Tigers trade Verlander, Upton as rebuilding process begins

Tigers trade Verlander, Upton as rebuilding process begins

Now, the Tigers have unloaded Justin Verlander and Justin Upton. There's just one thing that's missing from his resume. They can't fully trust Brian Hoyer, they don't know what to make of a draft class people like only on conjecture, and 2-14 is a deep ditch from which to climb.

Some of Cameron's prospect luster wore off last season when he struggled to perform in the Midwest League in his age 19 season.

That said, how much does Verlander help their rotation in a playoff series? Through 63 home games this season, the Tigers have averaged 29,622 fans per games. Getting Verlander is a huge shot in the arm. That's when he looked the most unsafe. Verlander helped make the Tigers relevant again and showed he was what the city needed. Pablo Sandoval and the San Francisco Giants had other plans.

Yet the others lived a pitcher's dream: a complete-game victory in Game 7 of the World Series, Newhouser doing so in 1945 and Lolich in 1968.

According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, the deal wasn't easy, but both clubs were able to get it done. The long-gone Hamilton's five-year, $125 million contract finally comes off the Angels' books this winter, freeing their payroll to absorb the rest of Upton's contract if he doesn't opt out of the final four seasons of his six-year, $132.75 million deal. Will Harris recently rejoined the bullpen, Michael Feliz might be back soon, and the addition of Verlander will enable the Astros to also use righty Brad Peacock in relief.

Russian Federation has drafted formal 'note of protest' to US
The Kremlin has said the moves to close the Russian facilities pushed bilateral ties further into a dead end. The letter of protest was handed to US Embassy in Moscow Deputy Chief of Mission Anthony F.

In return, Astros General Manager Jeff Lunhow agreed to part ways with three prospects: outfielder Daz Cameron, pitcher Franklin Perez and catcher Jake Rogers.

Astros owner Jim Crane, speaking to reporters, said of Verlander, "He was a little reluctant and eventually made the right decision". Instead, he complimented the Astros' "aggressiveness" from the start.

Phillips only carries a 1.1 WAR with him to the City of Angels, but keep in mind that the combined WAR of every man who has played second base for Los Angeles this season is an atrocious -1.4. Houston has lost 20 of their last 31 games, and is looking for some momentum. Verlander will continue to front this rotation as the Astros are in the midst of their championship window. He had this to say of his team's acquisition. Obviously, the three games in Oakland I felt like we should have played better.

Still, Hamels has pitched well against the Angels, going 4-1 with a 2.47 ERA for his career.

Those two teams added a Cy Young pitcher and an All-Star outfielder to improve their chances of making the playoffs. Verlander was due $28 million a year until 2020, where he would face a $22 million vesting option (and would be 36 years old). Derek Carr is playing just the way you would expect the second highest-paid quarterback in the National Football League would, and the offense is tasked with averaging 34 points a game just to stay ahead of its still too-generous defense, thus reaching the old AFL nostalgia freaks who are entering their dotage.
