This might help stabilize the rotation.

Tigers To Sign Francisco Liriano
By Steve Adams | February 23, 2018 at 12:44pm CDT

The Tigers have agreed to a one-year, $4MM contract with lefty Francisco Liriano, reports FanRag’s Robert Murray (Twitter link). Murray had recently tweeted that the market for Liriano, a client of the Legacy Agency, was picking up some steam.

Liriano, 34, enjoyed a resurgence as a key member of the Pirates from 2013-15, somewhat quietly reestablishing himself as a considerably above-average big league starter. The past two seasons, though, have been another story. Liriano has bounced from Pittsburgh to Toronto to Houston, working to a combined 5.05 ERA through 260 innings as the control issues that hounded him earlier in his career resurfaced (4.8 BB/9, 1.3 HR/9). Accordingly, Liriano’s swinging-strike rate dropped to 11.4 percent in 2016 and 9.6 in 2017 — the worst marks of his career.

Liriano still averages better than 92 mph on his fastball and can induce grounders at an average or better rate. He also held lefties to a fairly feeble .247/.300/.355 slash last season, though one would typically prefer to see a bit more dominance against same-handed opponents when considering a pitcher as a left-handed specialist. It’s not clear at this time whether he’ll function as a starter or a reliever with his new club, though in his run with the Astros last season, he worked exclusively out of the bullpen.

Yep, he looked OK.

Liriano is already hurt - hamstring pull.

Yankees suffer the steamrolling today @ 1pm....televised.

Cool, I'll definitely try to watch this one. Not sure if I can get it out here if they black out Yankees spring training games.

I know it's early in the year but I think this is the grittiest team of the Gardenhire era.

Where to start?
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.

Henning with a loooooong article on Gardenhire - you can tell Lynn's been into the sauce a bit when he breaks out this prose. I always chuckle reading his flowery stuff.

Ron Gardenhire goes deep on winding road to Tigers

Decent article by Henning - part of the future - recommended jersey for WBH, Jr.

Henning: Beau Burrows continues steady climb toward Tigers

Candelario story, sounds like Bob's kind of player.

It's easy to like Detroit Tigers third baseman Jeimer Candelario

LAKELAND, Fla. — There’s an awful lot to like about Jeimer Candelario.

It’s the way he acts in the Detroit Tigers clubhouse — quiet but full of confidence.

It’s the way he swings his bat — solid as heck.

It’s the way he prepares — like a true pro.

It’s the way he looks so comfortable at third base.

It’s how he seems to be so centered — he says he draws strength from a strong Christian faith.

They’re hitting triple digit losses. I’m cool with that for a couple years if we see some youth with promise. I’m actually excited for this summer. Less crowded easier seats. I look forward to summer matinee games.

Braves at Tigers at 1pm on FSD

On a side note my boys stopped by with a U-Haul yesterday to pick up some furniture for their new apartment. While going through some stuff son picked up a baseball. Was autographed by Joel Zumaya. There's a keeper.

Zumaya was great. $1M arm. $0.10 brain.


But I loved him anyway, even as I judged him.

Long over due.

I don’t know what my problem is this year, maybe it’s the fact the tigers blew the team up but I’m having a hard time getting into this season so far. Haven’t watched one spring game. Now that MSU hoops is done probably going to gravitate over to it.

I know they lose 95+. But I’ll watch a half dozen down there this summer.

Oh yeah, I bought Denny McClain’s organ album tonight. Found it at the record store and on the cover he’s on the mound in his Tigers uniform and it says ‘Denny McClain Swinging With Today’s Hit’. Had no idea he played the Hammond Organ but it was so cheap I figured it would be a good piece of Tigers memorabilia to have.

There’s a minor league team about 40 miles from where I live. Going to go check a dozen or so games this summer. Probably make it down for a few Mets games as well. Even if the team stinks there’s nothing like being in a park. Made it to a Phillies game last year and it was a great day even though they stunk it up.
