I disagree. I think the team is doing exactly what they need to do. They gave this team a chance to win, it didn't happen now they've committed to rebuild. Of course mistakes were made over the past few years but I don't see them as being from a lack of trying.

I'm not sure a manager better than Ausmus is possible for at least two more years. No one with experience is going to want to be in charge of a trainwreck roster next year and a young roster with potential the next year.

Pretty much. Whoever takes the job understands they have that job for a year or two years tops.

Tigers need 18 new pitchers to get back to the top of the central.

And while we are at it let's review the bad contracts:

We have Zimmerman to 2020: 22 mill a year
V Mart and Sanchez through next year: 33 million

Cabrera expires 2023: 31 million a year which will be looked back upon as the worst contract in sports history.

Pujols may be worse. Depends if Miggy can avoid injury for a couple decent years.

The best we can hope for is a career like Big Papis at the DH. I think we are just going to see a decline in speed, batting and an increase in days spent on the dl list.

Tigers to extend safety netting at Comerica

Tigers among several teams working on this for next season.



KANSAS CITY -- The Tigers are working on plans to extend the netting at Comerica Park for next season, according to a statement released by the team.

"Ballpark operations is developing a plan whereas netting would be extended in time for the 2018 season," the statement said. "We'll have more to share on this, at another point in time."

Jesus.

Cabrera’s wife filed for divorce on eve of ’17 season

No idea how this was kept out of the media for six months.

Miguel Cabrera’s wife of 15 years filed for divorce just prior to the start of the 2017 baseball season, another off-field distraction the Tigers’ superstar slugger was facing as he struggled through the worst year of his professional career.

Rosangel Cabrera filed the dissolution-of-marriage paperwork March 17, saying the relationship is “irretrievably broken,” and Cabrera agreed in his response dated April 18. This is according to court documents obtained by The Detroit News from the Miami-Dade County Civil, Family and Probate Courts system.

Goose, put a ":small" at the end of these big photos so we can see all of it. I tried the ":blog" that Kingston or Travis said, but of course it's Travis so it didn't work much like his penis.

Travis doesn't have a penis.

Things are looking up for the Tigers in 2018........

The way-too-early 2018 power rankings: Can Houston repeat?

30. Detroit Tigers

2017 record: 64-98

They lost 98 games with a team that had Justin Upton and Justin Verlander on the roster for most of the season and J.D. Martinez for 57 games. Without those three in September, they went an abysmal 6-24 while getting outscored by 90 runs. That's a shocking three runs per game, even though two of the six wins were by scores of 13-2 and 12-0. Even a bounce-back from Miguel Cabrera won't be enough to save this team from 100 losses.
