    Here we go everyone. Time to get the 2016 smack talk started.

    No talking about Bums pizza place!

    Good luck to the Central teams and their fans...

    can we talk about how he claims the tigers are the oldest team in the AL central but the Royals actually are?

    MLB Power Rankings: Early Predictions For 2016

    The AL Central should see the Tigers come back to the contention fold for 2016 with their recent revamped Bullpen and also signing Jordan Zimmermann. They are by far the oldest team in the AL Central, so they need to stay healthy.

    oh i can guarantee.. if you take all the players on the 40 man roster of the tigers it ends up at an even 27 yrs of age... which actually makes them the youngest team in the division.

    That's also cherry picking the fuck out of your numbers to make them appear what they aren't. How about the projected 25 man roster? Taking 15 kids from your minor league system, most of which won't see a cup of coffee in The Show this year, out of the equation is a MUCH more accurate assessment of what your team's ACTUAL team age is.

    You can do the 25 man too... no matter how you cut it.. they are not the oldest team in the division. Using the 40 man really ISN'T cherry picking... because EVERY team in the division has 15 kids on their 40 man.. are you trying to tell me the Twins, White Sox, Indians. and Royals don't have young kids on their 40 man? To be honest.. the Royals have the youngest kid on their 40 man... and they are still the oldest team..

    So yeah.. using the 40 man is NOT cherry picking... but go how ever you want.. I already showed that the rotation in KC is actually older... try your hand at the math as show me that I am wrong.

    Fact is this... The oldest player on the Tigers now is Vmart... The oldest player on the royals is Chris Young... who is only about 5 months younger... The majority of the Royals 25 man roster is 30 or over.. .with only a few under 30... The Tigers will only have 10 guys over 30 on their 25 man on opening day.... The Royals will have 14.

    To be honest... Its not even an argument here... people can cry about it all they want.. its basic math.. there is no opinion.. do the math. When you have a bunch of guys over 30 on your roster.. and the other team has a bunch of 23-25 yr olds... It really isn't to hard to see. We can move on any time now.. This is another argument caused by a complete bullshit statement from da55bums... who once again is wrong.

    40-man rosters average age

    Tigers - 27.7
    Royals - 27.8

    Immaterial.

    Now, please shut the fuck up with your petty bullshit.

    Actually its not immaterial.. da55bums made a completely BS statement and I proved it incorrect. Would love to see where you got 27.7.. because when I do it by hand.. it comes to exactly 27... but regardless... his statement was FALSE.... We can all move along now...

    Your hand sucks.

    I dumped their 40-man roster with DOBs from the Tigers' website into an excel file.

    As of today, the players on the Tigers' 40-man roster have existed for a combined 405,028 days. That's a 27.7 year average.

    and to be honest... its a complete and total insult to Mike Pelfrey to lump him in with a pizza shop that that failed and is no longer in existence.
