I didn’t want to report this ESPN.com report until it was a confirmed signing. Mostly because I was trying to deny it as best I could.
(AP): “He brings a veteran presence and a wealth of experience in a variety of roles to help strengthen our bullpen,” Tigers president Dave Dombrowski said.
What is the reaction across Tigers nation? Confusion mainly. I don’t like the deal. I don’t see the point in paying $2.5M for an older guy who is not as good as the younger, cheaper guys we already have. It doesn’t make much sense. Unless there is a trade in the makings. I’ll reserve judgement until all facts are known, but gut-reaction was basically what the heck?!
Bilfer agrees, although he uses more words. All the people in his comments agree too, and there’s some trade speculation to read.
