A poll of Cafe magic eight balls got three Yes's, five Outlook Not Good's, and a couple Try Again's.

I think that he'll get traded is a good possibility... being in an AL only league begs the question - will he go to the NL? From what i've heard, the answer is yes. Does anyone think it's likely he'll stay in the AL? TB or KC perhaps? Probably wishful thinking on my part. Any thoughts?

The scuttlebutt here in Michigan is that the Tigers are trying to play the game the way the Twins and Astros have the past few years: essentially shorten it to six innings for its starters (a rag-tag crew) then follow with a strong 7-8-9 relief (Farnsworth-Urbina-Percy).

Their second tier MRs also have some potential, espc. German, so they may have the depth to make it work.

Urbina is key to this. If the Tigers falter, you'll likely see him moved by the trade deadline.

As far as closing goes, Percy is clearly the man in Detroit now. But Trammell knows he has an outstanding option in Uggy if it doesn't work out. We'll see.

Obviously he is a wanted man by ALOT of teams but I can see Detroit holding onto him for awhile.

Percival isn't exactly "Mr Heathy" these days.

That's a great point, I agree that Percival is an injury waiting to happen...

Agreed I hope the Jays trade for him though. I really think he could help them

I got him for the reason that if he is not traded to NYM or CHI relatively soon, Urbina will replace Troy once he lands on the DL. *1st Post*
