The Detroit Tigers and the hot stove have been getting nice and cozy lately. Big names such as Yoennis Cespedes, Jacob Turner, Placido Polanco, Brennan Boesch, Gio Gonzalez, Joel Zumaya, Daniel Murphy, and plenty more continue to be tossed around the rumor mill.

DALLAS — A lean and pasty ginger-haired man came over to where I was sitting, tugged at the name badge around my neck and introduced himself.
"Hi, I'm Robert Fick," he said. My day had been made — and that was before Fick said that he had become a player agent. He had?! And he's sober after coming to terms with being an alcoholic. Even better.
Joel Zumaya throws about 100 mph, but has been dealt with constant injuries over the past couple of years. His latest injury was an elbow fracture that has kept him out for 18 months and has required two surgeries.
