    No question ... as a Tiger fan ... I say go for it ... I'd be looking for bullpen help if I were the Indians (Shane Green can be had for a decent prospect).

    Word.

    The bullpen has been doing better - 3.21 ERA in June, compared to 6.13 Apr/May - but I imagine some of that is they've played 16 of 18 June games against the Tigers, Twins and White Sox.

    Hopefully Miller can return healthy, but regardless, a solid bullpen arm or two would be awesome.

    You don't want to bring Miller back until he's 100% ... because I still think you're gonna walk into the play-offs.

    That is until we sweep you this weekend (BOOM)

    Agreed on the trade. As for Kip, he should go to the Mets where he belongs. I am done with that carpet muncher

    Absolutely, but there's the scary possibility that he won't be 100% at all this year. You never know.

    Stranger things have happened, but I wouldn't hold my breath on that one.

    I hear you, and it's probably just Twins and White Sox pitching, but Kipnis is slashing
    .304/.360/.565/.925 over the last six games. . .

    6 years???? Okay cash me in on that. Also in 6 years Trump will be enjoying his second successful term, Angels will have finally had enough of Mike Sciocia's blundering as a manager and will make him President of Baseball Operations (because he apparently has dirt on Arte Moreno) and Sciocia hires 78 year old Buck Showalter as manager because he's finally gonna do it this time. And last, the Indians will have finally paid off the contract of Travis (fragile vaginal)Hafner.

    First of all, you are a Royals fan. Life already sucks for you. What's some more heartbreak?

    Just trying to generate some excitement and interest in the series.

    Something to make it more than just the best team in baseball vs. the worst team.

    Actually, you have more to gain than me. If the Astros win, well, they were supposed to and it's not a big deal. Now, if the Royals win, then it's something.

    Yeah, and anything can happen in baseball. Shit teams beat good teams all the time.

    Look at @Voltaire26, the Tigers blow, but he's done an avi bet with me on every Indians/Tigers series this year - and he won one!
