« Tigers Go Out Winning Before the Break | USA Wins Tight Pitching Battle Over World in the Futures All Star Game »

I like this deal. Bernero was less then impressive, and I don’t see him as part of the future. And the way the other Tiger starters have been pitching, he was bottom of the barrell.

Any help at catcher is a benefit. Even if Petrick came in and hit .230/.290/.400 or close to that, it would be a dramatic improvement. Over his short ML career, he doesn’t have much of a platoon split, but one started to develop last year when he was much more effective against lefties. Down at AAA he was hitting .269 with 11 home runs in 228 at bats, although Colorado was trying to convert him to an outfielder, so I’m not sure how much time he’s gotten behind the plate as of late.
