Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

Edit: Mild Spoiler
I hope they kill him soon before fans begin to like his character. I, like everyone, called for Andrea's death since Dale saved her from the CDC and then when she finally died, I felt bad.
|1 year 45 weeks ago||Trade Ken Holland???||
Don't get me wrong I love Stevie Y but Ken Holland is one of the best if not the best GMs in the game. I know that it was under your pipedream request, but personally I think it would be crazy giving up Ken Holland.
|1 year 45 weeks ago||Love the Moose||
I love the Moose, but I'm thinking a trade is going to happen. I'm not sure if his lack of defense especially help side defense will be worth the money he will be getting soon. The front court is starting to clog up and I think building a team around Andre is what they need to do. J Smoove will cut into moose's PT anyways. Hopefully they can pull a PG trade off, I'll keep holding out hope for Rondo

In my two years of living on Mary we had some flooding, not this bad though. Can only imagine the Cross Street river flow that is going on right now
|1 year 48 weeks ago||ACGME merge||
Keep in mind that this is probably more true now then ever, with the ACGME merging with the AOA match both MD students and DO students will be competing for the same residency programs. Although this was true previously, DO students would have to take both the USMLE and COMLEX if they wanted to apply for a MD residency spot. Now with the merge, students can take their specific licensing exam and apply for either residency (this is supposed to go into effect during the 2016 match [my match year])
However, I have also heard that passing and doing an elective rotation during your 3rd and 4th year at the program you would like to match into is most important. Certainly rocking step one will do you wonders, but passing and then showing your possible directors that you are competant and able to work with and under them is most important.

Completely agree! Would love to see Rickie make a run at it with a low round again today.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||They probably didn't, I have||
They probably didn't, I have no idea. I just know his name was floating around as part of a deal the Tigers were rumored to offer.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||Prior to today he had given||
Prior to today he had given up 5 HRs in 5 and 1/3 innings. Pretty clos to a walking blown save as you can get in the last 2 weeks.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||Thats a good point, I'm||
Thats a good point, I'm hoping you are right. Locking Miggy up before he can even smell free agency is most important.
I honestly think the real blame here is not on Leyland but on DD for going into this season without a backup plan if Rondon wasn't ready. I think Dave is slapping himself in the face for not pulling the triger on the Hanaran Bosech trade as we obviously ended up getting nothing for that bum and Joel was pitching well for the Sox until he got hurt.
It's obvious that Jose isn't the long term goal, but I also don't think we see much movement via a trade till closer to the deadline. I would assume that with this crappy division that the Tigers feel like they will be ok running with Jose as they wait to see if someone emerges in house. If Dotel comes off the 60 day DL and can show to pitch the 8th they could move Benoit. Or if Rondon or alburquerque can start throwing strikes they will probably give them both shots before a big move is made. If none of that works they pull something off at the deadline and get some help.
Hell, with the Tiger's 4 man playoff rotation set without Porcello they may give him a few relief apperaces and see if he could close for them in the playoffs (just random thoughts about the Tigers to get me through the day)
I know he is coming off his 2nd Tommy John surgery but they may be able to go out and sign Brian Wilson cheap and give him a shot. I know I read that he won't tryout for teams until he is 100% ready but It has been about a year since his injury so I would assume he is getting close.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||Who else?||
Look I dislike Valverde as much as the next sensible Tigers fan but I don't think you can put this blame on Leyland. He has 25 men and only a few late inning relief pitchers. You can't have Smyly and Benoit throwing every day so we have to rely on Jose and Phil.
Hopefully Al can come back soon with the control he showed last year.
It's obvious this team needs some bullpen help and I have a sneaky suspension that we may be shipping Porcello to Philly for Papelbon
Edit: I should read through all the replies before I reply. The Papelbon money issue in interesting. I assume that Mike Illitch is all in and would be willling to pay the remaider of Papelbon's contract. Wouldn't be the full 13 million.
