The Tigers are interested in Martin Prado

Jon Paul Morosi reports that the Tigers are interested in Martin Prado.

That’s fine as far as it goes. The Braves seem intent on dealing him. The Tigers second base situation is pretty poor and they could use a leadoff guy, which Prado could do.  Nice fit. That is, until I got to the part where Morosi says that Tigers would consider trading Delmon Young for him.

Which is less than fair. Young has some power, but he is seriously on-base challenged and plays poor defense.  Which of course makes him a total Braves candidate because they just seem to like those kinds of dudes.   One would hope that Atlanta would ask for more than just Delmon Young, but I could totally feature a straight up trade.

Sigh.
