Tigers To Trade Ordonez?

Tuesday, June 10, 2008

With the Tigers ten games out of first, GM Dave Dombrowski might be forced to trade one of his top players to open up some of the payroll. Magglio Ordonez's name has come up as of late because of his big contract and fast start. It wouldn't make sense for the Tigers to keep him on their payroll after opening up the bank on pitchers Jeremy Bonderman, Nate Robertson, Dontrelle Willis, and hitters Miguel Cabrera and Carlos Guillen. With the Tigers ten games out of first, they could trade Ordonez for prospects and start rebuilding their minor league system. If the Blue Jays hang in the race for the playoffs, they could potentially be a good fit for him.

There is no way they trade Maggs! Pudge, Rogers, T. Jones, Nate Robertson, and Inge might be on the trade block but Maggs isn't. Some reporter that thinks he knows baseball in Detroit wrote a story about how trading Maggs is good for the team but explain to me how trading away a career .310 hitter away is good? They still want to compete next year.
