2019 DETROIT TIGERS Thread
 
I realize that it's going to be a tough year but does anyone have an explanation as to why they have a 21 year veteran of the minors, mexican and Indy leagues that had a cup of coffee with LA back in 2010 and hasn't played in two years on the roster?

I just saw him listed on the roster page at ESPN - hopefully it is just an error! :crying:

Like the move to sign Josh Harrison on a one year deal. If he has some success you can flip him and if he doesn't you are not on a long term hook.

Are any of you stunned that Jose Iglesius remains unsigned? Wonder why?

To think of all the 1B/DH corpses you could have had... Adrian Gonzalez anyone? And they sign this guy? :laugh:

Maybe a clerical error. Maybe they signed his kid? :p

Candelario hits into that 3-6-3 double play that my Raccoons always hit into that I had yet to see in real action. :laugh:

Detroit Tigers' Michael Fulmer needs Tommy John surgery, says Dr. Andrews :(

CONN CHRIS 03-28-2019 06:34 PM

Very pleased with Harrison at second.

Now, if they can just manage to hold everyone scoreless, this could be a great year!

CONN CHRIS 03-29-2019 07:22 PM

Great first inning for Boyd!

First pitch fastball was knocked off the wall for a triple and then he struck out the side with fantastic control.

CONN CHRIS 03-29-2019 09:28 PM

Boyd pitched well. That four run inning wasn't all his fault. An unfortunate slow rolloer to load the bases and Mahtook butchered a short single to clear the bases.


New SS looks pretty sharp. Unlikely to make me forget about Jose but he'll do I suppose.

CONN CHRIS 03-30-2019 06:21 PM

Miggy took a pitch to his right hand - ugh

Turnbull was good until he wasn't (I sense a pattern starting).

Alcantara looks like he could be a bright spot in the pen - maybe.

Score some runs man. Not much to look at outside of Miggy and Castellanos these last two games. Although I am hopeful about what Candelario and Stewart could do. Harrison and Goodrum may be decent contributors too.

CONN CHRIS 03-31-2019 03:38 PM

Moore looks good today. Really, starting pitchng has been better than I would have expected thus far.

Edit: At last! plated a few runs! Hold on boys.

CONN CHRIS 03-31-2019 04:24 PM

... and the bullpen is in mid season form

CONN CHRIS 03-31-2019 05:27 PM

whew. Shane Greene is not very closer-like but 2-2 is 2-2!

Todd Jones, Jr.?

I think so. I know he gets hit too but I'd almost rather have Jiminez close. His fastball moves pretty well and he can over power batters at times. But what do I know.

CONN CHRIS 04-02-2019 10:13 PM

Up 3-1 in the ninth! I am stuck listening to my least favorite broadcast team (waldman & sterling) because my MLB.tv Tigers game is blacked out due to proximity to the evil empire.

Last night, I had to listen to Waldman blathering about what a great opportunity this series is for the Yankees young pitchers because 'Detroit is still a major league lineup, they can still challenge you but what a great chance for success for the young guys' :-) loving the game tonight!

CONN CHRIS 04-04-2019 05:03 PM

It's way too early but I'm used to the starting pitching already being a disaster by now. Feeling pretty good!

Fifth save for Greene - dude is not a closer. He will burn us and bad. (have to keep the standard Detroit pessimist flame going)

Yeah no doubt, I too am happy with this start, totally unexpected. It is really nice to have a solid manager making decisions instead of the guys we have had recently. As for Greene (I have an optimist flame going), if he can keep up good production and we can get a good trade for him I'll be very happy!! :D

stevem810 04-05-2019 10:46 PM

I'll settle for a team that plays hard and keeps improving. It is very nice to see the team off to such a good start. Crazier things have happened.
