    Two needs still not filled!

    Since the end of last season two needs that I have constantly brought up were a LH power bat and a LH bullpen arm. These are still not met and it's going to cost us games. With Dirks out now it will hurt even more. We increased our defense and speed, as well as, the closer role but these two areas NEED to be addressed if we are to become a World Series threat.

    If I were a betting man I'd say the roster as we pretty much imagine it will stay as is. Dombrowski will hedge his bets, foolishly in my opinion on Lambardozzi or Don Kelly to rotate out in LF with Davis while Dirks is gone. Barring at setbacks Dirks will be our deadline addition.

    We had a LF power bat and we traded him.

    Yep! Iggy (in return of that trade) replaces the likes of Perez, Worth....etc. The front office plan was shift team salary money slotted in 2013 for SS, to other parts of the roster.

    These needs will most likely stay unfilled. We have nothing in our system to trade away aside from actual big league players. Trading one of them would open up another hole. We may be able to get a BP arm, because the cost may not be high...but I think that'll be about it.

    Unless...of course we trade someone like Porcello or Max...but hey, that isn't happening.

    You would have resigned Peralta though to play SS

    Not Porcello. Many teams have un-fill needs. Trading a need because someone in the minors is ready to step in is okay for non contending teams, not for a team favored to win it all like the Tigers. As the long season progress, teams that are out will be ready to dump and that is where we will get our need. This is a class organization that treats it's players right. Can't say that for many clubs.

    I would have signed him to play third base. NC is NOT the answer.

    Is that before or after Nick's 30 projected errors playing full-time?

    Hopefully he improves every season.

    I forgot that baseball is only defense. I guess Miggy playing 3B the past couple years was a disaster too. Man stupid Tigers.

    If Nick C doesn't win the Triple Crown this year he will be a colossal failure.
