Lynn Henning spoke Dombrowski who further reiterated that the Tigers aren't in salary dumping mode. I think we knew this, but it hasn't stopped the dozens of articles that include "and the Tigers who are being forced to shed salary…"
Matt Wallace has been looking at past Tigers drafts over the last month. I missed all of these posts because it seems as if the MVN network tweaked the RSS feed settings so I hadn't been getting updates. Check out his site and the work over the last month.
Zach Greinke deservedly won the Cy Young with Justin Verlander placing 3rd between Felix Hernandez and Roy Halladay. I figure that's about right. But Verlander did receive 1 first place vote and it came from Detroit beat writer Steve Kornacki who defended his choice. Yes there is some homerism in the pick, but not as blatant as with the Ordonez/A-rod scenario in 2007. I suppose there probably is some value in pitching in big games – which Greinke really didn't do and Verlander did well. For me it's not enough to push him over Greinke, but I can see where Steve is coming from.
If you're like me and don't have MLB Network, you missed out on Ernie Harwell's appearance with Bob Costas last night. Jason Beck does his best to capture the highlights. Many of the stories we know. The beauty is in hearing Ernie tell them.
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?
