I'm not totally shocked, we were doing decent for a large part of the season. Then all the injuries caught up and we went down quick

Honestly, mid-May at the earliest

However mild amounts of snark are not unjustified.

Please advise, thanks.
I'd say we should know what this team is by June. That's usually a good measuring stick.

I would say mid May too. Bautista getting injured a lot is a concern.

Possible, but not necessarily true. I think last year both Oakland and Detroit had very poor records late into June.

While it hasn't looked good, our starters (minus Happ, who sucks) have looked better. Our offence will start to come, guarenteed. Too talented not to. Lawries timing will be off for a few games and Bautista has missed a few games.

They don't have a first round pick anyways (top 3 protected) So whether they finish 9th or 13tg in the conference it makes no difference.

Finishing 8th means Miami. Lol.. Have fun with that

Finish 8th? Tonight is the last game of the season. They were mathematically eliminated from 8th awhile ago. And when you trade away your first round it's always good to finish as high in the standings as possible, as we know all too well in Toronto...

Yeah Detroit had to fight off Cleveland and Chicago in the final month of the last two seasons. They didn't separate themselves from .500 ball until August really.

The rest of the team needs to help out Dickey and bring out their O-face.

I hope someone does or they have it on the Sportsnet website. He clearly only knows one sentence in English, "I CANNOT SPEAK ENGLISH BECAUSE I AM JAPANESE"

I know you guys don't want Kawasaki as leadoff hitter but he actually works the count, none of our other replacements do that. Davis would but he swings and misses too often.

As I say this he gets a hit.

Well I assumed it was, and the way Jamie Campbell spoke that's what it sounded like.
