LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The Carl Crawford deal wasn't good news for the Yankees or the Angels.

It may well have been good news for the Tigers.

The reason is simple. The Tigers badly want to re-sign Magglio Ordonez, and until the Red Sox agreed to terms with Crawford on a seven-year, $142 million deal, they were considered a threat to take Ordonez away.

In fact, as recently as Wednesday afternoon, one baseball official familiar with Boston's plans said the Sox were focused on Ordonez. Obviously, that focus changed by Wednesday night.

While the Tigers want Ordonez back, club officials maintain that they don't want him on anything more than a one-year contract. The Tigers remain concerned about Ordonez's health, and particularly the right ankle he fractured in August.

Ordonez worked out for the Tigers on Wednesday, and agent Scott Boras insisted that the ankle should not be an issue.

"He's 100 percent," Boras said. "He's ready to go."

Boras suggested that there's a large market for Ordonez, and while he didn't name any teams, sources said that the Red Sox, Phillies and Orioles have all been involved, to some extent.

But the Orioles have dropped out, the Red Sox now have Crawford, and multiple club officials familiar with the Phillies said they are not focused on Ordonez and intend instead to spend lightly on a right-handed hitting outfielder who can platoon with the left-handed hitting Domonic Brown.

Some people have suggested that the Rangers could become involved with Ordonez, but officials familiar with their plans say they have little interest, and that they're focused instead on bringing back Vladimir Guerrero to be their designated hitter.
While it's possible other teams could emerge, it all points right now to Ordonez returning to the Tigers, something he probably wouldn't mind and something they definitely would like.

And while the Red Sox are drooling over a batting order that will include Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez, Dustin Pedroia, Kevin Youkilis and David Ortiz, the Tigers are dreaming of a middle of the order that includes Ordonez, Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez.

Maggs would be a great fit for the Dodgers.  Has L.A. (the real one, not the yobs from Anaheim) shown any interest?
