Scroll Relief II (Winter Meetings time)

12.12.2013 64 comments

That’s gotta look good right about now if you live anywhere north of the Mason-Dixon Line. Or maybe anywhere west of the Maginot Line, or east of the International Date Line (although, technically speaking…). How about anywhere south of the North Pole? It’s been a busy offseason so far for the Detroit Tigers, surprisingly so […]

Tigers Acquire Jose Iglesias

31.07.2013 19 comments

Tuesday night the Tigers–presumably as a pre-emptive solution to an imminent Jhonny Peralta suspension–obtained Red Sox infielder Jose Iglesias as part of a three-team trade that sent Avisail Garcia to the Chicago White Sox and Brayan Villarreal to the Boston Red Sox. Jake Peavy went from Chicago to Boston in the major part of the […]

Tigers Acquire Jose Veras

29.07.2013 11 comments

Jose Veras has been acquired from the Houston Astros for outfield prospect Danny Vasquez and journeyman PTBNL. I don’t know much about him, but it seems like a no risk move. I don’t expect him to close, though I do think it’s reasonable to believe that he’ll be the setup guy. I’m afraid this means […]

Late Spring Roundup

26.03.2013 36 comments

Lots of news over the past 4-5 days. You’re already aware of these items, most likely, but here’s a little roundup to “put them in the paper,” so to speak: ROSTER MOVES: IF Jeff Kobernus was sent back to the Nationals. The Tigers retained the rights to Rule 5 LHP Kyle Lobstein by trading C […]

How Time Flies

10.03.2013 83 comments

The Detroit Tigers are 8-7 in Grapefruit League play as of this writing and are having a rather good spring overall, statistically speaking. A few injuries and a few WBC excused absences are the only flies in the ointment at this point. We’re getting to the point where Spring Training starts to get interesting, or […]

Will Brandon Inge Make the 25 Man Roster?

29.03.2012 29 comments

Should he and Will he are two different questions. Based on what I know of JL and his loyalty to veterans and unwillingness to change, I think Inge is a shoeo-in. Despite the fact that Dombrowski may be pushing the other way. But let’s see what we know: Turner, Strieby and Berry (and 3 others) were sent down […]

Hello all – hopefully everyone is having a great holiday season and your bowl picks are hitting at better than 55%.  Not too much today, just a few notes in case you missed them over the past week or so.  (and thanks to a tip from Billfer I think we got a workaround on the […]

Joel Zumaya to the 60-day DL, maybe forever?

18.04.2011 10 comments

(picture from www.freep.com) I’m not sure that this is news to anyone, but don’t expect Zumaya to pitch anytime soon, or this season, or perhaps never again. As unsurprising as this news is, it’s still difficult to swallow because I don’t think any of us will forget the magic he brought in 2006 nor what […]

Dombrowski is “confident” he’ll trade Galarraga (UPDATED: Trade)

19.01.2011 15 comments

According to the Freep, DD is actively shopping AG after he was bumped from the roster today to make room for Brad Penny. Crazy, because they just signed him to a 1-year, $2.3M deal.  Why sign him and then toss him like an old moldy bag of tangerines, you ask, Coleman?  Here’s why. No one […]
