He traded a generational talent in Justin Verlander for, Franklin Perez who can't get out of Florida with a 9+ERA and a 1.9 WHIP, Daz Cameron who in 3 years has played 73 games for the Tigers and has a .201 batting average and Jake Rogers who in two years has also played 73 games, isn't playing in 2022 and has a .182 batting average.

Tigers got nothing for Scherzer.  They got Matt Boyd and two people I've never heard of for Price.

2014 Tigers Rotation was Verlander, Scherzer, Price, Rick Porcello and Anibal Sanchez.  All of whom went on to win the World Series FOR OTHER TEAMS!!!

Had they kept the rotation they would have been a dynasty only starting the rebuild at last year's trade deadline.
