It's official: we have reached the winter doldrums. The MLB Winter Meetings have come and gone, and save for a few high profile free agents, there probably won't be much more activity in the baseball world until pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training in February.
Last Thursday's trades were a bit unpopular to some Tigers fans at first, but the majority of us have acknowledged that the team is now better than it was at the start of the Winter Meetings. The outfield seems finished, the rotation has five guys in it, and the bullpen... well, it's there. The roster seems mostly finished, especially since Dave Dombrowski isn't following our Ron Swansonian advice to sign all of the relievers.
That presents a problem for us at BYB, though. Our chances to think up crazy trades and free agent signings are wearing thin. Winter is here, and the offseason sucks.
That doesn't mean that the Tigers are done, though. Many people want to see the team sign another reliever, while others want them to sign 10. The rotation seems set, but Max Scherzer is still available. The lineup isn't perfect, but the defensive upgrades might outweigh any offensive shortcomings.
There is always room for improvement, but I want to know what you think. Do the Tigers need to make any additional moves in order to be favorites to win the AL Central this year? If so, what are they?
