So I was reading about the Tiger's needs here and my thoughts turned to Doumit and Andy. Doumit would give them some production behind the plate, in addtion to having the option of them DH'ing him, especially if they brought in a better defensive option down the road.
Andy would certainly have the glove to fill in for Inge and an average bat. He would fill the super utitlity role for them, especially if they have him start taking grounders as an emergency shortstop. I know Neal will always have a soft spot for him, but clearly Pedro and NW are the 3b and 2B of the future in Pittsburgh. Seemed like a nice oppotunity to move them both. Just a thought, I'm not suggesting that we would get anything incredible. His value will only drop as he plays less.
Does anyone know about the Tigers system or who they might be willing to move? I know their bullpen is depleted since losing Zumaya again so even a Doumit - Andy - Carrasco/ dotel package crossed my mind as our best chance to get something of value if we could fill all of a teams needs in one trade. Neal is done trading guys valuable to us for the sake of building the minor league system and is relauctant to trade anything he sees as part of the future. None of these guys fit that mold or is bringing in a real haul alone, but possibly as a package a la the Nady-Marte Deal?
