Stevie Y with the assist!
Like this should terrify me, but also, it’s the Captain.
This is why I could never be a beat writer, because after he said that I would have derailed the presser and asked Ilitch 8 follow ups asking him to explain how and why his hockey team president was involved. Because it might be a completely reasonable thing. But it could also be incredibly stupid and I'd like to know which was which before I moved on.
It's better than Rod Wood coming out of the family office to help hire a shitlord idiot.
Harris today: “we must dominate the strike zone “
Harris after Baez first game: “Hello Giants, can I come back?”
So are we to assume guys like Garko stay in place, at least for the first year or two?
I don't think that should be assumed. And the timing of this hire makes it more likely he fires people and brings in a new crew than if he was hired at the end of October from a timing standpoint.
I do think some of the recent developmental hires were pretty well regarded in the industry, though, which means he might be more likely to keep at least some of them.
Does this mean we are getting rid of the Castros, and every other shitty player on the roster?
He pretty much came out and said the rest of MLB thinks the Tigers farm system and player development is a joke
The league might think that, but I think it's more likely he's using the Giants as a cover to not answer a question that he didn't want to answer.
Here are walk rates among our regulars. I doubt they move Baez, unless they eat a lot of money. Hopefully we get rid of both Castros, and I can see Candelario being non tendered. Schoop will get released. You can’t bring him back. Now that rosters are 26 players, you can probably waste a roster spot on Cabrera, but he should probably be forced out/retire.
Schoop - 3.6%
W. Castro - 4.0%
Reyes - 4.0%
H. Castro - 4.0%
Baez - 4.7%
Cabrera - 6.3%
Yzerman has said he likes to learn from successful programs so I’m guessing he had to travel to Chicago to find a functional MLB franchise to study.
Tork can’t hit a fastball. Maybe Harris trades his ass?
We're basically the best team in the league since Harris was hired. Watch out in 2023, MLB
I have not paid attention to the team since Harris had his PC, but I just saw that Manning has some arm fatigue. What could go wrong?
Maybe Harris can get a 2nd round comp pick for him. Nice to see the highest positional prospect over last 10 years is a bust. Thanks Avila
silver lining is everybody picked after him has sucked ass. One of the pitchers had an ERA over 10.00 this year lol.
Better not play more than 1 or 2 days a week, and should be batting no higher than 7th.
That's fine, who cares. Next year won't be much better than this year, and when he breaks down he'll retire and have a day in August.
not sure how you can make that assumption. Division sucks. This team can easily contend next year if the right moves are made.
playing a negative WAR player multiple days a week though is not going to get you towards that goal.
All the pitchers are hurt and will remain so.
all those guys sucked anyways. They’ll have to sign some FA.
GoodForAnother I’m afraid Vinegar Strokes has been hacked. Can you fix this issue?
Spartans are so bad it's breaking his brain
Shit. Lynn Henning agreed with me. I change my mind now.
Verlander gonna win another Cy Young. Maybe we can hang a banner for that?
Does he go into HOF wearing an Astros cap?
Hell yeah Avila. Congrats
Should be fun off season.
Hopefully Harris cleans house.
Of course this clown waits until after the season is over to go off on the Tigers. Please fire this whole broadcasting crew
Complete clown show
Hmmm... did Hinch get the "fire all your assistants and we'll bring you back" talk?
Fire Hinch too. He hired those guys, and lost like 96 games this year
No chance, IMO. Based on the quotes from him and Harris, he was very involved in the process of hiring Harris.
Coolbaugh and Hessman were always going to go after this disaster. Santiago was just a holdover from the previous regime he kept around. I think he and Paul had a previous history so he's the only guy who is a surprise at all to me.
Nice. So when do we fire David Chadd?
This guy has now taken two separate teams to the World Series since Ilitch fired him lol
Thank the heavens we are making changes removing anything resembling Avila’s input - now got to fire David Chadd
We have won the off-season
Now we just need to fire every single scout on staff. How many guys is that?
Vinegar Strokes is truly down to the vinegar strokes rn.
