Why would any Tigers fans be unhappy about this? It's almost literally a free move. If he's great, he gets to compete for a bullpen role, if he sucks, status quo.
I've always thought Brandon Inge and Jose Valverde were such similar personalities.
Tiger all non-Yankee fans have a long history of detesting their closer beyond all reason at even the slightest change in fortune, no matter how much he's done for them. It happened with Willie Hernandez almost before the ink had dried on his Cy Young and MVP, it happened with Henneman, it happened with Todd Jones, it happened with Matt Anderson (even though he sucked practically always), and it's happened with Valverde.
The Tigers haven't really had a stud closer in the 90s-00s-10s mold which is odd given that they haven't generally been shy about spending money.
