  1. Juan Legares is a very good CF, and the Mets have a glut of OF. He is not on there list to move, slotted to play against LHP, and late defense, but the Tigers worked out a nice deal with Fulmer and Cespedes, so maybe they could deal again, and he could be had for an affordable price.

    • I just saw that Juan Legares has a sprained shoulder from diving for a ball, which he caught, and is done playing winter ball. The good news for him is he should be ready for spring training.

      • In that case, Kurt, lets add to it! Keep the team competitive for the fans. They really are not all that dar away from being a quality team….even if Brad is the manager. Go out and get Andrew McCutchen!

  2. Who they let go in order to “add”. Need a CF and a back-up C but if you trade Kinsler or JD you also need a RF and 2B, neither of which is available in their farm system. Will be interesting.

  3. This in my mind is the key to 2017. We HAVE to figure a move for Victor. A trade that would work, free up cash, & he would approve. My other idea is to get him moving toward coaching/managing is assign him a spot at Toledo as player/coach. We have to get him OUT of Lineup – clogs everything. Your paying regardless. Remarks K&H?

  4. Any motion towards or rumors of actual interest in Ben Revere? Seems like he’d be a cheap, low-risk FA signing w/ high potential upside–especially if given an incentive laden deal. He’s little injury prone, but still just 28, and (excluding last year) has demonstrated real offensive ability, speed, and is LH. Would Detroit take a shot on him then counting on a Collins/Jones platoon or signing someone like Davis.

  5. Who they let go. We suffered defensive shortcomings at 2nd & short for a long time. We finally have a dynamic duo in Ian & Jose. I don’t want to lose either one of them.

  6. I’m continually frustrated with the injuries that occur and seem to linger for the rest of the season. Zimmerman is the most recent example. The guy had been a workhorse for his entire career until ’16. He came back too early twice blowing games that could have been the difference in the WC. Other examples are there. I have no confidence that this will improve with our current head trainer and staff.

  7. What is clear today is that the Tigers thought that players on the current roster were going to net them much more in return during the winter meetings. I feel that subtracting will be the best in the long run. Looks to me like we monitor the team’s success (or lack thereof) up until the trading deadline. If we have a legit shot at the post season then, add a player or two and go for broke, then if you miss, bust it all up at the end of the season. If the Tigers are not within 3-4 games of the Wild Card then, strategically offer players to teams that need them and get as much as you can. No untouchables at this point. I’d really miss Miggy but if they are out of it in late July then they realistically will not be back in the hunt until they bust it all up.

  8. Matt Miller your probably right. Ian deflected a negative question about ba with a side ways glance and said ‘hes our manager and that’s all there is to it! Answers like that speak for themselves.
