The BYB staff talks baseball from a Tigers perspective.

MLB: Game One-New York Yankees at Baltimore Orioles Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome back Tigers fans. We didn’t get the big deal we were hoping for this offseason, but as the yearly scramble for odds and ends hits high gear, GM Al Avila and the Tigers have added some interesting names that will at least be solid projects for the new coaching staff.

We’ll talk Jonathan Schoop, Renato Núñez, and Nomar Mazara, and how the roster is shaping up overall. Finally, we’ll talk about MLB’s attempt to de-juice the baseball, and offer wise alternatives to make the game a more watchable product on the field, as well as a few ridiculous ones. We’re just days away from pitchers and catchers reporting, so while it’s still frigid in the northern realms, we can feel the first faint rays of sunshine as the 2021 baseball season gets underway.
