Tigers Sign Todd Jones and an Aborted Trade

Hmmm, this is interesting. Looks like it’s a two year deal, but I haven’t seen the terms, so I’ll hold judgement until then.

I don’t have Insider, but apparantly Peter Gammons broke the news that Javier Vazquez had aborted a trade that would have sent he and possibly Troy Glauss (again, there’s a lot of stories floating around) to the Tigers for Joel Zumaya and Curtis Granderson. While I like both Granderson and Zumaya’s prospects, what a lot of people lose sight of is that while Javier Vazquez was pretty average last year (0 Runs Saved Above Average) and that he’s three years from removed from one his best seasons he still would have been the best arm in the Tigers rotation. Nate Robertson led all Tiger starters with a -5 RSAA to put things in perspective.

Houston declined to offer Roger Clemens arbitration, so he either has to wait until May to sign with the team, go somewhere else, or retire. I was looking forward to one more year of the Rocket, but we’ll have to wait and see.

cbs sports line is reporting that kenny rogers has tenitivly agreed to a 2 yr 16 mil contact, and it could be announced as early as thursday morning!

this is not a good day for tigers news.
we all remember a few years ago when they were fiending to get todd jones out of town.
and now he’s back!!
the relief corps just got another WAY past his prime guy for WAY too much money.
eric king must not have been answering his phone when they called.
