Big news. Huge news. The most news we have had in ages.
The Tigers have signed Eric Patterson to a minor league contract. Tremble in your cleats, division-mates! THE CENTRAL IS OURS NOW!
Actually, the only real ‘news’ lately is un-news: the fact that Jacob Turner is unlikely to be traded. It sure is starting to feel like the Tigers are hunkering down, ready to take on the baseball world with FredFred (freshly 23 years old! not such a baby anymore!) and Max’s Magical Eyes and a flurry of Fists and of course The Perfection.
This still leaves a fifth slot open for Phil Coke or kitten Turner or someone off the Energy Squad or whatever, but I guess that’s ok. Dave Dombrowski seems ok with it, and presumably he knows more about it than I do.
In any event, I was really just happy I had that shot of Patterson and Miggy already. Never thought I’d have a reason to use that ol’ thing!
