Pulled a guy up from AA to start the second game today (Soto). He only has 13 innings at AA level at that. Brutal.

I am really not able to comment on the coaching staff. I have always liked Gardenhire and the players seem to like him. He's fine. They are rebuilding; lots of young players. So I am expecting nothing from the year other than getting to know these players better.


Their first round pick Mize has been lights out since moving up to AA including a no-hitter

Casey Mize so far is looking to be as advertised. 45 innings between high A and AA with 3 ER, 40 K, and 3 BB. Not too shabby!

The way the Tigers are going through SP, maybe he will make to the majors this year.

Maybe it's time to start using position players on the mound. This whole pitcher thing isn't working very well.

Losing nine in a row at home is generally not a good thing or so I am told.

3 of the starting pitchers are looking impressive so far and 2 or 3 guys out of the bullpen. The rest of the pitching staff is in shambles. Of course, the pitching is getting no help from the lineup as they are still struggling to produce runs. Jones is actually above 200 now. Would love to be proved wrong on him. I bet management is almost relieved to have some of these unproductive veterans on the IL. If you're going to lose, at least lose with youth that may get better.

Casey Mize now has a 1.40 ERA in AA. He must have been 'roughed up' since that no hitter. 6-0 with a .572 WHIP for all of 2019 to date. 60K in 64.2 innings.

I can't imagine him not making an appearance in Detroit if he keeps pitching like that.

Send him to Toledo soon and see what challenges he faces there.

Having a hard time figuring out this James McCann thing. I don't fault the Tigers for not foreseeing his breakout this season but why didn't they bring him back in the first place? The team had no intention of promoting Jake Rogers this year and even if they did could he not learn behind a veteran at the MLB level for a bit? If it was a money thing, he made 2.375 million in 2018 and signed a one year deal for 2.5 million in last years free agency with Chicago. So am I missing an angle on this??

Too bad Dteroit had such a decent start. It will make hitting 120 losses a little dicy.

Shane Greene hasn't been used in 5 or 6 days - I wonder where he'll be going.


They didn't skip Boyd's start today so maybe he is staying after all.

Saw an info blurb run along the bottom of the screen on MLB Network earlier that read if the Tigers win tonight it will be the first time they have won back to back games since May!!!! No pressure guys, no pressure.

Three and a half hours to the deadline. Maybe this team is so bad that it can't even unload anything on the roster for a shiny red ball.

Getting ready to watch Norris turn in 4 or 5 mediocre or worse innings and hand it over to a bullpen holding a gas can.

Actually, no. Not doing that today.

Greene went to Atlanta - don't know what was received at this point.

Edit: Castellanos to Cubs

Looks like spare parts for spare parts were recieved in the Castellanos deal but the guys they got for Greene are decent prospects. #7 guy in their system.


We shall see.

Tigers have the money tied up in aging stars --- #1 reason for Cas trade to Cubs - Greene to Atlanta ...... if they could trade Mig without fans uprising they would get rid of as much of that contract as they could ......
