Joe Sheehan made a list of who’s been naughty and nice (premium). He lists the Tigers in the nice category saying the Bonderman deal was a risk worth taking, and really liking the addition of Sheffield:
I suspect that his impact on the team’s overall run scoring will be greater than we can model. Adding an OBP guy to a high-SLG, low-OBP lineup should have a larger effect than adding it to a more balanced lineup.
I did an interview with Mike from the Daily Fungo Podcast. It doesn’t look like it’s up yet, but I’ll drop the permalink in here when he posts it. It’s nice talking baseball again.
though they're asking for too many years, i'd still try to sign Soria or O'Day... even with KRod, DET's bullpen
Kaline fan I'd say Big Al & Tigers doing pretty good so far. Just the fact that they dumped "Gas Can" Krol
Tony de Florida I agree, and there may be some upside. It would appear our coaching staff needs to work on cutting down
jud Krol and Spier are basically worth a box of rocks trade value wise , so getting Mabin is ok with
TIGERS RULE ...... 7.5M for a platoon player? Are the Lions running the show here?
I don't care that they traded Krol, but why not just re-sign Davis if you want an "athletic outfielder" that
