    TheeTFD, you missed the boat once again. Nemo actually thought that was Tram's daughter.

    Bout ready to get this thing started! Just watched a video in a fluff piece with the Tigers at Spring training and was some BP by VMart. Looks like a legend in there and the sound of the bat is distinctive.

    Rondon tossing at 100+. Leyland's 50th year of spring training!!!

    Tigers' Alex Avila, after bullpen session: Bruce Rondon pitching arsenal 'as advertised' | Detroit Tigers | Detroit Free Press | freep.com

    VMart
    Castellanos
    Hunter
    Rondon

    Full years from:
    Sanchez
    Garcia (maybe)

    Gone are some of the whipping boys/ escape goats from the past years.

    Definitely the highest expectations for the team ever. Leyland's experience, likability, and laid back nature/ routines should hopefully take the edge off. Leadership from within should be about as good as it gets too. All the stars are intense, take pride in their craft, and seem like exceptionally decent teammates.

    So, you are saying it's a rebuilding year?

    He should probably lock in now then while his boss is still alive.

    I thought that $80M deal was sweet. He was already the best pitcher then. At least he's not asking for $300M !

    If we pay him 200 million, we'll only be able to afford Jake Wood and John Wockenfuss to play with him.

    I had been wondering:


    L akeland, Fla. — We learned a couple of things Monday as the Tigers dealt with a closer crisis they might want to resolve before spring camp adjourns in 25 days.
    Development No. 1: The Tigers could, in a wild scenario, decide a new and improved Rick Porcello is at least worth discussing as a ninth-inning choice now that rookie Bruce Rondon's candidacy has been wounded, perhaps fatally, by a string of ugly outings.
    "We'll be very thorough in looking at our options," said Jim Leyland, the Tigers manager, who with his boss, Dave Dombrowski, has watched as Rondon's mishaps have jolted an otherwise peaceful camp.
    Development No. 2: Jose Valverde and his agent, Scott Boras, are open to signing a one-year contract if the Tigers are interested.
    "Jose Valverde would be thrilled to pitch for the Tigers on a one-year deal," Boras said during a Monday telephone conversation.
    That's news when it has been generally assumed Boras-Valverde wanted a multiple-year package for a free-agent reliever who this month turns 35. The Tigers, though, appear not to be as concerned about money as with Valverde's skills following a so-so 2012 season and multiple playoff disasters that made his return to Detroit improbable, if not an absurdity.
    Porcello was Monday's big story for assorted reasons.
    He was being scouted heavily during the Tigers-Astros game at Marchant Stadium, an 8-5 Detroit victory during which Porcello threw four blue-ribbon innings.
    Porcello is a hot ticket for teams hungry for an extra starter the Tigers believe they can afford to trade.

    I watched that game. He looked great.

    My vote would be to just keep him around. We'd increase the odds having a great 5th starter if we let Smyly and Porcello duke it out. Having a pitcher like in the pen would be great for long relief and also for injury insurance.

    Trade Porcello for someone who can be a closer.....
