If a team could use a LH hitting CF with some defensive ability, the Tigers are it.
Anyone else need disparaging?
Rogers Hornsby hasn't been a problem.
Unfortunately, this won't be hitting the non-center-of-the-universe cities for a few weeks. 100 at MetaCritic. Linklater's pedigree. Comps to Up and, now, the Coens. Expectations are incredibly high.
Is Valencia married to Gibbons' daughter or something?
Listening to the press conference, somebody asked Gibbons something like the following: "Were you happy to see Stroman bounce back with a great start after his mediocre start in Houston?". Honestly, somebody got paid to say those words out loud (might have been Barry Davis; all his questions sound like that). Full power to Gibbons for playing along and answering in cliche speak and not pulling a Gregg Popovich, even if that would have been more entertaining.

It puts me in mind of the film "After Life"
Went outside to talk to the neighbour about an hour ago. Just came in to see who won. Guess I didn't miss much.
Well, this month he has. He is now 1 for 22 in August. But he did hit well in July (851 OPS) after slumping in June (587), so it may be early to write him off entirely, especially with EE and Lawrie still out.
the players they want kicked off the team
All of this is to say that for some reason, I can see success from the likes of Jenkins in extra innings that I'm not sure that I could envision were he a starter. This position seems nonsensical. I concede that. And maybe my theory about suppressed run-scoring in extras is entirely without foundation. And maybe Jenkins would be a decent starter. But I can't see it despite not being able to argue intelligently against it (other than to cite his low K rate).
