Flurry of moves may be just the beginning for Tigers, Red Sox

Even after the wild flurry of moves that restated the two teams' intention to roll on to the 2015 World Series without the aces who led them into their most recent postseason appearances, history says they might just have something really crazy left in their bag of tricks.

Versatility may be Perez's ticket to Majors
