Of course, you already knew that.
Yeah, I am sure they will draft Torii again when they have the chance, they drafted multiple guys today they have already drafted before.

Trout is better than Cabrera.

Yup!

Now I wonder where his future career lies in: Baseball or Football? I think he's playing both sports there if I am not mistaken.

Also, predict when Castellanos will become our everyday LF'er. I'm thinking July 1st.

I don't think it will be that soon. Torii has that locked down for this year and next.

LF.

Torii has RF locked down.

Dirks is still a question mark in LF for the time being.

I posted this one the Tigers MLB.com thread..

Went 3-5 today with his tenth homer of the season.

His average is .295. YES, .295. His average was around .270 5 days ago.

He's batting over .400 his last ten games with 4 HR's (5 HR's in last 11 games), and 3 K's vs. 6 BB's.. Yes, we're talking about the same guy who K'd 118 times between Lakeland and Erie last year and walked only 36 times. He already has 30 this year.

He is improving every season, that's for sure. I've watched him play about 10-15 times this season. Every single out is usually hard hit. His swing is PRETTY. I mean, it is pure and he never looks bad when he gets up to the plate. He doesn't fly out, all of his BIP are line drives or ground balls. He has worked the counts up to 10 pitches sometimes.

Regarding the OF, he's looked fine. He's made all the plays he is supposed to. Sometimes he gets late breaks, but it is still a work in progress. He's better than Delmon Young and Ryan Raburn that's for sure.

I would rather see Nick Castellanos as our closer. Before I leave Michigan to go back to PA I may have to stop by motor city and cut off Valverde's arms to keep him from giving up any more 9th inning home runs.

Glad he gave up a dinger. That'll stop any annointed one talk so he can just pitch without hype.

You know you're in trouble when your team is being beaten by Don Kelly and Alex Avila.

I predict a well earned pie in the face for Mr Alvarez

Looks like the Tigers and Cabrera are close to a 3 or 4 Year extension, that probably also means that Scherzer and Jackson will be on there way out. Texas might come calling, .

Did you see Cabrerea throw his gum or seeds at Rayburn as he rounded third after the HR? Hilarious.

Getting rid of Scherzer would be stupid. Illich has money. Means if they like the guys they will spend what they need to in order to keep them.
