You're not addressing how it concerns the Tigers now are you. Which is what the article I posted was all about. Squirrel!

The information in the article you posted was obvious to those who knew about the changes...which were known in December.

Might as well start this as well. Tigers rebuild is somewhat of a question.
Lets looks at what they will have in 2018, baring any more trades let alone any FA's.
Catcher 7th in average but 10th in runs scored= McCann / Hicks
1st base Cabrera needs to be healthy!
2nd Kinsler free agent walk season. Trade deadline ?
SS Iglesias
So far same old same old
3rd Candelario new kid on the diamond
RF Castellanos another 100 + rbi season would be nice
CF Mahtook
LF Opening
Last position open

Starters
Fulmer, Boyd, Norris, Zimmerman, 5th any body guess.

Relief
A Wilson, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?

Closer
Green

In truth Team is set except for the 5th starter, Fail PEN and left field. And there be more left overs from 2017!

I wouldn't be surprised if Kinsler or Iggy are gone before the start of the season and replaced with Machado.

I'd like to see them bargain hunting towards the end of free agency. Sign some players to 1 year contracts, fill out the roster and see if they can get lucky. If they play well they have trade chips to help re-stock the minor league system.

I think the best option would be to replace Kinsler with Machado. I also don't mind longer deals, just good ones. Mid-type players that can be a little productive. Not too expensive.

I don't think either are in the plans for 2019...so, if a team came with an offer for either, the Tigers would likely listen and just replace that player with Machado.

It would be stupid to pick up Kinsler's option and then not trade him before the season or at a minimum before the break.

Iglesias will be too costly for this team by 2019. So this year would be it.

Not sure if he is ready but is there any chance Christin Stewart ends up being our LF option? I thought he was putting up good numbers in the minors but I know he is a butcher in the field.

I've been wondering this too. I mean, could he be any worse than Delmon Young? He started in LF for us...including the playoffs. In his defense, dude was mashing at the plate from what I remember.
