    Chris Shelton

    I read over on ORG that Shelton might be avaliable, would Cormier, LaRue & 2-3 million get it done?

    Detroit has Pudge and Vance Wilson (signed through 2008), and as such would have no use for LaRue.

    I remember reading somewhere that they are actually looking for a backup catcher (but preferably a LH hitter). I think Pudge's age (35 I think) has something to do with it. Granted Larue is 32 himself and he isn't a LH, he still has some tools that some teams covet. I think Larue and 2-3 mill for Shelton might just be a good offer for Shelton.

    Losing Larue's contract is a must. But to do this deal is horrible. I personally pass on that offer any day of the year.

    Shelton reminded me of Nick Esasky. Not sure if their stats are comparable.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    I think if they are going to get rid of Shelton, it will be a near giveaway.
