I don't know how many Tigers games you have seen this season. I have en many and listened to the rest. Sizemore was having issues. many issues. he had to go. With a batting order of, Inge, Lard, Sizemore, and Everett, opposing pitchers had a nice break. Something HAD to be done. Guillen is like Damon in that he can spoil off pitch after pitch and run up a pitch count. He hits too. His contract is gigantic. Maybe he will feel like he has to earn the money. Hope so.Peace.
You're absolutely right, and I don't mind the move at all. I think Guillen's bat is good enough that you need to find a place for him somehow. This is more a commentary on that contract. It is such a bad contract that the Tigers have been forced to play him in SIX different positions in three years just to get him in the game. That's brutal.I agree that Sizemore was overmatched and I think Guillen will fit in perfectly fine there. I'm just wondering what they do NEXT YEAR, considering the contract will still be active and he is definitely not a long-term solution at 2B.
13 freaking million next year. Maybe he will have a Magglio-ish revival. It has been great watching Mags return to form this season. lets hope he keeps it going.
