It's always a smart move to send your second best prospect to a probable playoff opponent and three other players for an oft-injured 32 year old with a 4.28 ERA.

Red Sox trade a guy who was basically going to be blocked: Bogaerts/Middlebrooks to the Tigers who trade a guy who was basically going to be blocked for another year or two: Castellanos/Hunter/Jackson (Hunter being the next spot to open) to the White Sox who trade a guy who is injury prone, 4+ ERA and nothing like the pitcher he used to be to the Red Sox.

And the Tigers actually would PREFER to meet Peavy in the playoffs vs the Red Sox since they've seen him a ton and blasted him to the tune of a 4.83 career ERA vs the Tigers. Peralta most likely to be suspended and Iglesias is a negative when compared to his bat, but a ++ in the field and we now have a young SS who will probably be a .260-.280 table setter at the bottom of the lineup. To the people who say Iglesias has no power, the Tigers don't need more guys with power, they need good defenders with a bit of speed who can get on base. Iglesias isn't perfect, but he's a solid 7-8 hitter for many many years to come for the D.

Tigers: B+ Red Sox: C White Sox: B+

From Boston's position, though, Foo Monkey's analysis is right on -- they really seem to be helping out Detroit WAY more than what they're getting back.  Jose Iglesias is going to be starting for the Tigers at SS by the end of the week, once they cut ties with Jhonny Peralta after he gets suspended for the rest of the season.  Losing Peralta without a viable backup would have been devastating to the Tigers.

Honestly, the Red Sox look to be the serious losers here.  The White Sox got the best prospect (plus a handful of others), the Tigers got a desperately needed player at a critical position, and the Red Sox got what, a broken-down starter and a crappy reliever?

Defense is over-rated in baseball but Iglesias appears to be as good of a pickup as the Tigers could possibly get to replace Jhonny.

I hate this trade for the Sox. We spend years developing this guy, finally he starts hitting and has a breakout season... and now the cheap player we control until 2018 for like 500k/year is gone and we have a guy whose career is winding down on the mound come in? Seriously, wtf. I know we have another great prospect coming up for ss, but that doesn't mean you trade iglesias for *this guy*.

Seriously, now we have John Lackey mk II on staff, who can be happy about that?

/wanted Brian Wilson, obviously.

Iglesias was awesome to watch.  They expected him to be in Pawtucket this year and couldn't send him down.  He flirted with a .400 batting average for awhile, legged out infield hits, and now has something like a .380 average when he puts the ball in play.  But thankfully we have... Steven Drew and apparent headcase Will Middlebrooks to fill the void for a team whose lineup can't quite meet the challenge when they face a tough pitcher.

Villarreal has some upside-- he's hurt this year but he throws gas. Last year he did pretty well with 66 Ks over 54 innings with a good ERA. Some control issues. But as a throw-in, I'll take it.

Iglesias wasn't hitting in the minors which delayed his progress and made everyone wonder if he was going to turn out to be the SS of the future here. Sure, he went on a tear early this year but that's the exception. He's in a 5-for-40 slump in the last couple weeks. With Xander Bogaerts on the way up, the Red Sox were able to sell high on Iglesias. I'm not sure he will be a full time player for the bulk of his career. But time will tell.

The Sox needed pitching, and they got it. Completely average pitching, sure, but it allows them to move Workman to the pen and have more options for starting pitching.

So while I'm not thinking this is a "win" for the Sox, I don't think it is as bad as you think it is. If Peavy gets reinvigorated with the change of scenery, and Iglesias continues to slump, the Sox come out winners in this deal. But it certainly could go either way.

The sox needed back-of-bullpen pitching as much or more than they needed starters, we're actually talking about picking up papelbon's contract again for chrissakes, that's how desperate we are for late-relief/closer.

Iglesias will be a full-time player on most any team that needs ss covered, even if he regresses to .240, he's fast, has an amazing glove and, most importantly, he's young and cheap.

Question for any knowledgeable White Sox fans:

To me, this seems like a Kenny Williams deal, not a Rick Hahn deal. Does anyone know if KW is trying to take his job back?

thecpt: SlothB77: Little Miggy Garcia is gonna be a stud.

Yeah, and nothing little about that guy. I think it's weird he was traded considering how much the tigers loved him.


Where's he going to play? There were only a few scenarios where he gets serious playing time:

2015 - VMart is not resigned, Prince is DH, Miggy back to 1st, Castellanos moves to 3rd which removes him from the OF picture, Hunter is not resigned and retires, leaving the Tigers with an OF spot open.

