    Houston is looking to add some power bats and make a big impact this coming up season. Tigers are wanting to get a bit younger and clear up alot of Cap space.
    Houston Gives:
    Prince Fielder 3.5*
    Julio Lugo 2.5*
    Duncan 1*

    Detroit gives:
    Aramis Ramirez 3.5*
    David Ortiz 3.5*

    Should click to expand. The screenshots are from an UW monitor lol. I can post them if it's still not showing correctly.

    I'm agreeing to this trade. I'm trying to call up JJ Hardy and this would give me an IF that is all under 22 and changes my window as we were a .550 team last season. Plus I need money to pay Roy soon

    I’d like to see Houston giving up a little bit more in terms of talent to approve this

    hmm. This one is a tough one for me. I get what Detroit and Houston are trying to do. I can see Houston giving up another prospect as well but they are also taking on a ton of salary cap. I approve, but slightly.

    I'm not sure why we are asking to add another prospect. Houston is taking on $28M in salary of what we can see and they need $3M in cash to make it work. We cannot see the additional years of those contracts so have no idea how bad this could be for Houston in the future. While Ortiz and Ramirez are both All-Star caliber, Detroit is only getting rid of them because of their giant contracts. I'm just not sure we're not trading one financial issue for another. I need to see more of the financials of the Tigers players and what Houston looks like for salary space in the future. For now I vote no

    Salary cuts in half every season for both. The contracts were made pre-extension rules, so they become value next season.

    Aramis: 13, 6.5, 3.3
    David: 15, 9.9, 5

    Personally I'm trying to get younger because my core is younger and we were lucky to make the run we did last season.
