Dombrowski and Tigers fans have the same ultimate goal. They wont reach it unless they win four games against a National League team late in October. DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers have plenty of fans. There is no way all of them will agree with every move general manager Dave Dombrowski makes.

Tigers send Ian Krol down to 'get him back to the pitcher we know he can be'

DETROIT — The afternoon started with rumors that the Detroit Tigers were going to bolster their bullpen with the addition of a left-handed reliever. They eventually did, recalling the injury assignment of Pat McCoy from Triple-A Toledo. Not really what you envisioned? That feeling is probably universal. While the Tigers did not pull of a trade deadline deal to reinforce the bullpen, they did make a minor move in the aftermath of the afternoon’s blockbuster deal, bringing McCoy off the disabled list, and sending fellow lefty Ian Krol to Triple-A Toledo to work on his issues. “We want to...

To compete with A's, Rangers need to do more

The Oakland Athletics made a daring move, one Texas Rangers GM Jon Daniels wished he could have made, but couldn't due to injuries and ineffective play, on Thursday afternoon. In reality, the Rangers own the worst record in baseball, so making a trade to upgrade the current roster is pointless. Needing more pitching for the pennant chase, the Athletics acquired one of the best pitchers in the game in Boston's Jon Lester and gave up a young outfielder in Yoenis Cespedes.

Why the Dodgers stood pat

LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers were, indeed, involved in talks to try to acquire Jon Lester from the Boston Red Sox and David Price from the Tampa Bay Rays, general manager Ned Colletti confirmed after Thursday's deadline passed without the Dodgers making a trade. The Dodgers decided to stand pat and keep their elite prospects. Colletti said it would have taken more than one of the Dodgers' top three prospects -- Joc Pederson, Corey Seager and Julio Urias -- to land either of those two pitchers.

It was a three-team deal between Detroit, Seattle and Tampa Bay. The Tigers got Price, the Mariners got outfielder Austin Jackson and the Rays got pitcher Drew Smyly, second baseman Nick Franklin and Tigers prospect Willy Adames. David Price is a...
