Brad Penny to the Tigers

Per Buster Olney

$3M deal with $3M in incentives sounds great to me. The Tigers badly need pitching rotation depth and Penny is a nice addition. Gives them the flexibility to put Coke back in the bullpen if need be, or have Armando in the minors for a while. Not a cure-all, but if healthy, Penny could really help this team down the stretch.


  1. I like the Penny signing. It's basically already acknowledging, even if only subconsciously, that the Phil Coke experiment is destined to fail. Sign up for the Gypsy break at cardboard problem already! I took the Braves this one and left the Tigers and I think they are still available. Also, I found some Tigers cards to give you if you are interested. They are giveaway sets from the All-Star Fanfest when game was at Comerica and I have found a ton of them in a box recently. Let me know if you don't have these and are interested and I'll send them over.

  2. I don't know that I can swallow $39 on the Gypsy Queen break right now. I don't really like look of the set and the Tigers "hits" look like real long shots (Kaline, Cabrera). A little rich for my blood, I'm afraid.

    As for the fanfest cards, I'd be VERY interested. I have a couple cards from then, but I don't think that I have any of the giveaways. If you've got some to spare I'd be very appreciative!
