    "improving" is a bit of a misnomer. Detroit is improving for a 1 year run, provided the Mitchell report doesn't submarine some of their lineup. and even if it doesn't, they still hang their hopes on the notion that the oft injured 40 year old sheffield can still go, that pudge can still hang in there, than the gambler can give them a full season, and that dontrelle willis really isn't a hack. all of that while hoping ordonez can duplicate his career year numbers.

    on paper, detroit is a better ballclub. however, a few injuries, and they are in some trouble.

    as for the indians, if they give up a chunk of the farm to net haren and/or chavez, i'd almost bank on CC getting dealt if he doesn't sign before the trade deadline.

    Totally agree with your comments regarding the Tigers. Plus there one year plan might not pan out if a couple of their "older" players don't even make it through the season.

    I would like to make the deal for Harren because I don't think it necessarily means we still would not be able to afford C. C. Harren it is signed through 2010 starting and a little over 5 mil and increasing 1 mil each year through 2010. Plus getting Harren for really an "unknown" prospect like Miller does not bother me. I have heard they want Miller, Laffey, Sowers, and possibly Crowe. If they would take Lee instead of Laffey, I would say deal for Harren.

    I am not sure about Chaves because he has been injured off and downed the past couple seasons and I would think that the price would be too steep if we wanted him to be included in a deal.

    I was listening to a sports talk show on STO a week or two ago and they said that the Athletics have another "quality" pitcher that they may be shopping. I have forgotten his name and too lazy to look at the roster.

    Blanton. Meh.
  13. LitlBuck

    LitlBuck I Don't Want Any Trouble

    Yup. It was Blanton. Would he be worth a look see? I know it would be depend on what they would want for him but is he even worth a look or are our 5 starters all better.

    I don't see where he'd be big enough an upgrade to warrant moving prospects.

    I guess that I am getting tired of Shapiro holding on to "prospects". At least Blanton is a proven major league pitcher. I guess my question is how long do we keep on holding on to other "prospects" without trying to upgrade.
