Hotstove Notes

The Detroit Tigers announced that they have resigned Brandon Inge and Alex Sanchez to one year deals but they did not offer Eric Munson a contract making him a free agent. Brandon Inge, who was supposed to be traded after the Tigers signed Pudge last offseason, had a very good year hitting .287, with 13 homers and 64 RBIs in the 131 games that he played in. Alex Sanchez will have to prove himself this season now that the Tigers have signed him. He hit .322 last season but he drew only 7 walks while being the Tigers leadoff batter. He has his chance now to redeem himself and he can not let it slip.

It appears as if the Tigers are still trying to decide if they should strongly pursue Derek Lowe. Lowe is coming off a down year. He went 14-12 with a 5.42 ERA. He is 31 years old. I think the Tigers should go after him because he is one of the best free agent pitchers that is still on the market. The Tigers need to stop hesitating and go after this guy. He is a big name player and that is something that the Tigers need.
