Charlie Rood: Happy Trails on the Rail Trail

 

The world’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge opened in Switzerland on Sunday.   It’s long, it’s high, and it’s narrow.   Click to see pictures along with story.

 

(Charlie Rood)  Just a brief word on the Tigers latest trade of Justin Wilson and Alex Avila.   It’s painful for fans to accept the season is essentially over, especially with August and September still to go.   I won’t accept it until the Tigers are mathematically eliminated.   Could this be the miracle season?   Regardless, the Tigers organization has accepted it.   Trading quality players for prospects is the evidence.   In return for Wilson and Avila, the Tigers get a 23-year-old third base prospect, Jeimer Candelario (could play first as well), and am 18-year-old shortstop prospect, Isaac Parades (could play second,, too).   Coupled with the trade of J.D. Martinez for other infield prospects, you wonder what does it mean?   What it means is…

– Get younger and less expensive
– Forsee Miguel Cabrera as future DH when Victor is done
– Nick Castellanos moves to first, perhaps
– Ian Kinsler is done, if not this year, then next
– Maybe a prospect moves to the outfield
– More prospects for future trades

True fans are always fans, through good times and bad.   Stay true, Tigers fans!
