I think they'll try to buy him out. Offer him around the league for $1-2M a year with the Tigers paying the $16M and eventually cut him and eat the $18M. He doesn't fit on this team at all.

We need a volunteer to start the '18 thread......not Roe since he screwed the pooch on this year. ;-))

So I guess Lou is denied being on ballot again.

Detroit Tigers greats Morris and Trammell up for Hall of Fame again; Whitaker snubbed

I can't believe that team of 84 has no HOF's.   WTF?   did they do it with mirrors?

68 only had Kaline and he really didn't do much that year in comparison.

You can make marginal HoF arguments for Freehan and Lolich.

68 wasn't 84 Goose.  That 84 team was brilliant.  Up the middle, not a better four in baseball.   Pitching staff was sick, and if you didn't beat them by the 7th inning you lost.  You had 21 outs per game.  I know I'm biased.  There were some players on that team.

Wags? I was a big fan in 68 as a kid. In '84 I was living at 23M & 94 and attended in the neighborhood of 30 games at the Stadium in addition to road trips to Toronto, Chicago and Cleveland so I knew that team pretty well. Trammell and Whitaker should have been elected by the writers. Morris has a shaky case at best, I could name 5-7 better pitchers that aren't in.

Sheeit, in 84 I was living at 94 & Whittier. We were practically neighbors. My game total in 84 was about 1/2 of yours though.

I was 24, single and in charge of my own time so I took full advantage of what was a historic season from the start. I was dating this cute latina that worked at the Home Plate Bar kitty corner to the stadium so I was in the area of the stadium for nearly every game.

Yankees reached out to Ausmus and were rebuffed. Seems he wants to take a year off from managing.

Crazy he turned it down. In one year he could have shut up the ‘Ausmus sucks’ crowd.

Tigers sign 1st baseman Edwin Espinal to minor-league deal

Espinal, 23, signed with the Pirates out of the Dominican Republic in 2011. The 6-foot-2, 250-pound right-hander plays first and third base.

He elected free agency after posting the best offensive season of his career. He hit .283 with 15 home runs and 25 doubles in 95 games at Double-A Altoona.

He's currently playing in the Dominican Winter League, where he's hit .329 with two home runs in 22 games.

I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

No one is taking the $184,000,000 he is owed. Not even for a portion of it. He's probably retiring with this contract in a Tigers uniform.
