    I think the Tigers will need to sign a free agent left fielder. I can't see going into the season with Mahtook in CF and Castellanos in RF and some AAA outfielder in left. Don't need to break the bank, but get someone with experience and who is capable of hitting .275 with a little power.

    I hope it's pointing to a time to rebuild. The worse place you can be is stuck in the middle.

    One year deal?

    Stewart could start the year at Toledo I guess. But he has 1400 abs as a pro now. Will be 24 next year and has 58 homers the last two seasons. I'd go with him. Not like it's going to hurt any.

    The original 2017 Tigers roughed him up earlier this year.

    That night might be what costs him tCYA.

    Of course, this ain't the original 2017 Tigers either. Lol

    Klubers ERA against us this year is 5.24

    Astros gave him his second highest mark, of 3.86.


    I'm still outside. We could already be down 6-0 for all I know.

    I heard today that Tigers are asking for season ticket holders to make their first payment for 2018 in October. That's two months quicker than normal.

    Weird.


    Boyd must've pitched well tonight.

    Still have a chance to end the streak.

    Boyd gives up 1 run, but somehow manages to throw 116 pitches in 5 innings. Already into the bullpen. Oh, and the Tigers have a whopping 2 hits off of Kluber.

    I saw him strike out EE and that was pretty much it.

    Opinion | Here's why I think the Detroit Tigers are up for sale

    "A recent evaluation of MLB teams by Forbes found that the Tigers have lost money six times in the last nine years. For the 2016 campaign, the operating income resulted in a loss of $34.6 million, the worst in the MLB. In contrast, the Ilitch's Detroit Red Wings, despite a disappointing season, posted an operating income of $6.1 million."

    I could understand the Illitch family unloading something that was, admittedly, dad's pet project. But as long as the team remains in Detroit - and isn't bought by the owner of Papa Johns Pizza - it will be fine with me.

    Besides Greene and maybe Alex Wilson, are there any MLB-worthy pitchers on the current Tigers roster? Don't think so.
