New numbers, and other questions

Posted by Danny Knobler December 10, 2007 12:07PM

DETROIT -- Some questions are easy to answer, some not so easy.

But here's one answer I was able to get quickly from the Tigers:

Miguel Cabrera will be wearing uniform number 24, just as he did in Florida. Edgar Renteria will be #8, and Jacque Jones will be #19 (wonder if he knows that was the cursed Juan Gonzalez number?). No decision yet on Dontrelle Willis, because he wore 35 in Florida but that belongs to Justin Verlander.

Some other questions that have come up in the last few days:

-- Yes, Brandon Inge would make a nice super-utility guy, but get over it. It's not happening, and it wasn't going to happen no matter what Inge told the Tigers. They began their efforts to trade him the minute the Cabrera-Willis trade was done. They don't want his $6 mill a year on their payroll, and they know there's no way a guy who has been a full-time starter for several years is going to go back to a utility role with the same team.

-- Yes, they did (briefly) discuss the idea of having Inge eventually replace Pudge as the catcher, but dismissed it. He doesn't want to catch. Yes, the idea of Cabrera in left field came up (with Inge staying at third), but they dismissed that, too. Remember, they want Cabrera to stay here for a long time. Supposedly, he's not excited about playing the outfield. There are even questions about whether he can play the outfield anymore. Not going to happen. For now, Cabrera is the third baseman. If he's moving anywhere, it's to first base, with Guillen shifting to third.

-- Edward Campusano is no longer a Tiger. He was the Rule 5 pick last year. He got hurt in spring training. They could have kept him on the roster, but they didn't. He's gone, and it will go down as (a very small amount of) wasted money.

-- No, you're not going to get Dan Haren for anything the Tigers could offer. If Oakland does trade Haren (and it's still not a certainty that the A's will move him), it means they're rebuilding and would want cheap young prospects. As you might have noticed, the Tigers just traded their cheap young prospects. Yes, the Tiger rotation remains a question, but they're going to have to count on Willis, Bonderman etc. to rebound.

Not sure if the player uniform numbers will hold true!?

#24 is the number Hessman used when called up from Toledo. I would guess to make Cabrera happy, he will get to keep his Marlins number.

#19 is Timo's tiger number and he is in the Toledo system for $150,000 salary in the minor leagues and a maximum of $525,000 in the major league. So, unless he makes the team in spring training, J. Jones will probably get it.

#8 for Renteria is open.

D=Train Willis will def. not get his old Marlin number since it is Verlanders!

In that case maybe 34 is better. Is anyone using that?

Thanks! I've never been one to pay attention to the numbers on baseball teams. Off hand I know Verlander is 35, Guillen is 9, Granderson is 28, Bonderman is 38, Rodriguez is 7, and that's about it. Maybin was 4. Oh, Polanco is 14.

I heard that he will wear #36 because he likes Rasheed Wallace and they will have the same number!
