…the more they stay the same.
I just finished a pretty good article by Rob Neyer. If you can get past the Yankee bashing, it’s pretty interesting. One thing he didn’t touch on was the brush back pitch, which hitters have been complaining about for the last century.
And for those of you who have made it over from my old domain, I say welcome. This should be the last move, as Tigerblog becomes about as official as it’s ever going to be. My thanks go out to Jay for making things very smooth as far as the transition.
The baseball season is completed, but baseball is definitely not done. Every day, more and more players file for free agency, have their options taken, or what seems to be even more likely, declined. And the Tigers, with Dave Dombrowski at the helm, have to build a baseball team for next year.
And for those of you who make it here on a regular basis, I’m going to be spending some time taking a hard look at each position, and what I think the Tigers are going to do to fill that spot. As the winter rolls on, I’ll update these position analyses so you can come back in February and have a pretty good handle the Tigers team as a whole.
And I’m hoping to learn a few things in the process as well. Maybe/Hopefully, there’s a hidden gem buried in the minors somewhere. The Tiger’s Hank Blalock, someone who comes out of nowhere and turns into a solid player to build a championship team with.
I’ll be looking at the catchers first, and then probably move my way around the infield. As always, your comments are appreciated.
