  1. Not only that, another scenario would be if another team is looking to "dump" a contract, it gives extra flexibility. \If we could save $37 million on Zimmerman's deal, I'm willing to take any kind of flyer for a prospect. Realistically I think we would only save $20 -$25 million in which case it becomes more of a decision. To answer Shelton's earlier question, I think Zimmerman would get maximum of a 2 year $20 million deal on the open market, at least that is the most I'd think he would be worth to a team in our position. So I guess that would be the threshold I'd go to as far as when he's worth more to us on our roster than trading him. Thus as you get closer to only saving $20 mil, the price in terms of prospects needed definitely goes up for me.

    The Tigers Hitting Thread

    Yeah, I wouldn't mind them cutting Martinez and bringing up someone like Aducci whose development wouldn't be of much concern, but the way Stewart has hit the last few weeks doesn't have me wanting to rush him up right away.

    The Tigers Hitting Thread

    And if they didn't release Ramirez, and he played roughly 3/4 of the remainder of the season, he would be under contract for over $20 mil in 2019. Take away that part of the equation, and I don't think Ramirez is released.

    The Tigers Hitting Thread

    The question isn't if Stewart will put up better numbers than Jones, it is what is best for Stewart's development. They think he's better working on defense and consistently hitting at Toledo before he comes up. That can be argued, though I would currently agree with them seeing the slump he has been in the last few weeks. Player development is much more important right now than putting the best team on the field in 2018. Some may be best suited to get more of that development in the majors than others.

    2018 Draft Pick Watch

    I don't remember that being a late decision. I remember as soon as we found out we had the #2, it was about adding an athletic 7' Darko to an already strong team.
  6. Well the Reds just released him and the A’s claimed him cutting Brandon Moss in the process. Either the Reds were trying to slip him through also just to build their system or they found out the real reason we released him? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Either this or misjudgment in thinking he wouldn’t get claimed are the only things that make sense to me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I think you are right, my bad. So the Reds could do what the Dodgers often do, claim someone who is unlikely to be claimed by other teams, release them, have them pass through waivers, and then you get to keep them in your system. Smart way to add to your system if you have the roster room.
  9. Surprises and disappoints me. I guess if they end up releasing him to try and pass him through we can claim him back as we now have the roster spot with Wood out for the year.
  10. I definitely agree that I would have DFAd someone else but there is a decent chance he won’t get claimed. Chargois from the Twins got through 28 of the 29 teams before getting claimed by the Dodgers who were the last team with a chance. Labourt’s extremely high walk rate (more walks than k’s) at least gives hope he will make it through waivers and be kept with a chance to continue to be developed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. 2 reasons. We would lose a 2nd and 4th round pick this year and 2) we would have to pay more than another team in order to sign him, so how would we be likely to land 1-2 prospects that are worth more than a 2nd and 4th round pick this year?
  12. You do realize that those 2 years of Prince cost the Tigers $78 million ($24 mil/yr + $30 mil sent to Texas). I don't know that that 5 WAR and 3 WAR is strong performance for $78 million. No matter how you look at it, it was a terrible contract. I'm sure it was Ilitch recommended, but it was a terrible contract.
  13. This is my thought as well, and seems to line up with how DD made a lot of his trades.
  14. From what I have read, it’s actually more than was predicted at the beginning of the offseason for Cain. To me it shows more of the blame for the slow market lies on the players/agents than they want you to believe. I know I wouldn’t want Cain at the end of that deal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Jd on a 1 yr deal?

    He already has a 5 year $125 plus million offer from Boston. You would have to give him at least $35 mil to get him to even think about a 1 year deal. No way we do anything like that for another Lugo/Alacantra/king potential return. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
