    Boom. There it is.

    Apparently it was a 6-year deal. Terms not known quite yet.

    EDIT: Just over $132 over 6 years.

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

    So, are the Tigers good enough to compete for a division title?

    Eta. I saw the freep declared them WS contenders now.

    Best part of it is the two yr opt out if true. Cespedes was too expensive I guess.

    Cespedes is also two years older, with a lower career OBP and OPS. Don't get me wrong, I was quite pleased with Cespedes in LF last season. But that 2-year opt out might work to our advantage in a couple years if it gets exercised. Ilitch would be 88 by then. I won't go any further with that train of thought.

    The Freep is a dog**** rag. The Detroit News is marginally better, at best.

    To answer your question, yes the Tigers are good enough to compete for a division title......if they stay healthy. I'm operating under the assumption that Victor Martinez is going to be fully healthy this year, and we'll see a season closer to the 2014 version than last year. Cabrera is also going to be 33 in mid-April, too. Verlander was finally Verlander the last two months of the season as well. If Norris is near 100% after his offseason, that's fine for the #4 slot, assuming that Sanchez is going to give us somewhere north of 180 innings, too. We can cobble together a #5 starter by hook or by crook. The bullpen was finally addressed in detail this year. We'll see how that holds up.

    Why?

    There are now eight possible tv commentator pairings. That's about seven too many. Do other teams do this? The only one I know of is the Dodgers and that's because of Scully's travel restrictions.

    Tigers lost a spring game. They are obviously going nowhere.

    Grand Slam!

    Tigers up 5-0 in the 2nd vs the Yankees.

    Severino is out of the game.

    Well, CF has been decided for now. Maybin is out 4-6 weeks with a broken wrist.

    Victor might have just tweaked the knee rounding first. We'll see...

    Apparently it's a hamstring instead. That's fine for now.

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

    All of a sudden, we've got pitching issues all over the place, one week before the real thing begins.

    Norris is headed to the DL, and Pelfrey is starting to get hit a bit. Exactly zero people are surprised by that last bit. I suspect that Shane Greene is going to get Norris's spot until he gets back, and then if Greene isn't totally getting bombed all over the house, he'll shift to the pen.

    Speaking of the pen, Bruce Rondon got sent to Toledo. Nothing unexpected there. But Bobby Parnell got outright released, too. That one surprised me a bit. Alex Wilson and Blaine Hardy are not healthy. If I had to guess, they're both in worse shape than anyone is letting on. It looks like the bullpen is going to consist of: KRod, Justin Wilson, Mark Lowe, Drew VerHagen, Buck Futter, and God only knows what else. Maybe they bring Boyd north, who knows?

    Either way, this is trouble.

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

    Central is going to be a meat grinder this year.

    -Indians can pitch but can't hit.
    -Tigers can hit but can't bullpen.
    -White Sox retooling will eventually work.
    -Royals can hit and have lights out bullpen.
    -Twins are on cusp of having a bunch of prospects become stars.

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

    agreed there hammer and JF. it's going to be tough. I can't see victor being in the lineup all that often and I wonder who takes his place. I'm hoping boyd comes thru but thats a hope not based on fact. I think Sanchez will surprises us though.
