According to MLive.com, Kenny may not retire and he wants to play for Detroit, and nobody else.

See Steve Kornacki's story by clicking :

If Rogers pitches in 2009, it will be for Tigers


“It takes pitching, hitting and defense. Any two can win. All three make you unbeatable.”

Umm....no. We don't want him. He's been a good guy and all for us, but he's just not an effective pitcher at this point.


Coming Soon: A better signature!

He's done. No way Kenny. Call it a career. Bring in fresh blood into the rotation!
Pitching coach? hmmm... why not give it a try.

For What?

10 million bucks a year!


Be lucky if he wins 5 games next year


That's 2 million bucks a year!


Lambert could win 5 games


For 375,000

League Minimum

Kenny Rogers: Pitching in Detroit is my first choice

Kenny Rogers spoke at length with the Free Press in late September. Here are portions of that interview:

QUESTION: What are going to be the big factors that determine whether you're going to pitch another year?


ANSWER: Same as always: Are you motivated to do the things it takes to get ready? Are you able to have the kind of success you want? I'm not good at failure. I don't take it very well.

Q: Will your family (Rogers lives near Dallas) be an important factor in the decision?


A: It is for every player. My wife's always said, 'Whatever you want to do,' even though I know what she'd like. It's my decision, but that's a factor I take into account. There's so many things you think about as a player.

Q: Do you feel like this is the only place where you would pitch in 2009?


A: I think everyone knows this is my first choice. There's not even a close second.

Q: And if they say, 'It's been great, but ...'


A: There's nothing that they would say or think that would change my opinion of the Tigers. The Detroit organization has been great to me. I want them to do what's best for them. Whatever they decide, I'm completely fine with. It's my decision, too, but there's nothing they can do to diminish my appreciation and respect for them.

Q: If they say you're not in their plans for next year, would that automatically end it for you?


A: I wouldn't say that. I would never say that. If you want to play, you want to play.

Yep. After that blood clot in 2007 he was done. 2006 was great, but he's way too old to ever get back to even mediocre form. Sorry Kenny.

Not For 8 million A YEAR


If Kenny wants to sign for the minimum; Maybe

But not for a multiyear deal

But he has to be pitching on fumes


He may as well go out a winner if the Phillies win the WS


I can't see him pitching much longer


And I hate to see the Tigers pay any pitcher over 40 big bucks

Too Risky

But the Tigers already signed him


Too Late Now

But why offer contracts to guys like Rogers or Moyer

Tigers need to develop their own pitching


Like Tampa Bay Did

Sorry to anyone who likes D-train, but this was a BONER trade. He still has to develop his pitching skills? No multimillions until he does!!!

The Tigers already signed him to an extension last winter


Best they can hope for is for Willis to regain his form

Either That or teach him to hit


At least Miggy was worth it
