    I have a feeling that it will be hard to distinguish the pregame practice from the in-game practice. I like the can-do attitude. I’m not sure I buy the can-do, though.

    Zimmerman is his usual razor sharp $20 mil self!

    Read Casty working in the outfield. Clark says he is doing great.. Let’s see. MLB.. Worst defender
    MLB.. Worst base runner
    Is this some kind of sick joke????

    Hey Brad.. Your pen guys come in a walk the first guy they face All the Time.. Do they actually warm up out there or are they finishing their euchre fame?

    Since we have 7 games (I think) against the White Sox left, we could be playing meaningful games in September, for last place.

    The problem I see for the rest of this season and going into 2018 is the uncertainty of it all. It stars with the ownership. If he club is not to be sold, they should announce it in early September. That should put Al Avila and Brad and his staff that it’s very possible they won’t be here in 2018. I do not see any signs of urgency by the club management to indicate they have any plan at all for the future. If we go to spring training next year with the same manager and coaches I see another disastrous season. All season I wondered why Miggy is not FORCED into the DL to take a good look at his “nagging” injuries. There is no excuse for allowing him to perform so poorly without even checking him out properly. He could end up as the best paid .250 hitter in MLB history.

    Kins.. MIGGY.. VMart.. CASTY.. Their nightly 2/14..they should all donate their 2017 year salary to the Boys Club of Detroit, because not one of these guys earned their bazillion $$$. This year.
