Any chance anyone is planning on going to anymore of their Spring Training games? The wife saw a cap she really likes, but we can't find it online. It seems like it might only be sold at the games. It's basically this cap, but in gray instead of navy:

I didnt see the game today but hopefully Verlander was tinkering with his pitches to get lit up the way he did today.

Well...if youre gonna get caught..using steroids..(yeh..he wasnt pumping a estrogen modifer to grow boobs)..guess its smart to do it when the suspension will start while you are out recovering from TJ anyway...
Taking a bite out his wallet though.. hope it was worth it..

The suspension won’t start until he is eligible to come off the DL.

Even the MLB who issued the suspension seems to think it starts at beginning of 2019 season.....

Food for thought. We know Kemp and White are out of options and Hinch pretty much said they would both make opening day roster. But, I've noticed they sure are playing Fisher a lot and he's been doing well. I'm wondering if they might try to move one or both of those guys and keep Fisher. Alvarez is playing a lot and looks great also. It's a good problem to have, too many good players

He’s out of options, so yeah he should be on the opening day roster unless they just want to let him walk and sign with another team which would be foolish in my opinion

They wouldn’t let him walk, they would trade him. He has value

I agree but if he is left off the 40 man roster to start the season he would be exposed to waivers and could be claimed by another team, which would definitely happen because of his value, but I could absolutely see him involved as part of a trade in the near future

Geez....I know how it works. He would be traded while still on 40 man. They ain’t gonna just lose him for nothing. If they decided to keep someone instead of Kemp or White, they would trade them. Both would start for a bunch of teams

We need to overpay Keuchel on a 2-yr deal to take McHugh's place in the rotation and keep Collin in the pen where he thrived last year.

I so hope Keuchel does not come back. That was always a positive thought last year when I would think of him being gone.

Pitchers like McHugh and McCullers that rely on the big devastating hook need to be in the pen in my opinion. You can only throw so many of those before 1. The hitters catch on after seeing 3 or 4 of them and 2. Before your arm falls off halfway through season with the innings accumulated as a starter.

Need to trade someone, they’re definitely overloaded with outfielders, I’m thinking marisnick is gonna have a breakout season, he was catching fire late in 2017 before breaking his thumb, and in my opinion there’s not a better defensive outfielder in the league

Agree 100%, as far as keuchel tho I still think he can be effective as long as he is getting the low strike call, it’s when he’s not and has to come up in the zone that he gets rocked, if they could get him for a the right price they should, but with boras as his agent I wouldn’t hold my breath

McCullers is out for the year with Tommy John surgery. McCugh is good because he does a good job of changing speeds. He’ll be fine in either role. I’d like to see some of the young guys get the call up.

I have been a critic of Hinch all along, and will probably continue to be. But I really respect the way he handled this.

The red pitch up top is the pitch angel called on springer out of spite to start the inning. This is when Hinch blew up. Dude needs to be held accountable. Almost becoming a mockery with how he acts.
