It's only a matter of time before the Tigers are linked to every veteran hitter who is getting up there in years and/or coming off a poor 2011 season. Whether or not they have interest in all of those players, who's to say?
Today, for example, the Tigers were in the news -- at least on Twitter -- for the following reported reasons.
- They pushed hard for Roy Oswalt, even had Justin Verlander give him a call, but he does not want to play in Detroit. (CBS Sports' Danny Knobler says.)
- Raul Ibanez and Hedeki Matsui may be of interest. (Knobler)
- Johnny Damon may be of interest (Fox Sports' Jon Paul Morosi)
- Don't forget Juan Pierre. (Morosi and Jim Bowden)
