I'll hope he knows something we don't, I just don't have a lot of hope for a huge signing at this point without selling the farm system .... again.

Well, they played the horrible Phillies again and Jonathan Papelbon is there with 1 or 2 years left before free agency, and not much chance that team is going to need him very often. Don't need a closer when you are going to lose most games, the Phillies have a horrible offense... Maybe something like that is possible, costs a lot sure, I don't know any details, if a trade could be made. I hope they don't try to rely on Soria for the whole season, but it may be.

Jim said he has been around baseball for a long time (he has, he was on the '68 WS team) and his hunch that something will happen is pretty strong. I hope he is right.

I don't know who's out there that they can get that won't cost them a fortune. Add him to the list of people they never should have signed.... isn't that thing getting longer and longer!

Jim Price on the radio says he doesn't think they are bringing Joe Nathan north with the team he is so bad. He feels they will make a move for a closer right now, I haven't heard any rumors but haven't been looking. They can't have another year with no confidence in the closer because it disrupts the entire team. I agree with him on that.

I know, it is snowing sideways here...

I listened to a game I had missed last season yesterday, June 30, where the A's were in Detroit and the Tigers were down by 3 runs and Rajai Davis hit the walk off Grand Slam. That was a slow game, good pitching until the runs late, and then very dramatic ending. And the Tigers needed that win in the end!

Today they might play 2 or 3 starters for 2 innings. Spring Training games are kind of boring, in a way, because lots of guys play with #178 on their jerseys, who have lockers on wheels next to the door.

Next Tuesday Spring games start on the radio. My Gameday Audio subscription includes AtBat app for android this year too, so I can listen on the go. I haven't even kept track of all the new players on the team, or which positions are in contention at Spring Camp. I know they are deciding on backup catcher between McCann and Holiday, and a utility infielder position.

I am waiting for the dreaded words "rebuilding" to be uttered and then the trading of all the star players. We have at least one more good year to look forward to, maybe more? We've had a pretty good run since '06, for the most part. I am a spoiled Tigers fan. I never did find a poster of Prince in a Tigers uniform to add to my collection, the poster makers correctly hedged their bets. Miguel posters came out right away. Wish I had a Carlos Guillen. I do have a Pudge and a Magglio hanging next to Miguel.

MS making 1.4 million per month- and only being able to pitch "part time" compared to the number of games they have is worse I'd say. Especially since he can only pitch about 5 innings before he's done for the day. He's going to be well into his 40's and they will still be paying him that- crazy!!!

Good for the Nats, they got a good pitcher. At least he didn't go to the Chicago White Sox or something, I'd not the Tigers to play against him regularly. As for the money, its all imaginary numbers to me anyhow, that any of them make anywhere near what they get is pretty much preposterous. Miguel isn't worth $50,000 per at bat either, that is more than the yearly Median income for a household in Michigan and he makes it several times over per game?

I just updated my info at MLB for this year's renewal of Gameday Audio. It is the only way I get to listen to Spring Training games from Florida, streaming on the computer. I checked and there is a broadcast schedule too, for March/April, if anyone lives near an affiliate radio station that actually broadcasts the games (I do not). Quite a few Spring games once again. I haven't counted the days until they start, yet.

The formatting will most likely be horrible here, but I'll try.

I think the fact that he hasn't pitched a whole game is hurting him. Signing a hot shot that gets you five innings isn't all that.

I don't think anyone is biting on the $$$$$$$ contract that SB wants for him. If MS comes crawling back to us I'd say- sorry, but we're willing to pay $10 million less for you now.

I really hope he stays but if he leaves oh well, he should have taken the money when they offered it right?

I really like Alex A. I just wish he could get his bat going more often.

I hate that Porcello and Hunter are gone I really liked them!

I think after he (or rather his agent Scott Boras) turned down that huge contract last year it was pretty much assured that Max is gone. Somebody will pay him more than that huge amount the Tigers offered, even if they might be in the mix for bidding now. Tigers payroll is going to be outrageous, it is great that they are still trying to compete and not sell everyone to "rebuild" though...

Feels like the ghosts of the old Tigers from the late 80's early 90's are haunting the field! Now if only those ghosts of the 68 or 84 Tigers would step out!!!

Yes, our bullpen can be a bit of a worry at times. Let's hope it gets rolling soon!

Hi, I am new to this group. I love the Tigers. I cannot just pick one Tiger to be my Tiger. I enjoy watching the whole team. However, the bullpen is the only part of the team that scares me. Bummed the game was called off today, I religiously watch their weekend games. emoticon

Coke was better yesterday than Ortega, but yeah, it is about time, enough is enough. Unless he is to be the pitcher they use only when they are losing badly and want to save the rest of the bullpen arms, they need long relief for blowouts...

Anyone else agree that Phil Coke needs to go?

No game today? Whatever will I do? I was looking forward to last week's Detroit Tigers Weekly and a bunch of boring sports shows about baseball's Golden Age as I waited out a long rain delay... Really, does anyone actually watch those shows during rain delays? I'm glad they simply let me off the hook and postponed the game today.

It was a fun game from my living room, wish I could have been there in person. I was yelling at the screen, "Base hit! Go Go! Tigers Win!"

Related to a Tiger eh? Too cool. Will have to keep an eye out for him in future games.

Hope everyone had a nice weekend. Looks like the weather is decent for Opening Day. Go Tigers!

Luke Putkonen pitched a scoreless inning on Sunday, 3 up 3 down with 2 Ks. It was part of a pretty boring scoreless 10 inning tie at Disney Wide World of Sports vs. Atlanta. I like being able to listen to the games on Gameday Audio over my PC, I remembered him pitching Sunday but needed to look up the boxscore for stats.

Putkonen is my cousin. I hope to see him play some time, but he is a relief pitcher, so it is difficult to catch him in a game.

Yeah Ty Cobb wasn't very good with sportsmanship, but that's one of the many players I liked from way back when. I couldn't think of any others right off the bat. LOL!

I never saw Ty Cobb play (of course), but the impression I got from Ken Burn's documentary is that he had poor sportsmanship. Class goes a long way with me, stats aside. Miguel, besides a few alcohol fueled incidents , seems to be a classy player, always chatting with opposing players, a good guy in the clubhouse, not a big mouth to the media, stuff like that.

I honestly couldn't pick an all time favorite Tiger either. Too much of Tiger's history was before my time, or before I picked up the baseball bug ('04), so I don't know who is worthy.

Why Putkonen? Are you related to him?

I used to like Nook Logan, he was my Tiger. I was super bummed when he lost his job to the newcomer Curtis Granderson. Wow, I was so wrong.

I also liked Fu Te Ni, just because I thought his name is neat. He wasn't very good though.
