you are thinking of his son, mel farr jr. or possibly mel gray jr?
|22 hours 2 min ago||seattle's ken griffeys||
hit back to back HRs. one of the greatest mlb father-son stories ever.
|2 days 3 hours 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.
|3 days 18 hours 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.
|3 days 19 hours 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.
|3 days 19 hours 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.

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 days 23 hours ago||norris||
will be fine. most consider him a future #1 or #2 starter. I will settle for a #4 next year.
|4 days 23 hours 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.

will need to schedule a cupcake to open future seasons to mitigate these off season issues.
|5 days 40 min 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.

form of chicken
|1 week 6 days 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.
|1 week 6 days ago||cespedes||
is a way better defender
|1 week 6 days 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.
|2 weeks 21 min 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.
|2 weeks 26 min 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.
|2 weeks 33 min 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.
|2 weeks 40 min 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.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||ha||
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.

many of todays country is the closest thing to rock anymore
|2 weeks 3 days ago||and||
most don't play actual instruments any more
|2 weeks 3 days ago||agree||
that is why i think he will pick sparty, unfortunately.
|2 weeks 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.
|3 weeks 1 day 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...
|3 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.
|4 weeks 3 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.

telling them they have to go to class?
