Default 2014 Tigers

Pitchers and catchers reported today to lakeland. First workouts are tomorrow. This year is world series or bust . The team has to win it all this year and I think they really will. I like the look of the team much better than years prior. Thoughts ?

I don't think they will win it all, but I'll do my best to enjoy watching them.

If Nathan can have another year of stats as the closer like he did last year in Texas and if Joba doesn't shit the bed, like it's totally possible for him to do, this will be a great team.

I hear talk that Nelson Cruz might still be signed by the Tigers for the outfield and even without his PEDs this season, his added offense would be nice. But Hunter, Dirks, and Jackson are a nice combo in their own right, especially if Dirks keeps steadily improving like he has since coming on.

I think Baseball Prospectus has the Tigers pegged to have the most wins in either league this year so it should be a fun season. Right up until we blow it in the ALCS anyway.

I'm glad we dropped the anchor known as Prince. He just never fit in here. It will be good to have Miggy back at 1st and hopefully Castellanos can get the job done at 3rd.

The only change I'm sad about is that we let Jhonny go, even after all the slow starts, streakiness, and the suspension I was still somehow always pulling for him.

I am really torn this year.
I hate that we got dick for Fister. I love that we got rid of Prince.

I am still not real happy with left field.
I am still not real happy with Smyly's role.

I am pretty happy that JV is banging Kate Upton.

The Fister trade wasnt the best. But who else would they have traded? Ricky P? I dont think they could have even gave him away with cash for nothing in return. Drew will be good plus hes cheap. So Fister made sense to let go to make room for Drew.
Fielder sucked here all he was good for was letting the rookie bang his wife. And allegedly that why Miggy got hurt breaking up a fight between Garcia wnd Prince. The infield will be great. And for the first time since I dont remember when the tigers have speed! Bought my season ticket package and cant wait for opening day.
Maybe ill do like the SEAHAWKS fan and get a Tigers world champions tattoo.

From what I have seen so far I really like Ausmus. I like that he wants to evaluate each player before saying they for sure have the position they are scheduled to be at.

Lots of questions about this year:
Will Scherzer have another year like last year?
Will JV return to previous years form?
Will Ausmus be an effective manager?
Will less power and more speed be a recipe for success?

Here is my guess

No, but still a solid #2 pitcher
Yes he will, or at least better than last year
I hope so.
I think it will make them a better team

I don't think that there is a lot to be excited about this year. In this off season they have down graded the starting pitching rotation, the bullpen is about a wash from last year, and they have significantly downgraded on the power aspect of the offense. Even a mediocre Fielder last year still hit 20 dingers and had 100+ RBI. It will take two guys to fill that roll now. They lost average and power at short stop without Peralta, and the addition of Kinsler added only speed as his offensive production isn't really any better than how Infante performed last year. I suspect Sherzer will find a level between last year and years prior and who knows if Sanchez can maintain an ERA of less than three when his lifetime numbers suggest an ERA of closer to 3.5 is about normal.

Factor all of that with a rookie manager, and the fact the Indians only finished 4 games back last year in Francona's first year as manager, I think the division is gonna be tougher than we give it credit.

It does but my season tickets are third base line and row 28. Always wanted to sit behind home plate for opening day and she hooked me up. As far as my season tickets I might list them for sale. If my parents cant make it to the game.
