New Met Yoenis Cespedes told ESPN Deportes' Marly Rivera he found out about the move via TV and said about the Tigers: "I don’t think it was a good decision to throw in the towel this early. There’s still a lot of baseball to be played." 'I feel no pressure'

Tigers GM: Starting pitching not deep

Dave Dombrowski traded away three of Detroit's top players, and it's because he didn't think the Tigers could win a title: "However you would like to say it, unless you are in a position to win a world championship -- that's where we are at this time. In my heart, I didn't think we were there with the club."
