    Didn't Pudge come from Florida? Has he caught DonW.?

    I believe he did catch him when they won the world series.

    We need Pudge because of his ability to draw walks.

    He's also needed for his HR power and base stealing abilities.

    Regardless of his inability to draw walks, he is still a good defensive catcher with a strong arm. And he can still hit .270 or above most likely. And he's a team leader who has been through the battles, i.e., actually won a World Series. He brings a lot of intangibles.

    Rodriquez also handles pitching staffs very well, and call a great game behind the plate. He's especially good with young pitchers.

    Pudge is also bi-lingual which I am sure comes in handy in the locker room.

    The Tigers just signed Nate Robertson to a 3 year, $21 million contract. That effectively solidifies a rotation of Verlander, Bonderman, Willis, Rogers and Robertson.

    Tigers sign Robertson for three years

    Four out of the five (the exception being Kenny) are now signed through at least 2010.

    Is that a good thing? I guess we'll have to wait and see. (Becomes my favorite saying as of late)

    Wow, $7 million per for throwing way too many pitches, getting in too many jams and having a career record of 42-55 and an ERA of 4.60.

    Where did I sign up?

    Well, you have to remember that Robertson is a lefty, and lefties are historically over-paid. The other consideration is that Robertson had a much better year two years ago. Who knows?

    I think this officially makes Chad Durbin trade bait.

    Isn't Durbin gone already? I thought he's a free agent anyway.

    So, you're saying there is still a chance that he'll be playing for us next year?

    No way Roboman will be able to claim lack of run support this year if he has another losing season.

    Nate Robertson will have aroung 17-18 wins this season. This will be several more wins than Jeremy Bonderman.

    For a guy who hit over .300 with runners in scoring position, we got a good deal.
