Sure, Take Him!

I'm assuming that this is an April Fools' joke?
The word is, Detroit is tracking the Nats reliever [Chad Cordero] in case their bullpen falters them in the first half of the season. If that happens, then the Tigers would start serious trade talks for Cordero (provided he’s healthy and pitching well), the Nats closer since coming to Washington in 2005.

A source close to the Tigers said the team already talked to Nats General Manager Jim Bowden during spring training about Cordero. Look for those talks to heat up if the Nats are out of the race and the Tigers’ bullpen is struggling.

I'm sure the Tigers would just LOVE to have a closer who's nursing shoulder tendinitis (read: he's about to die!!!!). I'm going to go out on a limb and say that contrary to this report, those talks won't be heating up in the next couple o' days.
