form of chicken
|6 days 21 hours ago||simon||
like may of the tiger pitchers, i think he needs to throw his fastball more and earlier in the count. most of the relievers too. they often fall behind then get torched on the hit me fastball.
i think jones needs to be fired. simon, soria and even joba could have benefited by throwing more fastballs.
|6 days 21 hours ago||cespedes||
is a way better defender
|6 days 21 hours ago||idk||
MD, sparty and purdue will be tough. the top 6-7 BIG teams will be good. the BIG will be much improved top to bottom next year.
|6 days 23 hours ago||VMart||
funny how nobody mentions him as being good. he had one bad month. he's been hitting the crap out of the ball since his return. at DH he has a few more solid years lleft.
|6 days 23 hours ago||at worst||
in 5 years miggy is the recent-years david ortiz at DH; a solid 4 or 5 hitter. maybe after VMart is done. dumb to trade him.
|6 days 23 hours ago||simon||
he is no better than hendricks, hammel or even wada. if the cubs trade for a SP, it will be a top end guy to make a deep playoff run.
|6 days 23 hours ago||no way||
tigers have way more young talent than the phillies had and the best overall hitter and best DH in the game. plus, arguable the best SS. a lot of $$ are dropping off the roster this year, especially with RPs.
tigers can sign a #1 P, closer and lefty bat and be in contention again next year.
all this said, if the tigers win 4 out of the next five, i could see thme buying a #2 or #3 starter and going for it this year. any trades will wait until the last minute.

i feel the same way about floyd's "wish you were here". could be a few minutes longer. i love how that song builds on the acoustic solo at the beginning.
|1 week 3 days ago||idk||
many of todays country is the closest thing to rock anymore
|1 week 3 days ago||and||
most don't play actual instruments any more
|1 week 3 days ago||agree||
that is why i think he will pick sparty, unfortunately.
|1 week 3 days ago||yep||
i have a msu friend who recently told me she got into UM but wanted to go to msu instead. said she had a 4.0 in high school. well, she is a secretary at a law firm here in chi for several years. not knocking that profession, but you don't need a 4.0.
|2 weeks 23 hours ago||somewhat agree||
i would be happy with any top 100 PG. if dawkins can improve his handle at all, battle won't be missed much. PG however...
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Iowa||
at home in 1984(?) against the twin towers of stokes and payne. 4 OT, i think, with UM pulling it out. might be the best home game i ever saw. 2 top 10 teams I believe.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||this really hurts||
but i am sure DD can find a lefty 1B playing backup duty on a team and give up next to nothing. i think you have to play out the month of july before you start selling. hell, they are only 1 1/2 games out of the wild card right now.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||like what?||
telling them they have to go to class?
|4 weeks 1 day ago||that ship has sailed||
JB, please get an elite PG. I couldn'T care less about any other recruits for 2016.
|5 weeks 21 hours ago||towns||
maybe JB can flip him.
winston i bet goes to msu too to create at monster class to rival kentucky. i hope not true though.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||well||
1. i don't think mattison was fired. hoke was. mattison was retained. lucky to have him in a reduced role.
2. baxter was usc's special teams coach for a several years recently. 2011 ST coach of the year. i am glad we have a dedicated ST coach and not just an after thought.
3. wheatley was a surprise hire, imo. many thought he would only accept a college OC position or go back to the nfl
4. zordich has no D1 experience but he has a few years as DB coach in the nfl.
5. durkin was not the problem at Fla. likely one of the top young DCs out there
so yes, as an entire staff, i couldn't be more pleased.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||still remember that||
rome deserved to get his ass beat. very similar to internet tough guys today.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||harbaugh||
many keep saying that they trust in harbaugh's ability to evaluate talent. however, it's not just harbaugh. he appears to have a great group of assistants too. i'm guessing this group of assistants is better than any other since Bo was the head coach.
to me the assistants are the difference makers and give me much more confidence in the coming years, even this year.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||ya||
I rarely saw a blackhawk hat or shirt here pre 2010. Worst kind of homers. The self proclaimed long time hawks fans had shirts with creases still in them. Very similar for the sox pre 2005.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||so||
I guess if the LA Kings win next year, they will be the new dynasty; 3 cups in 5 years iirc.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||sleders in TC||
been there a few times for their excellent buffalo burgers
|6 weeks 6 days ago||i guess i missed a lot of this||
primarily since i couldnt understand my calculus TAs anyway.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||ya||
it has likely been awhile since the state had 3 top 30 players in a single year.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||well||
then you will almost never get suspensions in the nfl for domestic violence, since the spouses are not going to cooperate with authorities in getting a conviction and losing that nfl contract.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||ya||
i still don't think miggy got his just due for what he did a few years ago
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I'm not||
I think he is being smart in picking a solid school for whatever major he is choosing for grad school.
