Free Press' Tigers All-Decade Team

2

This speaks to just how bad the Tigers were. The second team could be expected to have won what, 65 games, with those players at their peaks? That even sounds too much. 60 maybe? And some of the guys on the first team aren't particularly good either. Bobby Higginson had two good seasons as a Tiger this decade (more last decade) but that earns him First Team honors (which I actually agree with, as I can't think of someone to put above him!)

Odds & Ends: Dodgers, Beltre, Morrow: MLB Rumors - MLBTradeRumors.com

1

According to MLBtraderumors.com, via ESPN MLB Rumors - The Tigers would be one of the teams interested in Adrian Beltre if his price drops. I'm notorious for being a perpetual Inge "hater" but even I think this is ridiculous. Beltre has shown me nothing to think that for 3-4 million more and a new contract that he would be better suited for the Tigers at 3B than Inge is. I'm kind of hoping this is what it is, just a silly rumor, and DD wouldn't go throwing money at Beltre.

Justin Duchscherer re-signs with Oakland

I know some people were wondering about "Duke" as a Tiger. He re-upped with the A's for one year, costing many Tigers writers the possibility of misspelling his name every five days.

Angels Sign Fernando Rodney

50

Via MLB Trade Rumors. It's reported to be a 2-year, $11 million deal, which is significantly lower than the 3 years, $30 million that Rodney was asking for. As with Brandon Lyon, the Tigers will get a sandwich pick between the first and second rounds.

Reminder: BYB Holiday Meet-Up, December 26

5

Just a reminder, as many people will probably be traveling over the next day or so, that the BYB Holiday Meet-Up will be this coming Saturday, December 26. We'll be meeting at Mexican Village in Detroit at 1 p.m. If you're reading this, and think you might be attending, please leave a comment, if you can. It could help a little bit with planning. I know a couple of people originally planned to attend, but no longer will be. If you have any questions, leave them here too.

MLBTR: Angels in Serious Discussions with Rodney

Seems like the Angels are scrambling and, well, let's just say I'm glad I'm not an LAnaheim fan.

Update on Tigers and Podsednik/Ankiel

9

I know the thought of Scott Podsednik coming to the Tigers isn't popular with...well...anyone on this site (Personally, I have no opinion). Jon Paul Morosi tweets that the Tigers are still interested in him, but only on a one-year deal. Additionally, the Tigers are NOT interested in Rick Ankiel

Path of the Pros: Brandon Inge

1

MiLB.com has a bit of a fluff article on Inge's minor league career. The bulk of the content is an interview with Bruce Fields, former Mud Hen manager and father of Daniel Fields (Tigers' 2009 SS draftee).
