Text  



So much trade-deadline news, so little time.

Instead of tired, old analysis, what if we instead revel in the warm and sustained standing ovation the great fans of Detroit gave to their departing center fielder, Austin Jackson, as he jogged in from the outfield in the middle of an opposing batter’s plate appearance?

As you know, Jackson was headed to Seattle in a huge, three-way deal, between the Tigers, Mariners, and Rays, involving stud southpaw David Price.

More on the big trade here and here.
