    Going to bat for the Kenny Rogers game, it was Sunday finale of the 3 game series the Tigers swept in June of 2006, when it was becoming apparent the Tigers were for real. By Sunday the crowd at Wrigley was entirely Tigers fans, the Tigers scored 6 in the first on their way to a 12-3 win, and Rogers pitched 8 for his 200th win that he punctuated with a double. It was a fantastic day in Wrigleyville.

    I showed up a half hour late for my second date with my now-wife because of JV's no-hitter.

    Gallaraga's imperfect game was amazing. I had standing room only tickets for the July 2006 game where C-Mo hit the grand slam against the White Sox, that was probably my favorite in-person moment. Also love Granderson's incredible home run saving catch vs the Red Sox in 2007.

    My claim to fame was buying tickets a few weeks in advance for the Tigers/Mariners series back in 06. Of course I picked the fucking game after the no hitter when Maroth or Robertson was pitching

    We need the Soto trade to get done so the flood gates open. Al has about 4 deals to make and probably needs all the time he can get

    That website is pretty fun to mess around on. It'd never happen but looks like fair return for the Skubal/Fulmer rumors would be the Jays #2,3,4 and 5 prospects


    Name Position MTV ($Ms)
    Groshans 3B 12.9
    Martinez SS 13.9
    Tiedemann LHP 22.9
    Zulueta RHP 10.1


    Total Value: 59.80

    Blue Jays


    Name Position MTV ($Ms)
    Fulmer RHRP 2.4
    Skubal SP 54.8


    Total Value: 57.20

    Keith Law released his top 70 prospects, and we only have 1 on the list now (Jung) and he’s like in the 60’s.

    we probably have one of the worst farm systems in baseball now. Unbelievable.

    Anyone who has ever come in contact with our starters should be fired. Al, you drafted them? Fired. Littlefield, you developed them? Fired. Fetter, you work with them every day? Fired. Barnhart, you call the pitches? Fired. Miggy, you patted them on the shoulder? Fired.

    We aren’t going to get anything useful for Fulmer because Al sucks, but that said, why the fuck would you let him pitch tonight?

    Hinch, you’re fired too.

    I've watched next to nothing this year and have only followed this thread. I thought we had solid prospects, but they were all hurt or too tired (lol) and that's why we sucked. Why would we be sellers again at the trade deadline? I mean, either these guys are going to be good and shouldnt be traded or they suck and no one should want them, right?

    Marlins got a top 100 prospect back for a 34 year old journeyman reliever while Avila waits on offers for Joe Jimenez like he's sitting on a prime Aroldis Chapman

    24 year old pitcher in AA with a 7+ era. Avila is so bad at his job

    lol at that return. Fulmer's not great by any stretch, but there's no way this return is the result of anything other than Avila pricing himself out of the market again and having to come crawling back to take whatever is left at the end. Just like with everyone else he's ever traded.

    He deserves Millen levels of hate but gets a pass because people just don't care as much about baseball

    At this point, Millen drafted Calvin Johnson which is better than any of Avila picks so far....so are we to the point where Avila is worse than Millen? He's drafted no "hr" yet despite a ton of high picks and took over a rebuild with some assets worth trading, Millen had nowhere near the level of assets to move.
