Tiger Geist would love to see the Tigers and San Francisco Giants hook up on a trade. But the Giants really don't have a need for Marcus Thames. (Unless Thames can still play some first base. In which case, I'd also see if the Mets might be interested.)

It's fluffy, but yesterday's Freep ran a feature on Adam Everett and his family life in Michigan. On and off the field, he and the Tigers have been a pretty good fit.
