    Cliff Floyd To Tigers?- Rumor

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/

    "Cliff Floyd To Tigers?
    John Delcos, writer for The Journal News, has a Cliff Floyd rumor that's been making the rounds. The rumor seems more on the speculative side; I'm not sure that Delcos is suggesting that the Tigers have asked about Floyd specifically.

    Instead, Delcos's friend may have just been curious about the Mets' interest, which apparently is slim. But let's see which Tiger arms could perhaps be enough to acquire Floyd, an impending free agent. Floyd had a very rough start but has hit .267/.383/.489 in May - pretty close to career norms.

    Humberto Sanchez and Jordan Tata come to mind as two very marketable commodities for GM Dave Dombrowski. Both are close to Major League ready and bring low 90s heat. Sanchez has a 1.84 ERA and 1.04 WHIP in 10 Double A starts this season. Tata handled himself capably in a brief Major League stint this season, and is back to starting games in Triple A. "

    If there's one farm system that's on the top of my list to raid, it's gotta be Detroit's. And this is the first time they're contending in a decade or two, so they'll probably be willing to give up good prospects.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    They are pretty ripe. And while it appears that Detroit has a decent amount of offense on its own, Kearns would be a good bat and decent glove to add to their lineup.

    They want & need a LH Bat, this is why Floyd is a possible target.
