My lineups for 2010

Now that the season has been flushed down the toilet, I decided it was time to move on. That is, move on to next year. The Tigers have quite a few personnel decisions to make during the offseason.

At this point, I'm only going to discuss the potential starting lineups. I realize there will be other batters on the bench, but that's going to be another post. Additionally, the pitching rotation and who stays and leaves is another post.

Ideal Lineup #1

Ideal Lineup #2

I would love to hear your thoughts on these lineups. The discussion begins in the comments section.

Another season done. Another opportunity wasted. Another division lead lost.

My hopes for this season were high. Last year was a huge disappointment, so I was looking forward to a bounceback year for the Tigers. While many fingers could be pointed, I think it's too early to assume what will happen with the Tigers organization. I'm sure we'll hear many cries for Jim Leyland to be fired (my current Facebook status), along with calls to re-sign certain players and to drop others. I imagine we'll start seeing more information on signings and releases in the next few weeks.

This was a rough ending to the season, but as we always say around here, "There's always next year!".

No hunger tonight

Watching the Tigers game right now, and there is just no hunger in the Tigers tonight. They are simply not into it tonight. They don't seem eager to get to the plate, and when they do, they don't seem to have the desire to hit the ball.

The Twins are winning as well, so it looks like the Tigers will have a one game lead after tonight with two games to go. It looks like we might have to rely on Justin Verlander and Zach Greinke on Sunday to help us squeak into the playoffs.
