The Day the 2015 Season Died

I was stung by three hornets today, sat through the entire MLB trade deadline with little to no fanfare...and saw the 2015 Tigers go....

Goodbye Yoenis, Price and Soria

All short time acquisitions built for a great 2015.

This is not a post of mourning!

Let's take a look at what the Tigers have lost and now gained for a brighter 2016

Traded Price to Toronto for three pitchers --- Norris ( I live in a van down by the Wal -Mart!), Matt Boyd, and Jairo Labourt (the the t is silent)....all Lefties!

For Soria we got JaCoby Jones

We traded Porcello to Boston for Cespedes AND Alex Wilson (who has been the most reliable relief pitcher in 2015, which says a ton) in addition,  from the Mets we got --- Michael Fullmer and Luis Cessa

Addition by subtraction?  Tigers won Thursday, and lead the Orioles 6-5 as I write!

Of Course, Topps! Of Course!

I was reminded by Sportscards from the Dollar Store's lastest post that I had a "pending" redemption with Topps for a 2013 Topps Heritage Minor League card, this one sans auto.

Wait, I moved!  Topps needs me to update my info! I have only been waiting over a year and a half, surely they haven't.....they did, they shipped it.  To be delivered to my old home.

Of course now, I will have to decide whether or not to go back to the old house, talk to the new owners about wrestling this little gem away from them.  

Timing is everything I suppose.

Of Course.

Hot Corner, Pat.
