Let the Fun Begin


Bill Ferris is all over the winter meetings this week so be sure to head over to the Detroit Tigers Weblog to stay updated.  I will do my best to keep up and offer my thoughts on any moves the Tigers make during the next few days.

To get the party started, the Tigers announced today (via twitter) the signing of lefty reliever Brad Thomas, who Dave Dombrowski is viewing as a major league option out of the bullpen.  Thomas pitched the past two seasons in Korea.  To make room for Thomas, the Tigers traded LHP Clay Rapada to the Texas Rangers for a player to be named later or cash.  Detroit also announced that RHP Zach Simons was outrighted off of the 40 man roster.

So the Tigers actually freed up a roster spot with these moves.  Thomas will occupy one of the two vacancies, but the other is of yet available.  Could it be another deal is in the works?  MLBTR is the place to be for all the week’s goings on and they have word that an Edwin Jackson trade could be going down by day’s end.  Stay tuned…
