I read this story on Yahoo this evening. It seems like the Tigers have been mentioned as pursuing just about every major free agent this off-season.
To say it would be nice if Carlos Beltran signed with Detroit would be the equivalent of saying Ron Artest is a little unusual. Both would be major understatements. This would make the Pudge signing look like, well, the second biggest signing ever. I’ve been talking about the Tigers trying to get him for a long time on this site.
But they’ve been shot down by just about everyone else (outside of Troy Percival), so I’m not holding my breath.
