Joe Sheehan made a list of who’s been naughty and nice (premium). He lists the Tigers in the nice category saying the Bonderman deal was a risk worth taking, and really liking the addition of Sheffield:
I suspect that his impact on the team’s overall run scoring will be greater than we can model. Adding an OBP guy to a high-SLG, low-OBP lineup should have a larger effect than adding it to a more balanced lineup.
I did an interview with Mike from the Daily Fungo Podcast. It doesn’t look like it’s up yet, but I’ll drop the permalink in here when he posts it. It’s nice talking baseball again.
Smoking Loon Thank you very much, StorminNorman$. Still a bit more work to do, but I absolutely had to complete the series
Jim EggersUSMC Took a break from the Xmas prep stuff and read this last piece, reminded me how one sided that DS
StorminNorman$ OUTSTANDING '14 recap Loon!!!
DET has won the past two AL Central titles by 1-game... I suspect with the newly re-loaded
Ilian Georgiev Thanks for sharing score board for 9th innings i have missed this match !
Vince in MN Yup, they definitely won't be running away with it like the last couple of years.
StorminNorman$ ...for the record, and if DD would have checked with me - I'd have signed Melky Cabrera and hung on
The approx. 75-80 games against AL Central teams will be more difficult for DET this year...as opposed to the past
