Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE
The Tigers like Rule 5 pickup Jeff Kobernus so much, they compared him to a career .232 hitter.
Considering the previous Don Kelly had been released twice by the Tigers since August, you would think the last thing the team needs is another Don Kelly. So Danny Knobler's recent tweet from MLB's Winter Meetings just made the hair stand up on the back of my neck.
Tigers excited by both guys they got in Rule 5, but especially Kobernus. "He's the new Don Kelly," one Tigers person said.— DKnobler (@DKnobler) December 6, 2012
I think the Tigers just insulted Jeff Kobernus.
