    Tigers Rumor

    The Tigers need a left-handed bat off the bench almost as badly as they need a left-hand reliever. They will have extra pitchers to dangle, and it would seem someone -- Chad Durbin, for example -- could be joining a guy like Marcus Thames in a trade for either a reliever, a position player, or both.

    Will someone please inform SpecialK(rivsky) know that we can get some nice value out of shipping Cormier and Crosby/Bellhorn to the Tigers?!!!!!!!

    I really don't think the Tigers would be too interested in the Reds garbage. :

    If votto impresses enough hatteberg + cormeir/shackleford for any young starter not named durbin or grilli.

    Personally I'd rather have Ledemza(spelling) or Maroth before I take Durbin.

    Do the tigers have another 1b besides Casey? Last year I remember them having to play Guillen there in the World Series.

    trade them Hatte in a package for an end of the game type reliever (they have more than 3 of them) and put Joey Votto at 1B now. I think he's ready.

    and why would the Tigers want Hatty, Cormier, Crosby ,etc? These guys are a problem, not a solution.

    I agree with you about most of them except Hatteberg, which is why I brought his name up.

    I think he'd be a great LH hitter off the bench for a team like the Tigers/Yanks/BoSox. Come to think of it, I also think Freel as a supersub for those same teams would have great value- in other words we might just get something in return for them, especially Freel.

    I don't like Freel or Hatte as starting players, even for the Reds. But I do like both of them off the bench.

    Just my opinion.

    I would agree but teams aren't going to give up much to acquire a bench player

    Re: Tigers Rumor

    I've got an idea. Crosby, Courmier, and Hatteberg for Andrew Miller, Cameron Maybin AND cash....

    Re: Tigers Rumor

    I think we'd have some parts that could fill either of those roles. I think Cormier could be moved. I looked at the Tigers roster though and they've got a couple of their own old-timers in the pen already - Jones & Mesa, plus Rogers in the rotation. I think Bellhorn or Hatteberg could be of some interest. Bellhorn's on a minor league deal, so I'm not sure how that effects things.

    I'd lovvvvvvvvvvvvvve for the reds to show some trust in a young player like Votto and let them have a job. You still have Conine for short term insurance if Votto complete bombs.

    I completely agree. Even if we got marginal talent from the Tigers for Hattie and Cormier, it restocks the minors and give Salmon/Burton and Votto a shot they deserve.
