    Magglio not being shopped

    per MLBTR:

    Tigers president/GM Dave Dombrowski says he isn't looking to trade Magglio Ordonez, despite speculation that the right fielder is available.

    Dombrowski said he hasn't made a single call about Ordonez.

    "We're not looking to trade Magglio," Dombrowski said. "He's one of the best hitters in baseball and an important part of our club."

    As MLB.com's Jason Beck rightly points out, this doesn't mean the Tigers won't listen to offers for Ordonez.

    In September, the Detroit Free Press' John Paul Morosi said the Tigers would need to trade Ordonez if they were going to fill their many needs. The Tigers are in the market for a shortstop to replace Edgar Renteria, and could also use an upgrade in the rotation, at closer and at catcher. Considering their stated intention not to raise payroll, it's hard to see how Detroit is going to do all that, or even some of that, without trading Ordonez. But I guess that's why they pay Dombrowski the big bucks.

    Thanks for the update.

    Still, it sounds just like posturing. Dombrowski needs to say that so that he can get the best value for Ordonez. I bet he gets traded.

    Agreed. Because when you say "I want to get rid of this guy" you get return like Kenny Williams did for Nick Swisher, and that is not good return.
    Baseball is not necessarily an obsessive-compulsive disorder, like washing your hands 100 times a day, but it's beginning to seem that way. We're reaching the point where you can be a truly dedicated, state-of-the-art fan or you can have a life. Take your pick. ~Thomas Boswell

    Having a life is overrated.

    I don't know guys. The original rumor about Magglio was just a journalist's speculation looking over their roster. I read somebody in their FO disputing it shortly after it came out. A different, earlier report than this one.

    Sounds like just about everyone but Granderson is being shopped in Detroit.

    And for good reason. That team needs a shake-up, on top of all that we all know how poorly that city is doing financially. Too bad they couldn't seal the deal a few years back.
