Many people: MLB draft 2017: Here’s everyone that the Tigers drafted
I'll probably stay up until the Tigers are down 5 runs.....so, I'll watch the first 2 innings...
The Sanchez move smacks of desperation. Boyd hasn't worked out so far, and Farmer has been sent down again. Farmer has been sent down and called up so many times, I-75 should be named after him.
I thought I remember seeing a new sign going up recently....
I usually blame Jim Leyland, but I would be fine with letting Ausmus go. He's depressing even me.
There is now exactly 1 team in the american league with more losses than us (oakland with 2 more losses). Start working the phones Mr Avila.
The optimist in me says "....and we are still only 3 games out of the final playoff spot with 93 games left to be played...."
Sanchez looked OK last night. Control was off, but he made big pitches when he needed. There was the one mistake he left over the plate, but it was encouraging overall. He had decent movement. What was not encouraging was the Tigers' offense and bullpen. Cabrera continues to concern me. His Ks are up this season and his slugging and OPS are pretty much as low as they have ever been in his career. He was a non-factor last night. I would be surprised if he reaches his numbers from last season. If he's hurting, he should sit out.
Let's hope Miggy is hurting because we have him under contract for $30 million a year for the next 6 years.
Cabrera looks to the sky every day and says, "Gracias, Senor I."
He should be spending his golden years on the yankees.
What foolish GM signed him up until he is 40 years old??
Another 1 run loss....another bull pen loss, another weak hitting loss. Zimmerman can't get a break with the anemic Tiger bats. Now 6 games under .500 and losers of 9 out of their last 12....this team is need of a good reliever, a clutch hitter and a new manager.
Might have been more about Illitch than Dombrowski.
They are starting to look like sellers at trade deadline time.
I believe he works for the Red Sox now....
There could be technical financial reasons for doing so. Sounds like it might be easier to find a new team. Knowing nothing about baseball business matters, this may be the right answer. What doesn't matter is why a guy is paid so much for so long. What really matters is WHY he isn't playing well. There is no good price for poor performance at the elite level of any sport. If Miggy was paid half as much for half as long, would that make anyone feel better about how he is playing?
It wouldn't make me feel any better.
I want 90-95 win seasons by the time I retire. I don't want to cheer a stinky team during pre-season down in Lakeland.
