  • Another free agent stinker is finished

    Looks like Todd Percival is finished.
    Too bad, because he had heart and wanted to pitch.
    Unfortunately, he's joining a long line of free agent stickers the Tigers have signed over the past few year.
    Who is your favorite Tiger bum free agent signing?

    My first thought was Chris Brown, but he was acquired in a trade. The Tigers were going for players like Rob Deer and Pete Incaviglia around then, or not long after.
    Tim Belcher didn't make such a nice impression in his short stay at the Corner.

        How about Nate (the bait) Colbert?
        After opening day, he was a bust.

          I have to mention Dean Palmer, even though he gave us at least one good year. Too bad he had a five-year deal.

            Low Percentage

            Other than Darrell Evens, Bill Gullickson, Cecil Fielder, and Pudge, has there been a good free agent signing?
            In the 1920's, Harry Heilmann led the AL with a .364 average. In addition, he averaged 220 hits, 45 doubles, 12 triples, 16 homers, 110 runs, and 130 RBI.

              You forgot Tony Phillips, one of the most versatile players during the Sparky era and a fine lead-off hitter. If anyone was worth his salt it was he.

              Dean Palmer had back-to-back 100 RBI seasons before injuries took their toll. I can't deem his 5-year signing to be a bust, but I still can't understand why we let Travis Fryman go.

                Lloyd Moseby was a decent acquisition.
