I think they're showing him a ton of respect by basically letting him decide when he wants to retire. I think he'll get one year deals until he's ready to retire. He's already been on record saying that Detroit is his last stop.

They weren't going to fire him(or shall I say not bring him back) after leading them to the WS. And I doubt they are going to let him retire on his own terms with the next bad season(s) he has.

Smart move. They are in win-now mode and he's better with the bat than Delmon Young and better with the glove than almost anyone they could put in the outfield.

Doesn't sound that likely.

I think Det is really screwing things up with him though.

I've heard Porch to STL is going to happen at some point. STL is too loaded with prospects to not make it happen, and the teams have been talking here and there. It's just a matter of when STL feels like it's time and then has to up the ante. Could have him for much less right now.

Well if SG still wants Porcello now may be the time to call. He just had maybe the worst start I've ever seen.

There is baseball, and occasionally there are other things of note

"Making his own olive brine is peak Mackus."

@MLB: #Tigers sign RHP Jose Valverde to 1-year deal. He will join the club tomorrow and manager Jim Leyland says he will be the team’s closer.

1. I thought he already signed and was in their system.

 

2. Is this in addition to Rondon?

No, he was a FA. Was waiting to see where he was going to end up.

 

Yep.

I think in this case the "signed to a major-league contract" is one of those anachronistic baseball terms like "purchasing a contract" from an affiliate.

Ah, I guess I was wrong. Thought I remember reading about some other teams checking in on him as a FA with their own closing issues.
