Rule 5 Shutout and Joel Zumaya

The Tigers not only didn’t pick a player in yesterday’s rule 5 draft (which isn’t a surprise), but they also didn’t have a player taken from them.  I’m not sure if this is an expression of the Tigers mediocre farm system or just luck, but it is what is.  The Tigers have had some moderate short term luck with the Rule 5 picks with the team still trying to contend, it doesn’t make sense to carry a minor league player on the roster for the entire year.

The Tigers admitted tha signing Fernando Rodney is a long shot so now everyone is naming Joel Zumaya the 2010 closer.  He’s had a couple (okay, a few) rough years so I think this premature.  I know he only has a year of MLB experience under his belt, but I think Ryan Perry gets the job out of camp.
