Now this is what I’m talking about. Way back before the 2005 season, Magglio Ordonez didn’t appear to have any suitors. Not only the Tigers step and take the risk on him, but they signed him to a big deal. Now in 2011, Ordonez appears headed back to Detroit at a home town discount. The price is high ($10 million) but it’s only a one year deal so there’s not a lot of risk there.
So now the Tigers lineup is relatively set and it’s not even Christmas. If Ordonez can continue what he started in 2010, having him and Victor Martinez to back up Miguel Cabrera could be huge. I still have some concerns about the pitching, but I like this move.
