    I know it's a bit early but there will be a bunch of rumors and gossip starting and this is a good place to put it and see all our roster moves.



    ESPN has an Insider article about where Josh Hamilton will be landing and lists Rangers, White Sox, and Tigers as "best" guesses. I think that would be awesome if he came here, just don't think he fits in and our salary would be astronomical.

    If we had Hamilton in our lineup we'd have some all time record slumps. You guys would kill him if he didn't hit a HR every game. First game of the season: 0-5, 3 Ks. FIRE LEYLAND! FIRE DD!! BLYLE GLARGEN!

    We won't be chanting anything about "Fire Leyland" because he won't be our manager in 2013.

    Totally agree. But don't forget all of the days off he takes for the little injuries . More than most. I love his bat especially being left handed. But I think with that kind of money we can get two solid hitters and a pitcher and still have a few bucks left over. And with VMart coming back its like a FA signing. Plus JP has a 6 million team option . Not much on the market for shortstops. Scuturo and Drew maybe the best but unless we can get one for around JP money or less we have to resign JP. Not really the best option but at least it an option.

    I am more concerned about extending Cabrera's contract than anything. This should be priority #1, and no thought should be put into a Hamilton signing until a long term extension is given to Cabby

    Miggy is signed for 3 more seasons and JV is signed for 2 more. I doubt either of them get extensions this offseason.

    Buster Olney thinks David Price could be available this off season. Oh man I would go nuts if the Tigers got him and teamed him up with JV.

    It seems like every other winter DD pulls off a huge trade. Wasn't last summer, so its gotta be this one. If it was Price (which I highly highly doubt), I'd be in heaven

    Bye bye farm system? You know he's a free agent so we wouldn't have to deal them.
