Trade Deadline Open Thread

If the Tigers don't make another addition today, it will be the quietest deadline in Detroit in years.

The non-waiver trade deadline is today at 4 p.m. ET. Rumors are swirling about most of the teams in the league, but little is being said about the Tigers. Could they be standing pat, seeing Joakim Soria as the only necessary addition, or is Dave Dombrowski and company just good at keeping a secret? A recent history of the trade deadline in Detroit:

July 30, 2013 – The Tigers acquired Jose Iglesias in a three-team trade with the Red Sox and White Sox, sending away Avisail Garcia and Brayan Villarreal.

July 29, 2013 – The Tigers sent Danry Vasquez and a PTBNL (David Paulino) to the Astros for reliever Jose Veras.

July 23, 2012 – The Tigers traded Jacob Turner, Rob Brantly, and Brian Flynn to the Marlins for Omar Infante and Anibal Sanchez.

July 30, 2011 – The Tigers sent Casper Wells, Charlie Furbush, Francisco Martinez, and a PTBNL (Chance Ruffin) to the Mariners for Doug Fister and David Pauley.

July 20, 2011 – The Tigers traded Antonio Cruz and Julio Rodriguez to the Royals for Wilson Betemit.

July 28, 2010 – The Tigers sent Giovanni Soto to the Indians for Jhonny Peralta.

July 31, 2009 The Tigers traded Luke French and Mauricio Robles to the Mariners for Jarrod Washburn.

So as you can see, if Soria remains the only acquisition the Tigers make this month, it will be the smallest splash Dombrowski and his crew have made at the deadline in half a decade. Use this thread for all your deadline day discussion, and let us know what you think the Tigers will do in the poll.
