Detroit Tigers topics:

Looking back at an off season full of upheaval:

  • Are the Tigers a better or worse team as now constructed than the one which finished two games short of making the World Series?
  • Would you have preferred the Tigers had made one more run at a title with the team as constructed in 2013, or had the window closed on this group of players? In other words, did the Tigers need a shake-up?
  • Do you believe the moves were made due to salary concerns or a genuine need to re-imagine the roster?
  • Do the moves of this off season make the future of this team look brighter in 2015 and beyond?
  • Did the Tigers go too far, not far enough or did they do exactly what needed to be done in retooling the roster?

Looking back at the 2013 season:

  • What was your favorite moment?
  • What moment made you angriest?
  • To paraphrase former NFL coach Denny Green, were the Tigers who we thought they were?

MLB news:

  • When it comes to the dolts in the BBWAA and their Baseball Hall of Fame voting procedures, Al goes all Frank Costanza during the Festivus Airing of Grievances - "I got a lot of problems with you people!"

Birthday news:

  • Al, HookSlde and Kurt all sing ... horribly ... for Kurt's birthday.
