Detroit Tigers Farm System Showing Major Improvement

Perez, Franklin.jpgAs much as I’d like to knock Al Avila for the return on the J.D. Martinez trade, the Justin Verlander trade and Alex Avila/Justin Wilson trade seem to be working out very well for the Tigers, or at least their farm system.

Most Recent Cycle Hit For Each MLB Franchise (Updated For Jose Abreu, September 9, 2017 )

Abreu

The White Sox future looks bright and present has a big highlight!

Sure the Giants and the White Sox are basically just playing out the string. But don’t tell Jose Abreu that. He legged out a triple and completed the cycle against the Giants.

It was the first White Sox cycle since Jose Valentin. The last White Sox cycle hit by someone with a first name OTHER than Jose was Chris Singleton in 1999.

Lots of young talent on this White Sox team. Maybe next Abreu can lead them to more wins.

Here is the list, updated for today’s action!

This Day in Milwaukee Brewers History: Robin Yount’s 3000th Hit

Robin Yount said on the leadup to his 3000th hit that it wasn’t going to be a big deal.  The man who took more pride in his Milwaukee Brewers winning ballgames than personal stats found out he was wrong – the 3000 hit plateau was a huge deal.  On September 9, 1992, a crowd of 47,589 packed Milwaukee County Stadium to see history made when Yount became the 17th MLB player to reach the mark.  He tied Roberto Clemente for 16th on the list.

Tigers Trade Justin Upton, Get A Bag of Balls & 9th Best Prospect From Angels

Long, Grayson.jpg

To start, this isn’t a bad trade by Al Avila, but it really takes the wind out of Tigers fans already deflated sails.  Upton, by far the Tigers best player this year got off to a rough start after signing a 6-year $132MM deal last year and not sure he really ever became a fan favorite or really attached to Detroit.  J-Up was one of those Mike Illitch signings where he told Al to go out an sign him no matter what and the team paid for it with a very distressing long-term contract, with an opt-out after this year.

Regardless of the money that would have been tied up and yes, it’s great to get dollars off the books, it still feels like a solid kick to the groin when you lose your best player and seemingly get little in return.
