Tigers pick up lockerroom cancer
For some unfathomable reason the Tigers traded for Alex Sanchez. The gave up Noochie Varner-who’s been playing well at Erie- and left hander Chad Petty. For more info on Sanchez, check out this glowing piece from the Journal Sentinel. Sanchez lost his starting CF job in Milwaukee. He’s hitting .282 on the season, but has only walked 7 times in 170 plate appearances.
I know I was just complaining about the lack of production from our leadoff spot, but a .316OBA doesn’t seem worth giving up Varner.
