|2009 Topps Alfredo Figaro Silk|
File this under "news that doesn't really matter, but I'm going to write about it anyway because it's short and I need to keep this blog active and I have a cool card of Alfredo Figaro that I need post or I'll never have a reason to show it again and oh, this does happen to open up a roster spot just in case the Tigers decide to make a move at some point."
Anyway, Alfredo Figaro has decided to play the 2011 season in Japan for the Orix Buffalos on a $500,000 contract. Not too bad for a player ticketed for Toledo this season.
This comes from Twitter, where the Tigers have also been linked to Josh Willingham, and I have had fun making fictitious deals out of other teams' news like: A Tom Gorzellany & Kosuke Fukudome package that fills two holes for the Tigers while clearing payroll for the Cubs, or how about getting in the mix on a Carlos Beltran trade with the Mets?
Ahh trade rumors.
