New dimensions in mediocrity: 2023 Tigers

The biggest news of an off-season ending today at Tropicana, where the team's DH will be batting seventh, two slots too high:

There will be some noticeable changes at Comerica Park in the 2023 season.

The Detroit Tigers, owned by Ilitch Holdings, plan to move in the center-field wall at Comerica Park, the team announced Wednesday.

The center-field fence will be moved in 10 feet, making the wall 412 feet from home plate. The height of the walls will be lowered in center field (from 8.5 feet to 7 feet), right-center field (from 13 feet to 7 feet) and right field (from 8.5 feet to 7 feet).

Appreciate the reminder of who owns the franchise.

Honestly every time I checked the tigers section of it did seem like the biggest off-season topic was the stadium adjustments, while every other team at least had some free agent stuff going on. Rough. Hope the season is more enjoyable!

Javier Báez got a late start out of the box watching his drive to LF that hit off the top of the wall for a double. Then he apparently forgot how many outs there were on Akil Baddoo's fly out to CF, resulting in an inning-ending 8-4 double play. The baserunning mishaps continue.

And then Hinch benched him.

(That was Baez's first XBH of the season, lol.)

Hope the season is more enjoyable!

Thanks, MFG. Same here, but not counting on it.

Has Baez always been like this?