In the end, I still saw Garcia as a jack of all trades and king of none. He has all 5 tools and I think he'll find a spot in most OF's in the league. He'll probably be a .275/15hr/60rbi/10sb guy playing FT that'll play solid D, but as a Tiger fan, thinking about an up-the-middle duo of H. Perez and Iglesias for the next 10 years and having them bat 7-8 or 8-9 is actually awesome.

Nail on the head there. Tigers have to back the money truck up to Cabrera for sure shortly and POSSIBLY Scherzer too. This saves ~5 mil/year over Peralta who's contract is up at the end of this year.

You're paying Scherzer 8.75mil this year, Cabby 21 this year (22 for 2014/15) and he'll get extended before 2015 guaranteed, but you're looking at Scherzer for about a 7yr 130mil and Cabby for about a 8yr 230mil. Those two guys alone are going to raise your payroll about 17mil a year. If you can shave off 5 mil a year going from Peralta -> Iglesias and 6 mil going from Infante -> Perez, coupled with dumping VMart's 12mil in favor of someone like Tuisasosopo (~7-8mil saved) you're looking at basically a wash, keeping Scherzer/Verlander/Sanchez/Prince/Cabby and still fielding a great looking team. The next problems you have to think about are what do you pay for Jackson, Fister and Benoit shortly.

You're probably right about Iglesias not sustaining his bat, especially now in Comerica.  But in all of the recent talk about system depth, I don't feel quite right about Xander Bogaerts.  They can talk about his .875 - .900 OPS and his ever-improving K:BB ratio, but I can't quite accept his name.  A guy with that name can't be good!  (It's science!)  I have him in my Izzy Alcantra file until he makes a believer out of me.

That's true, though getting Peavy allows Workman to move back to the pen as set-up for Uehara. I know I am going to make some baseball fans scream, but I don't completely buy into the closer idea. Uehara is pitching great. Keep him there.

Iglesias will be a full-time player on most any team that needs ss covered, even if he regresses to .240, he's fast, has an amazing glove and, most importantly, he's young and cheap.

You're probably right. It's still true that while here he was blocking the progress of a potentially better player looking to come up.

Keep Reed, Sale, Phegley, Garcia and build around that. Dump or try to dump Danks, Dunn, Rios, Konerko, Ramirez and open up a ton of salary. Rebuild through FA in 2014/15 and you'll probably have a great shot at the Central from 2017-2020. At least that's what I'd try to do.

Dunn needed to go years ago. Obviously Ozzie wasn't allowed to bench his washed up ass either. Konerko has a couple of good years left and may bring some good in the form of a trade, Danks and Rios would garner a lot of young talent. I approve this plan.

Konerko is still a great guy and if sentiment ruled he would retire here.

Other than that tear they went on in Summer 2010, this team has been a boring one trick pony since they won the World Series (I guess 2006 was also a fun season but they sure choked that away down the stretch - worse even than last year). I'll be happy to see them switch over to trusting the young talent and hopefully changing their organizational philosophy. The problem is that they absolutely have to start drafting better. Their farm system has been pretty abysmal for years.

Danks and Dunn aren't going anywhere. There's probably no market for Dunn, and Danks coming off an arm injury with a lot of years left on a sizeable contract isn't movable either.  They're better off keeping Danks anyway, the rest of the rotation is dirt cheap now.

Konerko's contract expires at the end of the year, and I think if you read the tea leaves, he's planning on retiring.  I think there's a reason that Hahn said the only untouchables were Sale (top 10 starter in baseball locked up on a reasonable long-term deal, you don't trade those guys) and Konerko. I doubt he would have included Konerko if he hadn't already talked to Konerko about whether he'd want to be traded to a contender if someone was interested or whether he prefers to stay (he could block any trade, after all).  I just hope that if that is Paulie's plan, he announces it before the last homestand so we can send him out appropriately, although never being a guy big on attention he might not do that, so we should probably give him those ovations anyway just in case.

The way I see the Tigers' batting order is a bit different than most. Our #7, maybe #8 is most teams #9. We need that solid #9 person to turn the lineup over to get more people on base for Miggy/Fielder. With this, you get Miguel at-bat for sure in the first, then in the other innings, you have what basically should be 3 straight .300 hitters setting tables for him (yeah, Jackson's been on a slide, but he can/should do it). Also I don't trust Iglesias to hit .330 or even .300 w/ what I've seen on his BABIP. He'll be a .240-.250 guy, better than Alex, yes, but as much as I hate Avila, he's still a .260 hitter (.250 in July w/ a .740 OPS). I'll take that as a lefty in the #7 slot.

If Iglesias continue hitting .190 w/ a ~.400 OPS with the Tigers as he did in the month of July, you'll want Avila as #7 as well.
