    Sure, but Boras will likely string out that process most of the winter. And we'll have to make a decision on Peralta very soon. I expect the club to keep Peralta instead of gambling on Drew.

    That's ridiculous. Drew isn't going anywhere to back up at this point in his career.

I think the Tigers do a good job when incidents come up, but unless it's a star player, it's really not worth the negative exposure when there are generally other roster possibilities.
    I don't know that they are any more averse to questionable characters than other teams. They've had Urbina, DeFelice, Dmitri Young for example. Trammell had problems with it, partly because I don't think he had DDs full support. Leyland is very good at handling problems.

    You never know with arbitration, but some of those numbers are very high. Jurjens went from $3.5M to $5.5M for his fifth arb year. Cueto went from $3.4M to $5.4M for his fifth arb year. I would be surprised if Scherzer got $7.5M when he appears to be in line for $5.75M.

    They looked high to me as well but it gives people an idea of what are own players raises are gonna be so we can figure out how much money if the budget is the same they have to play with this offseason.

    i know this probably wouldnt happen, but could you imagine if Illitch opened his wallet even deeper and had DD sign Josh Hamilton?
    That is just the kind of shocker i could see Illitch making after the aenemic efforts of our offense in the WS.

    Just imagine-

    1.CF Jackson-R
    2.LF Hamilton-L
    3.3B Cabrera-R
    4.1B Fielder-L
    5. Martinez-S
    6. RF Dirks-L/Garcia-R
    7. SS Peralta-R
    8. C Avila-L
    9. 2B Infante-R

    I believe:
    Peralta, Dotel and Santiago will be back
    Porcello has more value than you'd think
    It's unreasonable to think Garcia or Castellanos will be ready in 2013 for full time MLB duty
    They will acquire a rh outfielder and a closer
    It's tough to hit coming off the bench, if you expect a bench player to hit like a regular, your expectations are too high.
    You need to play your entire 25 man roster, even those that "suck"
    You can't make playing decisions based on short term results

    One thing that I would have done differently from last year was to not sign Prince and have traded Turner+ for Headley. Then used the Prince money to either sign extensions or bring in other FA.

He's the same player he was last year and they brought him back then, so I wouldn't discount that happening again in 2013.
    let's hope someone else signs him.

    Meh. I'm not a fan of Hamilton coming here, for the kind of money/deal he'd command.

    This times one hundred. There were several of us that wish for this to happen last year. Unfortunately, we're now stuck with a contract that will hurt badly in a few years while Headley buds into an all-star.

    I'm not trying to stir the pot but I do think a Hamilton with the Tigers makes a bunch of sense for both parties.

    First: I really do hate the talk of "windows to win" in a team's history, but lets talk frank here for a second. The Tigers "window" is litterally now through 2014-2015 and then the Tigers team may go through some huge changes. First, Cabrera is a free agent after the 2015 season is over and Verlander and Victor Martinez are free agents after the 2014 season is over. Also keep in mind that trade value (for free agent compensation) is at it's best if you trade a player before the last year of his contract. Thus is Verlander or Cabrera will not sign a extension with the Tigers, it make sense to trade them for a haul from another team before the last year of their contract. This might force the Tigers to trade Verlander after the 2013 season or Cabrera after the 2014 season.

    Knowing this, would Dave Dombrowski be very patient to let Garcia, Dirks or Boesch see if they can improve at the major league level over the next few years or get some veteran on the wrong side of the career path for a few years to see if he has any magic left? I'm not so sure...


    Secondly, I think Hamilton knows this will likely be his last MLB contract and some things other than top dollar can be very important to him- like a no trade clause. I don't see Hamilton wanting to sign a huge deal with some grade B team only to find out that in a year or two that team cannot afford him and that they are trying to trade him to save money. Think Boston, think Miami and some other teams that have been stingly with money lately. Sign with a Ilitch team and you know who will sign your checks and that he's good for the money- thick or thin.

    Third, I think Hamilton will want to play for a team who's management doesn't call players out or have a manager that sticks up for his players. Hamilton sort of became a whipping boy for Nolan Ryan in Texas (This kills me, you "only" hit 43 HR's and 128 RBI's for 2012 and Nolan Ryan says about you "His timing on quitting smokeless tobacco couldn't have been worse," to a Dallas radio program) I think Hamilton in seeking a new team doesn't want to be seen as "the guy who will save the franchise" like Albert Pujols was seen when he went to the Angels or Jose Reyes to the Marlins. If Hamilton comes to Detroit, all he has to be is himself. He'll have Cabrera, Fielder and V-Mart hitting around him and Austin Jackson making catches all around him too and anything Hamilton can bring with him to the Tigers will be extra. Hamilton will not have to put the Tigers on his shoulders and carry the team anywhere they haven't already been before.

