I am praising God tonight. Anyone who knows us knows the struggles my baby girl has talking to people. Even people she has known for a long time have never had her talk to them. God has been moving in her and helping her grow. A year ago, she wouldn't talk to anyone outside of a small few people outside of of us and her brothers. But God.He said He isn't giving up on her. He continues to help her grow and take steps in her communication. And tonight, we were blessed to meet her favorite singer Jamie Grace. Now, when I was a kid I got to meet my favorite baseball player Alan Trammell. When I did, I didn't say a word. I just handed him my baseball card to sign and moved on. Now my baby girl who is scared to death to talk to people that she sees all the time...TALKED TO JAMIE GRACE! And not just once. Multiple times! My God is so big. Despite times when we get worried, fearful, anxious, and even angry when she doesn't progress the way we want her to, God steps in and says, not so fast. My ways are not your w ...

Hall of Fame Soapbox: It is called the Hall of "Fame", not the Hall of Stats….Though many players make it in based on Statistics, Jackie Robinson did not make it in on stats alone(1500+hits, 170+HR, etc).

Writers are allowed 10 picks, I only selected 8 that I thought were worthy. Greg Maddux, Jack Morris (winningest pitcher in the 80's), Frank Thomas, Lee Smith (478 saves), Curt Schilling, Fred McGriff, Mike Mussina and Tom Glavine. Not on my list - Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, Rafael Palmeiro, Jeff Bagwell, Roger Clemens and Jeff Kent, all PED users. Guys that didn't quite have the stats - Craig Biggio, Tim Raines, Alan Trammell (breaks my heart to say), Larry Walker (Colorado factor) and Don Mattingly,
MLB Roundtrip with Jeff Joyce and Scott Miller is live until 11pmET! Of the players who have been on the ballot a while and likely aren’t getting in (Tim Raines, Edgar Martinez, Lee Smith, Alan Trammell, Jack Morris, Don Mattingly, Fred McGriff) which is the biggest injustice? Give us a call at 866-MLB-ON-XM/866-652-6696
Which player is most deserving of the Hall of Fame: Edgar Martinez, Tim Raines, Curt Schilling or Alan Trammell? Paul Severino welcomes Ken Davidoff, Peter Gammons and Tyler Kepner to look at notable Hall of Fame classes, the ten-player limit rule and what changes they think should be made in the voting process on Clubhouse Confidential, LIVE at 3:30pm ET.
So the ESPN writers did their own HOF vote, and would theoretically elect only Maddux, Glavine, Biggio, and Thomas. For the record, here is my own personal list of all current eligibles for the Hall that I would vote for if I had a ballot, ignoring the outdated and inane 10-player limit: Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, Frank Thomas, Craig Biggio, Jeff Bagwell, Jack Morris, Fred McGriff, Mike Mussina, Mike Piazza, Tim Raines, Curt Schilling, AND Bonds and Clemens (on their pre-juicing stats alone). I would also not be against seeing Jeff Kent, Alan Trammell, Larry Walker, and Lee Smith get in. Differences in opinion and aspersions on my sanity are more than welcome.

Hall of Fame voting is announced January 8th. If you were a member of the baseball writers association, who would you vote for and it's limited to 10 players. My choices would be Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, Frank Thomas, Jack Morris, Alan Trammell, Mike Piazza, Jeff Bagwell, Craig Biggio, Jeff Kent and Tim Raines

