    This team has some serious potential if 2 of the 3 SPs turn into ace level guys. Unfortunately I think only Skubal will. Mize disappoints me and Manning reminds me of a better version Jacob Turner so far (which is baaaad).

    In the offseason I'd like them to sign Correa and trade Manning for a young MIF to pair with Carlos or OF. Also bring back Max or JV to anchor rotation.

    Yeah Manning isn't off to a great start

    Skubal is getting better, he's a strikeout artist, learning on the fly to work the count better

    Mize has been solid, strong improvement over last year

    definitely premature to sign old guys for a push, though

    We whiffed on trading Peralta and Haase while they were hot. With Torkelson, Greene, and Dingler on the way up, there's promise, but we're a long way from being buyers

    Max or J isn't for a push. It's to show the young guys how to pitch and be a successful major leaguer. Like Kenny Rogers was to JV. We don't have that now.

    Kenny signed for $8M and was part of a push, JV is making $33M and won't be looking for a discount to finish his career as a mentor

    Are you denying that Kenny helped teach JV to pitch?

    both walked off the field after medical attention, but damn

    Sounds like a concussion for Baddoo. Not sure about Hill yet (that I've seen).

    it's weird being 3 games under .500 this late, and technically 2nd place in the division

    I'm a broken record, I love watching the team win, but it's probly better to lose. We're like 9 games out of the wild card with interleague road games still to play, and like Ahoda said, our young arms need to be shut down soon

    but damn it's fun to see them play well, and Big Mig is at 499!

    edit: looking at the schedule, we're gonna get demolished in September

    we got demolished today, it was 11-0 before we could blink

    almost gave up a perfecto, and ended up with more errors than hits

    eek

    Greene, Tork, and Kreidler got the call up to AAA. This might not do anything this year but we are getting closer to seeing Tork and Greene up in Detroit.

    Castro-Nunez-Castro-Greiner-Reyes all in a row is disgusting.

    Two announcers fighting would make the bullpen prolapsing all over the field a lot more fun.
