You don't consider a top 50 prospect a top prospect?

Not sure I do. Top ten yeah but 48 .. no. I mean it's JV. We got Fulmer in the Cespedes trade. And he was just a two month rental. I mean it's JV.

Tigers are paying the Astros $8 million each of the next two seasons, $16 million total. Verlander makes $28 million in each of the next two seasons.

2 F'n cunts Al Avila and Chris Ilitch. Just cut out the collective hearts of a sizeable part of the Tigers fan base.

Trading Upton and Verlander should absolutely get the Tigers under the payroll tax. If not...well....I am speechless.

Was that their primary focus? For a family who are billionaires what's a payroll tax to them.

I'm happy for JV. We weren't gonna challenge for anything in the next couple years and I'm happy to see him go to a team that I don't hate and have that chance. We are in much better shape for a rebuild than we were 3 months ago. It sucked that the market just wasn't there for the JD trade, but these other 3 trade the return was acceptable imo.

I'm happy for him, but I'm sad for me. Such a great player.

The Tigers have been losing money for years. While they were/are losing money (and other teams are making millions), they are not putting it into infrastructure and player development. It all adds up. This contributes to the Tigers farm system being one of the worst, if not the worst.

People honestly think people who are rich can spend the money anyways. Most didn't get rich by making bad business decisions. While I am all for supporting my wife's business ventures, I am not going to jeopardize my retirement in the process. It is a fine line sometimes.

Now, based on what they originally had as a payroll going into 2017, DET was going to lose roughly $60 Mil (including the payroll tax). While they still are probably going to lose money in 2017, it is closer to break even mark. It's one thing to lose money and be in the hunt. Is another to lose $60 Mil for the 2nd worse team in the AL. Additionally, losing money effects franchise value.

Unfortunately, I haven't heard any updates on the DET TV deal. It cannot be good news. And these past 2 deals certainly don't help.
