Heyman: Tigers to teams: Open to trading either Scherzer or Porcello

How to Prepare Leeks Video and Steps | Real Simple

Some rival general managers remain skeptical that the Tigers, a team that’s spent to win in recent years, would actually trade Scherzer. But as we reported last month, Tigers people have been weighing that very possibility.

The issue apparently is that Scherzer, who is represented by Scott Boras, has only a year remaining before he’s a free agent.

I am confused about which story we are supposed to comment on here.

This would be the time. Tangling with Boras and getting stuck with a killer contract when Max's arm inevitabley explodes is the not the way to go. Great time to get younger and more athletic. Get some outfielders.

I assume that, if the Tigers are unable to trade one of the pitchers, he will have his stalk sliced lengthwise while someone rinses the grit out of his folds. They mean business in Detroit.

Isn't one of the problems with trying to trade him is that one should presume that the other teams are also aware that he has one year left on his contract, and that his agent is Scott Boras.

Why yes, the proverbial cat is out of the bag! That sneaky Boras trying to pull a fast one.

I am open to trading away my house or a box of Cheerios.

What's the point of the Fielder contract, etc. if you are not going to be in "win now" mode? Won't they just try to win with Scherzer and just collect the pick afterwards (or trade him in July if the season is a disaster)?

Exactly. But an article headlined "Tigers willing to trade Rick Porcello" isn't going to get Heyman any clicks...

Tigers are expected to be willing to consider the possibility of trading Scherzer!

EDIT: Snark aside, it is the perfect time to trade Porcello, shift Smyly (or somebody) to the rotation, save some money to spend on a LF.

As a friend of mine has observed every team is open to trading anybody. Provided the return is a better player, a top prospect and cash.
