In what can be titled as The Most Boring Winter Meetings Ever…for the Tigers, the third full day was a little more eventful, but has still to this point resulted in talks and speculation. Gio Gonzalez trade rumors broke at about 1am eastern time and while there was a quick flurry of excitement, it was [...]
From @susanslusser on twitter who covers the Oakland A’s for the San Fransisco Chronical: I learned from multiple Detroit team sources tonight that the Tigers have strong interest in Gio Gonzalez and they probably would be willing to part with top prospect Jacob Turner, a right-handed starter, in any deal.

Thanksgiving Eve (November 24th) at midnight was the deadline for all clubs to announce their arbitration offers to qualifying members of the team. 29 teams faxed their orders in to the league office on time, at least 29 we were told of. No one knows of the Tigers status with players such as Magglio Ordonez [...]
…well, it’s more than that. Not even the best players in the game have done what he has before he’s even turned 30. Not Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Ken Griffey Jr. etc. He is one of two pitchers in the history of the game to win a Rookie of the Year, a Most [...]
