DETROIT What now for the Tigers? Signing right fielder Torii Hunter was a great start, but my guess is that there will be at least two more significant deals or signings. Deciding what to offer pitcher Anibal Sanchez -- whose interest will heighten after top pitcher free-agent Zack Greinke signs -- and making at least one significant starting lineup move appear to be in the offing. Much of the talk has been about pursuing an everyday left fielder. But neither trading for Justin Upton -- who looks to be staying with the Diamondbacks -- nor signing free agents such as Cody Ross or Ryan Ludwick make much sense.

  • Nice article, I have a few small objections..........Wasn't Mr Coke knocking 'em dead before they changed him to a starter? Do you trust Sanchez to be the September-Oct Sanchez all the time with his history? It bothers me. With a strong person at SS, Porcello wouldn't have to go being a ground ball pitcher. He was killed by the infield this year. Put people with range at SS and 2nd and they win. They can war the world away with numbers but if they now get Elvis they have to be the favorite and pitching is always at a premium. Young pitchers aching to make their mark and how many do we have backed up in the minors???? Here's one for ya......get Andrus and what can they get for Peralta. Now that is an article. You write nice stuff
