- The Cliff Lee race is over, and the Phillies win by a mile.  Lee reportedly left $50-$60M on the table to sign with Philly, who now boasts Cole Hamels as their #4 starter.  Halladay, Lee, Oswalt, Hamels. Wow.  Kudos to Lee, it really wasn’t about the money. – Henning writes that the Tigers’ next […]

(updated as necessary) – Tigers talking to the Cubs about a a borderline 5th starter, but at least he’s a lefty. – Ordonez is the apple of Boston’s eye, reports Danny Knobler, though Boras suggests that there are several serious suitors.  Maggs worked out today in Florida to show everyone how is ankle is doing.

2010 Winter Meetings: Day 2

- 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 […]

With Werth off the market, Lee and Crawford should get the majority of coverage this week.  But even without big name free agents, the Winter Meetings are always hopping, and the Tigers are no stranger to dropping news bombs this time of year. Sure, I’d love to be on the hunt for Crawford, Lee, or […]

- Zach Miner has been designated for assignment. Assuming he clears (I’m sure he will), he’ll be a free agent on Friday.  But the Tigers are likely to bring him back.  He’s been a great spot starter and will be a good long man starting off in 2011.  Good info on the rationale for taking […]

2010 Minor League Wrap, Part 1: Pitchers (by Nick D)

29.11.2010 1 comment

This is the first of a two part series composed by DTW member Nick D.  Look for Nick to cover the minors in detail in the upcoming season(s). As any Detroit Tigers fan knows, most of the organization’s top prospects spent a significant amount of 2010 wearing the Old-English “D”. Names like “Rhymes”, “Boesch”, “Jackson”, […]

More on Victor Martinez

25.11.2010 12 comments

Despite this guy’s negativity, I really like the deal for a number of reasons.  (You really should check out that link if you want to see a good example of how to poorly build  an argument). 1) Other than his injury year of 2008, he’s had a WAR of 3.9 or higher (see Fangraphs here) […]

Lots of stuff to get to… - Rumor is that Tigers and Victor Martinez are close to 4 yrs/$50M.   Terry Francona is already weighing in on the loss of Martinez. – Tigers declined arbitration on Bonderman, Seay, Laird, Damon and Ordonez, and thus forego any compensation picks if any of these players are signed by […]

- DD’s latest interview infers that a big bat is top priority now. – Ni was sent down, and Alberto Alburquerque (not to be confused with “Albuquerque”) signed to minor league deal and added to the 40. – Ordonez news – Boras is already doing his thing, and Jason Beck thinks this means that Maggs will […]

Tigers sign Benoit (and Adam Dunn talk)

17.11.2010 22 comments

3 years at $16.5M is a hefty price tag for a setup guy who has really only had three good years over his 8 year career.  Benoit had a sick .68 WHIP last year with 75 Ks in 60.1 IPs.  Problem is, that he’s never had a WHIP lower than 1.17 in any of his […]

Welcome to the Hot Stove – the GM meetings began today. AJax has a nice showing in Rookie of the Year voting, but hats off to Feliz.  Feliz took 20 of the first place votes, with Jackson receiving the other 8. Casper Wells gets hot in the Dominican Winter League, then tweaks his knee. If […]

Miguel Cabrera won his third Silver Slugger award today, and joined Albert Pujols in the distinction of winning it at three positions (remember he predominantly played OF for the Marlins when he first came up). But on to the more pressing issues at hand: The Tigers are being routinely mentioned as the team most who […]
