Well, it happened. Jacob Turner, goodbye, hello Anibel Sanchez and Omar Infante. This seals the deal for the Central Division and really sets them up for next year. On top of that, they get a second 1st round choice in the draft next year.
The only question now is will Raburn accept an assignment to Toledo or just take his outright release?
I really like this deal even though Sanchez is a free agent at the end of the year. The Tigers can resign him or let him go. From what I have seen, Casey Crosby is the next starting pitching star for the Tigers.
This also says that Porcello will be around for a couple of more years. He needs to miss more bats, he gives up way too many hits, but he is still only 23 years old in his 4th year.
Time to blow that lead wide open now.
Ichiro to the Yankees? I love that too. He is a New York, big time player, and will thrive in that lineup.
