    Great move by the Tigers

    Stupid trade. Trade prince? Yeah okay.

    They can keep Scherzer now, they get Kinsler and they move Miggy to 1B. Plus escape the overpaid Prince deal. Huge win for Detroit.

    Erick Marlin

    It's a pretty even trade. Kinsler is overpaid, as well.

    And now I'm quite sure rangers will do all they can to get cano.

    So let's see the positives:
    • Fielder's contract is gone
    • Can re-extend Cabrera
    • Extend Scherzer
    • Maybe extend Verlander again?
    • Cabrera back to first
    • Kinsler at second
    • Do they re-sign Infante to play third or put Castellanos back there?

    I don't see Texas going for Cano, either.
    Profar at second, Andrus at short (or switch), Beltre at third, Fielder/Moreland at first/DH interchangeable. Unless Cano can catch ...

    For kinsler? What?!?

    Cano to Tigers maybe? Whats cooking here

    Dombrowski is probably worried about Fielder's waistline after a pretty mediocre 2013 season.

    Why would they do that if they just got Kinsler?
  12. el penguino

    I doubt it. This was more likely done to open room for Profar.

    They reportedly saved only $72 million. That probably won't even cover the Scherzer extension (although it definitely helps), let alone Cabrera and Verlander.

    Also, Verlander is signed through 2019. There is no need to even think about extending him.

    Ah, I should have looked up Verlander first.
    OK, Cabs and Scherzer, then.
    Or maybe they lock up Iglesias.

    Detroit gets the money to keep Scherzer
    opens up 1st base for Miggy
    Castellanos has a spot to be able to get in the starting lineup next season

    Texas doesn't need to overpay for Napoli
    Howard will find heaven as a Power hitter at the Texas ballpark
    Profar will move to 2nd base
    Texas can keep Andrus
    Texas will still bid for McCann

  16. Dombrowski is so good its not even funny.

    As for the Rangers, a risky but bold and aggressive move, I like it.

    Best/biggest 1 for 1 trade in recent memory?

    Castellanos wll get his chance at 3rd base, instead of converting him to the Outfield

    Let's go get Infante now that he has no place in Detroit.
  19. Wild Card

    Wild Card Batting Third

    Wow, that's a big deal for both teams for all the reasons mentioned. Tigers shift into a perfect world, now they can get Castellanos in the lineup, Move Miggy to first, get a productive Kinsler, etc. Rangers have been looking for this kind of bat for a long time, they even tried to sign Prince themselves... They finally get the bat they covet, they get Profar at second base, and a discount on Prince's contract.

    That's two very good GM's at work right there...
  20. I'd like that. But I doubt Infante would be willing to come back here this early in our rebuilding. Plus he'll get a nice chunk of change from somewhere and it won't be us. From what I know him, he deserves better honestly.
