Details On Tigers' Failed Putz Bid

Jon Paul Morosi of the Detroit Free Press has the details on the Tigers' failed bid for J.J. Putz:

One proposal involved the Tigers sending Matt Joyce to Tampa Bay and outfielders Wilkin Ramirez and Casper Wells to Seattle. Putz was the only player the Tigers would have received.

According to Joe Strauss, the Cardinals also pursued Putz (as well as Aaron Heilman).

After the proposal failed, the Tigers shipped Joyce to Tampa Bay for Edwin Jackson. Brian Fuentes may be the Tigers' best remaining option from a baseball standpoint, but Morosi believes they'd have to move other contracts off the books to afford him.  I'm surprised - they'll spend less than $10MM in '09 on their new catcher, shortstop, and starter.
