    Tigers Tigers Acquire Fister

    SI.com's Jon Heyman reports that the Tigers have completed a deal for the Mariners' Doug Fister.
    They'll also get David Pauley, with the Mariners acquiring Charlie Furbush, Casper Wells and third base prospect Francisco Martinez. Fister boasts a 3.33 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 21 starts this season for the Mariners and will be arbitration-eligible for the first time over the winter. Pauley is in the midst of a career season, posting a 2.15 ERA and 0.99 WHIP over 39 games.
    Tigers were smart not to go all in on Ubaldo Jimenez and they got the cheaper Fister who is already familiar with AL hitters. Fister is not a strikeout guy but he's got good stuff and is still learning how to pitch. He's a good 4th starter for the Tigers and its made their rotation deeper. Getting Pauley in a career season is a bonus for the Tigers who did need relief help as well. The Tigers give the M's Casper Wells who is 27 and has had some success at the MLB level. Martinez is a 20 yr old who needs to develop patience at the plate. Furbush can step in right away for the M's. Good trade for both teams but this really helps the Tigers taking the Central.

    pitcher-hitter familiarity generally favors the hitter.

    The Tigers gave up a pretty good prospect in Martinez to get Fister. Wells and Furbush have major-league experience and could help the Mariners. David Pauley can start or relieve, but has been working out of the Mariners' bullpen. He seems to be tiring a bit this season. His ERA is over 5 in July.

    Doug Fister must be the happiest man in the league right now. Miguel Cabrera's left arm has more offense than the entire Mariners' lineup.

    Tigers sent Chance Ruffin to the M's to complete the trade. Ruffin has a minor league ERA of 2.00 and a 11.4 K/9.

    Sooooo, Fister has an even lower ERA and is striking out everyone. Save everyone in Seattle!
