Breaking Tigers trade news!

WXYT-AM (1270) is reporting that the Tigers have acquired first baseman Sean Casey - a long-awaited left-handed bat - from the Pittsburgh Pirates, in exchange for minor-league pitcher Brian Rogers.

Here's the shocker with the deal, however: With Casey coming to Detroit, the Tigers have decided to send Chris Shelton down to Triple-A Toledo (which is something I know The Daily Fungo has advocated). From Babe Ruth in April to Crash Davis in August? Ouch, babe.

And the news just hit ESPN.com. Here are the details.

Are the Tigers still alive for Soriano? Considering they gave up a Double-A pitcher of little note (at least to me), it would appear that all of Dave Dombrowski's bullets are still in the chamber. I think this is it for them today, but I suppose we should stay tuned.
