Hernandez very young, too bad he ain't a lefty, but then the Angels might not have parted with him for just Kinsler.

Montgomery purportedly plus defense and speed, one of the best clubs that he could have been traded to, lower bar to possibly getting a cuppa coffee or the whole pot.

The Tigers preferred the package of prospects that the Mets were willing to offer for Ian Kinsler to the package they received from the Angels.
However, Kinsler would only waive his no-trade clause to approve a trade to the Angels, forcing GM Al Avila’s hand. Though Avila could’ve waited, Fenech opines that the GM made the right call to act when there was a trade scenario on the table rather than to wait for something unforeseen to arise.
Meanwhile, Kinsler tells Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register that Justin Upton has been recruiting him since being traded to the Angels in August, and the Halos’ success in the Shohei Ohtani sweepstakes caught his attention as well: “Making moves this winter to push for the next level … That motivates a player like me.”

Tigers’ rush to trade Ian Kinsler left them with meager return
36

This has been a trend under Al Avila’s leadership

I just wish that Mr. Is kids sell this team, and bring someone who'll pay for quality players again.
