The Tigers inked Todd Jones to a 1 year deal. If you’re keeping score at home, that’s 2 Joneses today. I’ll have more tonight. In the meantime here is a post looking at Jones’ 2007 season.
Conference Call Notes
- People are happy. Todd is happy. Dave is happy.
- Jones’ kids are excited because they are friends with the other Tigers’ kids.
- Dombrowski on getting other relievers: number one priority is getting a starting pitcher right now. He’s not forgetting about the bullpen, but feels that with Todd Jones and Fernando Rodney the pen is solid. (He also cited the experience that Zach Miner and Jason Grilli got last year). My take: it depends how much they spend on a starting pitcher as to what they’ll do with the pen.
- Gotta run and will update with other notes later tonight
UPDATE: Flaky internet connection killed any updates last night. I’ll analyze both Jones transactions tonight.
