OK, so it wasn't a full-blown tryout on the part of Omar Vizquel, but I wouldn't blame the Tigers for at least entertaining the idea of trying to coax the 47 year-old coach into maybe possibly playing a few games to give the Tigers a possible boost out of position that has combined to produce 0.6 fWAR between Eugenio Suarez, Andrew Romine, Danny Worth and Alex Gonzalez.
Look at that form. Soft hands still in tact, the footwork looks a little rusty, but the can be smoothed out with a trip to the minors for a week or two. All Omar needs is a shot. Unless he was in the middle of a Bruce Lee impersonation and a baseball coincidentally happened to be heading his way. In which case, forget I said anything.
