Fans who have been following the Detroit Tigers have seen several trades, contract extensions, draft picks, and free agent signings. Eyebrows have raised in happiness, scowled in disgust, and lifted in shock. In some cases, the trades, draft picks, and signings have turned into wins for the team, but there have also been some serious duds.
When evaluating whether a transaction has been beneficial for the team, there are several factors to consider. Of course, the dollar amount of the trade is important to consider. Then, the other considerations involve the wins and losses the trade affected. In some cases, transactions can be evaluated on the intangibles like the attitudes of the players while they are members of the team.
