IDK the tigers had success with that pitching staff the hitting went cold in the playoffs and the WS. Back in those days I felt Cabrera and Victor Martinez should have been traded. But the team gutted the pitching staff and they have been a basement dwellers since.Good. For Stafford. I didn't want to see Scherzer or Verlander go from the Tigers but they were better off for their own success.
I'm glad for Stafford I hope he lands on a good team, the lions are just to far away with or without Stafford, If he does land on a good team I just hope if they receive draft picks that they get them a few years out without any clauses.
