Tigers made a trade. Nothing to special.

Andy Oliver for C Ramon Cabrera.

Quote:
Cabrera is a 23-year-old switch-hitter who hit .276 with three home runs and 50 RBIs in 112 games with Double-A Altoona during the 2012 season. He would likely start the 2013 season with Triple-A Toledo if the Tigers do not make a move to acquire a backup catcher.


I like it. Nothing major maybe but C depth in farm non existent


I'm looking forward to baseball season.

As we head into winter I can't wait to be sitting in the stands with the sun shining down.

I miss summer so bad and winter hasn't started Crying or Very sad


I hear ya. Like 50 today and calling for 15 and snow Sat. Weather here is so up and down. Makes for really bad road conditions for our travels. Plus sun going down by 430 winter versus 10 in summer here


I hear ya. I've driven my whole life in crappy winter conditions. We're in the middle of freezing rain season here.

If it weren't for health care coverage and what it would cost at my age I would probably spend eight months of the year further south. My health care doesn't cover me in the U.S. however my additional coverage through work provides 100%. I have to look into what coverage from work applies in retirement. I know my prescription costs are covered but I lose my dental benefits.

I always joke that when I pass I'm tracking down my grandfather to find out why the heck he left Missouri to immigrate to the frozen North. Missouri might not be balmy but its a great deal warmer than here.

I hope to get out your way this summer. I haven't gotten to Montana in about seven years. It's one of my favourite places (in the summer). We are heading home for the Calgary Stampede and if we have time I wanti to spend a few days in Glacier National Park.


Glacier just but down road. You can't get to all parts if u come too soon after winter. I haven't gone yet. I like living on the Missouri. The trips out to field are a lot better view then Wyoming was. Honestly the best view was the few days of fall with the trees along the Missouri.

There is a ski resort up the road a bit too I hope to get my son to as well.

He just got his license so trying to break him into winter driving and such is stressful as parent


I understand. When the girls started driving the first few winters were nail biters.

Which ski resort Teton Pass?

There have been so many ski operations opened. When I was younger me and the boys hit Whitefish a few times and had a blast.

I really like the older ness of Montana. Lots of space, great hiking and climbing opportunities. I think I spent parts of every summer when I was a kid in Montana. I spent a great deal of time in Sandpoint and Coeur d' Alene Idaho as well. Both beautiful spots. My Grandmother was from Bonners Ferry.



It's called Showdown. About an hour outside GF. Glacier about 3 hours. Yellowstone about 6. So right in middle of all. Plan is Yellowstone this summer if tempo permits. Aunt and Uncle have couple cabins in Cody which is close to Yellowstone.

All this outdoor stuff is why I was looking at the new truck. Some places mine can't get. Lot of exploring here to be had once I am able to get out and do some things.


You will enjoy Yellowstone. It's a really nice park. I was there when I was quite young. My great grandfather helped to build the main lodge and my father felt it was important that we all see it. Needless to say I have a greater appreciation for it now than I did then.

My goodness the Pistons suck.

It's like watching the Lions in the really, really bad years. It seems like it is longer than four years since the Pistos were good.

Bring back Laimbeer, Vinnie Johnson, Isiah Thomas, Rick Mahorn, Joe Dumars, John Salley, Denis Rodman, Mark Aguirre.

Even in old age they might win more games Laughing

They do, but there really is no quick fix with them. They needed to shed salary, and fill the roster with young talent.

It's hard being a NBA fan, because 85% of fans know their team has absolutely no legit shot of winning it all before the season begins.

Monroe and Drummond provide a sense of optimism that'll at least keep my interest. We haven't had that caliber of big men since Lanier. Hopefully Joe does something special with his new found cap space after the season has ended.

Yup. And with every loss this year, I get a pinch more glimmer of hope.

What do we go for in the draft SF or SG?

Has to be. Hopefully a SG because the SG talent in this draft is so much better than the SF talent. If we dont end up with Shabazz Muhammed, Ben McLemore or Marcus Smart, than this would be a bust.

Pistons are rough, I've been watching almost every game so far this year with no Red Wings.

The good: Singler looks like a legit player in the NBA, not a star or anything but a good bench/role player maybe a fringe starter. Andre Drummond physically looks like he belongs in the league. Getting a good feel for making plays around the rim lately(though we knew that was his strength) and his size alone clogs lanes but he's also a legit shot blocking/altering threat. Jason Maxiell looks like he can be a solid role player, possible trade bait. Brandon Knight is still getting better. Greg Monroe is what we thought he was, he's been a legit threat every night. Bynum/Maxiell/Daye/Maggette all come off the books after this season freeing up like 25 million or something.

The bad: Rodney Stuckey has taken major strides backwards imo. He's a bit too selfish with the ball and seems to ruin alot of team chemistry. Tayshaun Prince, isn't being the role player he should be, often times trying to create too much or take the important shots instead of the younger players taking that role and developing that killer instict in their games. Jonas Jerebko, he's only a bench player, I thought he could be a fringe starter type but he's more of just a solid option off the bench. Charlie Villanueva, still on the team. Lately though he's just been instant offense off the bench, missing a ton of shots still though which sucks. No real go to offensive threat. Greg Monroe/ Prince/ Knight all are good options but none are or have been the consistent go-to scoring threat most good teams have that help them get out of scoring slumps an maintain leads. There isn't really one player the Pistons have that you have confidence in going out and carrying them for one game, or even one quarter or even one single drive.

With all that said I hope the Pistons draft Shabazz Muhammed. He'll be that explosive player able to score consistently and when needed imo. He's the perfect fit for what the Pistons need. Not to mention he's got Super-Star potential written all over him. I think Pistons will need the 1st or 2nd pick to land him though. Another few guys I'm really high on right now are C Alex Len from Maryland, Cody Zeller, and SG Archie Goodwin from Kentucky.

I have said it in the BBall forum, but we need a PG more than anything. Knight looks like a generic version of Stuckey to me. He is a shooter who brings the ball up the court. His TOs are way to high and his Assists are way too low for us to be good. We need a floor general. A wing would be nice, but we have a lot of Wings and shooters, no one to get the ball to them.
