    If Inge gets traded it will probably be for either

    1. A catcher
    2. A relief pitcher who can pitch effectively in the 7th and 8th inning
    3. Prospect or prospects.

    More from Dontrelle's agent:

    It sounds like Dontrelle wants to be a Tiger long-term.

    You mean Andruw.

    1. The power impaired Dodgers were desperate for some pop.
    2. He is still a darn good defender, a far better CF than Juan P.
    3. See #1 and #2
    4. The casual internet fan of which there are a lot in Los Angeles think that if you spend a lot of money on a guy with a good resume you are doing something good for the team. Besides, what $18 million a year in Los Angeles/Las Vegas, where movie stars make over $100K just to show up for a New Years party.

    our owner is doing what he has said he would do...... he refused to pay for a loser but when the time came the tigers had turned the corner he's going to pay out like he did with the wings.

    players only have to look at the wings on how classy an owner we have and with our success the last two years we are turning into a wonderful place to play year round..... now somehow we need to mind control ford..... lol

    The big thing was to hire right people. Red Wings have Devellano and Holland, and brought in Bowman, Tigers hired Dombrowski and brought in Leyland. Pistons got Joe D who built the team and then brought in LB who took the team to the championship. Lions got crap. Even when Tuna was available they probably didn't even take a stab at bringing him to fix the organization.

    Willis was at the game last night and received a very warm reception. I was expecting him to wear a Sheed jersey but I think he didn't want to get teased about it :p

    I think if he wins 17 or more games in 2008 he will be able to wear what ever Pistons jersey he wants.
