"He makes it really easy on you as a coach because he has tremendous football instincts," Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh said. "Things come really naturally to him. He doesn't have to see things too many times. He has a good sense for how things should look and feel, and he's a tough, physical guy."

The Tigers, barring a veto from owner Mike Ilitch, are going to surrender and be sellers within the next 10 days at the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. For the first time since 2008, the Tigers have no choice but to inform teams that two of their marquee commodities will be dealt by the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.

The Tigers are in a unique position in that they have six free-agents-to-be — including two elite ones in ace David Price and slugger Yoenis Cespedes. Closer Joakim Soria is a shade below. They also have three pieces that could help the right contender in Rajai Davis, Alex Avila and Alfredo Simon. The market this year is as rich with buyers as ever, and the Tigers are the seller with the most appealing inventory.
From the Simeon program in Chicago, infielder Lorenzo Elion has given a verbal to join the program in 2016.

PBR had a writeup from about two months ago:
Athletic 6-foot frame with plenty of room for physical development. Defensively showed athletic actions, moves fluidly and consistently fields the ball in rhythm. Shows present arm strength with athletic arm action. Offensively, hits from balanced setup with quiet mechanics. Utilizes slight leg lift to create rhythm and timing. Demonstrates advanced bat speed with some length in swing.
The Joe Buck drinking game is simple. Every time he acts like a douche, take a drink. We'll all be dead by the bottom of the 2nd.
Harbinger of things to come or fool's gold?
