Tigers Sign Jose Mesa

The Tigers signed former closer Jose Mesa to a one year, $2.5 million deal last night.  I really hope the Tigers aren’t blinded by all of those saves because Jose Mesa has been pretty mediocre the past few years.  His strikeout to walk ratio last year was pretty attrocious (39/36) and he hasn’t a WHIP under 1.37 since his last solid season in 2002.  And this is also the guy who’s threatened Omar Vizquel because of some comments the Giants shortstop made about Mesa in his book.

Taken by it self, this is an unusual signing.  A friend of mine said he felt a deal must be in the works for one our other relievers and I tend to agree with him because take by itself, this one doesn’t make sense.
