2024 ZiPS Projections: Detroit Tigers: “Overall, the Tigers look like a roughly .500 team, but their talent is made up of younger players, so they have a decent win ceiling, though I don’t think there’s much chance they go the route of the 2023 Orioles in 2024.” https://www.rawchili.com/3189423/
CapFriendly: “#LGRW placed Dylan Larkin on ‘Active-Non Roster’ yesterday. That placement temporarily opens up a roster spot to add Patrick Kane to the Red Wings active roster.” https://www.rawchili.com/3189319/
A wonderfully assured debut, safe space for all & beautifully arranged exploration of the new age condition from Detroit's Yimes. Rallying their muso mates they managed to assemble quite the ambient orchestra to add some soft edged, radiant neoclassical class & all sorts of wellness inducing electroacoustic moments to their opiodic & healing, musical vibrations.

For everyone losing their minds and all hope because of the state of this game, a loss here makes them 8-3 . . . it could be much worse, especially for a franchise that has mostly been horrible for 66 years. 2023 so far has been a gift.

This one isn’t over yet.
Enjoy your #Thanksgiving! 🦃

@redcrew I grew up one block west of Alter, a few houses north of Jefferson (i.e. on the Detroit side). I remember from my childhood/youth what a nice area it was though the disdain of the Pointers was always just below the surface. Now, most of the houses I used to walk past (including the one I grew up in) are gone, replaced by empty lots. The elementary school I went to is gone too, another empty lot, as are many of the businesses I knew.
The area needs anything it can get that will draw people to live there and rebuild the area, even if it means holding one's nose and letting the Pointers do something.
