Tigers meet with Ordonez


Recommended Posts

January 25, 2005

MIAMI (AP) -- Free-agent outfielder Magglio Ordonez met Monday with Detroit Tigers owner Mike Ilitch and his top staff.

Tigers president Dave Dombrowski and manager Alan Trammell also attended the meeting, as did agent Scott Boras and associate Mike Fiore.

``We were going to go up to Detroit to meet with them. The owner apparently had a business meeting down in Florida,'' Boras said. ``We decided to move the meeting up a day.

``It went well. The Tigers talked about their plans for the future, their interest in Magglio, the advances they made last season.''

Ordonez, a four-time All-Star who turns 31 on Friday, hit .292 last season with nine homers and 37 RBIs in 202 at-bats. A career .307 hitter with 187 homers, he missed 36 games after injuring his left knee May 19, then went on the disabled list for good on July 22 with bone marrow edema.

``We've actually had a number of calls prior to this meeting,'' Boras said after returning home to California. ``Their doctors have talked with Magglio's doctors. They're certainly comfortable he'll be ready to go by spring training.''

When reached Tuesday morning, Dombrowski declined to provide any details about the meeting.

``Other than to say we met and had a nice visit, I don't have anything else to say,'' Dombrowski said

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
