How Many Runs Will The Tigers Allow in 2018?

2018-02-05T09:13:23.681-05:00

The Tigers are hoping for a strong season from left-handed starter Daniel Norris (Photo credit: MLive.com)  Now that I have projected the Tigers runs scored total for 2018, the next step is to estimate how many runs they will give up.  While I have been quite accurate in my runs scored projections the last few years, I have not been so successful in forecasting runs allowed.  Run prevention is



How Many Runs Will The Tigers Score In 2018?

Third baseman Jeimer Candelario will be a key part of the Tigers offense in 2018. Photo source: MLive.com It is time for my annual runs scored prediction for the Tigers.  In a rebuilding year, it is typically difficult to make playing time projections, but the Tigers list of opening day starting position players seems pretty well set for a team in transition.  So, I will start with that..  



Hall of Fame Thoughts and Theoretical Ballot

2017-12-21T18:04:19.608-05:00

Now that our 1980s heroes Alan Trammell and Jack Morris have been voted into the Hall of Fame via the Modern Era ballot, there is a lot less HoF anger among Tigers fans. The historic 1984 team which went 35-5, won 104 games overall and won the World Series is finally getting represented in the Hall of Fame.  They had been one of only two championship teams prior to the 90s - the other being the



The Day I Bumped Into Jack Morris and Alan Trammell

2017-12-10T22:29:08.260-05:00

I have not posted anything on this site for a long time, but regardless of how busy my life has become the last few years, I have to say something about Alan Trammell and Jack Morris going into the Hall of Fame via the Modern Era committee.  The 1980s Tigers were my all-time favorite baseball team, so I am so proud to see that squad finally get represented in the Hall of Fame.  The historic 1984

The Tigers are hoping for a come back season in 2016 from right-handed starter Jordan Zimmermann.

How Many Runs Will The Tigers Score in 2017?

Tigers are hoping that a healthy Nick Castellanos will boost the team's run production in 2017 (Photo credit: Zimbio.com)   The Tigers seem to be pretty well set with their position players going into 2017, so I am going to make my annual runs scored projection. The one spot which is still up in the air is center field, but they are not likely to do anything prior to the season which is



If I had a Hall of Fame Ballot: 2017

2016-12-31T16:30:30.287-05:00

Former Astros slugger Jeff Bagwell should finally make Hall-of-Fame in 2017.  (Photo credit: MLB.com) There have been nine new Hall-of-Fame Inductees in the past three years - catcher Mike Piazza, first baseman Frank Thomas, second baseman Craig Biggio, outfielder Ken Griffey Jr and pitchers Tommy Glavine, Greg Maddux, Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and John Smoltz.  This alleviated the log



Taking a Break

2016-05-30T20:54:32.809-04:00

I have not posted since April 24 when I predicted that Justin Upton would likely start hitting soon. More than a month later he's still not hitting much, but I don't really want to talk about Upton here. I have been writing here since 2005 and have over 1,000 posts, but have not added much the past several months due to additional family and job responsibilities. I don't really have time for much



This Happens To Justin Upton Every Year

2016-04-24T12:27:49.424-04:00

When the Tigers inked outfielder Justin Upton in January, there was not much to dislike about the signing.  First of all, few were expecting another big move by the Tigers who had already reached the luxury tax threshold for payrolls.  He was just 28 years old and was coming off a three-year stretch with a 126 OPS+, along with a career 120 OPS+. He did sign for a lot of money - $22 million per



So, Now How Many Games Will The Tigers Win in 2016?

2016-03-28T21:26:58.856-04:00

During the winter, I crunched the numbers and arrived at 90 wins for the Tigers.  When I saw that other sites such as FanGraphs (81 wins) and Baseball Prospectus (79) were must less optimistic about the Tigers, I was thinking maybe I was being biased.  So, I looked at my projections again, but came to the conclusion that the Tigers were a better team than the more sophisticated systems were
