A sometimes-irreverent look at Detroit's Boys of Summer, the Tigers, as they try to return to the top of the American League Central.

No movement, morning of deadline day

The Tigers weren't one of the sale shoppers lining up Monday night to get in on the swap meet around Major League Baseball, and they don't appear to have any specific urgency to get another trade done before Tuesday's 4 p.m. deadline, either.

As CBS' Danny Knobler reported Monday morning, business is slow:

As I wrote yesterday, the Tigers are apparently still looking for another right-handed hitter, and were reportedly one of the teams that made an offer on Cubs outfielder Reed Johnson Monday night. He ended up going to the Braves.

Another logical move for the Tigers would be a guy like Mets utilityman Scott Hairston, but he may have raised the asking price with a pair of homers on Monday night. But, as ESPN's Buster Olney mentioned, there may not be a fit between the teams, either.
