I know my Tigers are up 9-0 to you right now, and I feel a little bit bad, but we really need this game. Heck, we need to sweep. Our magical season has gotten ugly in a hurry, and we need to get ourselves right. I'm hoping you're our medicine.
If it helps, I think Hayden Penn is going to be real good someday. As a Tigers fan, I've suffered through much worse than you all have (come talk to me after six more years of losing), and part of that suffering involves watching talented young pitchers struggle - because the toil does bear fruit, eventually. Just ask Jeremy Bonderman, Mike Maroth, and Nate Robertson. However, Justin Verlander missed the memo that you're supposed to suck your rookie year; he's been awesome all year and will probably win Rookie of the Year.
Speaking of Bonderman, I'll trade you him and Monroe and a prospect for Miguel Tejada, if you want. I think it would be a great deal for both of us.
