The Tigers acquired Jhonny Peralta and cash from the Indians for minor league pitcher Giovanni Soto

I hope Soto makes it to the majors and faces Geovany Soto. How unlikely would that be?

Zero fantasy impact for anything other than deep AL-only leagues.

I just wish the Tigers would address the real holes in their lineup, rather than constantly slighting utility guy Ramon Santiago, who's been as good or better than every other option they've started at MI in the past three years.

3B, C, and a corner outfield spot would have made a TON more impact for the future. This move feels a lot like throwing in the towel, and you honestly can't blame them with all these guys on the DL and suddenly finding themselves 5 back. :-S

Peralta can barely hit, has zero power these days, doesn't take a walk often ... aside from positional experience, he's barely above some guy from the minors. This move definitely didn't show the Tigers' hand in whether or not they're going for it.

The Tigers trading for Jhonny Peralta is like farting on a turd in hopes that it will smell better
