I think it will be interesting to see how DD responds. I think we'll see him add another bullpen arm. He usually seems to pull a surprise move every year too, so he might find a way to get Price or someone else we're not currently linked to.
Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but today is just the end of the non-waiver trade deadline, right? So trades can still happen after today, players would just have to clear waivers before the deal is finalized.

What happened on the second jump?
|4 days 9 hours ago||Didn't Triche play for MSU at one point?||
I seem to remember that. Did he transfer to Syracuse or play there his whole college career?
|1 week 16 hours ago||True||
Should have included them. Castellanos moreso than Suarez, but you're right. I'm not convinced that Suarez will end up being anything special.
|1 week 1 day ago||I thought the same thing about VerHagen||
But he just went on the DL today or yesterday.
|1 week 1 day ago||If we've learned anything in the past 10 years||
About the Tigers front office, it's that they're not very good at scouting prospects. Of the contributing players on the team, only Verlander and Porcello came up through our farm system. I guess Avila falls into that category too, but you're stretching the definition of contributing by including him.
In the rest of the league, is there anyone that we traded away from our farm system who's contributing to their new teams? Granderson comes to mind, but he's really dropped off in the last couple years. Garcia still has a lot of potential, but he's hurt. Anyone else?
Dombrowski has done a fantastic job of cashing in on prospects' future potential for guys who can contribute now. If I was a GM for any other team, I'd immediately say “no thanks“ if Dombrowski offered me a trade package including prospects.

Yes they were highly regarded in our farm system, but our farm system blows, so it's not saying much. Knebel has spent time in the majors and hasn't done much. Thompson may prove to be a solid pitcher in a few years, but may not. Soria has proven to be a successful pitcher. I like the move.

And I make fun of him all the time for being old.
Glad you had a good trip though. I was actually hoping you'd post a recap after your post asking for advice.
|1 week 5 days ago||Love me some Chobanis||
I have one every day with lunch. Good source of protein.

It means nothing. If you want to read anything into anything, Gardner is front and center.

I noticed that sub. Thought it was odd to use a sub like that in the first half. Was Johnson just gassed or injured or something?
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I haven't been able to watch||
I haven't been able to watch at all, and likely won't be able to watch the second half either. Can someone provide a summary? Sounds like we're really struggling, yet we've managed to keep it tied at 0-0. Is Belgium struggling just as bad, or is Howard just bailing us out? ESPN shows that we've got a 53-47 edge in possession, so it can't be that bad, right?

Want to play golf sometime?
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I don't live by many||
I don't live by many principles, but two of the most fundamental ones for me are:
1) I don't play golf with people who spell course "cource".
Nothing against you personally, but I think you can understand why I can't join you.

He could be the savior of the program.

Is anybody else having trouble with WatchESPN? I keep getting an error saying "Internal Authorization Error." I cleared my browser's cookies and it's asking for my cable provider credentials...but I get stuck in a loop when I enter them.

I will always say Denard.

I'm an American, so my team is America.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I'm exactly the same as you -||
I'm exactly the same as you - I have almost zero interest in club soccer, but really enjoy watching/following the USMNT. As far as the USMNT's B1G analogue, dare we say it is UM? I mean, nobody really expects UM to win the B1G this year, but it wouldn't be beyond reason for it to happen. You could say the same thing for this group. Portugal and Germany are easily the favorites to advance, but we're not completely out of it. Have to beat Ghana though.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||I think||
You underestimate Ghana...a team that actually made the WC. I agree that Turkey should provide stiffer competition than the last guys, but I expect Ghana to be better. If there's anything we should have learned in the last ten years, it should be to never underestimate Ghana.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||I BELIEVE THAT||
I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN!!!
|9 weeks 6 days ago||I've never heard of catty corner||
Until just now
|10 weeks 5 hours ago||Nah||
7 wins is the minimum Hoke needs to keep his job for another year. I think if Mich doesn't reach 7, he'll be in real trouble. 2015 is the make or break year for Hoke. If he doesn't have the team playing at a high level by then, he likely never will.
|10 weeks 5 hours ago||Yeah||
No matter how it ends up, 2 good teams will be on the outside looking in.
It's a conspiracy to prevent the US from winning a WC.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||As hot as Detroit is right now||
Oakland is just as hot. I fully expect that we'll have to get through them again to get to the WS. We've managed it the last couple years, but I always hate it when we play them. They're looking really good right now.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Fun team to watch right now||
Playing really well in all facets. Cabrera and Martinez just on fire.
Also, I have Peavy on my fantasy team and I benched him tonight. So bombs away boys, bombs away.

I can't be the only one who read that as "...the tendrils of the MGrowOld are pretty much everywhere." Was disturbed, then re-read.

Haha you've reached the point where people neg you on the spot! Consider yourself lucky!

|14 weeks 1 day ago||When you say players, do you||
When you say players, do you mean pitchers? Everybody knows that batters (legally) use pine tar. I highly doubt 80% of pitchers use it though, if that's what you meant. And how is it "targeting" the Yankees when it was so blatently obvious?
