Of course ESPN is going to say "future hall of famer" thousands of times tonight, but Pudge has not been very good for about 2 years now. The tigers need bullpen help much more than they need an every other day catcher. It's kind of sad to see him go because he was the beginning of the turnaround for Detroit, but the trade makes sense.
Farnsworth is the antithesis of bullpen help, have fun.
Compared to Todd Jones, Farnsworth looks like the future hall of famer.
I'm not going to say that it was a bad deal for Detroit, especially since it seems that Pudge was growing tired of Detroit. Plus Farnsworth did have success during his last tenure in Detroit. I really like the deal from the Yankees standpoint, though.