Alan Trammell, Jack Morris and Kenny Rogers on Hall of Fame ballot
Of the candidates liter below, the lock for the 2014 Hall of Fame is starting pitcher Greg Maddux (300-game winner, gold glover). I'll give an outside chance to fellow SP Tom Glavine (300 game winner; last one for awhile) and 1B/DH Frank Thomas (power hitter and two-time AL MVP), as well as SP Jack Morris, for whom it's now or wait 'til the veterans committee. Morris was the stud pitcher from the 1984 Detroit Tigers. He had a high ERA but he was a gamer. So too was Alan Trammell, the shortstop, but he won't get in. Jeff Kent put up some big numbers but doesn't have the pedigree. Bagwell & Biggio could get in eventually. Bonds, Clemens, McGuire, Palmeiro, Sosa and even Piazza (whispers), all tied to steroids. Martinez, Mussina, Schilling & Raines, dark horses who could someday get in. Mttingly just a couple years short because of injuries (had 5 strong years, when at least 7-9 needed). McGriff has power numbers but not as trendy as a Thomas. Lee Smith a work horse, but not a hall of famer. My prediction: G ...
Baseball Hall of Fame inductees on Jan 8th. I think 2 will be voted in granted they are pitchers Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine, great pitchers don't get me wrong but I'd like to also see Frank " The Big Hurt " Thomas, Alan Trammell and Don Mattingly.
Ages of recent Tigers managers in 1st season: Sparky Anderson (45); Buddy Bell (44); Larry Parrish (44); Phil Garner (51); Luis Pujols (46); Alan Trammell (45); Jim Leyland (61); Brad Ausmus (44). Sparky was just 36 when his Reds team won 102 games in 1970.
Plus, Kirk had a falling out with Dave Dombrowski after Alan Trammell was fired as manager. Gibson was Tram's bench coach.
Whelp ... time to brush off the resume and send it to Mike Ilitch and Dave Dombrowski ... so I can be the new field general of the Detroit Tigers. Here's what I bring to the table: - I have followed baseball for nearly 50 years - I own an Alan Trammell jersey - My next-door neighbor growing up was Hal Newhouser - I own a baseball bat and glove - I have a Tigers WRIF bumper sticker If these don't garner me at least an interview ...
who should be the next Tigers Manager.we know who it won't be.it won't be Kirk Gibson or Alan Trammell.it won't be Tony LaRussa either.it won't be Lloyd McClendon or Gene Lamont either.who could it be? My friend Mike Mock thinks it is going to be Ozzie Guillen. I am not sure if he would be a good fit.
So , any thoughts on who you like to see replace Leyland ? My first two choices are spoken for. Joe Maddon is my top choice, with Terry Francona as second. Maybe Kirk Gibson or Alan Trammell. Please Lord, not Gene Lamont, the only coaches I'd like to see back are Brookens and Jones .
TV5 has learned that Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland has announced that he will be stepping down as the team's skipper. Leyland, 68, made the announcement Monday morning. Leyland told the team he'd be stepping down after the Tiger's loss to Boston in Game 6 of the ALCS. Leyland has been Tiger manager since 2006, taking over for Alan Trammell. Leyland has led Detroit to two Worlds Series appearances and four American League Championship Series appearances, including the last three. He is a three-time Manager of the Year winner, twice in the NL with Pittsburgh in 1990 and 1992 and with Detroit in 2006. His career win-loss record is 1,757-1,711. In eight seasons with Detroit, his overall record is 700-597.

I'll never forget my first game. Alan Trammell hit a homer, Sweet Lou Whitaker was sweet, and Tiger Stadium was scary.
in Detroit is hard to beat Steve Yzerman, Barry Sanders and Alan Trammell
This day in baseball...a new dawn. 2005 Two-time National League Manager of the Year (1990 and 1992 Pirates) Jim Leyland is named to replace Alan Trammell, who was fired as the Tigers’ manager yesterday. The sixty-year old, who guided the Marlins to a World Championship in 1997, has not managed since resigning as the Rockies skipper in 1999.
As we all know the Dodgers and Dbacks coaching staffs are filled with really good players from the 80s and 90s. Well I put together a line-up with both of these coaching staffs and this is what it would look like.

Alan Trammell combined excellent defence with a solid bat, but is the victim of an elite era of shortstops:
Dahlen, along with Alan Trammell, might have the best argument for the Hall for an eligible SS not already in.
Maybe if we're lucky, Ryan Braun will give Alan Trammell the 1987 AL MVP

