Default New SS for the tigers

Since Carlos is our new full time 1st basemen the tigers need a shortstop and picked up Edgar Renteria from the braves to posted .332 avg. with 12 homers and 57 RBIs in 124 games with Atlanta this season.

I think it's a good pickup . . . what do you all think?

I love the move. I hate giving up a young arm, but I think this is a solid move.

Dave's just bringing more 1997 magic to the tigers, or so he hopes. I like the move as well.

I think its a good move. You cant get something for nothing, so they had to give up something. I'd rather give up a couple prospects then a proven player.

I mean come on, Jurgens only played 5 games...yeah he did well....but who knows whats gonna happen. Never even heard of the other guy, but here he is a good position player prospect but he is also unknown.

At least with rentaria you know what you are getting.

i dont know what to think of the move. as far as gorkys hernandez goes, according to tiger scouts, they consider him a better prospect than cameron maybin. with the production renteria had this past season, i would have only given Atlanta Jurgens and another, less valued prospect, not hernandez.
at least i wont have to cringe every time i see carlos guillen wind up to throw over to first.

good move. They gave up 2 unproven players for an all-star short stop... thats a no-brainer in my book. The Tigers aren't looking to rebuild and plan on a World Series team 4-8 years down the road... they're ready to go at it now....

being an old baseball player myself I was not happy to see Casey get dumped , I liked his triples and immediate 02 needed afterwards.

I say they should dump sheffield, pudge , rodney and jones they can then buy a back up TEAM of their choice.
maybe even lower the ticket price with the savings.

Maybe the they should have grabbed Lowell from Boston for 3rd , moved inge to catcher and let a game picked fan play SS.

This whole post has to be a joke.

I hate pudge, but I guarantee you he wins 10-20 games with his ability as a catcher. Sheffield, when healthy is a big bat. Jones is jones, and I will take it for 1 more year. Rodney, I can go either way with.

As far as a game picked fan.....what is this 1912?

A-rod would have never come to Detroit. His stats would suffer something awefull!

But I would love to have him

Good move for the Tigers. Hopefully for you kitty cat fans, he plays better this time in the AL then he did with the Red hosers.

Its a good move for the Tigers, especially doing it early like this. Although no one can really compare to A-rod, his contract will be out of this world high, and that will only raise the bar higher for other top guys as well when it comes contract time.
I know we got Renteria on a trade for good prospects, but how many "top" prospects end up washing dishes in 5 years cause they never pan out? More than not i would guess.

It's a good move to solidify a pretty good defense. Inge has a cannon at third. Sure he may have a few errors, but he is solid, a team leader, and a power hitter at the nine spot. Moving Guillen to first is a wash defensively, compared to Casey, but an improvement on offense. Hey, I love Casey. I think he is a great player and an awesome person, but it is what it is. Now you have Renteria and Polanco up the middle, and Pudge behind the plate. I'm an ex-catcher, so kind of partial to Pudge, but the guy is the team leader, and calls a hell of ball game. A little slower, but still better than a lot of catchers out there.

They had a bad year pitching, ton of injuries. If they can keep everyone reasonably healthy, especially in the bullpen, I think they will contend again next year. Jonesy gives me a freakin heart attack every time. They really do need a solid closer that doesn't put on the leadoff batter every time.
