From mlb's main page: "A dog-eared rumor was revived by the Boston Globe, which reported the Tigers and Red Sox are still considering a trade of a Detroit left-hander -- either Nate Robertson or Dontrelle Willis -- for shortstop Julio Lugo."
Anyone up for trading Aybar straight up for either of those guys? If trading for Peavey is too costly? Or would it be better to just bring up a rookie? I know they both have had questionable performances recently, but we wouldn't have to give up the farm, we could keep our money for signing Tex, and just pray whichever guy we take turns it around next year. Either guy would most likely at least pitch as well as Garland did last year.
Besides, I've always liked both of their styles. Robertson is frickin Rick Vaughn, and Willis might beat Vlad in a smiling contest.
OK, go ahead and blast me.
