I like Jim a lot.  Seems like a sweet guy.  I just don’t want him on my radio calling Tiger games.

I predict the Tigers will buck conventional wisdom and utilize performance enhancing packs to charge towards the pennant and World Series.

You know what they say: if Miss World Series smokes, she pokes.

BOLD PREDICTION:

Casey Mize out for Tommy John surgery by May

Tarik Skubal gets in first base collision  and separates pitching shoulder.  Misses rest of season

Matt Manning quits baseball to join Elon Musk Mars expedition

Miguel Cabrera is in great shape at Spring Training (oh wait, already happened,  sorry)

Matthew Boyd actually pitches a game where he does not give up a home run

Willi Castro & Harold Castro switch jerseys as a joke and are suspended for the season by MLB

Zach Short punches Giancarlo Stanton after he calls him "Shortie" and breaks his hand,  Stanton misses the rest of the season too, and Yankee fans complain. 

Michael Fulmer leads team in wins with 7

33 different pitchers start a game for the Tigers in 2021 including 9 guys who haven't thrown a MLB pitch since 2018

AJ Hinch begs team to steal signs, but they somehow mess it up

49-113

Al Avila gets contract extension.

Fox Sports Detroit finally gets back on  You Tube TV for the 2022 season. 

Players go on strike for all of  2022 

Baseball returns in 2023 - nobody under 60 cares. 

Ads on jerseys (limit to 4 advertisers per team)

4 teams fold by 2025.

False.  I know what game you are referring to, but it gets rained out in the 4th before it becomes an official game.

(apologies for politics intrusion)

Jacoby Jones insists that they read aloud the entire MLB rule book before they can take the field for every game. 

His teammates complain but he then insists they do it in every primary language of everyone on the 26 man roster.  So, they have an English language reading, a Spanish language reading, and he insists they do a version in gullah geetchee for Akil Baddoo.  Despite Baddoo's protestations that he is from Maryland not the coastal areas of Georgia and South Carolina.  Later we find out it was just Jacoby's way of making sure they cut Baddoo so he could save his own roster spot.

Justin Verlander will eventually get Tommy John Surgery. 

Oh sorry, that was an old prediction, not a bold prediction.  My bad.

Booms:

Boyd will cut way down on his home runs and get his ERA under 4.00 in 180 innings.

Candelario shows that last season was no fluke and posts a .850 OPS for a full season.  

Skubal finishes in top three in Rookie of Year voting with 3.75 ERA and 10.5 K/9 before getting shut down at his innings limit in August.  

Busts:

Mize get lots of K's and shows flashes of brilliance, but is hit hard and needs to go to Toledo to works things out.  

Farmer will be awful and won't make it through May.

Goodrum won't last much longer than Farmer.

Baddoo leads the league in every offensive category....but doesn't win the MVP due to the rest of the team being garbage.

It’s more likely they acquire a Guppy than Trout.

A (Anthony) Bass is a slight possibility.

Baddoo hits terribly and gets sent back to Minnesota per rule 5 draft rules.

Cabrera gets injured while playing 1B and is sidelined for over 2 months.

Isaac Paredes takes Cabrera's roster spot and hits surprisingly well.

Greg Soto gets 30 saves. 

Matt Manning pitches more Major League innings than Casey Mize.

The Tigers have a winning percentage of over .400 for the first time since 2016.  

Edited by bobrob2004
Apparently there are 2 "d"s in Baddoo.

paredes hits .290...with a .315 obp and .350 slg.

candelario hits .300 and is traded at the deadline for a lefty reliever who throws 100 mph but has control concerns and a 19 year old dominican shortstop who lynn henning tells us is the real star of the deal and is on everyone's radar as a future derek jeter.

boyd is not traded for gleybar torres.  again.

fulmer becomes the closer by the end of the year.

norris is the team's best starter, which says more about the team's starters than norris.  he is traded to the phillies at the deadline for someone who throws really hard and someone who runs really fast.  

mize looks great as a starter....once he's back in toledo but...

manning dazzles in his september call up.  mize returns in september and looks really good too (but doesnt "dazzle"!).

tigers win 69 games.  continuing the worst stretch of baseball in the franchise's history.  avila is given a contract extension for making so much progress ("this team won 47 games two years ago, that's a 22 win improvement" exclaims a happy chris illitch at the press conference.)

Casey Mize is the Tigers best starter this year and has an era around 3.75.

Torkelson struggles to start the year in A ball and everyone panics.

The starting pitching overall is around league average.

The bullpen is horrible, aside from Norris.

Cabrera is so bad he is told he won't be back next year.

Final record 71-91.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say this could never, ever, ever, EVER happen.

Casey Mize will have season-ending SLAP repair, Tarik Skubal and Matt Manning will struggle all year, Joey Wentz will become the #1 pitching prospect with a strong debut once he does toe the rubber at Comerica, Spencer Torkelson will be called up in April after his service time crosses the line, and Riley Greene will start the season in Lakeland and top out at Erie.

Welp, 0 for 1.5 already.
