Twitter Talk: On Doug Fister, bullpen moves, former Detroit Tigers and Little Hurricane

Tigers fans rue the day that Dave Dombrowksi traded Fister for Robbie Ray, Ian Krol and Steve Lombardozzi. They should. It was a bad trade. Major League is still a great movie. Remember the one scene when the players are arriving at spring training and the manager and coaches, inexplicably, are watching them pull up in their cars? Jake Taylor arrives. This exchange follows: "Wish we had him two years ago." "We did." "Four years ago then." Which brings us to Doug Fister.

Tigers interested in reunion with RHP Doug Fister, per reports

The former Tigers pitcher struggled with injuries in 2015, but would come at a bargain price tag.

Tigers interested in free agent starter Hisashi Iwakuma

Due to concerns about his higher age, Iwakuma is likely to take a shorter contract, which may benefit the Tigers if they chose to sign the steady right-hander.

While he had a solid ERA in the mid-3s, the pitcher had not attained national recognition. Of course, Doug Fister went on to make a name for himself with the Tigers, using that vaunted command to help lead the Tigers into three consecutive postseasons.

Nats Journal: Nationals extend qualifying offers to Ian Desmond, Jordan Zimmermann

The Nationals extended qualifying offers to shortstop Ian Desmond and starter Jordan Zimmermann before Friday’s 5 p.m. deadline. All free agents are eligible for qualifying offers, but center fielder Denard Span and starter Doug Fister, who led the team in ERA in 2014 before a disappointing 2015 season, were the only other Nationals whose salaries and track records suggested they might receive them.Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Which Nationals should get qualifying offers?

Free agency officially begins at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, after a five-day window in which teams can negotiate exclusively with their own free agent players. Six Nationals, for now, fall under that category: Ian Desmond, Jordan Zimmermann, Doug Fister, Denard Span, Matt Thornton and Dan Uggla. Casey Janssen and Nate McLouth likely will join them when their options are bought out.Read full article >>
