The Tigers have signed SS Carlos Guillen to a 3 year contract extension. He's the best shortstop in the league this year. He has 15 Win Shares so far compared to Rich Aurilia's 3 for the Mariners. Before the season I wrote that it didn't have a problem with acquiring Aruilia as Guillen does have a history of injuries, but I had a HUGE problem with giving up Guillen - especially for the crap we got for him. Guillen would have started the year as the utility infielder who could actually PLAY BASEBALL. When it became clear that Aurilia couldn't hit, no problem, in goes Guillen. Just a totally shortsighted move to trade your starting shortstop entering the prime of his hitting career for nothing.
