Personally...

I love this deal! Everett is a no bat-all glove type player. In case somebody does not know what that means... Everett is known as having a crap bat, but a great glove. So this improves the defense significantly plus allows us to keep Joyce and Larish.

Also a low cost move.

This means that we could deal Larish for JJ Putz. It also saves us enough money to sign Kerry Wood which has been a rumor out there.

I love this deal!

Welcome to Detroit Adam!

I don't know I am a twins fan, and I couldn't stand him last season. I wasn't impressed by his glove at all. I mean it's above average, but no nick punto. I don't even want to get started on the hitting.

Renteria 2007 = .972
Everett 2007 = .967

I know fielding % isn't everything, but you can't ignore it. At least it's only 1 yr and 1 million.

You can't really go wrong with this deal. I mean it's only one year in length...

I like the way the tigers are going. Trying to get more defense to help the shaky pitching rotation.

I don't care for Everett, but if he sucks or hurt too much, very little is invested. If he doesn't perform and one of the kids is doing well in the minors, it would be a cheap person to cut or trade. At least it isn't another year of $12 million underperforming, uninspired, cost us JJ Renteria.

You absolutely can ignore it. Look up zone rating or defensive win shares or runs saved or range factor. Before the injury Everett was the best defensive shortstop in baseball.

Nice pick up! 1yr 1 mil, he'll proform, after all it a contract yr, and he only got 1million!

For the price, you can't beat this deal. He and Santiago will probably platoon and if Everett sucks it up, we don't lose much. Drop him and bring up one of the young guys early. Good stop gap cost saving move. I don't like Everett, but defense is one of the things that killed us last year. It is mightily upgraded this year.

I watched Adam for years in Houston. The guy makes it look easy. He is always in the right place at the right time. No, he doesn't make diving stops for ESPN's Top 10 because he is already there and doesn't need to dive. He should have had the Gold Glove in 06 but Omar beat him out (rip off in my idea).

Your lineup could make up for the fact that his OPS has not topped .300 in four years. He should bat 9th. His only good season with a bat was in 2004, but he ended up braking his wrist.

I know he had health problems with the Twins last year but his injuries in Houston were flukes:
04-Fastball to the wrist
07-Slide tackeled by Carlos Lee (no joke, look it up)

If you want defense, this is your guy. Go to a game, watch him be in position before the ball is hit. In a day and age where defense gets overlooked, he will be the bright side for a team that has a 400 pound 1B.

For all of you Inge haters, I cant wait to hear you complain about Adam Everett hitting .220

I don't see the difference between him and Santiago, except Santiago had a better 2008.

well thank god we will have a number 9 hitter that can hit more than .205.. hahahaha, i will probably rip him everyday for sucking at the plate.. i think santiago deserves the opportunity to start first and if he starts to wear down, then throw Everett in there

I would have just rolled with Santiago, unless we could have gotten a Nick Punto, Rafael Furcal, or a Michael Young.

You guys got a steal for what he has with a glove
1 million..wow

Sure hes not much if any at the plate...but he really makes up for it in the field
He was great down here in Houston as an Astro

Thank You! Everyone was complaining about how Inge was only hitting .230 and how he was a huge hole in the lineup. Defense wins championships! I think we pretty much proved that in 2006 when we couldn't field anything. So what if we have some sub .250 hitters at the bottom of the lineup we got potential for four or five .320 hitters at the top of the lineup. With Inge at 3rd and Everett at SS our left side is going to be pretty hard to get anything through. Now we just gotta figure out our bullpen.

I just don't see what this guy has that Santiago doesn't have. I mean, you can pretty much depend on Santiago hitting whatever this guy is going to hit and playing as good or better D. So then, what gives? I don't understand this deal at all.

You can't possibly compare Everett to Inge. Everett's going to cost 1 million dollars. Inge costs almost 7 times that amount for a slightly better bat and an inferior glove. Everett isn't a great player, but he's an absolute bargain compared to Inge.

Everett and Inge at the bottom of the order. there are 2 rally killers right there.

Well, Everett's the best defensive SS in all of Baseball. So he kinda has that going for him.

Santiago is silky smooth too. One could argue that the gap between Santiago's hitting ability and Everett's hitting ability is bigger than the gap between Everett's fielding ability and Santiago's fielding ability.

I predict that it'll start as a platoon and Santiago will eventually win the job for himself.

I will say this, though: it's refreshing to see Detroit go after some defense for a change. Hopefully the pitching will benefit from this.
