We talked about John Parrish the other day and now it looks like the Tigers have their eyes set on Brandon Lyon. Lyon has that intangible closer experience (Yes, I’m being sarcastic) and he saved 26 games for the Diamondbacks last year. 2007 was probably his best season when he was a setup man and he finished with a 2.68 ERA in a career high 74 innings.
I guess I just don’t know why the Tigers don’t give a guy like Casey Fien a shot. The kid has had some very good years in the minors and would probably make a good one or two inning reliever. I guess the Tigers just don’t have the confidence in Fernando Rodney or they wouldn’t still be shopping for a bargain closer.
It’s definitely some time to give some Super Bowl Props with the playoffs over and done with. I haven’t seen any Super Bowl Odds yet, but it looks like this Super Bowl is going to be one for the ages. And the fact that the Cardinals finally got in means they’ve made it a lot further as a franchise then the Lions have.
