Open Thread: 8/26/05 Tigers @ Red Sox

vs.

Jason Johnson (7-9, 4.09) vs. Tim Wakefield (12-10, 4.29) tonight in Boston, as the Tigers look to extend their series winning streak against the Sox to 2.

You know, I've always assumed that Johnson wouldn't be a Tiger next year, with his contract expiring at the end of the season. He's pitched well, though, and maybe the Tigers should look to bring him back if they can swing something in the range of 2 years, $8 million. This speculation comes hot off the news that Tigers' owner Mike Illitch called Rondell White, recuperating from surgery, and said he'd like Rondell to return to the team.
