"The only thing that has been consistent about us is our inconsistency."

Manager Jim Leyland said that to Fox Sports Detroit after a May 17 loss to Minnesota, which pretty much sums up the season the Detroit Tigers have had so far.

The Tigers have continued to sputter under .500, and now more than a quarter of the way through the season, it might be time to think about making some moves.

Something just hasn't clicked with the Tigers this season. When the offense has flourished, the bullpen has struggled. When the the bullpen and rotation get hot, the bats cool off. There is something missing for the team expected to make back-to-back trips to the postseason for the first time in nearly 80 years.

I don't think any drastic moves need to be made, like firing Leyland, as many people have suggested. No superstars like Miguel Cabrera or Justin Verlander need to be moved. But something has to change, because if Detroit continues to struggle with its team intact, it might be too late in a few months.

Here are the 10 options the Tigers could use as trade bait this season.
