    I used to follow Mize on IG but couldn’t anymore when I saw he was basically living life like Covid was not a thing.

    Guys, we can't spend any money on hitters until we develop 5 aces. Smart.

    Leonys Martin and Kyle Dowdy for Willi Castro has to be the best trade Avila has made

    we got more from than trade than we did in the Verlander, JD Martinez, and Upton trades combined.

    It's so fucking batshit. It isn't like the window with these pitchers will last forever, and there is very little positional help internally, so maybe start building now instead of tanking a couple more years.

    I like Fulmer as a reliever.

    I mean if Hinch starts winning I wouldn’t be surprised to see him leave if we don’t spend.

    He can retire and then coach again? He’s a top 5 manager in the league he ain’t gonna put up with no spending. He should be the GM too

    Meh, first start of the season no reason to rush anything.

    Maybe put them out there and pull him if or when he gives up a hit

    I missed the start of the game and didn't see the play, but according to twitter the ruling was a SB and an error that allowed him to go to third. They said he would have scored from 2B on the single, anyway, so the run goes as earned.

    Skubal had him picked off but the throw to Castro went wide. I think Castro shoulda had it but whatever. I think he was gunned down if Castro doesn’t suck.

    See that's why I don't like leaving him out there. Pull him after 5 and its a good start. Now a hit away from him not being in line for win and a tie game. Rookie in first start of season. 5 ip and 80 pitches was a good time to call it a day. Or pull him after the walk.

    This is where it's hard to manage. You're probably right, but we suck and Skubal needs to learn and go through that stuff, too. You don't learn how to go through the line-up a third time if you never get to do it.

    Robbie Grossman is the Tiger I've wanted for 15 years. 8 walks in three games.

    I wonder if the broadcast crew will bring up the tigers having 18 prospects in the top 25 as often as the redwings crew brings up glendenings face off wins?

    Pudge Rodriguez once walked 9 times in 515 plate appearances in 2007.

    Robbie Grossman has walked 8 times in 12 plate appearances in 2021.

    Mid-season I'm all for leaving him out there. But first start for a guy who is probably on an inning count this year and a fresh BP I think that was a perfect time to pull him after 5.

    I know I don’t want to see Norris come in after and promptly give up the lead. And then stay on the mound.

    One of those runs went to Skubal but still.

    In hindsight it was a big ask for Detroit sports to beat the Lightning and sweep Cleveland on the same day in 2021.

    The bullpen was disgusting today. Farmer hasn’t pitched well since last year. He was horrible in spring training too.
