This is virtually impossible to watch
At least before it was we have good prospects coming up, we'll have money to spend when they get here. Well all of a sudden the prospects pool doesn't look too great, it seems our spending has a cap and a lot was used this offseason and we are worse than ever. I'll have no faith in this team going forward with this staff in place. I bought into the hype and got fooled again. Sure this team will be better as season goes on, but this team will never be any good without massive changes
Is Illitch announcing the Avila extension during next week’s home stand? Vinegar Strokes
Should be interesting series vs Oakland.
Lynn wrote some article today about how the Tigers need to trade some of their pitching to bring in depth. What exactly are our pitching arms going to bring in that can help on offense? Only one with decent trade value is Skubal.
And before I forget. FUCK AVILA - day 3
Yo smeegsgreen how many of the 5 games do we win against Oakland?
I'm glad they raced to promote Parker Meadows and his .230/.288/.525 line at West Michigan because of his 9 extra base hits. He's tearing up the Eastern League: .162/.304/.189.
it was like his 5th year at West Michigan lol. He sucks ass.
1 but I could see 0
Clearly, but he was having some very moderate success with his swing change and instead of letting him keep growing with it at A they decided to promote him to where he was guaranteed to fail. He's still slightly underage for High A and 2 years before a average age for AA.
Smoke and mirrors
Derek Hill bunting with 1 out.
matt Shepard “Hill does his job and moves the runner over”
next batter makes an out and the inning is over.
what a fucking clown.
0 runs through 5
Sometimes (checks notes) Paul Blackburn is just too good, guys.
Hitting coach needs to be fired. Somebody gotta be the scape goat
Unfortunately it won’t be Avila
Coolbaugh hit a cool .215 in the majors. While I'm not saying guys who sucked can't be good coaches, that's about what the team is hitting on the year.
I like Craig Monroe. I think he'd be pleasant to visit with.
Season is basically over on May 9th. 10 games out of first place. Would need to play .600 ball rest of season to have a chance to sniff the playoffs.
I honestly thought this team would be good, and we’d be seeing crowds like we did in the early 2010’s at Comerica. Year 7 of the Avila era, and we are losing 90 games, after promoting all your top prospects you’ve been raving about for years, and dishing out $200 million in contracts this off-season.
It’s quite clear that tanking gets you nowhere in baseball. It’s a built in excuse for an incompetent GM to keep his job.
FUCK AVILA- day 4
Game 2, we’re facing a first career appearance starting pitcher with a 7.5 ERA in the minors this year. The bottom will have fallen out if we don’t win that game.
We won’t win
He'll pitch 6 innings of 2 hit ball and strike out 8.
It'll end up being the best start of a short starting pitching career and he'll end up being a journeyman long reliever.
We haven’t scored a run in 27 innings
lets keep it going baby
I don’t think they’ll ever score again
not as long as Avila is the GM. Need to get rid of him ASAP
The worse thing that could happen is this team going on a winning streak. Even if Avila could somehow build a roster to make the playoffs, there is no way in hell he's good enough to acquire enough talent to win anything substantial.
Oh my god they scored
Also, scored two runs, each one was a sacrafice. Started with bases loaded and no outs.
Oooooh a home run!
Also, it would dong everywhere, in case you were wondering.
Opened the floodgates!
Faedo might have more whiffs in 3 innings than Mize has had in his longest career start.
Needs a trip to Toledo. And of course the piece of shit pitcher on the A’s is shutting us out.
We scored 6 runs in game 1 so obviously we cannot score 1 in game 2
nailed it. What a pathetic showing.
- Day 5
Another Avila gem from today.
