WTF ARE WE DOING? We now have given away 4 Cy Young winners in the last few years. We trade away our best assets ( J.D./ UPTON/ WILSON/ VERLANDER). All that's left is a washed up Martinez an aging Kinsler and Miggy. WE'RE GOING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION.

Whether or not anyone is for the fire-sale is irrelevant b/c we had no say in it anyway. The franchise was losing money every year, and once the patriarch passed, then it was only a matter of how and when the Ilitch clan was gonna cut their losses. Obviously given the payrolls of the indians and royals recent success, spending boatloads of $$$ isn't always necessary, and doesn't assure building a championship-worthy team.
