This morning I read the news that the Detroit Tigers had traded Ivan Rodriguez to the New York Yankees. They traded him for a relief pitcher, who, if past performance in trades with the Yankees organization holds true, will not be with the club next year and will turn out to be a bad burn out in the remainder of this year.
During the 90’s the Tigers made lots of trades with the Yankees, always supplying them with the right talent to win the World Series. It’s too bad they didn’t leave that era alone. The Yankees gain a proven and great talent – a big win. The Tigers’ – lost a great catcher and team personality. Tiger fans – are you ready for some football?
