Default Anyone worried about Maggs on the Tigers?

http://chicagosports.chicagotribune....esox-headlines

Flush with giddiness over finally having a club with no holes (or should I say yawning chasms? I'm thinking of catcher, 2B, RF, 5th starter and leadoff last year...), the thought of facing Maggs 19 games a year on a team which gave us fits anyway was a nice cold shower.

The quotes in the linked story talk about it as though it was an impending deal. Note Boras' lack of traditional doublespeak and "wait and see" BS.

Grrr.

Thoughts?

No I'm not worried. Maggs can sit on whatever bench Boras tells him to.

Corollary question: which is better... Maggs on the Cubs, or Maggs on the Tigers?

He's just another sell out baseball player to me now. I could care less if he went to the Tigers, more chances for me too boo him. I don't care where he goes, just as long as he doesn't go to the sCrUBs.

Maggs anywhere but the Cubs. That way we don't have to see a "Maggs Watch" in the Tribune everyday

Paraphrasing (and taking liberties with) what Sensei Kreese said to Bobby in Karate Kid

If he can't run - he can't play

Magglio has yet to work out - not had a single workout with a single team. Right now - if you told me I had to choose between Magglio or Bobby Higginson, I might choose Higginson. Dmitri Young...I'd take him over Magglio also. Rondell White...him too. Craig Monroe? Ok - now I gotta think about it. Magglio doesn't scare me ONE BIT - until he proves he is marginally close to stepping into a batters box. If Boras can con the Tigers into spending big bucks on a guy who has yet to get health - I'm all for it.

Well if anyone hits one down the first base line at Comerica, it's going to go for a triple or an inside the park homer.

Magglio was never going to re-sign with the Sox and that was before his injury. So, I always thought he would end up on the Mets, now I think he might sit out MLB this year and play in a foreign league. If the Tigers are dumb enough to sign him, then go ahead. The Cubune loves to point out that the Tigers signed Ivan and he had a history of injurys, but he was coming off an amazing playoff run and his injurys were known. The only contract I would offer Maggs is $1 mill this year and a $6 mill option next year.

I hope Maggs signs with the Tigers and plays RF. Maybe this way Higginson won't hit 5 of his 9 homers against the White Sox. I guess he can always DH though, damn.

man I'd have to hear it from all the Tiger people over by here...

on a side note-
I wonder how many sticks of gum Higginson packs into that craw of his?

If the Tigers sign Ordonez (he's no longer Maggs to me), Higginson is gone.
