A few bits of "breaking" news for you, as it were.
Tom Gage of the Detroit News provided two notes on his Twitter account:
- "We are not signing Jeremy Bonderman" GM Dave Dombrowski said.
- Added on Vladimir Guerrero: "Not a fit for us."
Dombrowski is cutting my possible topics to write about off before I can even get to them, I guess.
Guerrero was clearly not a fit from the start, not a fit for the team as Dombrowski sees it anyway. You can quibble about the Victor Martinez-Alex Avila-Guerrero grouping if you want, but it wasn't going to happen.
Bonderman, I thought might be a nice addition if he was interested in a minor league contract. Maybe Bonderman just isn't. Or maybe, as Gage speculates, Bonderman is close to signing elsewhere. In either way, not going to happen it is.
