OT: ALCS Game 6 Open Thread
I thought 2012 couldn't get any worse... I was utterly wrong.
So what now in all seriousness??? We are running out of time on Miggy's contract. We have maybe the most useless long term deal in baseball right now with Fielder. Hunter's time is about up... One year left with Martinez... Next year feels like all or nothing to me at this point.
High-face girl in the gif.
That's a whole lot of decisions that I'm glad I don't have to make....but let's pretend that I do.
Re-sign Miggy ASAP, make him a Tiger for the forseeable future
Extend Austin Jackson ASAP (he had a poor postseason but he has all the tools you want as a CF and middle of the order hitter)
Let V-Mart walk after 2014 and move Prince to full time DH and hope he becomes Big Papi 2.0
Either Trade Max this off-season or let it all out and hope we win the WS next year. If the latter is the case then we're only getting draft pick compensation for him, which isn't terrible the Cardinals are sure glad Pujols left because they used that draft pick on rookie stud Michael Wacha.
Use assets to acquire a few bullpen arms
Give Nick Castellanos a full season of AB's in LF and hope he lives up to his top prospect potential.
- $$ Profit $$
has improved this team every year and I wouldn't be surprised if he did it again this off-season.
However, to me Boston seems like they have the clubhouse rallying thing mastered. I'll give then credit where it is due: they were the better club in this one.
Oh I hate the Cardinals, I hope they get swept ceremoniously.
I've been waiting all series to troll, so here it is: Let's Go Red Sox!!!!!!
Terrible way for the season to end. This series only magnifies the deficiencies we have in the bullpen. Gotta shore that up.
was shoddy when the year began. The price for good bullpen pitching was just too high, everyone wanted Castellanos. Rondon ending the year injured hurt, he was your fireball throwing setup man this team needed.
The bullpen looked strong around August but injuries and inconsistencies caught up.this series was there for the taking, we made too many mistakes and couldn't hit with risp.
Needs reworking, wish we could get out of prince contract, he will be worse each year. I think Benoit is a FA. Resign him, rondon as your setup. Find a lead off hitter, Jackson should be moved down in order, not a lead off hitter, not sure our options for lead off, we can't afford ellsbury, thanks to horrible prince contract. Sign some guys who can move runners and not solely rely on homers...
Long term, why not Nick at third, Miggy at first and Prince at DH? You are better defensively and extend careers.
