Pudge Follow-up

Watching ESPN’s report about the Pudge trade to the Yankees. Peter Gammons says:

  • The Tigers-Pudge relationship “had run its course.”
  • Jim Leyland told him that the Tigers can’t run Zumaya and Rodney out there every night and the team needed bullpen depth.
  • The Tigers believe Brandon Inge is ready to take over behind the plate.
  • “On that stage in New York” Pudge will be inspired to play great.

When you think about it, the fact that Pudge has remained in Detroit this long is astounding. So unhappy was he during the Alan Trammell Era (especially 2005), most wouldn’t have been shocked at a trade back then.
