I've never heard of Bruce Rondon, but the Tigers could use Mike Morse as a left fielder.  Maybe there is a match there.  Cabrera, Fielder, and Morse in the same lineup would be imposing.

nah.  they won't have room for morse because they are going to sign hamilton.

Hamilton to Detroit? Huh. As far as z_d_k crazy ideas go, that's not bad. I can see Detroit being a sleeper team to sign him.

I can't see it.  Even their owner has his limits.  On top of Fielder and Cabrera, Verlander is going to require an extension soon.  No way they can add another $20 mil/year contract.

For crying out loud, can that insane Detroit owner run out of money so some of these high risk free agents can get contracts a bit more in line with what they deserve?

I think contracts are going to be insane this off-season with the extra money.

He doesn't care. He'll be dead soon.

I don't see us signing Bourn with Goodwin so close. I mean Goodwin/Rendon could be packaged for somebody really good.. but I think we're just gonna wait it out.

Ted Lerner should have the same mentality then.

Bourn would be a disaster and a mistake. If we're going to sign an outfielder, sign BJ Upton to a reasonable deal. Also really don't like Kyle Lohse, would far prefer spending big money on Grienke, if only to have an absolutely absurd rotation of Grienke-Strasburg-Gio-Zimmermann-Detwiler. Seriously, filthy.

His son actually gives a crap about the team though. Ilitch Jr doesn't.

what the freak is so unreasonsable about ellsbury.  Apparently we tried to get him multiple times this past season, and Kilgore wouldn't be surprised to see us pursue him again.  That's already more to go on then we have with Greinke.

If it's not Thanksgiving yet and you've posted fantasy trades/line-ups like five times, you need to go to Tijuana and find some cheap hookers and tequila.
