Red Sox, Tigers consider Lugo for Willis

The idea of the Red Sox trading Julio Lugo to the Tigers for Dontrelle Willis has been on the table for a while, and officials familiar with the talks said it's still out there this week. Both teams are said to be calling around, checking carefully into both players to see whether it would be worth swapping one bad contract for another.

The Red Sox have little interest in keeping Lugo, who they signed to a $36 million, four-year contract two winters back (he's owed $18 million over the next two years, with a vesting option for 2011). The Tigers owe Willis $22 million over the next two years, and some people in the organization believe there's very little chance that he'll bounce back from his disastrous 2008 season.

The Tigers do need a shortstop, and if they can be convinced that Lugo can play the position adequately, they may go ahead and try to make the deal.

I hope the Sox make this deal. As everyone else thinks, Lugo has to go. Willis may not be done and he's worth the risk.

I also echo the majority in saying this should be slam-dunk move for the Sox if Detroit bites on it.....Lugo has shown he can't play in Boston - and while Willis has done basically the same in Detroit, he is still young enough and there is enough 'upside' in this deal that really makes it interesting - if  your Theo and you can get this deal done - you let your coaches work with DTrain all winter and see what he can do in Spring Training - if he isn't getting anyone out - try and make him a lefty specialist - if that doesn't work send him to AAA and let the fans in Pawtucket get autographs from a formerly great pitcher!
