- Things seem to be moving pretty slowly in Orlando.  I still feel that Ordonez is their #1 target, but the always scheming Scott Boras may be waiting for Crawford to rake (and decrease OF supply) before starting a bidding war for Maggs.  I like Maggs, but not at what the Red Sox are likely to offer him.  I’d rather take our chances with the kids, and look to make a move at the deadline if we’re in the hunt.

- Crawford’s current asking price may be too much for the Tigers.

- Joaquin Benoit was named the comeback player of the year.  Yay.  But that usually means that he was injured, or not very good the year before.  Have I mentioned that I’m not crazy about the Benoit deal?

- Look for Figaro to be in an alternate Tigers uni next year.

- Did you know that the Tigers had the fewest LH starts by an AL team last year?  Stephen – remember the guy that had most of them for us?

Stephen: left-handed starts? It wasn’t Inge, he was too busy setting the all-time Tiger strikeout record.

FWIW, Alan Trammell was comeback player of the year in 1983. Better that for Benoit than “former Major Leaguer”

Point taken.

Most LH starts in 2010 for the Tigers: Dontrelle Willis – who happened to have a lower ERA than Bonderman, and allow a lower opponent’s AVG than Porcello.
