PostSubject: Gambler is on waivers   Tue Aug 26, 2008 1:49 pm

Kenny Rogers placed on waivers, could be traded soon
His experience in postseason is a plus
BY JON PAUL MOROSI FREE PRESS SPORTS WRITER August 26, 2008


If a trade involving Tigers left-hander Kenny Rogers is going to happen before the end of this season, it likely will occur within the next several days.

The deadline to set postseason rosters is Sunday, and multiple officials from other teams believe the Tigers will consider trading Rogers before then.

Rogers said Monday that he was not aware of any trade discussions involving him. And he did not appear concerned with the prospect of being dealt.

"Dealing in hypotheticals is very difficult -- I'm not one to do that," Rogers said. "I haven't thought about a deadline. I'm not worried about one, that's for sure."

The Tigers placed Rogers -- and several other players -- on trade waivers Friday. By this afternoon, the team will know which of them cleared waivers and which were claimed.

If Rogers clears waivers, he could be traded to any team. If Rogers is claimed, the Tigers could attempt to work out a deal with the claiming club.

Rogers allowed six earned runs in Sunday's loss, but his experience -- including 23 scoreless innings in the 2006 postseason -- could make him an intriguing addition for a contender.

He has two characteristics of players often traded in late August: He is due a reasonable base salary over the remainder of this season (roughly $1.5 million), and he is unsigned after this year.

Rogers' contract includes no-trade protection to six teams, including Philadelphia and Texas. Rogers often has stated that he wants to finish his career in Detroit. Upon re-signing in November, he said, "In my heart of hearts, I had no desire to pitch anywhere else."

Yet, it does not appear Rogers has asked team officials to keep him off the trade market in all circumstances.

"I don't make their decisions for them," Rogers said Monday. "I would never try to do that. I know it's hard enough to run this club."

Rogers is 9-11 with a 5.09 ERA in 27 starts. He has allowed opposing hitters a .312 batting average since the All-Star Game, according to STATS LLC.

When asked to assess Rogers' performance the past month, manager Jim Leyland said, "At times, it's a little tough for him. At other times, everything's pretty good. But he's always been a great-conditioned athlete. ... For the most part, he's always ready to go. The good part about him is he's got a way to figure things out. He can do some other things to get a hitter out."

I never got optimistic. After 0-7 I pretty much gave up.

But it would be nice to see the fans support the Tigers

Too many no shows and people leaving early during the Indians Series


Must have been 10,000-12,000 people left [ out of an announced crowd of 38,000 plus; more like 32,000 actual.] by the ninth inning
