The #Tigers have acquired INF's Dawel Lugo, Sergio Alcantara & Jose King from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for OF J.D. Martinez.

Al Avila IS AN INCOMPETENT FUCKHEAD

The # 4 and # 15 prospects from a terrible Minor League System.

Lugo is ranked the No. 4 prospect in the D-backs system; Alcantara is ranked No. 15, according to MLB Pipeline.

Seems like a light haul for JD....Lugo and Alcantara both 5 year minor leaguers with no major league experience.

This is the type of return I would expect for Kinsler or Avila, not JD.

Arizona must be having a good laugh about this. I wonder if Avila leaves the front door of his home unlocked and invites people in to rob him.

Diamondbacks trade 3 min or league shithooks and Acquire J.D. Martinez.
Al Avila says it's a great deal for the Tigers.
MLBTradeRumors

Does anyone need any more explanation why Al Avila is an incompetent GM.
What a goofy dumb f'k of a baseball mind, trading a power hitting outfielder for 3 scrub minor leaguers from one of the worst minor league systems in baseball. this kid Lugo can't buy a walk, look at the yearly obp's.
The Tigers front office is run by baseball minds from an era of yesterday.
So much for the analytical team called Caesar.
Remember this deal, and expect the worst from bird brain Al Avila, and asst GM Bowel Brains David Chadd.
Wish Mr Ilitch canned Avila and kept Dombrowski.

I swear no matter what we do , its all negative nancy's ...so tired of it . We get the 4th best rated prospect in MLB , yet people still bitch lol

Lugo, 22, is batting .282 with 21 doubles, four triples, seven home runs, 43 RBI, 40 runs and 21 walks in 88 games for double-A Jacksonville this season. He is currently ranked as the Diamondbacks No. 2 overall prospect by Baseball America and fourth overall by MLB.com. Lugo was also tabbed as the best hitter for average in Arizona’s system by Baseball America entering the 2017 season. Last year, he was selected as a California League midseason All-Star and played for Salt River in the Arizona Fall League, where he was named to the Rising Stars team
