  1. Why is Collins on the team. He is awful in the field and at the plate. I don’t care if he is out of options put him on waivers get him out of here. He should have been released as soon as he flipped the fans the bird. He is not a major league player.

    • Do you think the Astros would have walked Miggy intentionally tonight if J.D. Martinez were batting behind him instead of V-Mart?

  2. I have to wonder if JV is starting to stare into the void of never getting that WS ring. I never thought he would fight his way back to dominance. Even with his bad outing last night, he has accomplished something that a few of us thought was possible. He deserves to at least have a chance at that ring, all those guys do, but it looks like it isn’t happening in Detroit anytime soon. You have to wonder if he isn’t beginning to look at ways to get to “Greener Pastures”.

    • With the Tigers inconsistent offense and poor defense I would think all of the pitchers would be looking for greener pastures. Getting to the playoffs and then hoping your team over achieves is not a winning strategy.

  3. Why is Tyler Collins on this team? Although he occasionally gets a hit, he is a poor hitter and is an unacceptable fielder. I haven’t checked the stats, but I suspect he is at the bottom in almost every category of outfielders in the American league. And why isn’t there much being written about Jacoby Jones? We know he was the best outfielder that the Tigers have, and he has the potential of being a good hitter. What is really going on?

  4. Time to go outside the box. Bring up Anthony Gose! He can be our bullpen LOOGY (left handed one out guy). He could even go in and out from the mound to the outfield. If nothing else, he would drive the other teams bonkers with all the delays it would cause having him switch positions all the time. He can also pinch run. He’d be invaluable for interleague play.

  5. When can we stop hearing about how Verlander, Norris and Boyd are having great seasons? When can we stop hearing about the great seasons Upton and Castellanos are having?

  6. Holly, the assignment today is for the entire class to go to the blackboard and write one hundred times, ‘The Tigers are driving me crazy.’

  7. The other day a pitcher was pulled with men on base. The BP came in and because of an error an unearned run scored. Why is that charged against the starting pitcher? Because he let them get on base in the first place. “It’s not fair,” someone said. Yes, it is fair because BB is a TEAM game. His players are supposed to have his back and not let anyone score. You have to be able to count on your teammates to make the plays. Some people don’t get that.

  8. Tigers suffer from the same debilitating disease as their skating neighbors across i75: Ilitch-Itis. Mike spent crazy money on long term contracts for stars ( I use that word loosely, I.e mr zimmerman.) that either got old too fast or haven’t performed as expected. Now both teams are hamstrung by these contracts. Mike also had little luck hiring GM’s. IMHO he got one good one for each team: Devellano and Dombrowski. Others such as Randy Smith, ken Holland and Al Avila have been detriments to their employers.

  9. The sooner the plug is pulled and the tear down and rebuilding begins the easier it will be on the fan base as a whole. I think the Indians will pull a ’12 Tigers. Everyone knows the wildcards will come from the A.L. East. I think the Tiger fan base is tired of cheering for an expensive team that has stars but can’t ever seem to get over the hump and be the last team standing at the end. I see the franchise getting more leaner, younger and efficient in the coming years and hopefully Caesar,the analytical database,will guide the decision makers in making better financial decisions when it comes to signing players and making wiser draft choices based on the Cubs model of player development. I’ll gladly take 5 years of being cellar dwellers if in that time we can draft like the Royals and have another window to contend for a championship like the Cubs.
