2010 Offseason: Outfield (and DH)

09.11.2010 9 comments

With SS and 3B done, OF and Catcher remain the biggest needs for the boys.  I think it is safe to say that AJax will be starting in center, and the corner positions are up for grabs. In May and June of last year, Boesch in Left and Maggs in Right helped to form a […]

2010 Offseason: The 2011 Rotation

07.11.2010 3 comments

Here’s what I see as set in stone, and what’s on the books for 2011: 1) JV – $12.75M 2) Scherzer – $~1.5M, arb eligible 3) Porcello – $1.536M, club option 4/5) Galarraga – under club control, but note that he’s Super-2 eligible thanks to a rather generously low hurdle this year (2 yrs, 122 […]

(shout out to Vince in MN) Yorvit Torrealba: 32/.271/.343/.378 Victor Martinez: 31/.302/.351/.493 A.J. Pierzynski: 33/.270/.300/.388 John Buck: 30/.281/.314/.489 Alex Avila: 23/.228/.316/.340 Buck is the cream of the crop, but he’s going to be pursued by quite a few teams, and 30 may be a little old for the long term deal that I’m guessing he’ll […]

2010 Offseason: SS

I write this amidst a backdrop of Edgar Renteria headlines…Did you know that Thursday was his first 3 RBI game of the season… The short list for 2011 SS starts and ends with Jhonny Peralta.  The Tigers are sitting on a $7.25M club option, but they are leaning towards declining it (there is a $250k […]

Inge named Marvin Miller man of the year.  The award is voted on by the players and is awarded to the player whose on-field and off-field performances most inspire others to “higher levels of achievement.”  I’ll leave that one open for you guys? This did not bode well for CG last year, maybe a trade […]

2010 Offseason: 3B

I had planned to start with starting pitching, but last week’s Inge resigning prompts that we start at 3B. Inge benefited from a weak free agent class and DD’s inexplicable man-crush.  Two years, $11M, with a club option at $6M for the third.  $5.5M/yr isn’t all that bad, until you consider that: – he’s a […]

2010: POSTseason

Well, 2010 has come to an end.  For our beloved Tigers anyway.  Based on spring forecasts, the boys probably met expectations, but considering where we were at the AS Break, it’s hard to call 2010 anything other than disappointing (okay, maybe “frustrating’). Now, there are a ton of fantastic Tigers topics to debate in the […]

If the weather has not already changed outside your window, summer is officially over.  The Boys wrap up the season looking to end up perfectly even – a .500 club.  That would be a fitting end for the season. My plan is to take a few weeks off through the playoffs, and then start posting […]
