His split finger was nasty.

Kinsler traded to Angels for 2 mid-level prospects. About what I expected. Looks mostly like a salary dump.

Nothing much, pure salary dump. Also limited by Kinsler's no trade clause as well as a flooded 2B market. Not to mention he's 35 and had poor numbers last year.

Saves $11 million, gets Macahdo to play everyday, and clears a roster spot for another potenial Rule 5 pick/FA.

You wonder how much smoke there is to a Fulmer deal. I have no problem moving him. None.

Not a huge K guy. Teams will pay massive prospects for a cost controlled former ROY on the cheap for 5 years. That injury hurts his value (one reason I was fine with moving him pre-injury) but he seems to be alright. You always listen on a young pitcher when he's not an ace.

Our SP is 2-3 years away with the top 4 SP prospects, not to mention possibly Singer in June. Fulmer is a fine #2/3, but he's no ace.

man I don’t know. I wouldn’t trade Fulmer unless they get a huge haul. Saying he’s not an ace is a stretch when he’s still growing into the majors. If they trade him there’s no end in sight for this rebuild

Man, I gotta wonder who the Tigers are targeting with all this money they're freeing up.

Because it can't POSSIBLY be that Chris I. is gonna run this team on the cheap and pocket all the extra cash!

I dont think msot of us figured we'd get absolutely nothing for all these guys..... Usually part of a rebuild is getting decent prospects in return for your former all stars... With Avila at the helm this team may not see the playoffs for a decade.
