WHAT'S THE HURRY? Jim Leyland is telling WDFN that Jacob Turner will get a good long look in spring training. That's not news. The Tigers firmly cling to the TINSTAAPP (TANSTAAPP!) concept. They did the same with Justin Verlander (great result), Jair Jurrjens (good result), Rick Porcello (jury's still out) and Andrew Miller (whoops). If a player has the talent to get out big league hitters, wasting his bullets in the minors is a mistake. Imagine the benefit Washington would have reaped with another ten Stephen Strasburg starts, instead of starting him in the minors.
