Always A Tiger, Trade Deadline Edition

We had better make some sort of move before I kill someone.

I'm hitting this a couple days early since I'll be traveling to Cleveland for Saturday's game, as well as catching Tuesday night's game at the CoPa against Baltimore. It would be nice to see Adam Dunn in the outfield instead of 'ol Clete, but we'll see.

Stats are through July 29th. New additions to this month's report are Virgil Vasquez, Shane Loux, and "Big Red" Chris Shelton. Also, Juan Rincon caught on with Colorado since last time. Welcome back to the majors, guys. Remember, this is a list of any former Tigers that have played in the big leagues this season...at least the ones that I remember.

SP-Jair Jurrjens, Atl, 9-7, 2.69, 134 IP, 93 K's
SP-Andrew Miller, Fla, 3-5, 4.81, 76.2, 55
SP-Brian Moehler, Hou, 7-6, 5.16, 90.2, 58
SP-Jeff Weaver, LAD, 5-4, 3.83, 54, 40
SP-Shane Loux, LAA, 2-3, 5.40, 45, 15
SP-Virgil Vasquez, Pit, 1-5, 6.21, 29, 19

It's been said a thousand times now...but how cool would it be if Jurrjens was still in our rotation? F'n Renteria...damn you, Double D.

RP-Francisco Cordero, Cin, 2-1, 23 sv, 1.83, 39.1, 32
RP-Jamie Walker, Bal, 0-0, 5.11, 12.1, 9 (released by Bal)
RP-Kyle Farnsworth, KC, 1-4, 4.24, 23.1, 25
RP-Troy Percival, TB, 0-1, 6 sv, 6.35, 11.1, 7 (put on DL on 5/22; expected to retire)
RP-Jason Grilli, Tex, 1-2, 3.84, 35.2, 33 (1.10 ERA in 15 IP since joining Texas, the prick)
RP-Doug Brocail, Hou, 1-0, 6.75, 6.2, 4
RP-Casey Fossum, NYM, 0-0, 2.25, 4, 3, (now in Cubs system)
RP-Chad Durbin, Phi, 1-2, 4.64, 48.2, 47
RP-Trevor Miller, StL, 2-0, 2.03, 26.2, 31
RP-Wil Ledezma, Was, 0-0, 9.53, 5.2, 8 (may have been released 7/4?)
RP-Roman Colon, KC, 1-1, 4.88, 24, 15
RP-Tim Byrdak, Hou, 1-1, 3.48, 33.2, 30
RP-Eulogio De La Cruz, SD, 0-0, 5.40, 3.1, 2 (in minors now)
RP-Juan Rincon, Col, 2-2, 7.30, 12.1, 13

Not much to say here other than I hope Jamie Walker catches on somewhere, and I hope Jason Grilli gets herpes.

C-Ivan Rodriguez, Hou, .251, 8, 33, .282 OBP

Maybe we can put together a trade and get Sheffield. That would rule. Seeya at the ballpark this week, kids.