    Fourth, Hamilton is simply a monster. Look at everything we have been taking about for the past few years (with Dirks, Thomas, Young, Boesch, whoever) in a decent corner outfielders offensive production and compare it with Hamilton. Think about this for a second, his 6 year MLB average is .304 Avg .363 OBP .549 SLG .913 OPS with only 35 home runs per year and 122 RBI's in an "average" year. Offensively, the Tigers can't get much better than this for left or right field.

    Ultimately Dombrowski and Ilitch and Hamilton himself will figure out if he is a match for Detroit or not. But my two cents, heck yea, try and sign him!

    Well, yeah, but re-signing Sanchez would sort of nullify losing Turner in this regard then, since we would lose out on a player similar to Turner had we waited to sign Sanchez this offseason.

    With the bonus caps and slot value being strictly enforced, we can't just work around the rules anymore, so it actually becomes important to manage our draft picks.

    The Dodgers are supposedly open to trading Ethier:

    Dodgers Open To Trading Ethier: MLB Rumors - MLBTradeRumors.com

    I think he's probably on the expensive/injury-risk/aging side, but if the Dodgers wanted to eat some salary, he'd look great in our lineup.

    Instead of signing Delmon Young to platoon in a corner OF position, perhaps we should look at Jonny Gomes. He'd already be receptive to a platoon role, and he hits the tar out of lefties.

    Headly was a nothing before this year. You can't make trades in hindsight. Also, in the scenario the Tigers probably miss the playoffs.

    I am really expecting Sanchez to be resigned and Porcello to be traded.

    i'm really hoping someone has the vision to make Porcello the closer next year (if Sanchez is signed)

    the more I think about it, it's a perfect spot for him and the tigers, if he performs anywhere close to Derrek Lowe's closer years, his value will skyrocket, and the Tigers bullpen will be outstanding
    Put me on record. Prince Fielder will still OPS 850+ in years 7-8-9 of this contract. (sucks that my signature has to stay this for 7 years now)

    There were definately posters who advocated trading for Headley last off-season. I don't know if Jeff was one of them, but I remember a fair amount of dialogue around that exact premise.

    Would Rick's value as a closer be greater than he would be worth in trade?

    Not sure, I think running him through the rumor mill would be beneficial to see if the return is high enough. Really depends on if any other gms really have an eye for the Porcello. I think his upside is still huge, but if the Tigers "give up" on him at this age, I can't imagine anyone will knock them out with an offer. I personally don't believe they'll get more value from trading him than they will using him as the closer
    Put me on record. Prince Fielder will still OPS 850+ in years 7-8-9 of this contract. (sucks that my signature has to stay this for 7 years now)

    I'd think the biggest thing impacting his value in a trade is how many GMs are interested in him. If you can get two or more who view his upside to be considerable, then it really doesn't matter how the Tigers view him, because those GMs will be bidding against one another.

    Rick will be a free agent after the 2015 season, so if the Tigers believe he isn't going to blossom, they really need to move him now to net as good a return as possible.

    yeah, a guy who struck out 157 times would have been a great addition to our offense
    Put me on record. Prince Fielder will still OPS 850+ in years 7-8-9 of this contract. (sucks that my signature has to stay this for 7 years now)

    If this is true, the FA market has gotten well out of hand again:

    He's [Pagan] expected to command in excess of $10 million annually on a multiyear contract.

    ^^^ If that proves true, then I retract my earlier statement about the probablility Sanchez nets $15MM or more per year on his deal and will state with certainty Anibal will net $15+.

    If accurate...I am glad Dotel is back and indifferent on Peralta.

    Pagan did have a monster season though.

    If Delmon got 7 last year, Pagan is well worth 1.5 times that. He had a 121 OPS+ with sped and average defense in centerfield

    but on that note, they need to offer Anibal 48/4 today and make it happen before other people sign, similar to the Victor deal. Fresh off the world series, convince him we're going again and get it done

    I REALLY like Anibal and hope to hell they do exactly what you just said.

    A guy who strikes out 5 per 9IP and a career 850 OPS vs. LH hitters is not someone I want to see in late-inning pressure situations.
