I don't know anything about the politics or dynamics behind the Tigers organization, but am looking at drafting Al over Bruce Rondon. What do y'all think?
I'm thinking if they don't make a trade, Leyland will use the dreaded closer-by-committee. Alburquerque was terrible in Detroit's loss yesterday, so I doubt he will be looked at any more favorably than Benoit, Coke, Dotel and (if he breaks camp) Rondon.
