in a moment of frustration, i remember a washed-up archie with the vikings throwing a 20-30 yard spiral underhanded while under pressure and caught by a receiver. blew my mind at the time.

curbstomped us at home last year. it's in minny this year. i certainly would not call that game a "should win" game. more of i hope we win that game. toss up game to me.

obviously never saw secretariat. no horse comes close. his records have stood for 40 yrs.

i wonder if this opens up ILL to lawsuits from former players.

i don't remember many thinking hoke was a better coach than RR. personally, mattison was the only coach i was happy about with that change. all of the others were a wait and see and hope.

get through your head. that is horrible advice for a two-year window. similarly, there are many college investment accounts started for children. a good strategy is to invest in an S&P fund when young, but gradually move to safer investments as the child approaches 18; ie. gov't bonds.

you can perform day-to-day activities w/o an acl. however, to do athletics, my knee was unstable if I cut left or right. one would need a good knee brace to get by.

having grown up in a college town, i think this is not good. iirc, the students get a rep on the city council. however, if you have students getting elected to city council, they likely are gone in a few years and don't have to live with the decisions they make. it may all sound good, but the residents living there for the long term have to live with those decisions.
sorry, but students often do not even pay income taxes in MI but in the state they come from.

imo, for a red zone target; similar to fauria with the lions.

tate could have salvaged that season after denard got hurt. he would have got plenty of PT as a backup.
|4 weeks 3 hours ago||ok||
tell me the last time the dodgers won a pennant????
and they always have a huge payroll. this year may finally end their streak of futility.
|4 weeks 3 hours ago||closers||
do you realize that nearly 2/3 of the closers on april 1 don't have that job anymore? closers are the toughest to get long-term consistency.

mccann >>>>>>> avila. even has a stronger arm. given his at bats, avila is one of the worst hitting catchers in decades the past few years. and mccann will only improve at calling a game.
they better dump avila and put that $5M to use elsewhere.
|4 weeks 4 hours ago||winning is not impossible this year||
although improbable. what if the following happens:
1. verlander and sanchez pitch closer to 2013 levels
2. norris becomes a solid #3 SP down the stretch
3. simon and #5 SP don't impload. help from lobstein
4. cabrera comes back in a week or two and the tigers score runs at toronto or ny levels
5. wilson does well in the closer role
6. rondon figures it out and hardy continues to pitch well in set up role.
all these things are possible. if 2/3 of these pan out, detroit could make up 4-5 games on the field and make the playoffs. that would be something, especially if they were to face off against price and the blue jays in the wild card game.

is my guess

i would take him over the entire royal bullpen, especially the past 3-4 years.
|4 weeks 4 hours ago||agree||
how many different all stars has detroit had the past 10 years? i bet they could field all 8 positions plus a few pitchers too. is it really his fault that the pitchers couldn't field in 2006 or a solid benoit gives up the bomb against boston?
DD did his part and still leaves a team with a ton of talent for 2016.

you are thinking of his son, mel farr jr. or possibly mel gray jr?

hit back to back HRs. one of the greatest mlb father-son stories ever.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||peppers||
is another woodson. he obviously is dangerous with the ball in his hands. that said, he can't be taking too many plays on offense. i would like to see him on every 3rd down on offense, if only as a decoy.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||cespedes||
he's not the only FA out there. DD (or avila) will field a solid 8 next year and get some pitching help.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||tigers starters||
are about 27th in the majors this year. i don't think it's crazy to think sanchez will improve on 4.60, Verlander on 4.80 and the #4 and #5 guys combining well over 5.00. norris and even lobstein would do better then that. that alone will mitigate the loss of price.
if the tigers sign a solid OF and front-end starter (both very likely with all the available cash), they will again be contenders. only the blue jays will have a better projected offense. plus they now have a few chips to trade.
and fulmer's stats at AA binghampton were better than all of the mets young studs when they were there; including degroom, sydegaard, matz, harvey, etc. he was a huge get for a rental.

Over $60M drops off the books for next year; price, cespedes, nathan, soria, davis, avila, simon.. assuming no cash was exchanged in these deals, illich even saves about $23M this year.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||totally disagree||
with your assessment. the tigers traded 3 rentals for 6 prospects who all would grade in the tigers top 20, likely. 2-3 will provide pitching depth next year. 2 have a shot at top of the rotation guys in the near future. that's a lot of added depth for little $.
also, nearly $60M of payroll comes off the books for next year. plenty of $ to add a top end SP, OF and closer. cespedes may want to come back. these trades will make the tigers contenders again in 2016.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||cespedes||
would be a great fit for the cubbies or giants too. both teams need to decide how serious they are in going for it.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||norris||
will be fine. most consider him a future #1 or #2 starter. I will settle for a #4 next year.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||yep||
i was there with my dad. got home really late. we even watched the yankings board their bus after. standing by yogi berra was surreal.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||osu||
will need to schedule a cupcake to open future seasons to mitigate these off season issues.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||hopefully||
norris becomes an immediate middle of rotation guy; boyd a situationaly lefty out of the pen. now trade cespede, soria, et al for prospects to rebuild the farm system.
nearly $60M in salary drops off the books in 2016, plenty of loot to get a front-end starter, closer and OF.

i much prefer that. i have always been against retiring jerseys.
