I hear the Diamondbacks are looking at Dan Haren for Howie Kendrick and Brandon Wood.

In a perfect world, I'd love to trade Ramirez, Crosby and a Relief Prospect for Haren an then turn him for Wood/Kendrick. But that won't happen so don't worry bout it.

Why would you give up Haren for anything if you got him? He's really cheap for being a top 5 starter in baseball.

I think they'll try to swing a corner OF. I just hope they don't give up 3 players for a 1/2 a season rent-a-guy. I doubt they solidify their pitching with a trade, though. Too tough to do that. Most teams aren't giving up productive pitchers.

Don't totally disagree.... with one possible exception... Washington Nationals. They are out of contention and have shown they are willing to trade current major leaguers for prospects with upside.

I still like their LH Starting pitcher, Lannan. Here are his stats for this year:

Player TEAM W L ERA G GS CG SHO SV SVO IP H R ER HR HBP BB SO

1. J Lannan

WSH 6 5 3.45 17 17 1 0 0 0 107.0 106 47 41 12 6 38 48

Age 25

I could see Washington trading him for 3 decent prospects like Crosby, Green, Ramirez.... something like that.

You got a team in 1st place with an owner that wants to win. Yes a trade will be made, and it will be a blockbuster....

In an unprecedented move the Tigers will sign Barry Bonds to DH and move Marcus to LF. :pirate:

I hope you're not serious. I suspect the reason Barry hasn't tried a comeback is because he failed a drug test and a suspension would have to be served first. If he doesn't come back, he can continue to deny with a straight face all of the allegations.

Aubrey Huff available? He can play 3B/1B/DH, spelling Brandon, who seems to be hurting/slowing

Id like to see them go after Juan Pierre now that Manny is back he may want a chance to play everyday and might be cheaper then some of the other options out there. Getting on base at a good rate this year (.380obp). Would allow us to move Grandy down to drive in runs as he is not setting the table well this year. Would also be able to end the Josh Anderson experiment. I believe that he may be able to be had for something like Raburn and a minor league pitcher like Satterwhite or a starter instead of a RP like Hamilton. Raburn would have a lot of value to an NL team as a bench player being able to play multiple positions.

I know this team is contending but they're getting Josh Hamilton back on Monday and the Rangers have 5 OF's now.

Hamilton

Cruz

Byrd

Murphy

Andruw Jones

David Murphy would be a nice upgrade, seems like he might be a guy that might be out of the rotation.

Are you willing to pay him 9 mil a season for 2 more years (if my math is correct)?

Dear. God. No.

Fun Juan Pierre facts:

May avg/obp/slg/ops:

.369/.435/.505/.940

June slash line:

.264/.319/.309/.628

The guy had one hot month, don't get suckered in. Raburn is a more complete player and would provide more value. If we offered Raburn for Pierre straight up, Colletti would jump at the opportunity to get out from under that contract.

The Padres just gave Scott Hairston away. He would have been a nice addition.

Hitting would be a distant third on my Tigers wish list, however. Starting pitching and relief pitching are much more pressing needs.

Well, supposedly the PTBNL in that deal is supposed to be pretty good. Still, I bet Hairston would've been a decent pickup.

I would:

1. Sign Ben Sheets

2. Have Guillen DH to protect his shoulder. If he falters,

Larish/Thames could handle DH.

3. Release Ordonez

4. Platoon Thomas and Raburn in RF

5. Trade a pile of prospects for Holiday, play him in LF

6. Start working Miner into the rotation somehow. Move either

Porcello or Galarraga to long relief.

7. Replace Dolsi with Perry.

What would Holiday take? I'm thinking Crosby + Ramirez + Zoom, or replace Zoom with Figaro + Satterwhite.

There is no way on earth I would trade Crosby, Ramirez AND Zumaya for Matt Holliday. I really don't want to get into the habit of trading away 3 players for 1 with an expiring contract.

1. Out for the year had some setbacks.

2. Need better than that..Larish has one HR in Toledo since his demotion

3. Agree

4. Fine

5. We can do better and expend fewer resources

6. Worth a shot, not expecting much.

7. It's a gven but let Perry close in Toledo for as along as possible so he gets the experience of it.

Hairston would have been worth a shot for that cheap. These are the moves I wish Dave would have already made. Hairston is better than the guys we are rolling out there most days.

I disagree. I think hitting is the team's biggest need right now. They just aren't going to stay in first place scoring 2 runs a game and continuing to make average pitching look stellar. I think the bullpen is actually rounding out nicely. The team could use a decent back-end starter, but I think they could get by with what they have if forced to. I just don't know how long Dave can continue to watch this offense struggle before pushing the issue. Hopefully sooner than later.

Hitting might be the biggest need now, but, we shouldn't make the decision on a player like Hairston thinking that THAT MOVE would solve our problems. He would be decent, but, of no material amount of upgrade, thus...........PASS on him or a player like him.

Given half of the season is over, it would require a massive upgrade at a position to result in 2 or 3 wins.

That written, I think a decent starting pitcher and a corner outfielder combined could result in a total of 3 extra wins, plus some roster moves / platoon could net another 1, maybe 2 wins, which could prove big.
