There was a lot of talk, and lot of rumors, and quite possibly a late run at Alfonso Soriano that may still get a deal done. However, at the non waiver trade deadline the Detroit Tigers failed to add the right handed bat this team needs. They failed to add a middle of the order bat that could help spark an offense that has yet again gone stone cold. The Tigers are in a funk, and a big trade deadline day kind of move could have helped inspire the team and its fans. Instead General Manger Dave Dombrowski comes up empty and the Tigers lost another game, this time to Mother Nature herself.
