Bob Nightengale at the USA Today recently twittered (I like that term better) that most executives think Edwin Jackson will be traded soon. He didn’t give the potential suitor, but it’d be nice if there’s a few so Dombrowski can drive up the price and have a choice. I think that’s one of the reasons the Tigers trade rumors have been tempered lately. They’re going to be sellers, but they don’t want to appear too motivated or teams will take advantage of the fact.
The Tigers have already set the bar when they turned down a trade that would have brought Brandon Morrow and Shawn Kelly to the Tigers. It’ll be interesting to see who turns up for this one. For a guy like Granderson, there’s only a few teams that could both take the salary and use him out on the field effectively. Just about every team could have an interest in Jackson.
