Scroll Relief II (Winter Meetings time)

12.12.2013 94 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 […]

Open thread for the Winter Meeting activities…don’t have much time this morning, but I’m sure our community will keep us up to date…check back often. – Apparently Asdrubal Cabrera has a block on the Tigers, along with the Yankees, Red Sox, Nationals, Giants and Mets. Interesting company. – I don’t think the Indians want Peralta, […]

Your Winter Meetings thread.  I’ll update when I can, but I figure we’ll let the comments take care of the breaking news. Here’s what we already know – Jose Reyes is taking his talents to South Beach.  Did you know that they are the “Miami Marlins” now?  Isn’t that Jamie Foxx’s team in Any Given […]

(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 […]

2010 Winter Meetings: Day 1

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 […]

- 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 […]

Cabrera Wins Silver Slugger Award, and Hot Stove Talk (really Victor Martinez talk)

12.11.2010 15 comments

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 […]

Wrapping up the week

13.12.2009 27 comments

It’s Sunday evening and this concludes my foray into full time blogging. I took this week off to delve into the winter meetings and cover them to the best of my ability. It proved to be an especially eventful week for Tigers fans and this blog. With that we’ll do one last set of hot stove rumors and news nuggets and a couple other thoughts as well.

Why the Granderson take down?

13.12.2009 55 comments

Lynn Henning was ahead of the curve on the Curtis Granderson trade front. He started beating the drum for a Granderson trade in October. It’s something that I never would have seen coming. So kudos to Henning and his crystal ball. But why in the aftermath of the trade has he become so completely anti-Granderson and such a staunch supporter or all things Tigers?
