe completely blows away anything we have had in left this year. Monroe was amazing in 06. Polanco is older and not as good. I think Granderson is better now and inge is a wash. The huge upgrade is Caberara! 06 pudge is better than laird. Rotation. Verlander is better now. Bonderman huge ? Jackson or 06 Kenny Rogers? Rogers. Nate Robertson or Porcello? Porcello. Bullpen. 06 jones, 06 zoom, and Jamie Walker are better the 09 rodney, zoom and bobby seay. Overall 06 team is 15 wins better. But we are in a winnable division and anything can happen in the playoffs. Remember the 06 cards! beating us with jeff weaver and jeff suppan and Antony Reyes!.
  5. Hoffman and the Padres have broke off talks. I think this would be a great one-year deal for the all-time saves leader coming off a a season where he posted a 3.77 era. He wants 7 million and the padres offered 4. Great command and a great changeup. I know a lot of people will say he is done but did anyone in our bully last year come close to a 3.77era? I think at one year 7 mill it would be great.
  6. I like to see the Yankees before and after Pudge record. The Yankees went in the tank as soon as Pudge arrived. I don't think the Tigers or Yankees decline had anything to do with Pudge.
  7. He did it! 6.35 era to win the worst ERA in baseball. You need 162 innings to qualify for the award and amongst those 85 pitchers Nate was 85th with his 6.35 finishing well ahead Brandon Bracke's 6.05. Kenny Rogers made a run at it with his 5.70era being good enough for 82nd place. Justin Verlander made a bid for the top 10 finished just out with his 4.84 good for 74th place. Gararraga finished 28th with his 3.68. Well way to go Nate. Are the Tigers going to have a press conference to give nate his award?
  8. All appears lost for nate! He choked away his chance to win this thing last night! 6.08 for Nate and 6.53 for Silva! Kenny Rogers is now in the top 5 with his 5.45. Brian Bannister and Ian Snell round out the worst pitchers of the year top 5.
  9. 6.36 robertson 6.36 Silva! What a race with a month to go. Also entering the top ten of worst era's in the league was Kenny Rogers and his 5.25era! And Verlander's performance today could give him a shot at the top 10. His 4.74 is currently 77th best out of 90 pitchers.
  10. oh no nate with 0.2 innings of perfect relief! Era down to 6.03. Put him back in the rotation!
  11. Forget Maggs and Polanco in the batting title. The other race that is heating up is Nate Roberston vs Carlos Silva for worst era in the league among starting pitchers. Right now Silva has the upper hand at 6.36 vs nate's 6.09. To qualify for the era title you have to have average 1 inning pitched per game your team has played. Under those rules 90 pitchers qualify and nate comes in at 89th. Nate was also battling for the hits allowed title with Livan Herndez leading the way with 199 and nate right on his tale at 195! Of course his switch to the bullpen is likely to end this goal. Also up in flames is the ER title which nate was leading 101 to 99 over Silva. Well we'll see if Nate can go to the bullpen and chase down Silva and win this thing and claim the prize! The worst pitcher in baseball!
  12. Don't look now but were just 4 games up on the Royals and Indians! Don't worry Garcia and Dontrelle will be here in September to prevent that from happening.!
  13. What do you want. The Yanks gave up their set up a guy with a 3.65era for a 36 year old catcher with about 3hr and 40 rbi's. When does a team in the pennant race give up their set up guy for a 36 year old catcher? Try never. Good deal DD.
  14. Farnsworth 44innings 43 K's 3.65era. Last 10 innings 0 runs 2 hits. I love this trade. Pudge was not as needed as Farnsworth.
  15. I have a hard time sitting Joyce vs Right handed pitching. A thames/ Joyce platoon seems the like the best thing to do with Maggs back.
