That’s using all your outs

22.04.2010 34 comments

The Tigers performance with runners in scoring position of late has caused much consternation. Sometime the failures have just been bad, but during this recent stretch a significant portion was bad luck. It’s only fitting then that Ramon Santiago plated the go-ahead run with an “excuse-me” flop shot to left.

Baseball Prospectus released the first run of their 2010 PECOTA numbers this week, which makes for much fun in the stat-centric baseball community. PECOTA differentiates itself from many of the other predictors by finding pools of comparable players to make their predictions. While the numbers are premium content (and can also be found in the printed annual), I will share a few of the items that jumped out at me about the Tigers.

I don’t remember the general manager meetings being this interesting in past years. Most of the action seems to usually take place at the winter meetings that take place in December. This year the GM meetings have served Tigers fans up with a disconcerting set of rumors with the Tigers making most of the team available for trade. But does this qualify as a fire sale?

There has been considerable speculation about the Tigers financial state. The payroll will be high, and there are continued questions about revenue potential. Mike Ilitch saw less advertising revenue. Attendance was relatively strong, but the Tigers missed out on any postseason gate receipts despite adding payroll midseason.

Infirmary report and other thoughts

03.08.2009 2 comments

Aside from Joel Zumaya’s season ending surgery, the news is actually pretty good on the injury front. So much so that the only wound licking to take place should be residual pain of a 2-4 road trip. Carlos Guillen, already swinging a productive stick from the left side, could be playing in left field by […]

Catching up on the Tigers injuries and recoveries of note: Jeremy Bonderman is feeling great after playing catch. He’s up to 90 feet with no pain. That’s good. Joel Zumaya went to see Dr. James Andrews for stiffness. That’s bad. But there’s nothing wrong. That’s good. Gerald Laird has a strained quadricep. And Bobby Seay […]

08.12.2008 19 comments

Paraphrasing some comments from Gerald Laird during his conference call today: Thoughts on the Tigers pitchers: looking forward to being on the same side as Verlander, Bonderman and other guys and catching them instead of hitting them. Doesn’t really know the guys on the team that well aside from playing against them Comerica is a […]
