Default Detroit Tigers 2016

Who will be the big free agent signing this year? I really hope that Avila does things differently than Dombrowski did. I sure hope he retains the guys that Price,Soria,and Cespedes were traded for. I'd really like to see a trade for a good to almost great third basemen and Nick moves to left field.

My guess at the big free agent is Zimmerman . If they sign him I don't see any other big splashes being made in free agency.

But the biggest bright spot of this season is no more sloppy Joe Nathan.

Tigers trade for K-rod. This would have been a great trade in 2010.

Rodriguez tallied 38 saves in 40 chances and had a 2.21 ERA and 62 strikeouts in 57 innings last season for the Brewers
Sounds like he is still pretty good.

He's not what he once was. Played in a weak division numbers looked good. I think being back in the AL he will get exposed and be on the same path as Jose Valverde was on. I so hope i am wrong and he keeps up the good work.

Camron Maybin is back. Say goodbye to Ian Krol.

He along with Andrew Miller were part of the trade that brought Miguel Cabrera here. Could Miller be coming back also???

Looks like Jordan Zimmerman is going to be a tiger.

Wtf is up with this signing? ??? Really Mike Pelfrey would have been better bringing Joba back.

Seriously???? @ 8mil a year they could have got something better. I would have been happier carrying Randy Wolfe for a few mil a year over Pelfrey. He only won 1 of his last 9 starts. Strikes out less than 4 hitters per 9 innings and has a era that would have made Joe Nathan look good. Maybe i was expecting too much from the tigers.

I think that 8 mil a year on a guy like Darren O'Day would have been better coming out of the pen and let the kids compete to be the 4th or 5th starter. As its being reported now Pelfrey is to be the 4th starter. Guess we need to see what happens at the winter meetings.

Yea that's what I was saying. If they got him cheap I could sew him being a number 5, but not at 8 million.

Couple more signings.
https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sour...KItexWVr5bdL8A
https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sour...yD4VUFpzMFG_uQ

I like both of these. Jarrod is a decent backup and switch hitter along with that he has a ws ring so has experience if McCann has issues if tigers make post season. Lowe is a good set up guy as good as they could get since it appears Soria is headed back to the KC Royals. Shaping up to be a good season.
