true... if our bullpen is as staunch (in general) as they were last year, we might still get by...(note to self...check to see who we have lost from our bull pen) but i'm expecting quite a few high scoring games

Little oopsie at Joker Marchant Stadium, the Tigers' spring training home, on the retired numbers. See if you can spot the mistake.

Um, the Tigers retired #3 for Alan Trammell and #47 for Jack Morris last year. Did you miss that, or did you forget? :wave

So this photo was of a fail at updating the retired numbers board to include Trammell's #3 (there are a few numbers evidently out of frame, including #47 for Morris)

i apparently got some really bad information on the internet... NO!!!!!!!!!!! you mean something i found on the internet was wrong!!!!! the horror! shicking!!!!

truth be told, the only uniforms i knew (or assumed) the tigers had retired were cobb (no number, makes sense), greenberg, and kaline... in reflection, i have no idea why gehringer would not have come to mind... pretty salty little 2nd baseman and quite a stick :oops:

The Tigers have also retired the numbers of Sparky Anderson (#11), Hal Newhouser (#16), and Willie Horton (#23). :fyi:

Obviously you didn't go to the official source :mrgreen:

If Horton was on the list, Newhouser should have been. Horton's number was retired in 2000; Newhouser's in '97.

Sparky had his number retired in 2011 (posthumously). It's possible the list you saw was older than that.

there ya go , proving i cannot trust my memory whatsoever... anderson and newhouser were on the list

here was the link i used ... OBVIOUSLY written before last year when the tigers got it right.... well, not really.... are you kidding me , manush. cochrane and crawford obviously should be on the list if gehringer is... whassamatta with management in detroit...in case you don't read the link, he was making the case for trammel, morris and sweet lou whitaker to be added

https://www.detroitathletic.com/blog/20 ... m-numbers/

eta, i checked the date ... it was 2012

I read the link. I agree, it is absolutely a shame that Sparky was not honored with his number retirement while he was still alive. :verymad:

To my shame, I was not familiar with Manush. I looked him up - learned something new today.

okay, i withdraw my indignation for not having manush and cochrane's number retired, since they did not spend their entire career with detroit...and crawford's since i had him confused with someone else but to exclude heilmann from that group is tantamount to excluding berra or dickey from the yanks club iwstm

In addition, there's no number for Manush, while he was with the Tigers, for them to retire. :fyi: He was a teammate of Cobb, before the Tigers used numbers.

Per Baseball Reference, Manush didn't get a number until he played for the Senators in 1931. (He was #3)

just heard on the news tonight, our sugar land skeeters (yep, they're BIG down here!!!!) have been sanctioned by mlb to mess with the game a little...you know, just to see how it works.... one innovation, i'm all for.... robo umpires for balls and strikes :bis: :leb: the next one is just too much a departure from the game.... they want to move the mound BACK!!!!!!!!!! wait, what???????????????? apparently there's just too many ks in the game these days and the poor hitters need some help... are you kidding me?? how about quit swinging from the heels on 95% of your swings ...ya think that might cut down on the number of strikeouts in the league? :nooo: :nooo: :nooo:
