Swiped his first two bases yesterday. Tigers are all in on the running game under Ausmus. Which I noticed in spring training, mentioned here in another thread, and still, for some reason, didn't bump Kinsler's bid up a bit.

Nor did Peter, who proceeded to buy him for $21 in the ADL (mild inflation).

MikeG sat in on our draft. I don't think he was impressed.

Just won the game for the Tigers.

Great game, but I have to say, I am no fan of the replays. We have to have them, of course -- the technology is there -- but I had no idea how much would be lost when we could no longer complain about close calls.

The odd thing is, now there's the very real chance that a close call will be reversed. But it's not nearly as much fun as screaming and hollering, knowing that it's pointless.

The wild card in how much Rajah Davis starts. Iglesias being in the 9 hole probably puts Davis batting leadoff when he starts.

I figure V-Mart, being a switch hitter, bats behind Miggy.

I'm working on projected lineups for the next update of the software (this Thursday)... came upon this at Rotorob...

6. Ian Kinsler, Detroit Tigers (2): Thanks to a blockbuster winter trade, Kinsler will now be protecting the greatest hitter in the game. His strength has always been power and with his speed potential, some had been crying about him being the next Joe Morgan. Kinsler is getting on in years, but remains a 20-20 threat. The one thing that impresses us about him is that he strikes out just 11.9 per cent of the time, which is a stark contrast from the MLB average of 18.3 per cent over his career. That kind of contact is a rare feat for a power hitter. Kinsler has been displayed on the top shelf of second basemen since his initial 20-20 season in 2007. However, he’s now in his 30s and is very injury prone. Still, we expect passion and drive from this hard surging veteran. Expect Kinsler to come off the board early in the sixth round. — JJ

Is that right? Kinsler's going to bat behind Miggy?

I'm thinking lead-off. Good profile, though.
