2) Sanchez is a solid pitcher and Infante is a career .276 hitter and solid in the field. Both are immediate upgrades who should be around for a bit.
You're giving the Tigers wayyyyyy to much credit here. I bet people like you were saying the same thing when they trade Jurrjens away for that bum Renteria.
Actually, I was pissed they traded for Retcharia. The idea is to get talent that will be around for a bit, not some guy with suspect defensive ability who is clearly on the downside of his career. For the most part, Dombrowski has done pretty well in trades. Remember Maybin being untouchable and was going to be a SUPASTAR? He's hitting .221 with 4 HR in 88 games for SD.
