News and Notes: 2.2.11

- Dombrowski stated yesterday that neither Bondo nor Vlad Guerrero would be pursued any further (if they were at all).  Looks like Bondo is going to end up in…Cleveland, according to MLB.com.

- Lynn Henning put together his list of the top 50 prospects within the organizations.  Jacob Turner is #1.

- The 2011 predictions are starting to roll in, and while most outlets think the Central will be a tight race, most of them have the Tigers losing out to the White Sox and Twins.

- Great article on Fangraphs last week discussing Galarraga and his (slim) chances of success in the NL.

- FYI – Don Kelly and Brad Thomas are out of options.

    The whole “Guerrero-is-a-good-fit-for-the-Tigers” thing was due to the fact that it is now the time of year when sports writers don’t have any baseball news to write about so they just make things up.

    Bondo – meh.

    2011 predictions – meh.

    Galarraga – meh.

    Kelly and Thomas out of options – that takes care of our LOOGY and backup catcher needs.

    I’m going back to bed. Wake me when ST starts.

    Well, I, for one, am disappointed. National Signing Day comes and goes, and not a single player picked the Tigers.
