Todd Jones signs with the Tigers

I'm sure, by now, most of you know that Todd Jones is going back to Detroit where he will be the closer for the Tigers.

The Detroit Tigers agreed Thursday to an $11 million, two-year contract with free agent Todd Jones, returning the veteran closer to the team he pitched for from 1997-2001.

Jones was 1-5 with a 2.10 ERA and 40 saves last season for the Florida Marlins, then became a free agent.

Fantastic.  He deserves the contract he is getting from Detroit.  He was the only member of the 2005 Marlins bullpen that was worth anything and he was almost priceless last year.

He should have a good 2006 pitching in that national park the Tigers call home.

Good Luck Todd and thanks for the memories.
