I actually think Norris is good but yeah not sure what caused him shitting the bed and losing the game today.
The slap dick media is the worst.
They still suck ass fuck these cucks
How long is Goodrum’s leash? He has versatility but he’s broken at the plate.
He doesn't seem like he's very good offensively given his history and age. He's 29 and has a career OPS+ of 89. He's a reserve and not a great defensive one at that. And he's 2 years older than Harold Castro (also not good at anything, but walks less).
Why are both of Castro and Goodrum on the roster?
Goodrum is probably on the roster until Willi Castro proves he can play SS every day defensively. Harold Castro barely has the arm for 2B, and SS isn't an option for him. Zack Short is probably the next closest thing to a capable SS defensively above A ball, so I'm guessing Goodrum sticks around for a while this year.
Goodrum and Harold Castro are different players. Harold has some contact ability at the plate that for whatever reason people in the media and the front office like. He can't really play some of the positions they throw him in, though. Goodrum can't make contact, but can play SS and has some pop.
They won’t be in May if they can’t hit. Parades and somebody else will be called up. It’s pretty pathetic I can’t think of anybody else who would be a contributor on this team. Thanks Avlia.
Yes, I didn't mean they're duplicative of each other, although the Tigers seem to want to pretend that Castro is also a super sub, just that they both will probably never be that good enough to start. I can understand the value Goodrum brings to a roster, but not at the rate the Tigers try to play him. He's a utility guy rather than a super sub.
2 PM start time now
1st in the Central ... THANKS AVILA!
Great job today by Uranus. 4 walks and 6 runs allowed. It’s the 2nd inning
cut him after the game
The best part is that he's always sucked. There was no reason to expect he wouldn't suck.
Not a chance man. That was avilas big off season signing. Probably paying him $5 mil
Al just locked Illitch’s check box up in his personal safe since today confirmed we don’t have five aces.
Tigers have made Shoemaker throw 21 pitches through 2. Strong work.
Who is Derek Holland giving the belt to today?
Lol Baddoo grand slam
You gotta keep playing him. He better be in the lineup tomorrow.
Haven’t watched MLB in two or three years. Recently bought RBI Baseball ‘21 and started a ten year dynasty with the Tigers. Holy Fuck they are bad...not sure what’s worse, Xbox Tigers or real life Tigers
I did that last year, RBI isn't a good game. The Show is coming to xbox this year, it's probably worth eating the loss and buying it instead investing a lot of time into RBI
...picked RBI up for 20 bucks, should’ve seen the warning signs
The Show will be free on GamePass for Xbox users day one, so go take advantage of that. The game is out 4/20.
Wonder if he will be available at our comp pick
You think we pick again in top 5 next draft 2022?
Jim Bowden in the Athletic on Akil Baddoo:
"If the Tigers play the athletic Baddoo every day, he might end up being one of the best Rule 5 stories in baseball history."
We need to get Bowden a GM job so Al isn't the worst in the majors.
I thought victor Reyes was the best rule 5 pick ever
Big day for the rebuild. Let’s go Mize.
I’m predicting 2 runs allowed over 5 innings.
Hell yeah 3 strikeouts in the first.
should Cabrera have had that ball that was hit to him? I’m not watching.
No. It was torched off the inside of the bag.
Oh shit no one tell Al
Fuck. We are probably going to drop to 8 or 9 in prospect rankings. I bet Skubal graduates soon too
They interviewed Avila on 97.1 this morning and he said Baddoo would be top 30 prospect in baseball if they did updated rankings today.
Mize lately has looked good for 3 or 4 innings and things unravel.
Big batter here for him
He is trying to paint the corner with every pitch. Once he gets over making every pitch perfect, he should be great.
Fuck. Got lucky there
Gibby just screamed "Come on Jacoby, you can do it" like he was a fan screaming from stands
He also spends 50% of the broadcast talking about sending runners
He was talking about Candy but he was bitching about Jacoby’s 3 pitch K
Offense in MLB seems to be a lot easier when you have a team full of guys who hit a bunch of HRs like the Twins
Batting order generally isn't that big of a deal, but that's one of those things where Miggy is getting an extra AB in the 9th in a huge spot instead of Candelario and that's probably not what you want.
