5 relief pitchers the Tigers should try to sign in 2018.
Trading relievers for prospects at the deadline should be the Tigers’ top priority next season.

Tigers SRD Podcast: Oh,My! 60 minutes.

The guys welcome in Nathan Bierma from Tigers History as they list the best 3 teams that did not make the post-season or did not make the World Series.
The opener of the podcast starts with a tribute to Dick Enberg and the rejected trade offer for Michael Fulmer.

December 30 in Tigers and mlb history:

1907: The Mills Commission on the origins of baseball reports that the game was invented by Abner Doubleday in Cooperstown, New York, in 1839. The Commission is convinced by the testimony of Abner Graves, who claimed to be a childhood companion of Doubleday's. Grave's story is later "verified" when an old, rotting ball is found among his personal effects; the ball is now in the Hall of Fame. The Commission ignores the fact that Doubleday did not graduate from West Point until 1842.

1926: The Chicago Tribune breaks a story that the Detroit Tigers have thrown a four-game series to the Chicago White Sox in 1917 to help Chicago win the pennant. Responding to the publicity, Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis convenes a hearing on the matter, but dismisses all charges. Landis can find no witnesses to confirm any part of Swede Risberg's claim.

1935: Sandy Koufax, one of the most dominant pitchers in history, is born in Brooklyn, NY. He will go on to pitch for the hometown Dodgers, but his career really takes off when the team moves to Los Angeles. Koufax will post a 129-47 record and capture three Cy Young Awards. He will win all three when only one award is given annually for the two leagues.

1955: The Detroit Tigers traded Leo Cristante and cash to the Brooklyn Dodgers for Pete Wojey.

1987: The Detroit Tigers signed Mike Brown as a free agent.

2003: The Detroit Tigers signed Jason Johnson as a free agent.

2005: The Detroit Tigers signed Mike Bynum as a free agent.

2015: The Detroit Tigers signed Michael Crotta as a free agent.
2015: The Detroit Tigers signed Chad Huffman as a free agent.
