Recapping things involivng the Tigers in February 2012

Tiger Tizzy has been down for a few days due to computer issues.

So now that things are back up and in working order let's take a few minutes and get caught up on what has been going on with the Tigers and some ex Tigers who have been in the news.

Lynn Henning of the Detroit News explains how he thinks that GM Dave Dombrowski will handle all  the young arms that will vie for the Tigers open #5 starter slot. 

Meanwhile, Tony Paul insists that the Tigers would be making a mistake to sign Cuban OF Yoenis Cespedes.

Former Tigers players were in the news over the past few days, with Brad Penny, Edwin Jackson, Armando Galarraga and Carlos Guillen signing contracts with new teams.

Penny signed a contract with Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks of Nippon Professional Baseball, that is reportedly the largest deal for an American pitcher to sign to play baseball in Japan.


Agent Scott Boras got another nice contract for one of his clients, former RHP Edwin Jackson signed a reported 1-year $11-Million deal (with incentives) with the Washington Nationals.

Galarraga signed with the Baltimore Orioles and will be invited to Spring Training with the club.  Galarraga was 3-4 5.91 with the Arizona Diamondbacks last season before being demoted to the minors. 

Guillen signed a minor-league contract with the Seattle Mariners and will also recieve an invite to Spring Training, he returns to the team that he made his Major League Debut with on Sept 6, 1998, as Guillen played with the Mariners from 1998-2003. Guillen was traded to the Tigers on January 8, 2004.

The Tigers also signed a 16-year-old Dominican prospect to a contract. 

I would like to thank John at Budget Computers for his work on my computer.
