Holy shit. Massive upgrade. Let’s fucking go baby. We are so back.
I don’t exactly know a ton about him but Tigers twitter is really excited and white Sox is pissed so that’s a good sign
The difference in quality/talent between Shepard and Benetti is like the difference in quality between the Tigers and Astros. That's wild they actually did that.
Now please find someone besides Gibson, Monroe and Petry to stick him with.
This is probably the best acquisition made by the Tigers in like five years, sadly
I only really know him from Fox CFB games.
Never knew he had/has cerebral palsy.
He's done a bunch of ESPN national games for years. He was the guy who did their StatCast games.
FUCK YES! Huge upgrade.
his B1G hoops game with Hummel were excellent. this is an unbelievable hire. better than signing Ohtani to me
Please tell me they are going to hire a respectable name to work next to him. No more CMO or whatever trash we had last year.
Seeing someone link us as a team in the Yamamoto market has been very bad for me because I want him very badly now.
I'm pretty sure they only canned Shep. I'm guessing it's the same group of fools as before
Free agent predictions?
Not sure, but all BUSTS!!
I have no clue whether he'd be interested because he's probably back at MLBN now, but I'd love to see the Tigers go after Sean Casey as an analyst.
An overpay for an average pitcher and a bunch of bargain bin guys...
Kind of hilarious that the beat writers are tweeting about this zoom call announcing Benetti like it's a major free agent signing
It’s practice for when we splurge to sign Yorvit Torrealba
Probably most money we spend this offseason...
This sounds like they bringing back same losers as last year.
You got Jason Benetti. Be happy. He’s going to make whomever he’s sitting next to sound better because he’s that good.
Dickerson is good at this too i think ...
he should take up coaching. i'd freakin run through a wall for that guy
Dickerson is simply good at TV and mediocre at radio, but wants to do radio.
I can't believe we went from Shep to Benetti. Great get, but you have to upgrade the color analyst, too. It will be a big change actually listening to the Tigers announcers when I watch Tiger games on mlb.tv now.
Defensive stalwart confirmed
Future Vinegar Strokes bust call out
Why aren’t we in on Ohanti?
he’s not worth it if he can’t pitch
Because we're cheap and i don't think he'd want to play here
Tigers 40-man moves per Baseball America:
Detroit Tigers (40)
Added: RHP Keider Montero, C Dillon Dingler, RHP Wilmer Flores.
Analysis: Montero was an easy addition decision, even if his surface-level statistics (15-4, 4.66 between Double-A and Triple-A) may not indicate it. A starter who reached Triple-A this year, Montero has a mid-80s plus slider to pair with a mid-90s fastball. That combination should at least make him a useful reliever, although the Tigers can be patient and see if he develops as a starter. Dingler has long been lauded for his glove and arm, but has struggled to stay healthy and to hit. He reached Triple-A late in 2023 and is a viable backup option for now with a chance to develop into being a more well-rounded backstop if his bat develops further. Flores is the younger brother of Giants shortstop Wilmer Flores. He had a breakout season in 2022, but didn’t fully match that in 2023. He profiles as a back-of-the-rotation starter with above-average control.
This dumb fuck still uses AOL
Finally got rid of Meadows and Turnbull. Let’s go
Turnbull is 31? Man, he's shitting away his career.
Looks like he's made $5.9M over his career with $900K of it coming in 2014. You'd definitely think a 31 year old MLB player has made more than that.
Yeah, and being a malcontent at 31 makes it a lot harder to get that next contract than being a malcontent at 27.
Nick Senzel was non-tendered by the Reds. I could see him being someone Harris would target as a possible platoon or stopgap 3b/2b option.
He’s the exact opposite type of player he would target. He doesn’t walk, and we already have an equally shittier player in Maton.
And Senzel's hurt all the time. They would know more about Senzel than me, but I have no interest in Senzel.
Fuck this little bitch. I hope he blows out his arm and is never able to play any kind of professional baseball again. He manipulated the entire thing last year from the time we originally sent his ass to Toledo back in April
Huge loser and fuck him
Is that Dawel Lugo's brother? Glad to see we bargain hunting again at 5 Below.
The Detroit Tigers have "serious interest" in free-agent right-hander Kenta Maeda, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
The Tigers want to establish themselves in the Japanese pitching market, so signing Maeda to a short-term contract — and giving him a first-class experience — would help set the foundation for future deals. He would provide a much-needed veteran presence on the young pitching staff, as well.
It's unclear if Maeda is interested in the Tigers.
If they want to establish themselves in that market, they could also pay market price for the most talented starting pitcher on the market who is only 25 years old. But why do that when you can sign someone much worse for much less?
