    Jud – still going with 81-81? That is looking very optimistic to me.

    2 things that will happen before the end of the season: 1) someone will score 20 against the Tigers. 2) the Tigers will be no-hit.

    1980. That was 35 years ago. That was the last time anyone hit over .380 (George Brett). I’m saying Canrera can do it.

    Cabrera’s 7th multi-hit game in a row ties a career high set in August 2006 (w/Marlins)

    maybe time to shut him down for the year, and let him get healthy for next season – DH Cabrera, and give some young guy(s) a chance at 1B

    Hey Victor..nice game again. Can’t wait til Ausmus says how good you are making all your outs

    Biggest issues for next season: starting pitching, bullpen, left field, and what do you do with Victor?

    It doesn’t matter that much right now. But Victor has been hurt, then bad, then good again, for a couple cycles now. At some point he will stay bad, and maybe we’re at it. Considering his contract and stature on the team, we could be stuck with him for a few years of crap. We have a vacuum in the cleanup spot right now; what do we do if we have the same Victor next year? I would be insane to keep running him out there in the cleanup spot. Actually, it’s insane right now.

    At a certain point, you have to consider maybe a guy’s done. They did with Magglio. Can they with Victor, or will they trot him out there next year at cleanup batting about .220? Or will he have another MVP caliber season and make me look stupid? Hopefully the latter.

      you’re right Coleman, DET’s priority for ’16 should be pitching, pitching & pitching (starting, relief, plus new pitching coaches and a Mgr that gets ‘the most’ out of his staff)… and bidding on top-tier FA pitchers is not a route DET will (or should) go. DET should also develop an infrastructure to better develop/improve young pitchers, which includes converting starters to relievers and visa-versa – when appropriate.

      With a few younger (new) pitchers in the mix (who have options), DET should go into Spring Training looking for 7 solid starting pitchers (as insurance for injuries and other issues); and beyond Rondon, Wilson & Hardy, DET should look to add 3-4 reliable/quality relief pitchers either from within or via FA or trade.

      As for VMart, DET has to ‘hope’ injuries derailed him this year, and if he’s healthy he’s a viable DH in ’16. He’s a great clubhouse presence and example (concentration) for young and other hitters, but if he enters ’16 injured or he struggles through May ’16, DET really has to consider cutting their losses w/him.

    Ausmus doesn’t have the balls to move Victor to the 7 spot, let alone shut him down…therefore we are stuck with the least productive hitter in the 4 spot in the MLB……to which Assmus will say….”thats baseball, theres nothing I can do!”

      Its more than just rest, he had a good part of last week off and has come back worse this week so it itn’t a matter of resting a few days!

    Shane Greene to have surgery in Dallas tomorrow to repair his circumflex (shoulder) artery… he’s expected to begin throwing in 2 months and should be ready for spring training.
