    Yea, I get that but why risk it when we are so desperate for talent. Pittsburg, Miami, etc.. are other teams that might take a chance so there are other low end teams like us that might steal them. ...

    Austin Martin is by far my favorite but I don't mind taking a pitcher if they are the best player available at #1. As we get closer to the draft, I may change my mind to a pitcher. You know the old...

    Free Agency 2020

    Count me in as someone who is glad Avila hasn't run out and signed guys already. I really want him to sit back and see how the market plays out. The only player I may look at early is Jason Castro,...

    Young guys with good arms are usually the prey for the Rule V draft. One's you can hide in your pen and hope they will hold their own. Bad teams or rebuilding teams are the one's usually taking a...

    New Addition Dario Agrazal

    Basically swapping out VerHagen (going to Japan) for Dario Agrazal and it didn't cost anything but cash. He seems like a solid body, innings eater, who can be a swing guy for us out of the pen,...

    Brown is interesting but I liked the others a bit more. Might not be a bad bullpen option.

    Tigers International Wave Is Coming

    I have been very vocal about Avila not going after international talent but it seems we are finally seeing some results from his slow venture into it. I still think more concentration on this area...

    Rule V draft prospects

    In looking at what's out there in the rule V draft and us having the first pick, I compiled the following list for Avila. Hope he likes it.

    Well looks like Doug Mientkiewicz was just not enough of a "yes" man for Avila so they got rid of him. Too bad, Avila needs to hear "NO" more often. Doug was a stand up guy who pushed players...

    Well, Ehn back up for Helm and Givanni was called up and put on IR. Any idea why they would do that with Smith? Seems odd.

    Yea, that was ugly. My son kept screaming at AA to pass the puck. It sure looked like he was trying to take the game in his own hands (or stick I guess) at that point and he just failed horribly. ...
