Dealing Scherzer opposite of Tigers' win-now mentality

"I don't want to be traded," Scherzer said. Maybe the Tigers are open to trading Max Scherzer this winter, as has been widely reported. Scherzer, speaking to MLB Network Radio, said he wants to remain with the team despite the chance to become a free agent with his contract expiring after the 2014 season. Not if we're to put any stock whatsoever into, well, pretty much every recent transaction made by the Tigers. Maybe marketing a guy who is 29, just won the American League Cy Young Award handily, is a Scott Boras client and is eligible for free agency in fewer than 12 months makes all the sense in the world.
