Just a crap signing from the beginning. Oh well hopefully he eats some innings being bad while we can continue to aquire some top end talent in the draft the next two years

I have paid zero mind to the Tigers this year. I'm sure I will watch some games but just haven't paid any attention to them yet. That said I have FSD on one of the TVs right now and they're replaying the game from today.

I have no idea what to expect out of Cabrera and Martinez this year but Gardenhire would really be doing the team a favor by breaking them up in the lineup a bit and not batting them b2b or within a couple spots of each other. They are rally killers on the basepaths. Sprinkles some infielders in between them and space them out a bit with some guys who can run a little.

I can’t picture him, Martinez or Cabrera playing through the entire season without going on the DL list for substantial amounts of time. I’ve seen a few people have the Tigers around 70 wins. I just feel like those three are injured and we are going to trade off more assets by the deadline. Probably going to be a few years before it is back to .500 ball.

We'll see how long it lasts but Miggy is back to being Miggy. Victor has shown some surprising power again, Henning is attributing it to his pride and coming into ST healthy and in shape. Even Zimmerman has looked passable.

Two days and we'll see. I'm always sunshine with the Tigers and hope with the kids they can shock the world but 70 wins is 5X more likely than 90.

ESPN article listing what goal should be of all 30 Major league teams. The last two? The Marlins and the Tigers.

Iif you don't want to click:

Accomplish one of the following:

Have at least one player a young fan can love

I guess make the playoffs?

Detroit Tigers (100-1)
Miami Marlins (300-1)

Everything the Tigers and Marlins do this year will be sad, the product ugly, the philosophy underneath it uncomfortably crass. Lots of things will happen that will nudge up their chances of being good in 2020 or 2021, but the rewards are so far off -- not even "wait 'til next year" -- and uncertain that it'll be hard to be emotionally moved by them. A Tigers fan will tune in to the first pitch of the season, see it delivered by a pitcher coming off a 6.08 ERA, and rightly wonder about the wisdom of dedicating 486 hours to watching what happens to this team next. Neither the Marlins nor Tigers will likely emerge from this season with anything we're likely to call "success." But the very least they must do, the bar that every team that takes up one of the 30 spots in a space-limited league must clear, is to give the fans somebody to love.

A kid was just interviewed over the PA system during the break between innings and when asked who his favorite Tigers player is he said “none of them.” Harsh.

Tough start. But the season is long.

Just noticed a report that Rusty Staub passed away at 73.  More known as a Met, but still an important part of the Tigers' mid-70s late-70s whatever suck era.
