I'm getting greedy, but man Jayson Werth as a Tiger would be amazing. The speculation the Tigers are in the running really makes me hope it happens. Martinez-Cabrera-Werth in the middle of the order. I'm drooling.

Jeter just re-signed with the Yanks.

Derek Jeter's new three-year deal with Yankees worth between $45-51M is official, pending physical

It's painful to hear complaining about going from making 19 million to 17 million.

And people wonder why everyone hates the Yankees. Derek Jeter is out of his frickin mind. He doesn't deserve anywhere near $17 million with the numbers he put up last season, nor would ANY other team come remotely close to matching that figure. The Yankees don't have to care, bad contracts don't mean s*** to them.

Maybe Marco Scutaro should get $17 million too. His stats were comparable to Jeter's last season.

It's painful. It's what I hate about baseball. Not sure why there isn't a cap in the MLB. Talk about disproportionate. Yanks payroll, who won Wild Card, was $206,333,389 last season. Next big spender was Boston at $162,747,333.

Ironically here were the successful teams;

National League
Giants who won West & the World Series - $97,828,833
Phillies who won East - $141,927,381
Reds who won Central - $72,386,544

American League
Rays who won AL East - $71,923,471.
Twins who won Central - $97,559,167
Rangers who won west, and lost World Series - $55,250,545

You have no idea how badly I wanted this to happen. Man...

Just read a "rumour" that they are interested in Cliff Lee. haha. Don't see it happening although could be a very good 1, 2 punch with Stephen Strasburg. Unfortunately I think he's going to the Yanks. Gonna guess it's the offer of HUGE money & friendship with CC Sabathia and he will ignore the whole spitting on his family incident during the playoffs. I'd rather see him stay with the Rangers.

It's just been announced that the White Sox re-signed Konerko to a 3-year / $37.5 million deal.

Not that it needs to be said, but this further cements our need for a bat. No one expected Konerko to go anywhere, but this makes it official. I really want to see Maggs return to the outfield, which I've been saying from the get-go. Even before Werth was off the market. I'd take Magglio in right at Comerica over Werth any day.

Well there goes Crawford.

Didn't think he'd sign with the Red Sox; I thought he'd be an Angel most likely. Big payday for him, though. Hopefully we resign Maggs now.

Red Sox lineup looks pretty damn stacked. If there pitching actually holds up they should be back on top in the AL East. Good bye Tampa.

With Boston signing Crawford, the Yankees have added another year to their offer.

Yeah, everyone knew Tampa wouldn't be able to hold that team together, though. They've already made it known to the rest of the league that they'll entertain offers for their rotation as well. Cubs signed Pena, Tigers grabbed Benoit, Red Sox now have Crawford, Soriano is definitely leaving, and reports are coming out that the Cubs are putting together a package for Matt Garza, too.

The Yankees better get Lee because the Red Sox are easily the best team in the American League now with both Crawford and Gonzalez.

It sucks, but at this point it doesn't really matter what other moves the Tigers make.

His agent. ;)

Appears catcher Russel Martin is next free agent that NY/Bos and apparently even Jays (likely using hometown pull) are trying for.

That's true. I will say that if the Red Sox rotation players return to what they were a couple years ago, same with Papelbon, nobody will beat them. But for now, they look like the best offensive team in the league right now. Pedroia, Gonzalez, Crawford, Youkilis, Big Papi....oh Lordy. Imagin if they were able to keep Martinez.

They're not so sure about Papelbon; after he re-signed with New York, it was reported that Boston had made a serious offer to Mariano Rivera.

The Tigers just announced their signing of RF Magglio Ordonez to a 1-year deal.

I am so jacked about this, I don't even care that I'm replying to myself.

1. CF Jackson
2. 2B Rhymes
3. RF Ordonez
4. 1B Cabrera
5. C Martinez
6. DH Guillen
7. LF Boesch
8. SS Peralta
9. 3B Inge

I'm sorry, but that batting order is as stacked as the Tigers have ever been. Peralta was a 4-5 slot guy in Cleveland and he's 7-8 in this order. Obviously, it will change on days that Guillen is at 2B or when Avila catches, but I am thrilled about this line-up.
