OK.....I know most posters here love to applaud every move their team makes while poo pooing the enemy. Every player you add is a star and everyone you move is a bust. Lets reverse that for a moment. While there is still time in the off season for a big trade, most big names are off the table and you can get a sense of how your team is headed into training camp. mine is easy.
Trading Doug Fister for a couple B-rated pitching specs and a utility IF. Fister isn't an ace, but he is as good a #3/4 there is in baseball. What did the Tigers get? A young but low ceiling utility player in Lombardozzi. A lefty reliever in Krol and a B-Rated SP that isn't high on anyones radar. I have no beef with moving Fister, but I would like to think there would have been better offers on the table had he been actively shopped. Maybe he was, but this was the best they could do?
I also would have liked to have seen them make a qualifying offer to Infante, but I can live with that.
