    Team is straight up trash. Need to fire the hitting coach.

    Prior to today, when was the last time a team won a game without scoring an earned run?

    Hutchison lost the game because of walks.

    0 ER Game 1, 2 ER through 6 Game 2 against an abysmal Pirates team. Does firing a hitting coach really do much? The team is poorly assembled so just fire Avila? Vinegar Strokes

    7 years into the rebuild and we have one of the worst offenses and defenses in all of baseball.

    the saviors Mize and Manning suck and are injured. Not a good look.

    The first pitcher in Law’s top 100 draft rankings came in at 15. He tweeted the other day that eight kids with first or second round grades have had TJ in this class, so I guess it isn’t a surprise.

    Nick Quintana batting .211 in high A ball as a 24 year old. Clearly tired, and doesn’t suck.

    As we approach another summer of losing baseball in Detroit for the 7th straight season, gotta wonder if Ilitch makes a move here soon, or if he waits until after the draft.

    Not gonna be a good year for parking lot and ticket revenue.

    Lynn thinks we’d be a playoff team with Riley Greene. Has he not looked up the stats of Tork, Rodriguez, and Witt. What a fucking clown.

    On Twitter someone made up a quote from Bumgarner and in the quote on Twitter it even says under it "Bungarner didn't really say this"

    Shep read that quote on air as if it was true

    It doesn’t seem like we’ll be surprised and see this team performing well anytime soon. They are who they are. My prediction is Hinch gets scapegoated at the end of the season and Avila gets to hire his third manager and keep his job for another 3-5 years, selecting in the top 5 of every draft.

    I don't know if we even qualify for the lottery at this point, given our run of top 5-10 picks prior to this year.

    Ilitch firing Hinch and keeping Avila would be shocking to me. I don't see even a 1% chance that happens without some off field disaster that forces them to dump Hinch.

    Jackson Jobe gave up 6 runs today. Didn’t even make it out of the 2nd inning.

    meanwhile every guy taken after him is lighting it up. The next high school pitcher taken has like 40 strikeouts in 15 innings pitched, with a 0.00 ERA.

    As much as I’d want to agree, Illitch seems to be fine with who’s running the ship so I would expect him to side with the longer tenured employee

    If Avila fires someone, it's going to be to save face from the fan base, not because he wants to do it. And there's no way he's stupid enough to believe that the fan base would react better to keeping Avila/firing Hinch than vice versa. Ilitch sucks and is an asshole, but he's not that dumb.

    Not to mention in 14/15 right before that we traded away two guys who made all star games for Alfredo Simon and Joakim Soria (who we flipped a year later for JaCoby Jones)

    I think that was a Dombrowski trade. And we didn’t just trade a guy that made an all star game. Suarez is one of better 3rd baseman in baseball.
