Offseason Moves the Detroit Tigers Should Have Made

Ilitch has given Tigers' fans a reason to celebrate.

Detroit Tigers fans have been very fortunate over the past few years, since owner Mike Ilitch has been willing to spend whatever it takes for the Tigers to bring home a World Series title.

With Ilitch's willingness to open his wallet, the Tigers' front office, led by CEO, president and general manager Dave Dombrowski, has made some bold free-agent signings, along with shrewd trades to ensure that the Tigers can win. 

The Tigers have made two key moves this offseason that position them to be top contenders entering the 2013 season: signing free-agent outfielder Torii Hunter to a two-year deal and re-signing starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez to a five-year, $80 million deal.

My opinion has always been that even though the Tigers are in a "win now" mode, they should always be looking ahead to make sure the roster still has youth on it, along with flexibility in terms of payroll and future players.

While the Tigers' roster will continue to be evaluated up until the trade deadline, there are still some moves that the Tigers should have made this offseason.
