- Morosi reasons that the Tigers' 2009 closer will come from outside of the organization, probably via trade. His top three candidates: Kevin Gregg, Huston Street, and J.J. Putz. As a free agent after '09, Gregg would fit nicely with the Tigers' long-term plans. The Tigers and Marlins have matched up often on trades. However, Morosi notes that Gregg had critical words for Dontrelle Willis and Miguel Cabrera, who would become his teammates again.
- Putz would make for a great story, as he grew up in Michigan.
- As you know, Scott Boras doesn't see a Magglio Ordonez trade as likely. Still, Morosi notes that the Angels would be a fine fit if Mark Teixeira leaves - they could fill all of the Tigers' needs. Surely Boras would ask for concessions to waive Ordonez's no-trade clause.
