Mostly? Because his name isn't Carl Crawford....

But besides that fact, he's not a lefty and he's not 29 years old.

And he looks dirty.

we have about a 0.01% of getting Crawford...i'd like Werth better if he was left handed but he's better than anything we're going to put in RF...depends on the price though...being a Boras client i sure dont want to shell out $75M/5 years

It would take some planets aligning, I agree, but if Crawford is a 1% chance I'd hardly think Werth would be any better than a 5% chance. Assuming NY makes a splash in the headlines with either Lee or Crawford, I can't see Boston sitting idly by while Werth signs with the Tigers for less money.

Being 100% honest with myself, I admit the Tigers probably aren't going to make any huge splashes this off-season. Sure, we've freed up a bunch of money, but this isn't a very deep player pool we're looking at and we're competing with all the usual suspects for the premier free agents.

Only a few days into the process and I'm already tempering my expectations by a lot.... it's feeling more and more like the Tigers are going to field nearly the same club next season and just pocket all that money. Best case scenario they're a couple games back at the deadline and decide to spend some of it then. Otherwise it's just not worth throwing long-term money at anything. Nobody out there is going to command a multi-year deal outside of these top five or six guys.

As for him being a Boras client... I'm well aware of Dombrowski's fondness for him. Maybe he can at least negotiate a reach-around out of the deal. %-6

Manny was spotted at Toronto's airport today.


what's wrveres doing in toronto? is he your new live-in BF now? i've noticed you guys have been pretty tight as of late. :-B


that dudes a poser. he obviously visited San Diego for a colonoscopy convention or something, and took in a game down the street.

a real padre fan would never allow himself to be photographed in blue, because real padre fans know that the padres don't wear blue. its the color reserved for the hated enemy, and some jerk hollywood owner played a practical joke on san diego a decade ago, and stole our identity.


oh please, we know your love for the roiders (e.g. barry bonds) so without a doubt you wouldn't pass up a photo op with manny. i want to see the picture with manny with his arm around both you and weir.

It's nice that you and the six other Padre fans have come to a collective decision, at least.


That's got to be a Chargers jacket, you guys have to have some exceptions.
