    Still recovering from my surgery.
    Cuts into my time on PF.
    I still want to issue some late "likes" once I feel better.
    Got a lot of reading to ketchup on.

    Posting a new thread was easy...thanks.

    Just need to make the playoffs and anything can happen. We will again be loaded with aging talent and will likely experience major "old man" type injuries. We will be slow, have poor defense, and suffer from lack of depth in the pen.

    But on the plus side, we also have a great mix of veterans and youth in our starting pitching group that could be one of the best in the league if JV and Zimmerman resume their prior forms.

    While I would have definitely blown this team up at the last trade deadline, I'm happy to see them give it another go.

    What we need is for this team simply to meet expectations.

    What do they say in AA? Something like "expectations are premeditated resentments". I like that.

    We need an infusion of youth and speed....just a couple of players....otherwise, the core is solid....on paper....

    Can't speak to the Tigers side of the sports empire, but have to think the RedWings will be staying with the family long term or I doubt Gore would have agreed to move downtown with the possible unknown of a new owner buying the team/stadium.
