Forgive me for not immediately ordering a Davis home jersey.
The detnews is reporting, hat tip Nebaraska, that the Tigers have signed, former Athletics and Blue Jays outfielder, Rajai Davis, to a two year contract.
Lake Buena Vista, Fla. — The Tigers have struck — they just haven’t struck gold. (UNDERSTATEMENT)
According to a report from Sportsnet.ca’s Ben-Nicholson Smith, speedy outfielder Rajai Davis and the Tigers have come to an agreement on a two-year contract. The Tigers have yet to confirm the move, but The News learned late Monday night that the Tigers were zeroing in on adding offense, and were likely to strike soon — and perhaps at the winter meetings.
Davis is a right-handed hitter who is in line to be in a left-field platoon with the left-handed-hitting Andy Dirks.

I don’t get it. Another platoon player? Great, he has speed but his on-base percentage is .312. It is still impossible to steal first base, isn’t it?
This makes the Fister trade look even worse. What are the Tigers going to do with Lombardozzi? A three way platoon with nobody that can hit.
All this wheeling and dealing and the Tigers still don’t have anybody to play left field.
And, they’re down a pitcher.
I feel another Dirksburger episode flaring up.
Should this be posted under WTF? It seems that category is getting flooded this off season.
