    also, it’s kind of exciting how the tigers are 8-6 while not playing that well. i mean, ingey and armando will show down, and miggy can’t hit quite this good forever, but no one else is playing out of their mind, and we’re looking like a baseball team.

    also, peter king on stafford:

    “This is what I know about the Curry/Stafford maneuvering: Curry would sign for significantly less than Stafford at No. 1. I believe Curry would take Jake Long’s deal with Miami (five years, $50 million, with $7.5 million in possible escalators, and $30 million guaranteed). Stafford would want at least $40 million guaranteed on a six-year deal, or $36 million on a five-year deal. I believe the Lions want Stafford. They have to decide if they want to pay 15 or 20 percent more for him at No. 1.

    Doing the deal for Stafford makes too much sense for both the Lions and the Georgia quarterback. I get the strong feeling Detroit coach Jim Schwartz favors Stafford for the pick, and how do you think the Ford family would feel if, in position to get one of two possible franchise quarterbacks, the Lions choose a middle linebacker who’s not going to be a pass-rusher? On the flip side, Stafford faces a possible precipitous fall if he doesn’t go No. 1. I know of two teams in the top 10 who have Mark Sanchez graded ahead of Stafford. If he doesn’t go No. 1, where will Stafford go? Ten? Or (gulp) 17 or 19? I’d be very surprised if Stafford isn’t Detroit’s choice. ”

    also, there are some analysts who think stafford is absolute bust material. maybe that’s true of any prospect, but it scares me.

    On the Tigers, Yes Inge will slow down. Galarraga came back to earth some in his last start, but I think he’s legit. He’ll win 15 games for us.

    I saw something interesting about cabrera on the Yahoo! big board things:
    All 4 HR, 12 RBI have come in 3 games

    In other words he’s really only contributed in 3 games, it’s not like he’s carried the load for them day in and day out. I think we probably won’t see him put together another 6 rbi game, but he’ll have more of an impact day in and day out. Which will be nice.

    For comparison Pujols has RBIs in 8 of his teams games.

    Let’s just draft Smith or Curry with the #1 and trade our 2nd first round pick and one of our 3rd rounders and move up and grab stafford at like #10.
