Everyone has been talking about this. When will the Tigers make a move? What do we need? Who will they go after? What will they do to make the line-up better?

Unfortunately, their needs are pretty big. A fourth/fifth starter and someone to protect Miggy.

I see them filling one of the two spots but not both.

Probably the day of the trade deadline for a corner outfielder. They will at least acquire another outfielder and they may get another starter.

It feels like they will wait and see what they get from Guillen. I wouldn't agree with it, but that's what it feels like to me.

I think they have tried almost everyone in the system and no one stands out as an everyday corner outfield with the power they need behind Miggy. I have always thought Thames was way too inconsistent to be counted on in that spot. I would like to see him hit 5th or 6th and either DH or platoon with Clete. For this reason, I would hope a trade is made sooner than later. I feel like due diligence has been done within the organization. If they feel like they want to make a run this year, a trade has to be made.

I have no idea what the cost would be, but I would like to see Dave target a Holliday type to bat cleanup and either DH or take over LF.

A 5th starter would be nice if they could get one fairly cheap, but I am fairly comfortable with our pitching the rest of the way if they stood pat.

Consistent run production is the biggest weakness IMHO. I thnk a bat could be added without sacrificing the defense that has been assembled. If it replaces Maggs or Thames in the outfield, it would actually be an improvement. I will be disappointed if the team remains quiet through the trade deadline.

I actually think they will make a pretty big move. They're about to eat a lot of money and Mike is going to want to win NOW. They'll throw in guys like Figaro (hence the showcase), Strieby, etc., and take on another crappy contract that will actually add some production. I think it'll be a move that will set the organization back a bit for the need to win now, but I think they'll do it.

It could happen. I just can't see us pull off a blockbuster. I can almost guarantee that we will acquire a corner outfielder, though. I'm just not sure it will be a sexy name that everyone knows or wants.

So like a Renteria type trade of last year.

I think they will make a Sean Casey type acquisition right before the deadline. Hopefully, it will be someone better than Casey but I think it will be an older veteran hitter in his contract year.

I think the best the Tigers can hope for is Dunn, and he probably wouldn't play OF for the Tigers, which means Thames / Guillen / Thomas are going to have to upgrade the OF in such a scenario.

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.

I'd keep Haren

no way the Tigers would get Haren for that anyway
