Is Nathan already imploding with his pitching and comments?


Recommended Posts

Yes, big market teams like Philly, NYY and the Tigers have used the minor league system as trading posts for the most part for awhile. The Yankees have stopped a lot of that with the current CBA and began spending more money on International kids and holding onto their upper draft choices since teams cannot go down with large bonuses on down any longer.

Philly is in a deep problem now and I don't want to see the Tigers hit that situation before the core players all get old. Dombrowski can spend heavily on the IFA market one season if Iltch will free funds and help some, but don't want to see that used to patch another BP, or veteran on another pennant rental.

There was a time when the LFT (example) would have a Whitaker one year, Trammel the next, Morris, then a Kirk Gibson and they all would play with Detroit for years. Those days are long gone.

I can't see that it's really any worse of a move than trading 2 of 3 highest draft picks for a relief pitcher in a system that is light already.

Not saying this to be cruel to any of you, but the way this system has become a trade mart is the exact opposite of how Bill LaJoie and Jim Campbell built those really good teams that were built to last from within, starting in the late 70's.

The Tigers have been just as successful with their current approach as the Tigers of the 80s. I enjoyed the 80s teams more because they were more homegrown and there was more continuity, but that didn't make them better. There are lots of different ways to successfully build teams.
