What a game. I missed a bit doing bath time and bed time and shit. Did Greeny pitch yet? Who is left in the bullpen?

Missed the Sox series, was out of town this weekend but saw tonight's game.

The Tigers should seriously sell everything they have. They don't have crap in the farm system, and they don't have enough to make a run this year.

It's frustrating when you look at all the prospects they traded away that are playing well for other teams now. They blew up their farm system and traded it all away but are clinging to veterans that are WAY past their prime. Sad.

Hicks’ dream comes true, catching Verlander

Kansas City, Mo. — Growing up in Goochland, Virginia, John Hicks hung around the baseball field, watching just about every game his brother Daniel and his best friend, a stud pitcher named Justin Verlander, played.

Hicks and his brother celebrated the night Verlander was drafted and they’ve remained close all through Verlander’s brilliant career.

Imagine the thrill Daniel Hicks must have felt when he got a text message from Verlander Monday night — something to effect of “Hey, your little brother is catching me tomorrow.”

“My brother is probably more excited about it than Justin or I am,” Hicks said.

It will certainly be a big night for the folks in Goochland — two of their native sons comprising the starting battery for the Tigers.

If their record dictates "sell" he might surprise us with what he would bring. Especially to a contender that was weak or injured at C.

He's pretty fun to watch tonight. Had a great catch on that foul and a good throw to second to get the runner out.

I'm with you though, sell whatever you can this year at the mid point. That includes Verlander, Kinsler, Miggy to whoever else can you get top prospects.

I would seriously weep if JV were traded, I've hoped he was a career Tiger. That said if they're overwhelmed they have to make the deal.

Other than JV I see 2 untouchables on this team - Fulmer/Norris - with Boyd/Casty/McCann behind them.

I'll add the only way I would trade JV is if he goes to a WS contender and we get something good in return. Otherwise keep him as a career Tiger.

I would like to revisit my post about the 5 or 6 things the Tigers need to go right to compete but stupid forumotion deleted all of the pages > the last 5. Seems like only one of the things I recall mentioning is happening (Fulmer). I think this team is cooked to be honest. Even fully healthy I can't see all of those things starting to click and having the team rip off a healthy > .500 streak.

Your post isn't deleted, just chopped off into an "old" thread.

Thanks Goose. Found it:

WhiteBoyHatcher wrote:To expand on that thought, just from a Pitching perspective, here are some of the things I think they would really need to happen and my confidence in them:

SP:
JV to continue to be one of the best SP in the AL - confidence meter - 90%
Fulmer to continue his ascension - confidence meter - 75% (would not be surprised if he had a soph slump and leveled off a bit this year)
Boyd to take a big leap - 60%. I like Boyd. He can be the crafty lefty and I like his makeup.
Norris to take the next step to be a legit #2/#3 SP - 40%. Just don't see the consistency happening this year.
JZ to prove last year was a fluke - 5%. Last year was not a fluke imo. I thought JZ was bad for a few years before Detroit signed him

Bullpen:
K Rod to shake the early jitters and return to last year's form - 10%
Justin/Alex Wilson to keep up their early pace - 75%. These guys are pretty good.
Rondon to become a late inning contributor - 5%
Jiminez to become a late inning contributor THIS year - 20%
Greene to settle in - Greene has GREAT stuff. I will maintain that. But 10%. He hasn't figured out how to use his arsenal yet and no reason to think it will happen this year
Sanchez to return to a semblance of his former self - 1%

I would say the Tigers would need 3 of those things to happen from their SP staff and 3 of them to happen from their BP in order to compete for the Central and be a legit WC team that actually might have a chance to win something in October.

Don't see it.

So I said they would need 3 from the SP to happen and 3 from the Bullpen to happen.

From the SP, I think only 1 is happening (Fulmer). You could argue that the Norris thing may be starting to happen but I still see a lot of inconsistencies. You could also argue that the JV thing will happen but so far it hasn't with any consistency. Best case scenario, we call it 2 of those 5 actually happening at present.

Bullpen? 2 of 6. Wilsons and Greene are doing a decently good job. The others are all pretty much off the table at the moment.

11 things, needed to bat about .550 on them. Currently batting about .250. Just like the lineup!
