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 MZ 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!!!

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...

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.

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.
