We need some legitimate help for cabby in the 4 or 5 spot. Maggs and Guillen are not going to be a headache for opposing managers in their thoughts of pitching around cabby. For all I care, maggs, guillen, Everett, Huff, Robertson, Bonderman, Willis, and Galarraga can all be playing for other teams next year, but unfortunately some of them are locked up for about 10 times the amount of money they are worth.

Quick question: Who makes more money?? Magglio Ordonez or Albert Pujols?? Who would you rather have on your team??

The whole mags mess goes on Illitch. The rest are just bad deals.

Great game last night. Just goes to show you how even these two teams are. At least the Tigs showed up and made it one hell of a game. Now if they had only put that kind of effort in against the Sox...... sad.gif

Love the Tigs - great pitching future - just need something to turn a "very good" team into a great team.

Nothing against the Twins - I can't stand the overspent East Coast obnoxious clubs - not much realistic hope the Yanks and Sox go out - but hope they do.

Now onto my hometown team...the Rockies...

Good effort this year Tigers - just not *quite* good enough in the end.

Wonder if JL is gone after this?

New season, New start! May the force be with the Wings this time!

I doubt it. Leyland had probably one of his best coaching jobs this season. DD could be out tho. Something is missing with this team. Gotta find the missing piece.

I'm ambivalent about Leyland. I like him personally, he puts his heart into it, and he does what he can with the players he is given. I don't understand alot of baseball decisions myself, so some things he does puzzle me (like pitching Figaro the other night, or yanking Porcello last night) but all managers do those things. I do have concerns about how his teams fade down the stretch every year. This is a recurring theme and it is very worrisome....

Fiagro was played because the previous monday game was rained out. It was not his spot, it was Porcellos. Who else do you want in that slot. Verlander, Jackson, Bonine, and Robertson already had their slot. Only one you can agrue with would maybe be Galarraga.

Leyland deserves to stay. He did a great job managing this season.

If any blame needs to be placed, look no further than the massive contracts Dombrowski gave to players that are dead weight. Leyland did the best managing job he could with the talent he had available.

My first request for next season is to make Ryan Raburn the starting left fielder. Trade Guillen, alternate him at DH with Maggs, whatever it takes to give Raburn the chance to play every day. We also need a leadoff hitter badly with speed so Granderson can move down in the order.
