Just got home from my little weekend trip to Detroit and Ohio, was fortunate enough to be at the JV game on Friday... absolutely electric! Wow, seeing that beast pitch in person is truly incredible.

How in the world does Jim keep putting Raburn in the lineup? and at 6th?!? Time to take old yeller back behind the barn. He doesn't have it this year. He is a rally killer, every time he gets up he strands everybody on base, leaving the rest of the lineup scrambling to clean up his mess. Call up that Patterson kid from Toledo, he is at least hovering close to .300. Raburn is at a hearty .128

Let's just play whoever we play. There is no use trying to wish for a spot. It doesn't matter. I would rather beat all the good teams to win the cup then take the "easy" road there. Our job right now is to win games and get some kind of rhythm going. Who we play is who we play, bring on all takers. Every year we get into these discussions of who we would rather play, but honestly it doesn't matter in the least. Look at '06... any team is capable of beating any other team. When the playoffs start, every series is 0-0.

#2263880 2012 NHL Trade Deadline Thread - February 27th, 3:00 PM ET

We have been missing a bonafide sniper since Fedorov, Shanny, and Hull left. We have lots of guys who can dish the puck, but with Franzen not reaching his real potential of a 40 per year guy, we need someone who can finish.

Stats count a great deal, but how valuable is Granderson to the Yankees? they have A-rod, Teixeira, Cano, Jeter, Martin, Jones, Swisher, and Posada in their everyday lineup as well as Granderson. Take one out of that mix and you still have a first place playoff team. Take Cabby out of the mix for Detroit, and you have a .500 team. Simple as that.

Sox lost, Indians lost, we have a 9 game lead and pretty much locked up our first division title in 24 years! Booyah!

The non-waiver deadline is July 31, when you can trade a player for a player and whatever without going any further than that. Kinda like the NHL deadline. The trade-waiver rules mean that you must place a player on waivers before a trade. Then from bottom to top, teams in the same league i.e. AL or NL have a shot to claim him, followed by the other league, again bottom to top. If he is claimed, the waiving team can pull him off, let him go for nothing, or negotiate a trade with the claimer team. If he then clears waivers from all teams, he can be traded to anyone. In this case, he needed to only drop to the tigers, who then could negotiate a trade with the twins.After August 31, players who are traded are not eligible to participate in the post-season, like the Stairs trade in '06. hope that helps.

Fister looked solid. Nice to see Avila start to perk up a little bit. And with another Cleveland loss, the Tigers stretch their division lead to 4 games. Funny how winning games keeps that lead up, we should try to keep doing that.

#2200903 Kris Draper announces retirement

Posted by rwfan007 on 25 July 2011 - 01:06 PM

I love Drapes. He was a class act and a force with Maltby on the PK. Unfortunately, there is a logjam of players waiting to get into the lineup, and Draper was increasingly being sat last season. Not one single bad word will be said about Draper, but unfortunately careers end when you don't really want them to with the young guys needing to get into the game. He was a key part of the Wings for many years during our glory years winning 4 cups, and he will forever be known as a champion.

why ask this question if you only answer 80% of it?

#2025147 Wings' Goaltending Situation

Posted by rwfan007 on 11 August 2010 - 12:23 PM

I don't think Jimmy will have a sophmore slump. He is gunna be what, 26-27 years old? He has played full time the last 4 years in the minors and played really well last season with the Wings. He is a pro and knows how to handle playing 50+ games.