Cahill outdueled by Stults in D-backs' loss to Padres ASSOCIATED PRESS | Friday, June 14, 2013, 10:33pm Cahill reacts to D-backs' loss D-backs' offense can't solve soft-tossing Stults D-backs manage just two hits against Padres soft-tosser Stults in 2-1 loss that 'definitely hurts.' San Diego (AP) -- Diamondbacks right-hander Trevor Cahill tied his career high with his 10th strikeout of the night when he fanned Will Venable for the second out of the sixth inning with the bases loaded. One more strikeout -- or just one more out, period -- and Cahill would have gotten out of the inning. Instead, Logan Forsythe hit a two-run double and left-hander Eric Stults pitched a career-best two-hitter to give the Padres a 2-1 victory over the NL West-leading Diamondbacks on Friday night. The fourth-place Padres pulled within four games of the D-backs. San Diego has won four straight and seven of nine overall. Bench coach Alan Trammell managed the Diamondbacks while Kirk Gibson served his one-game suspension stemming . ...
So Don Mattingly, Kirk Gibson, Alan Trammell, and Mark McGwire were all involved in a brawl, was this a recent game or from an '80s all star game??
Love it, the old guys of baseball acting their grnadchildrens' age. Los Angeles Dodgers batting coach Mark McGwire (12)(the old A's slugger) holds back Arizona Diamondbacks third base coach Matt Williams (9) (who once played for the Dogers I think) as Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly (8) (of Yankee pinstripe fame) speaks with Arizona Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson (23) (who's homer spurred the Dodgers to a World Series championship) in the seventh inning at Dodger Stadium. (Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports) Still at it... Manager Don Mattingly of the Los Angeles Dodgers pushes down coach Alan Trammell (3) (a true Tiger from his days in Detroit) of the Arizona Diamondbacks during as Diamondbacks coach Matt Williams tries to restrain Mattingly. (Stephen Dunn-Getty Images)
Some fun things about baseball yesterday: 1) There was a brawl between the Dodgers and Diamondbacks that seemed to involve every coach who was an all-star in the 80's: Kirk Gibson, Mark McGwire, Don Mattingly, Don Baylor, Alan Trammell; 2) this lead to the perfectly cromulent headline "Plunkings Lead to Fracas"; 3) The last three pitchers to start a game for the Toronto Blue Jays: Johnson, Dickey and Wang.
Alan Trammell, Don Mattingly scuffle during Dodgers-Diamondbacks brawl ...: It began in the sixth inning of th...
I'm so disappointed that Alan Trammell let Don Mattingly take him down last night.
Great Dodgers / Diamondbacks action last night. Bean balls galore and bench clearing dust-up. Guy on the Baseball Network described it as a "fantasy brawl" - Don Mattingly, Kurt Gibson, Don Baylor, Alan Trammell, Matt Williams, Mark McGwire - all mixing it up.
Rewatching the brawl to get a clear grasp on this. Who should be suspended and or fined: Dbacks: Ian Kennedy, Turner Ward, Alan Trammell (he tackled one of the Dodgers coaches), Cody Ross (a fine, he kind of picked Belisario) Dodgers: Mark McGwire, Yasiel Puig, Don Mattingly, whoever pushed Ward and whoever hit Hinske, Ronald Belisario (a fine). There's more, so many have jackets on and I can't tell who they are. Feel free to add your opinion.-Brandon
Don Mattingly, Kirk Gibson, Alan Trammell, Mark McGwire, Don Baylor, Rick Honeycutt, and Steve Sax all appeared in either the All-Star Game or the World Series in 1988, and were all very physical in the middle of the scrum during the brawl tonight at Dodger Stadium. They were joined in the scrum by Matt Williams, who was on the first of his several All Star teams in 1990. If this thing had happened 25 years ago it would have been the greatest brawl of the 1980's. And I thought that Saturday was Old-Timers Day at Dodger Stadium!
Mark McGuire, Kirk Gibson, Alan Trammell, & Matt Williams r still getting into baseball brawls in 2013. Meanwhile...
Mark McGuire, Don Mattingly, Don Baylor, Alan Trammell, and Kirk Gibson all involved in the fight...tf thats a fantasy lol

Man I wish I was at Chavez Ravine tonight! McGwire and Matty Williams going at it! Kirk Gibson in the mix with Alan Trammell being tossed like a rag! And that was just the coaches. How many times does Grienke plan on getting in brawls this year?
I thought I was too young to see Mark McGuire, Don Mattingly, Kirk Gibson, Alan Trammell, and Matt Williams all brawl in the same game.I was wrong
Wow, talk about an "old school" brawl. Don Mattingly, Alan Trammell, Don Baylor, Kirk Gibson, Mark MacGwire and Matt Williams. Classic!! I'd pay money to see MacGwire knock Matt Williams out!!!
Wow, watching Alan Trammell, Kirk Gibson, Don Mattingly, Matt Williams, and Mark McGwire fight it out in L.A. tonight. Flashback to 1990.
I seriously just thought Mark McGwire was gonna punch Matt Williams, Kirk Gibson, and Don Baylor all in a matter of 30 seconds!! Don Mattingly threw Alan Trammell to the ground. If Tim Walloch would have thrown a punch it would have been one for the ages!! This was great!!
Cardinals have tied the Diamondbacks 6-6 as we head to the top of the 8th at Busch Stadium. St. Louis evened it on Carlos Beltran's RBI single in the 7th. In the 6th, Yadier Molina slapped a single that scored Beltran, who was thrown out trying to steal third but was somehow called safe by fill-in umpire Jordan Baker. After a pitching change, Baker tossed Arizona bench coach Alan Trammell. Trevor Rosenthal is on to pitch for the Cards.
coaching staff is like an All-Star team fr 90's Kirk Gibson, Charles Nagy, Steve Sax, Matt Williams & Alan Trammell.
Was thinking of underrated 80's players. Sidney Moncrief and the double play combo of Lou Whitaker and Alan Trammell are a few on my list
