    Talk in Houston about the team taking the financial hit and getting Verlander. However, they still seem to favor the "Detroit pick up a big hunk of the contract approach". Don't see that happening right now...unless Houston throws in a couple of their best prospects.

    Houston has 5 top 100 prospects, all of which would fit Detroit's needs (maybe not until 2019 however). Derek Fisher is a RF who is major league ready and already playing in Hstn. OF Kyle Fisher (their #1 prospect) is better and can play all 3 OF spots, but a year away. They have three good rhp's who could start if not in 2018, by 2019. Francis Marte, Franklin Perez, and Forrest Whitley. If Detroit eats a good hunk of JV's contract....I could see one or two of these guys coming in return.
    Astros just lost a series to the White Sox...maybe they are nervous? :)

    Ausmus is basically Darryl Rogers or Rod Marinelli now. He should have been fired months ago. They could atleast fire fucking Rich Dubee though.

    Doesn't really matter anymore. If ownership is on the ball...they just wait until October and then clean house from GM down to the ballboys.

    Chris Illitch also needs to sell the team to someone that gives a fuck about baseball.

    If he is an Illitch, he will give a fuck about making money. He will bring in people that will help him do just that.

    Tigers announced that Nick Castellanos will begin working out in RF before games....with the goal being to have him play some games there in September, if he shows the ability to handle the new position. Castellanos was the one who approached management about the possible position change.

    The Yankees are looking for a starting pitcher with the recent injuries to Tanaka and Sabathia. Of course Verlander's name was brought up.
    The Yankees might be a good landing spot for JV in an off-season trade, as NY might be willing to work out a deal by swapping contracts for aging players they might want to let go, like Chase Headley or Brett Gardner. But a trade right now would be your usual balancing act of ''money added verses prospects given'' thing we've heard before.

    He already sucked balls in the outfield once.


    But glad he's smart enough to see his days at third are coming to a close.

    Hopefully, when the rosters are expanded after Sept 1, they will have some young players they can use at the DH spot.

    If you read back, I predicted this would happen in 2018, given the loss of JD and the acquisition of Candelario.

    They might as well just DL Cabrera, Fulmer and Norris for the rest of the season. Why risk further injuries, this season is done.

    Tigers should make full use of the waiver list. Also, as the AAA season comes to a close, Detroit should check with other teams and see what veteran minor league players will be released or can be bought, and see if any are worth a look in September. In the long run, will it matter if Detroit ends up with the 13th or 14th worst record in the AL? Their goal at this point should be - Don't Lose 100 Games!
