We've all been talking about trades and what needs to be done. Yes these names have been brought about 1000 times over the last 5 weeks, but the Tigers really need to get one of them. Will it happen? What would we need to give up? I'm tired of Leyland bringing up kids to replace kids that have done a good job.

Thomas- The kid needs to be playing every day. He's had some big hits for the Tigers this year. Yes he was in a little slump, but he's won a few games for us and hit some big homers. Let the kid play

Granderson- Batting in the 5 hole???? The guy is starts the offense and he needs to be moved back to lead off. Yes Granderson has hit for power this year, but he's the spark of the team and should be batting 1st

Anderson- Should be batting 8th or 9th. He's not an every day player.

Carlos Guillen- When he's not hurt he's one of the best hitters we have, but he's done for the year and maybe as a Tiger. I hate to say that

Adam Dunn- Trade for the guy. We need a left handed power hitter and someone that can hit in the 5 hole and drive in runs.

Matt Holliday- Yes I've heard we need another corner outfielder, but Holliday would provide power. Another Right handed bat might not be the answer though.

Polanco- I'll say it once and I'll say it twice.. His stats might be down a little, but he should be playing every day.

Inge- He's having a great year and one of the best 3b in the game.

As I said in the other thread, it's extremely annoying the Tigers didn't make a run at Dunn this offseason. It's not like he had some huge price tag.

Talk about beating a dead horse..over..and over..

What's your deal? NOONE in thread even mentioned horses... much less dead ones. Why do you have to bring animal cruelty into every thread?

We are trying to discuss the Tigers... not dead horses..

:grin:

I've got it!

We trade Porcello and Larish to the Red Sox for Ortiz and Buchholz. We then turn around and trade Ortiz, Guillen and Robinson for Holliday and trade Maggs and Willis for Dunn.

Problem totally solved.

"Matt Holliday- Yes I've heard we need another corner outfielder, but Holliday would provide power. Another Right handed bat might not be the answer though. "

----------is it me or does anyone else see that Matt Holliday looks like a balloon that's had it's air let out?----------------no more roids, no muscles, no HR productivity.

NOT the same Matt as seen in prior playoffs..............

I love how the larger threads have given birth to their own threads..that say the same thing as the larger threads..I also notice the post count from the thread starters is less than..100..coinicdence..

I checked our minor league affiliates..Robinson..has cooled off dramitcally since we discussed him last week, he may only bring us Dunn..I think Holliday is out of the question unless we include another prospect..Has Maybin signed yet??

What does roids have to do with anything? He's just an average hitter when he's playing outside of Coors' Field. It's not rocket science.

Mike..he has hit .290+ with almost 30 RBI in his last 150AB's...that beng said, the HR's are down.

So you have to have a lot of posts to start threads? That's it! I'm starting a thread a day for a whole month just to prove the point!

Although, what point would I be proving? :rambo:

He actually had an .850 OPS outside Coors from 2006-08, and this year he has an .850 OPS outside Oakland...

I think he'd be an OK trade... but I'd wait until the deadline to find out more info (on both Holliday and internal options)... and then, NOT "trade the farm" for him if we needed to. "C" prospects, not "C+ to B+" prospects.

If that's not good enough to get him... then C'est la vie.

I mentioned this same phenomenon a few weeks ago.

Nah. It just seems that the consensus was that people don't mind if something being thoroughly discuss in one thread is given it's own thread so that those who are not following the larger thread get a chance to rehash the same arguments that were made in the original thread.
