The Detroit Tigers absolutely made the right choice in trading for David Price. The Tigers effectively swap out Drew Smyly, a decent pitcher, for a proven ace, while only losing a replaceable center fielder. The return, however, is fantastic, as the Tigers now boast the last three American League Cy Young winners on their rotation. They have always had the hitting to compete in the postseason, and now they have the star pitching capable of carrying them to the World Series.
