For all those little moves our division rivals make that don't necessarily warrant their own thread, but may be of interest 'round these parts.

Victor Martinez won't be injured.

True, but he is another year older and missed all of 2012. I don't know that he will come back as the 2011 Victor Martinez. Unless the Tigers are looking to make Martinez their everyday catcher, which doesn't seem likely, I don't see them re-signing Young. In 2012, I don't think the Tigers would have won the division without Young, not necessarily because of his numbers, but because of some very timely hitting.

Not that I believe Young is an MVP candidate. I don't think the Tigers would have won the division is Cabrera or Fielder had down years.
