This year with Green is one of the few times in the last few decades that the Tigers 9th inning is not a total roller coaster ride.

    I am not saying it is the right move to trade Boyd or Jimenez in truth I think they should keep both; however I say that mostly because I do not trust Avila to get anything close to value for either player let alone get max value.
    It is probably more talk than anything else. Moving Jimenez makes no sense at this time. He hasn't done anything so you get back like what? Now I suppose if they trade him packaged with another player then perhaps that makes more sense. As far trusting AH-vi-la to make a good deal that remains to be seen. We for sure have good pitching prospects but positional players is a huge area where there is nobody close at this time. In fact name a Tiger hitting prospect that you are excited about? That might stump a few fans. This is an area where the are now extended contract GM needs to improve on.

    MIN wants both. Other suitors for Stro are ATL, PHI, NYY and COL. He's my favourite Jay but between injuries and suckiness there hasn't been much to root for. Marcus, we hardly knew ye.

    yeah, he's been fun to have but his time is done here. I'd love to see us try to land a solid CF prospect - Drew Waters from Atl comes to mind as a good fit.
