With Valverde....anything is possible, such as losing when we are 5 runs up.

I know. You just want to believe he might be able to get the job done now and then. He is soooo disappointing.

Cut Valverday, yesterday

Drop Kelley to AAA when Jackson comes back

Trade Dirks for a SS with range (in case Peralta is suspended down the stretch, don't need one that can hit)

Start Garcia in Left

Keith Law said there is "zero" chance that our second pick will remain a starter. He said it was more for development reasons.

I hope he's right. We don't need another starter right now. We desperately need a bullpen shakeup. Valverde needs to be just a bad memory.

I love Dirks, but he can't hit consistently.

Was at the game tonight.....fun and exciting atmosphere tonight! Got it a little rough after the HRs given up by Velverde. Pulled through to keep the W though!

Nice to see Martinez starting to heat up now!

we might not need one right now, but we will for the 2015 season

Scherzer is a free agent after next season and there is just no way that we'll be able to pay him what he'll be looking for in a new contract

Thought I'd chime in being a Tigers fan and all.....

I like Dirks, but he hasn't been consistent at all. He hit like crazy last year and then got hurt. He's been hurt quite often actually. Avisail Garcia is playing well and is hitting the ball. When Jackson comes back I wouldn't be surprised to see him sent back down though. I just don't see Leyland getting rid of Kelly or Dirks to keep him up. I may be wrong, but I guess we will see soon enough.

I think everyone has the same opinion of Valverde....Nice win tonight though....

I'd send down santiago and keep Garcia up. Kelly can play infield. As bad as his bat is, he can play every position which makes him impossible to dump.

That's exactly it...Kelly can play any position, plus Leyland loves him. Santiago is a solid infield guy, so I don't know if he would go either. It just seems like we have too many outfielders and one of them will probably go. They have also said they would rather have Garcia get consistent at bats and playing time in the minors, instead of playing here and there in the bigs. Like I said, I like the guy too, but just have a feeling he will be sent down. Hopefully I am wrong.

You think they'd send him and keep tuiasosopo? If so, you're probably right. As much for his development as anything else.

Yep...for development. Tuiasosopo has been decent and has some pop in his bat.

unfortunately I agree with you, Leyland has proven time and time again that he is loyal to a fault

Really no reason that Dirks or Kelly should still be on the squad with guys like Garcia in the organization, but with Leyland's history, there is also no chance that Garcia stays with the big club over either of them

unfortunately

I was REALLY upset when Leyland decided to come back this year, was really hoping for Francona (who is also an Arizona alum, which is part reason I wanted him)

These guys aren't coming to the majors now, if ever. Remember 2008? This draft reminds me exactly of that, a ton of relievers, and all of them were awful.
