Detroit Tigers Links: Ian Kinsler is ready for Detroit & Don Kelly's chances to make 25-man roster

David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

Ian Kinsler is ready for all that awaits him this season, Don Kelly's chances to make the 25-man roster, and the Tigers' first full workout focuses heavily on baserunning. Oh, also, someone drove a tractor to practice yesterday. My money is on Dirks.

In all honesty ... I haven't been this excited about a Tigers team in awhile. I just can't wait to see how all of the offseason moves come together.

Lineup discussion: AL Central
SweetSpot Blog, David Schoenfield

"Key question: How do they replace Prince Fielder's production and presence?" Fair question, I guess. But when I think about the season, that question really doesn't even cross my mind.

Motor City Bengals, Josh Paulisin

There's actually only one thing they need to do, which is win more than everyone else. But perhaps that's too simplistic.
