Tigers Close To Signing Octavio Dotel

10:31pm: All that's left for Dotel and the Tigers to work out is the length of the contract, tweets Rosenthal. A one-year deal with a vesting option seems like the most likely outcome, Rosenthal adds.

5:35pm: The Tigers have made an "aggressive" offer for Dotel, tweets Morosi.

4:44pm: The Tigers are considered the favorite for Dotel, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, adding that the other finalist is a National League team.

Angels.

Earlier rumor of the Angels acquiring relief help and this makes me hopeful. I’d love Dotel in the Angels pen on a cheap contract.

Better be for under $2mil if they’re going to pass up the free draft pick.

You also can’t have too many losses, that seems to be our case for the next few seasons :(

This one may be the Rangers as supposedly they really like Dotel.

Dodgers! 3 years 15 million! 1 milion in 2012, 7 million for 2013 and 2014.  Or I may just be a little bit bitter right now.

Rightfully bitter…I feel your pain.

Reds?

Tigers or Dodgers…..heard it hear folks.  Would love to see him in Detroit, but with the news that the Dodgers were close to adding BP help, have to believe it was them….

3 years 8 months ago

I realize BP normally stands for batting practice… if they want BP help the Dodgers can sign Brad Penny, if they want bullpen help, they can sign Dotel…

I find it hard to believe you’re right when you can’t spell “here” correctly.

3 years 8 months ago

Oh, I spelled “hear” correctly, I just spelled the “that’s what I” preceeding it incorrectly…

Zing!
