See that’s the beauty of the Avila regime. The major league team is awful and the overripe prospects in Toledo can’t help them.

Hill has 6 minor league seasons and Cameron has 5.  If they ain’t figured it out by now to earn a part season call up, what are we doing?

What is Paredes best possible scenario?  

Traded away.  Maybe for a ****ty 34 year old out of shape reliever coming off of a career season as a starter.

A bum with a whiffle ball bat living in a van down by the river strikes fancy at this point.

we already have nico goodrum on the team, we have the "bum with a whiffle ball bat" contingent covered.

i suppose the best case scenario for the tigers is the pitching continues to develop and then they spend big money on a couple bats next year.

who is a free agent?  i think baez, rizzo, and bryant are all free agents.

The Tigers will not dip into any big money free agents until Migggy's contract is up. Still, it would be nice to get some 8 - 12 mil players instead of 1 - 2 mil or in the case of Nunez the minimum.

Correa

Seager

Story

Conforto (surprised he is a free agent already)

are you willing to do 10 years and $320 million for correa, seager, or story?  cause that's what it will cost the tigers.

I remember when Pudge was a hero for signing with the worst team in baseball history.  He signed because he believed in the organization!

Remember when Gonzales signed with the Tigers. He didnt want to be here and was asked if he's buying a home close to Detroit. Gonzo said " no home.. apartment.. yes". In other words, you can get high priced free agents but will have to overpay because no one wants to come here besides for the money.

dan also said that in 380 games covering 2018,19 and 20 there was total of 3 games when a tiger batter never came to bat with a runner in scoring position and this year we are at 5 already !

Offense is way down this year league-wide, so not surprising that 2021 bad is much worse than 2018-2020 bad. Nonetheless, that stat is frightening.

Sure, it's not my money and I'd rather they take some chances than continue to watch a crap team with nobody worth watching.  They will probably overpay for Brandon Crawford and Eddie Rosario instead.

People (not necessarily you) are bringing up that offense is down league wide.  That’s not the problem with the Tigers.  The problem with the Tigers is that they are well below league average, and close to last if not exactly last in plenty of league offense metrics.

the sad part is that cameron and hill cant hit either.  neither can rogers.

they really dont have anybody ready to contribute.  

i would like to see paredes get a shot.

Parades is the one guy who could do something. He's 22 with a history of hitting well in the minors and against pitchers who were consistently much older than him. I think it's time to put him and 2B and roll with it.

I'm not making excuses for the Tigers. They are a dreadfully bad offensive team. My point was that being bad this year means a whole different level of bad than what we saw the previous three years, at least to this point in the season.

There's always easy opportunities to add hitting and get better.  They can sign a handful of second-tier FAs to 1 and 2 year contracts, still be way below the average team payroll, have a short/light load of future obligations, and be 10-15 wins better/more watchable in the meantime.  And maybe the youngsters would learn/grown/thrive more on a decent team where they play some/most of the time rather than a brutal team where they are constantly overmatched.

If they want to get better players and a league average or better salary structure, then great!  But all I am demanding at this point is that the team make definitive progress.  (a) Fire AA (b) hire a GM who will build a competitive D/D program (c) Spend a reasonable amount of money on good players to get better now (d) move towards winning now while building up the D/D system to make them more sustainable, and (e) NO MORE ******* TANKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
