    Beer, you just said that cause he was available... right...you didn't even consider the stupid money, did you ?
    Good guess.

    Tigers hopefully put a weight clause in his contract. he carries a lot of weight for his height.
    Too much weight will affect his knees in the back end of the deal.

    Tigers have had success with larger players....

    Gates Brown, Dimitri Young, and Mickey Lolich come to mind.

    It looks like my source (whom I will never reveal) was right on the money. Sounds like you are jealous.


























    Thanks for the tip, Wiggles.

    Still wondering how the Pitching staff will shake out.

    We've lost Zumaya, Penny, Perry,

    Starters on staff are: Verlander, Scherzer, Coke, Porcello, Fister

    Relievers on staff include: Alburquerque, Benoit, Valverde, Schlereth

    We have other nameless rabble on the 2012 roster......I'm just not familiar with their histories.

    Staff could actually jell this season.........helping Verlander with the wins load.

    Let's see....

    Albuquerque is on the DL until at least mid-season. Coke is still in the bullpen.

    The fifth starter is at this point is still to be determined. Likely from Turner, Smyly, Oliver, Wilk, and Crosby.
    familiar names all. Or, some last minute acqusition.

    We still need a good left fielder, and a fifth pitcher, and a good 2nd baseman.

    But hey, nobody's perfect.

    Would the Cuban be a good pick-up for LF ?

    Yes, if he can hit big league pitching.

    Also, I think Illich just ran out of money.

    I saw Leyland's proposed lineup. We still need a leadoff hitter. Austin Jackson strikes out too much. I like Boesch at No. 2, but Jackson is terrible.

    I am hoping they pick up Juan Pierre. He can play LF and gives us some speed on the bases. He could also lead off and won't cost us a arm and a leg.

    That's an old wound. Prince needs cut his Dad off, not the grandparents. Unless the grandparents where meddling on Cecils part.
    You the man now Prince. Hit 52 bombs for the Tigs so your dad has nothing over you.

    Prince needs to grow up and mend fences with his pops.

    You're right, but you still got to get over it. It's family. Forgive and move on.
