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!
