Tejada to the Tigers?

If Bonderman somehow manages to keep his ERA under 5.00, maybe with veteran help, than having some decent players in the field behind him and at offense might actually give him some wins.

Thinking about what I just said, I guess I agree and don't think the Tigers should by a lone star. ;-)

Detroit should load up on pitching and play some NL style offense. Their park is more suited to defense then offense.

As someone who grew up as a Tigers fan, it's sad that the organization now only frustrates the hell out of me. I really hope they didn't ruin Bonderman.

Remember when they traded for Juan Gonzalez to bring in a star? Didnt sound so bad at the time, but yuck. I hope they have better luck next time.

Well, Miggy has a much better attitude than Juan does. I don't think he'd pout and whine like Gonzales did.

I don't think what the Tigers need is a star; more a bunch of role players (IE Juan Pierre, not that they'll get him but people something like him), and a couple of good veterans to bring up the young guys (IE Franklyn German).

What happen with Juan Gone is different than this. Tejada is a guy you can build around, he's a warrior. Juan has no heart, and is not a guy you can have teach the young players. I think the response about being a pitchers park,and to go after pitchers was exactly right. There are enough pitchers out there to fill in a few rotation spots. I think they need to stick with Bonderman and Cornejo. Bring in 2 veterean pitchers who can win you 10-15 games our so. Fill in the fifth spot with Jon Connolly. Hes the best minor leaguer they got. But, to resign Dean Palmer like they did today is not the right direction to go.

Seattle has reportly offered Tejada 3 years 24-25 mil, with a option for a 4th. The Tigers are said to be prepared to go higher, Seattle said they won't. It's been speculated Little Kaz was offered a deal similiar to Matsui with Mets, 21 mil.

What are you talking about. If Mike Maroth won 9 games last year, you dont think that some of the veteran free agents out there cant win more than that. Even though thier the Tigers, they are still professional ball players.
