Here at The Corner, we round up Detroit Tigers news and rumors around the Tigers blogosphere so that you don’t spend hours surfing the web searching.

The Detroit Tigers aren’t going to be a very intriguing team at the trade deadline. That’s according to a report from the Detroit News. CBS Sports reportedly ranked all the teams and they listed the Tigers as only the 20th most intriguing team. Which really, makes sense in a way. The Tigers don’t have a “huge’ name to trade away.

Michael Fulmer is arguably the biggest name to trade away on the team. But a trade of Fulmer won’t nationally draw the fanfare that the Justin Verlander trade did last season. Another potential trade asset is Shane Greene. Andy Patton explores possible trade scenarios for Greene.

The Tigers could also add another pitcher, with the state of the bullpen it might help. Andy Patton also looks into whether the team should pick up Randall Delgado. The Detroit Tigers Double-A Affiliate Erie SeaWolves are having a Christmas in July promotional night. The promotional night features another cotton candy hotdog. This time, it has green cotton candy for the bun.

On Sunday, Tigers legends Alan  Trammell and Jack Morris will be inducted into the baseball hall of fame. On Sunday the Detroit Free Press will have a commemorative section to celebrate the induction of both players.  Also at the Free Press, Jack Morris just wants to be loved. He’s generally loved by the Tigers fan base.
