Now let's talk about what the Tigers got. First off, anytime a team gets 4 quality players for two players is a win. The tigers have basically filled six positions for very little. Adam Everret and Robinzon Diaz were basically signed for a bag of bats. Max Scherze is locked up for five years, and a solid pitcher, and he also has different colored eyes. Austin Jackson, who will replace Granderson in center, is MLB ready, number 23 on the MLB prospects list, has great defensive skills and great base running skills. Dan Schlereth is the son of ESPN anaylist Mark Schlereth. He is a great pitcher who climbed up through the Diamondbacks system in only a year. He is a hard thrower that was unhittable in the minor leagues. Phil Coke is a hard throwing pitcher that can make an impact in the bullpen immediately.
At first, I hated the trade, but after a second glance, I like it more and more. The Tigers got a lot of good players for players who didn't produce when it mattered. Curtis was a great guy, but there are plenty of great guys to g around. I want a winning team. It might take a while to get back on top, but at least we still have hope. A change needed to be made, and I am fine with the results. And who says Dombrowski is done making moves? There is more to come, so let's enjoy the ride.
