It sounded like osu has both Corley and Victor higher on their boards, and that they were not likely to accept a commitment from Mitchell at this point...which opens the doors for the good guys

1. Michigan football
2. Tigers baseball
3. Michigan basketball
4. Lions football
5. Patriots football
6. Michigan hockey
7. Redwings hockey
8. Toledo Rockets football
9. Toledo Walleye/Mudhens
10. Pistons basketball
After the top 3 there is a big drop off, but I definitely still pull for and support those teams.

It's his list, butthole. I'm sure he doesn't give a crap what you think.

Identical to mine.
I was surprised that you were the first to take Leach. Are we over-valuing him, or is it because most of the people responding weren't around to acknowledge his abilities?

I would love to hear what a "contender" would give for Alex Avila. I love the guy and will always root for him, but he's not good. I'm not sure what he brings to the table.

Agree, but the poster said he'd rather be Oakland. I would not. Payroll has to be considered.

He doesn't throw 95. I'd bet the farm he hasn't thrown more than a dozen pitches over 94. He lives at 91-93 now, and it's not an effective 91-93.

Arrieta is VERY good. They're not going to trade him. He's arguably their best pitcher (he's Lester, but 2 years younger).

For what? We couldn't even get a few dozen baseballs for him, especially with that contract.
|1 week 2 days ago||The A's?||
In the last 12 seasons (counting this one) they will have only made the playoffs 4 times with only one ALCS (the Tigers sweep) in that same window. I'm not sure I want to be Oakland. Billy Beane starts to build a system, and then sells way too early.
|1 week 2 days ago||When should they have traded||
When should they have traded Verlander? He signed that huge contract just before the '13 season started (which was probably the real mistake) and then began to regress immediately. They couldn't risk trading him before that deal because they needed him to try and win a World Series. Trading him the year after he signed it wouldn't have been a great time either, seeing as many would have began to question his declining numbers.

It doesn't appear that the ACT should conflict with the timing of the visit. I cannot find anything that suggests an ACT is being give in early August, so that is additional good news.

And not at a UM game, but my freshman year at the University of Toledo I caught a ball at the end of halftime when the opposing kicker was warming up. Initially, I wanted to keep it, but a ball boy started running up the stairs toward me and I panicked. I chucked the ball toward the field from about 40 rows up and smoked Rocky, Toledo's mascot, square in the junk. He keeled over into a ball, as he never saw it coming. It was quite hilarious.

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one. I buy everything from my dog's food and bed sheets, to power tools and the dehumidifier I just purchased. With free 2-day shipping and regularly lower prices, why bother dealing with crowds or driving across town?

To be honest, I'm not sure. I hadn't looked it up prior to today, but I ordered the hardcover version for $14.66.

Out of curiousity, where did Justin Turner fall on this list? I thought for sure he'd be a top 20. I know Rivals had him as a 5 star (35th overall, I think) and Scout had him as a top 30 overall player.

I'm not sure I've done any "crazy" things Michigan related, but a few years ago the family went to Vegas for Thanksgiving. My brother and I took a red-eye to DTW and went straight to the golf course to tailgate for The Game. It was my birthday, and we broke the unbearable losing streak against the enemy. I was tanked. And happy.

I need a picture of this so-called chart. Do you have floor plans to all of the establishments you have patroned? Do you draw them on a napkin and file it away? I'm quite intrigued as to what you use this data for, or what it means...
|17 weeks 18 hours ago||Question||
I posted this in the last baseball thread, but was a little late and didn't get a response...
Is Jackson Lamb done playing both ways? More specifically, is he just a bullpen guy? I thought he had a decent freshman year with the bat...nothing spectacular, but showed promise. Now it seems as though he's only being used as a relief pitcher. Explanations?
