    My bad I thought we were all playing for the World Series.
    Still a solid season for the Tigs.

    Obviously, the Tigers are trying to win a World Series. The MVP is a regular season award for the most outstanding player. It has nothing to do with the playoffs. The voting actually takes place BEFORE the playoffs.

    This is kind of a shocker. At first glance, I don't like it. I don't think Fielder was given enough of a chance. But I never liked Fielder's contract either.

    Hopefully there is another player hidden in the deal for the Tigers....we need either a another pitcher or another catcher....

    I really like Fielder.

    If you put Castellanos at 3B and move Miggy back to 1B, you're just fin. Adding a true leadoff hitter and an All-Star caliber 2B fills two of the team's biggest weaknesses.

    The other player might be another Tiger (i.e., Porcello) leaving in order for Texas to have to deal with Fielder's monster contract without Detroit having to eat part of it.

    He is a pretty solid all-around second basemen. He will give you 20 stolen bases, plus he will also give you 20 home runs and 70 rbi. His defense is very good with his range being near the top of the AL. Omar Infante will be long gone.

    If Fielder loses 30 pounds and keeps it off...he'll make us pay for trading him.

    The holiday season needs to be more festive.
    It should put a smile on one's face.
    I'm trying to do my part.
