    Yeah, five or six if I remember correctly.

    Also, Griffey Jr. is now a White Sox.

    I've figured it out....

    The Tigers would be a shoe in if only there was a way to trade Chicago and Minnesota to the AL East for Toronto and Baltimore, that would put the Tigers in first.

    Keep hope alive.

    The Nats released Paul Lo Duca and Johnny Estrada today. Should the Tigers sign one of them? Either one would most likely give more production than Sardinha.

    I honestly don't look for a lot of production out of a backup catcher. It's a nice plus if it's there, but I'd rather have a guy who handles the pitching staff well and puts in his homework when it comes to batters.

    It's nice to know that there are options out there though. That is if someone like Florida doesn't sign them.

    If the Tigers wanted to tell me they "aren't giving up this season" they should sign Lo Duca...afterall the biggest drop off from the Pudge trade is back up catcher.

    If not sign Lo Duca, give the back up to Skelton (it might help 3 years from now).

    You have to wonder about what Lo Duca has left. He was connected with the steroids too. Since that news, he has been all downhill.

    Does he have at least Vance Wilson numbers left in him?

    Sardinha is supposed to be a pretty good defensive catcher, and that is all I really look for in the backup role.

    We once were in the East Division, before expansion. Not a bad idea!!!

    It's hard to have a back-up catcher who can't hit at all, though, considering Wilson was the perfect back-up catcher, both defensively and offensively. It really sucks that he hasn't recovered from his surgeries.

    Perhaps we should bring up someone other than Sardinha. When Brandon started playing for the Tigers, he was very young, and people doubted him because of his inexperience and young age. I could see from the get-go that he's a tremendous athlete and that he'd be fine. Perhaps we have another Inge in the minors. I don't follow the minors, so I'm not familiar with who's there.

    I know LoDuca had injured himself somehow and was being used more @ 1B than as a catcher. He's pretty much toast nowadays. Not sure what's wrong with Estrada, but if I had to choose between the two, I'd take Estrada. Although to be honest, I wouldn't want either on the team. Let Sardihna get his rips in at the back-up spot, and let Inge have what he's been wanting all year: nobody looking over his shoulder taking playing time away.
