    Mikhail actually mentioned this over on the Cabrera thread, but I'm fine with it being a separate thread so I'll comment on it here.

    Seems like a good move. The Tigers need to figure out what went wrong with his mechanics. I've heard others say the guy was just overworked in Fla. I think the guy comes out of Lakeland as Detroit's No. 2 guy after Verlander. Prediction:

    1. Verlander
    2. Willis
    3. Bonderman
    4. Rogers
    5. Robertson

    I don't think this rotation strikes fear into too many A.L. lineups, and I'd much rather have three righties and two lefties. That's why I didn't want them to re-sign Rogers. And if they sign Robertson to a long-term deal, which is what he's asking for, they're nuts.

    Willis was getting dirt for pay back in FLA. Last I heard. Rogers makes about $10M per, and Willis my be better.
    Hope Rogers gets durable because I don't trust Bondo. Rogers is way better.
