    David Price to the Red Sox: $217 for 7
    Jordan Zimmerman to the Tigers: $110 for 5

    The Red Sox just laid out nearly twice the money for Price than the Tigers did for Zimmerman, for only two more years of service when Price is in his late 30's. Now, I will happily concede that Price is the better pitcher, but that's an awfully large premium to be paid for the difference in quality.

    Additionally, an opt-out after 3 years and no deferred money.

    I hope Zim has something left with his fastball or this division will eat him alive. Can't complain with the move too much though considering what is left of a one time all star rotation.

    We got what we wanted from Davis. We got full value, but it's time to part ways and go get an everyday left fielder. IMO, neither Maybin nor Tyler Collins is the everyday answer in LF.
    Yes, agree but his offense offset his deficiencies on defense. But we both agree that we have no answer in left field yet coming into Spring training.

    Daddy Avila has non-tendered Al Al and Nine Run Neftali.

    Arbitration has been offered to Iggy, Andrew Romine and JD Martinez.

    We might have Mike Pelfrey for 2 years at $16.

    Arizona signs Grienke and we sign.... Pelfrey. Maybe he can play left field, too.

    No way in the world would I have given Greinke that deal. That's over $34/year. No *ing way.

    You can sign 2 Zimmermans for 1 Greinke.

    They let Albuquerque go and sign Pelfry? well maybe he's a bull pen guy. I can't see him winning any games as a starter.

    I don't think they are done.

    Al Al isn't going to ever be consistent again, not with that screw in his elbow. As for Pelfry, they're going to try him at the back half of the rotation. It might turn out to be Alfredo Simon at his low point. We'll see.

    Apparently Jerrod Saltalamacchia is going to be our backup catcher in 2016. One year deal for roughly the league minimum.

    Now a 2 year deal for reliever Mark Lowe.

    I'm not sure Lowe is an improvement, maybe. I think we'll see a trade for a left fielder at the winter meetings. Certainly an aggressive last month or so.

    Re: Detroit Tigers, Volume 9: The Carlos Guillen edition

    Lowe is probably the primary set-up man. It's either that or watch Alex Wilson blow his arm out by Memorial Day (which might happen anyway).

    And hopefully we do see a new LF, one way or another.

    One more BP arm and a LF, and this roster will really take shape.

    Rumors that the Tigers are looking at Cespedes or Alex Gordon for the left field spot.

    Either would be more than acceptable. I guess Mr. I IS going to spring for some luxury tax next year.
