Phil Coke Will Make More than Gerald Laird in 2012

Martin Luther King Jr Day apparently doesn’t affect the front offices of major league baseball teams as many are finalizing contracts with their arbitration eligible players today. Rick Porcello’s signing was reported first and now it appears that lefty reliever Phil Coke will make $1.1M base this year and could take home another $50K based […]

The Roy Oswalt Option

The Roy Oswalt Option

I surely hope that rival front offices don’t read this post and decide to react, but it’s a chance I’m willing to take.

Jack Morris was arguably Detroit’s greatest pitcher during the 1980’s and with Monday’s announcement of this […]

Walkoff Woodward 2012: What to Expect

First of all Walkoff Woodward started in October as a blog covering the playoffs. Of course, the origins didn’t begin there. I authored the blog Two On, One Out all of 2009 and most of 2010, which covered baseball in general, during the first part of 2011 I began The Tigers Den on the Bloguin […]
