    Here’s Avila’s garbage response. So trading for a 24 year old with a 7.00 ERA in AA did move the needle?

    What trade has he won? No wonder why he asks for the moon because he gets hosed on every trade he makes

    What's his salary? Are we paying him like $250k when most GMs are like $2.5m or something?

    Bryan Garcia pitched 4 innings of 1 hit ball, walking... 6. Somehow still only threw 72 pitches. 36 balls and 36 strikes.

    I can't believe I forgot to go today. Planned on taking my son - Lou was my favorite Tiger growing up - and they've sucked so bad I just forgot about it.

    If he makes the Hall then I'll take the family to Cooperstown.

    the article says the MLB will be ruling on Avila’s petition to get Torkelson added to the list on Thursday. So we could move up a few spots (or even down based on his AAA stats)

    There are people who sincerely think the Ilitchs may have had something to do with burning down a house they could easily buy with the money they save by paying Avila $67,000 a year...

    Awful performance tonight. I’m team Hinch needs to go this off-season too, along with Avila. Team doesn’t play hard or hasn’t responded to anything he’s done this year. Just garbage.

    Imagine telling your 14 years ago self that there would be a Detroit GM coming down the road who would be around as long and be as bad or worse than Millen. I would have thought it impossible, but we got there.
