Tigers Trade Justin Verlander To The Astros. Detroit We Have A Problem

Stink, stank, stunk! 

A root canal with unsterile tools covered in toxic waste and no anesthesia would be much less painful than the recent Tigers trade.

Late Thursday night the Tigers traded Justin Verlander and Justin Upton to the Houston Astros for 2 prospects.

How could you trade solid players and fan favorites for players who could be a bust. It's  like shooting yourself in the foot to spite your leg.

 I know that we needed to do something, but not now. If you really wanted to rebuild a team, it should be done during the off season, not while it's still going on. Verlander is older, but he still has a lot of pitching years left.

Don't give me the excuse that the Tigers needed this. Yes, the Tigers are older, but when you keep trading great players what do you get, a team that stinks. The Tigers were built to win and we can't do that with trades like these. 

Also what does that do to the morale of the team and fans. Fans watch, attend games. We buy team gear and show our team pride. Fans are fickle. Disappoint them once and good luck ever getting the fan base to return. 

And what about the other misfire trades that were done. Yes, the Tigers were screwed over when the former team President Dave Drombrowski traded pitcher David Price to Toronto and Yonies Cepedes to the Mets. Avila had 2 years to turn the team around. So far he's been terrible at it.

With decisions like these no wonder the Tigers out of playoff contention  What's next Al, cut Miggy, V Mart, Paws and the rest of our team too?

Maybe I'm wrong and maybe the Tigers will come out alright. After all we still got Miggy, V Mart, and Kinsler. I hope that this trade works out or the Tigers are going to lose fans including this one.

No excuses. Do whatever it takes to get Verlander and Upton back.
